What you will be doing

Most of your day will be dedicated to software design, research, and coding. On typical projects, you will have a lot of freedom and you will be paired with another team member. Our team is made up of very experienced engineers, some with more than 10 years of experience. By working together you will learn from each other along the way. You will have an enormous impact on making our API service faster, more scalable and more flexible.

You will add new features to the service and find ways to make the existing ones perform orders of magnitude faster. Our customers have millions of users; they use Stream for mission-critical features such as showing content and exposing core functionality of their application. Building stable and reliable software is not just an option: as a member of the development team, you will design and write state-of-the-art software, follow best practices, measure everything and be responsible for deployment to production. You will also spend part of your time talking to our customers and help them to use Stream in their app.

The challenges

  • Distributed databases: we built our own data store for feeds and for chat
  • Real-time messaging
  • High performance: our API responses are in the 10ms range
  • High scalability: we use sharding, master-master, and master-slave to ensure scalability
  • High availability: our entire infrastructure is designed and operated to survive entire data center crashes
  • Multi-region: we deploy our service on 4 different continents

You have

  • Proficiency in Go
  • 5+ years as a backend developer
  • Experience with high traffic and high-performance applications
  • Good knowledge of relational databases
  • Experience with building HTTP APIs
  • Experience managing your own projects and work in a team

Our tech stack

At Stream we use a wide collection of technologies to offer highly optimized and available features to our customers. Over the years we have experimented with different programming languages, frameworks, databases, and libraries. Here is a short list of the technology that we currently use. Do not worry if you do not master them all or if you do not see your favorite tool or language, you will have the chance to be exposed to most and to convince us to expand the list:

  • Go, gRPC, RocksDB, Python
  • Postgresql, RabbitMQ
  • AWS, Puppet, CloudFormation
  • Grafana, Graphite, ELK, Jaeger
  • Redis, Memcached
