Location: Remote in Boston / MA
You’ll join the team primarily responsible for scalability, security and availability of our systems, but, as a small but growing software engineering organization, this role is not strictly limited to any single part of our product or stack. You'll also have an opportunity to ship valuable customer-facing features.
We have a hugely supportive and collaborative engineering team that takes great pride in the work we do and the challenges we solve. We’re eager to help grow and nurture each other’s abilities and also create an environment where we have the ability to do our very best work.
You can work fully remotely from anywhere in MA with a preference for being based in the Greater Boston Area area so you can make use of our Tines office space in downtown Boston to meet up with other members of the MA engineering team when you wish.
- Work closely with colleagues to build the right solutions to the problems our customers face.
- Make valuable changes in our codebase in your first week, and see them live in production minutes after merging them.
- Write and review high quality, well tested code to ensure that we’re creating a stable product for our customers, and a stress-free codebase for ourselves.
- Identify areas for improvement, both in our codebase and in how we work, and share the responsibility of making our team better.
- Own the problems you’re solving - and the software you write to solve them - all the way to production and beyond, responding to customer feedback to improve those solutions.
- Re-architecting how we schedule jobs for execution to avoid resource starvation in our multi-tenant environment.
- Re-implementing our event data storage to improve our background job throughput and increase stability.
- Collaborating with our Product and Design teams to build out entire product features, like roles, time-based implode and just-in-time user provisioning from early tech plans to final UI fixes.
- Collaborating with our Customer Success team to simplify the upgrade process for customers with self-hosted installations.
- Writing a blog post to share something interesting we learned with the community.
- Profiling our test suite to diagnose performance issues and ensure our feedback loop stays fast.
- Creating a Tines story to automate the management of our DNS records.
- 1-3 years as a professional software engineer. This is a role for software engineers earlier in their careers who are excited to learn and grow their experience.
- You’ll need direct experience of building and delivering software using a high-level programming language. Our interview process includes a Byteboard exercise which involves adding features to a small command-line app, so you should feel very comfortable working at that level of technical complexity. Our main languages are Ruby and TypeScript, but you don’t have to be familiar with those - we value curiosity and an eagerness to learn. We’ll also cover the cost of education material to bring you up to speed.
- Your abilities matter, not your education or exactly where you’ve worked. We just need you to show us that you have accumulated the foundational skills and knowledge needed to succeed.
- Cybersecurity knowledge isn’t required. We take application security seriously, but for this role you don’t need any experience in that area.
- This role is broad, not specialized. While your main focus will be on the scalability, security and availability of our systems, you’ll work right across our backend, frontend and infrastructure. You don’t need to have experience in all of these areas, but you will need to be excited to pitch in anywhere when needed, with the support of your teammates. This allows us to be more effective as a team, and provides a lot of opportunities for you to learn.
- We’re focused on the most important problems, not the most interesting ones. Your time and energy are limited, so in order to succeed you’ll need to spend it where it will make a difference. We view technologies as a means to an end, and stick to simple, common tools - Ruby, Rails, React, TypeScript, Postgres, Redis and Docker. Our main languages are Ruby and TypeScript, but you don’t have to be familiar with those - we value curiosity and an eagerness to learn. We’ll also cover the cost of education material to bring you up to speed.
- We work healthily and sustainably. We work reasonable hours, we take our holidays and we plan our workloads realistically. No matter how excited we get by a project, it’s more important to not get burnt out from overwork.
- Your contributions will be obvious. On a small team like ours, you don’t have to spend a tonne of time and energy making sure your work is seen - your impact will be clear to everyone.
- We’re building an inclusive, supportive team. We have a wonderfully wide spectrum of colleagues at Tines, and we treat them all with kindness and respect - we expect that you will too. We don’t hire people that treat their colleagues badly, no matter how talented they are.
