What you bring to the table:
* Scale data architectures to power new use cases i.e. evaluating and introducing best-fit data components such as Kafka on Confluent, Amazon Athena with S3 and/or ElastiCache for Redis.
* Build upon the foundation of existing databases, data architectures and data components to support and enhance the productivity of the entire engineering team.
* Scale databases (we run on MySQL) for a fast-growing environment i.e. planning and executing online DDL operations to evolving MySQL schemas for tables with millions of rows powering millions of transactions.
* Design and build backend systems that power our authentication experience while taking into consideration empathy towards our customers, developers, and users.
* Develop internal SLOs and SLIs to drive service reliability and to support external SLAs.
* Collaborate with other engineers to optimize our software engineering processes.

We are looking for someone who has:
* 4+ years of experience working as a backend and/or infrastructure engineer in a fast-paced complex environment
* Expert-level experience working with MySQL and Python in production (Go/Node is a plus)
* Strong foundation in database design, distributed system design and general backend
* Experience with cloud-hosted data components e.g. AWS RDS, AWS ElastiCache, etc.

We are looking for people who share the same philosophy, perform under pressure and are comfortable with frequent change requests.

We are fully remote, though we would prefer this role specifically to be in a timezone where we can have more hours overlap with the North American team members due to the need for frequent communication and collaboration.
