Owl Labs – Posted by alanna.lyles@owllabs.com Anywhere

Job Description

Owl Labs is seeking a backend engineer to join our team. The ideal candidate has strong experience with application architecture, Postgres, and Code as Infrastructure. The ideal candidate has shown initiative in growing systems and can tell the story of what worked and what didn’t work, and how you overcame technical limitations. This role is inherently collaborative; you will work with engineering, marketing, design, and product teams, and interact with colleagues throughout all levels of the company. We are actively looking to increase the breadth of our team by finding candidates with strengths to complement ours.

In this role, you will impact some of the company’s most important product development goals as you develop the technology that is at the core of Owl Labs’ groundbreaking products.

 

What You’ll Do

We are looking for a backend engineer who will help build new ecosystems around our tremendously successful core of robotics-inspired IoT products. You’ll create new applications and build infrastructure that enables new interactive experiences for our customers. You will also help maintain and monitor some of our existing systems. On a daily basis, you’ll carry out some of the various engineering tasks as listed below:

  • Create new applications that run on our hardware platforms that interact with both the underlying hardware and our Cloud endpoints, as well as third-party endpoints.
  • Add new IoT functionality & features that expand the capabilities and the value of our hardware products.
  • Build new integrations with third-party vendors (e.g. Slack, Zoom, GCal).
  • Proactively monitor performance and system health with observability and AWS tooling.
  • Automate our infrastructure and delivery pipelines, and create tooling so we can all work faster.

 

Qualifications

More than a candidate that checks every box, we’re looking for people who are excited to work, learn, and grow at Owl Labs—no matter their background or how they identify. If that’s you, we hope you’ll apply for this role.

Requirements:

  • BS/MS in Computer Science, Engineering, et al. or a great portfolio of web-based applications.
  • Experience creating non-trivial platforms on AWS (or comparable cloud).
  • Proficiency in NodeJS, and ability to develop clean modular code.
  • Experience with SQL and No-SQL data stores.
  • Appreciation for building applications that show empathy for the customers using them, and the other developers who work with it.
  • Ability to design and build from scratch.
  • Skilled at jumping into an existing code base and building on top of it.
  • Desire and ability to stretch beyond the environments, frameworks, and stacks that you’re already most comfortable with.
  • Proactive and clear communication abilities.
  • Appreciation for documentation.
  • You are a maker, and you do what it takes to ship, and iterate on what you learn.

 

The best candidates will have:

  • Experience with Honeycomb and sampling.
  • Experience with PostgreSQL, Redis, clustering, sharding, and fail-over strategies.

 

Owl Labs is over 40% remote and headquarters are based in Boston, MA. This role is a full time remote position.
