About the job

Job title: Back End Engineer Elixir/Phoenix
Salary range: Competitive!
Position on remote work: SF, NYC, Plano TX, Remote (US only)
Qualifications or experience required:

You will own backend feature development end-to-end, spanning data models, testing, scalability, operability and ongoing metrics.

  • Functional programming e.g. Elixir, Clojure or Haskell
  • Ruby on Rails
  • Python
  • PostgreSQL

What the successful job applicant will be working on: Building cutting-edge systems in Elixir & Phoenix spanning eCommerce, supply chain and fulfillment automation to name a few.

About the interview process

  • Quick call to introduce ourselves
  • Technical phone screen with myself or someone on my team
  • A morning or afternoon of onsite interviews where you’ll do a few more technical interviews (no whiteboards though!) and get to meet the team
  • Final decision

Don’t you also have an office in Chicago? I’m not looking, just curious…


Sadly I’m in Shanghai/China.


Hi @sribe! Good catch! Yes, we do have a large Chicago office too :slight_smile: I’d update the main post if I could.


Hi @Aetherus! We do have a large presence in China, but unfortunately this role is US only. Thanks for your interest!
