What You’ll Do

  • Play a key role in leading our backend tech stack and architecture to support fast iteration and high quality. Be the go-to person for one or multiple teams as they design and implement new systems/features.
  • Work closely with other engineers, product managers, and designers to collaborate on the features that will help our users better navigate the world of autism care.
  • Design and implement backend software systems that support our families, providers, and Elemy administrators.
  • Work closely with front-end engineers to seamlessly integrate backend APIs.  
  • Uphold standards for quality by performing code reviews, fixing bugs, creating automated tests, and monitoring performance.

Who You Are

  • You are an owner and you deeply care about the quality of our products. You believe in high quality software that delight and enable all our users.
  • You can work cross-functionally with product managers, designers, and other engineers to break down product requirements and maintain visibility on your work.

  • Proficiency in Java, Spring, Kotlin and GraphQL with the ability to create clean architectures that focus on simplicity and enable fast and high quality feature development for an entire team
  • Experience building APIs and associated authentication mechanisms. Experience with Okta OAuth and SAML a definite plus.
  • Some experience across full-stack development is a plus - maybe you haven’t mastered any one side but you have a breadth of understanding that is useful.
  • Bachelors / Masters degree in Computer Science or related field preferred
