“Riffyn is on a mission to reshape science, join us in pioneering the future!”

A Mission to Reshape Science

Breakthrough discoveries once occurred when scientists like Alexander Fleming noticed a halo of dead bacteria surrounding a mold colony. But today's breakthroughs often go unnoticed because they are buried in uninterpretable spreadsheets, inaccessible data, or excessive experimental noise. Riffyn’s mission is to unlock the full potential of today’s science by delivering clean, connected, meaningful data the moment it is collected.

The Role

Riffyn is looking for a mid-level back-end engineer to turn our one-of-a-kind product into something that can amaze our users for years to come. As more and more customers sign on and expand its use, Riffyn is shifting emphasis from new feature development to building a seamless and intuitive user experience on a rock-solid platform.

As part of that, we are breaking our app into services and microservices that can be developed, scaled, and tested independently, in order to deliver better experiences to our users more quickly and at scale.

This role offers interesting data problems (scientists measure a lot), room to experiment and find the best solution, the opportunity to influence Riffyn's best engineering practices, and genuinely nice people to work with on a day-to-day basis

Responsibilities

  • Researching, designing, implementing and maintaining server application code and services.
  • Writing clean, modular, reliable, testable and efficient code.
  • Working with data structures and schemas, algorithms, data processing, distributed systems and services.
  • Working well together. Be a positive influence on your peers by modeling good work practices, sharing knowledge, and identifying problems early.
  • Keep evolving. Our code base has gotten us to where we are; we have learned a lot on the way, and we're refactoring and rewriting to do it again better.

Requirements

  • Know how to break a complex problem into simpler parts and be able to explain how you do it. If your prior experience doing this is not in software, so much the better!
  • Know or want to learn about how science actually happens. If you want to know how the software is actually used, our scientific consultants will be able to answer.
  • Have experience working in a small, independent team to design, de-risk, and implement new features and refactor existing ones.
  • Possess in-depth knowledge of at least one server-side programming language. We use JavaScript (Meteor + Node.js) for our web application and have services written in Python, Java, and Go. Some experience with JavaScript is required. Experience with Go (professionally or on your own) is a plus.
  • Have some experience working with NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Elasticsearch. We also use Redis and Postgres and we're happy to teach you those.
  • 5+ Years of Experience as a Backend Developer
