Sr Backend Engineer

Tailorie is currently seeking a talented and experienced Sr Backend Engineer to join our seed-funded rapidly growing early stage startup. This person will jump in and take the lead on all things technical.

The future of e-commerce needs not only to be social but also authentic. Discovering new products and brands digitally needs to be as human as genuine word-of-mouth recommendations. At Tailorie we are building a solution that accomplishes just that — we are focused on connecting rather than selling – tailored introductions rather than targeted ads. We empower consumers to add their human voice to big data while providing brands the tools to truly understand them. Our innovative solution levels the playing field in digital advertising and data analytics for emerging businesses and guides consumers to discover brands and products that are uniquely relevant to what and who is important to them…according to them.

Who you are:

You have a creative, resourceful, and solution-driven mindset – which drives your ability to proactively anticipate and identify issues, establish a plan to solve, and rapidly implement the solution.

You are a strong communicator and can express ideas clearly to technical and non-technical audiences.

You work well in a team environment, are comfortable coordinating engineers and collaborating with other development roles; e.g. front-end and native app developers.

You have experience rapidly scaling a product through iterative development. 

You are a self-starter with a strong sense of personal responsibility and a willingness to do what needs to be done for the success of the team.

You’ll help set objectives and goals for you and the team, do occasional code reviews and ensure the team moves quickly and builds consistent, scalable, and cost-effective solutions leading by example.
