Engineering at Q:
We are using technology to take the headache out of office management. We are building a platform to help office managers run their offices seamlessly, to allow vendors to fulfill requests with ease, and to enable our employees to work more efficiently. We have a problem-solving culture that is based on making an impact instead of hitting arbitrary deadlines.
The Platform Team owns Q’s core domain models at the API level, manages Q’s cloud infrastructure, and pushes the wider Engineering department forward by extending our technical platform with new capabilities. We tend to work on larger projects (3-6+ months) that enable new feature work in our products, increase the technical quality of our backend systems, or help all of Engineering be more productive.
As an Engineer on the Platform team, you’ll contribute code to our core systems while also working with a team of experienced engineers to determine the future direction of our technical platform. You’ll need to be able to work by yourself and with the team to deeply understand a technical area, design the best solution for a given problem, implement it, and get your peers to adopt your solution.
You’ll work in a domain where the business problems are complex, the technical paths to solve the problems are myriad, and the urgency to grow is real. You’ll need to find a path through the ambiguity while maintaining a quality bar befitting a product where errors and lapses in data quality directly affect people’s lives.
What We Are Looking For:
- 4+ years experience building software or web applications
- Proficiency in at least one of Python, Ruby, Node.js, Go, or a JVM language
- Experience working with distributed applications and related technologies, e.g. message queues, distributed logs, high-availability data stores
- A strong understanding of consistency and availability fundamentals related to distributed systems
- Experience building and deploying significant, well-architected, maintainable, and testable applications
- A demonstrated ability to tackle large or complex technical projects
- Strong communication skills and the ability to advocate for your technical solutions to your team and the larger Engineering department
Perks & Benefits
In addition to offering world-class health benefits, 401(k) matching, parental leave, and highly competitive compensation, Managed by Q also offers a work culture of psychological safety, transparency, and continuous learning. We have an Employee Resource Group, which leads the charge on wellness and inclusion initiatives, and host an annual all-company Hack Day (not just for tech folks). Every other week, all 165 employees get together over catered lunch to build bridges between teams, and monthly, one of MbQ's people leaders hosts a workshop for managers focused on effective leadership. As the newest member of the We Company, Managed by Q looks forward to expanding our perks even further.
