As a Backend Engineer, you’ll spend the majority of your time improving Robin’s API and web services. When you build software that bridges physical and digital, it needs a platform able to keep up with enormous amounts of realtime data. We work on the cutting edge of what today’s hardware can do, which means we’re often the first to tackle a problem.
We need your help to do it.
Our engineering team isn't married to specific technologies or languages. Choosing the right tool for the job (even if we have to learn it first) is a strong part of our builder culture. A great candidate will have knowledge of PHP, Go, Node, or other common server-side languages. Knowledge of dev ops, service-oriented architecture, queues (e.g. RabbitMQ) and databases are also a great foundation.
We regularly contribute to open source, and encourage everyone on our team to do the same.
Bullet point lists are great. These are some traits that make it easy to succeed here:
* Organized and on top of your day-to-day tasks.
* People have to enjoy talking to you. And you have to enjoy talking with them.
* Hungry to learn and teach. We invest heavily in making each other better.
* Patience and empathy. Customers (and humans in general) like this.
* Absolutely self-driven. You’ve got to love measuring your own progress.
Robin is a better way to manage meeting rooms, used by companies like Netflix, Kayak, and Sonos to wrangle their workplaces.
It's a search engine for your office -- find and book rooms based on the stuff you need, remove no-show meetings automatically, and get reports on how the office is actually being used.
