  • Team/Tech leading experience
  • Knowledge of JavaScript, Angular 2+ and any other frameworks
  • Knowledge and experience with C++
  • Experience supporting a distributed production backend with high uptime metrics
  • Experience with backend systems for a real-time communication (RTC) application supporting low-latency video and audio streams
  • Experience with multi-datacenter global service distribution footprints
  • Expertise with some of the following technologies:
  • Container-based virtualization (Docker)
  • Distributed resource management, coordination, and deployment tools (Mesos, Zookeeper, CoreOS, Marathon)
  • Distributed pub/sub frameworks (Kafka), distributed high-throughput key-value storage (Redis)
  • Big data storage (Cassandra, Redshift, BigQuery) and processing (Cloud Dataflow, Spark)
  • High-concurrency relational databases (PostgreSQL)
  • Distributed log collection and analysis
  • Advanced academic training in distributed systems, security, or a related field

What will you do?

  • Own the full software development lifecycle for user-facing featuresБ.
  • Constantly pay down technical debt and improve software development processes through tool developmentБ.
  • Constantly learn the latest trends and tools applicable to Highfive’s problem, evaluating and integrating them as appropriateБ.
  • Work with management to define and refine backend service technology roadmapБ.
  • Evangelize and educate best practices for maintainable high-concurrency server code among the rest of the software organizationБ.

    Highfive is a cloud-based service supporting tens of thousands of concurrent users in a mission-critical real-time communication application. We handle thousands of concurrent audio and video streams in an environment where every millisecond of latency and every dropped packet are crucial to the end-user experience. We succeed when we mask all of the required complexity completely behind a product that is super easy to use. Software engineering, particularly the backend service, is at the core of this problem. We are looking for talented individuals to bring their ideas, motivation, and hard work to our accomplished team.

    Our backend technology stack is composed of a blend of homegrown technologies tailored to our specific requirements, alongside the best and latest commercial and open-source tools. Our only dogma is in building a delightful, dependable product for our users, and thus we use whatever tool is best for the job.
