Software Engineer, Applications

Branch Metrics, Seattle

The industry leader of the most exciting space in mobile.

The Basics: 

You will work alongside a small and deeply hardworking engineering group, building out services that power mobile experiences for a majority of top companies around the world. Today, we are powering over 5 billion API transactions a day and growing rapidly. You will wear different hats along the way, traversing our stack, working across our application and data pipelines using languages like Java and frameworks like Spark, while shaping our entire system architecture. If this sounds appealing to you, you will feel right at home at Branch!

If you are passionate about building scalable software services handling tens of billions of low latency requests per day, come join us!

What You’ll Do:

  • Work on building everything from APIs to backend systems across a range of technologies to support new and improved functionality that meets product needs
  • Lead the design and implementation of complex systems end to end - be it a new service to power new functionality or data pipelines to ingest large volumes of data or implementing state of the art complex algorithms.
  • Responsible for scoping, defining and leading design and implementation across multi-functional teams. You will often take vague product requirements and be responsible for breaking them down into smaller components displaying committed prioritization and coordination
  • Work collaboratively with product managers, infrastructure, platform and data engineers to refine requirements, architect and implement complex systems
  • Debugging hard problems - that’s a given! When things break -- and they will -- you will find yourself debugging those challenging bugs and will be eager and able to fix things
  • Mentor other specialists and chip in to the team growth and development
  • Every week we find ourselves learning something new, whether it’s a new technology or a quirk of a language we otherwise didn’t know. On occasion, you may find yourself picking up a new language or working with an unfamiliar platform. If this does not intimidate you, and you're eager to dive in and get the job done you will be right at home

We’re Looking for Someone With:

  • Professional experience building backend systems and APIs for 4+ years
  • Proficient in Java and comfortable diving in to any language or technology
  • Experience with databases like Postgres, MySQL and familiarity with Redis, Kafka, Memcached, Spark
  • Experience working with modern cloud based microservice architectures
  • Experience building and debugging complex systems in a team environment
  • Displays a significant ownership of features and systems and pursues a result driven development approach consistent with pragmatism
  • Keen on leading technical multi-functional project teams
  • Passion for building and shipping phenomenal customer facing software
