BRINGING GREAT VISUALS TO LIFE.


What’s CrowdRiff?

Great visuals tell stories that touch hearts, open minds, and even influence what we buy, eat, and do. That’s why CrowdRiff exists: to connect brands and consumers alike with the captivating imagery that makes a real impact. As a market leader in travel and tourism technology, we help get people excited to scuba dive in Tahiti, explore Napa’s wine country, and bungee jump in Queenstown. CrowdRiff’s visual marketing platform helps marketers source, organize and publish visuals at scale.

Our team is a quirky and diverse crew that has one thing in common: our love for great visuals. Every day, we work across desks, departments and even oceans to reach our goals, and delight our customers. If you’re passionate about helping everyone see what matters, you’re just our type.

Your Role: Senior Back-End Developer

We’re looking for back end developers enthusiastic about creating resilient and responsive services with easy to use APIs. In this role you will have an opportunity to work on a visual marketing platform that’s transforming the travel industry. You will work, learn, and develop with an awesome and very agile team which includes a scrum master, designers and developers who are all invested in your success. You’ll primarily work with Go (experience with Go not specifically required- we can help you learn that) and Postgres.


The Tech

We develop medium sized domain specific RESTful services in Go that use Postgres and Elasticsearch for storage and Redis as the cache layer. Our image processing pipeline uses AWS Kinesis as an event bus, AWS SQS as a managed queue as well as Google's Vision APIs as well as our own internal ML models to perform label detection and spam filtering on all photos and videos we ingest.

Projects can be built & tested with a single command. Continuous Integration is done using TravisCI and once all tests pass, projects are auto-deployed to our Staging and Prod Kubernetes clusters and autoscale based on utilization.
