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 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 product with strong network effects that’s helping the travel industry work together across multiple cities and countries to plan and execute a strategy for a multi staged recovery as people eventually get ready to travel again. You will work, learn, and develop with a very agile team which includes product managers, designers and developers who are all invested in your success.

  • Help mentor junior developers and grow their skillset across the entire stack
  • Collaborate with the Product Manager and Support Team to help resolve production issues

Ideally, you'll have:

  • TypeScript or JavaScript (ES6 and above)
  • Building relational data models across multiple domains
  • REST APIs to interact with data storage systems
  • Deployed and maintained production systems that are in use by B2B customers
  • Nice to haves..
