Hi, I'm Jorge, Engineering Manager at Customer.io. I'm seeking a Senior Backend Engineer to join our growing Engineering team.

Customer.io is looking for collaborative senior scaling developers who love solving interesting puzzles and are excited to help us build a scalable platform that our customers love. Our small, remote-first team is fun-loving, passionate, and highly effective. We offer many opportunities to grow and refine your skills while having a significant impact. Our team members have backgrounds in various industries, from AdTech to Gaming. We believe embracing our unique perspectives and expertise is the key to our success as a collaborative team.

As a distributed company, we value diversity and are committed to giving you the flexibility and freedom to work from anywhere in the world on a schedule that fits your family and your life.

  • Be a model and mentor for writing well-architected, well-tested, and easy-to-understand services in Go that help our customers easily send timely & relevant messages at scale.
  • Apply your unique perspective to help us define and build the next generation of features and infrastructure needed to help our customers and company flourish.
  • Work with our tech support teams to diagnose operational issues and help our customers achieve their goals with our product.
  • Take an active role in a friendly, supportive team that encourages you and the company to grow as individuals, professionals, and teams.
  • Mentor your coworkers through code review, pair programming, team collaboration, and training to help improve our collective knowledge and best practices.

About you
