About the position & Responsibilities
They’re currently an engineering team of 8. They work up and down the stack, and outside it when necessary (across hiring, product, you name it). They’re looking for not only engineers, but owners that will drive the company for years to come.
You might be a great fit if you are:
- Adaptable—an avid hat collector.
- Prone to focus on simplicity over completeness. They pride themselves on being to-the-point in our product development. If it doesn’t solve the problem, it’s not worth their time.
- People-focused. Take the time to get to know their customers, and step in their shoes when building. In-person meetings and on-sites are encouraged.
- A leader, mentor, and influencer. As one of the first engineers at the company, you get a chance to impact the company in fundamental ways, in and out of ‘the stack’.
They choose technology to find the right balance of productivity, robustness, performance, and elegance. They like to move fast, and be proud of their work at the same time. Their stack is:
- React Native and ReactJS for both native and web front-ends. (Typescript)
- GraphQL as our API language
- Ruby/Sorbet+Sidekiq+ActiveRecord for backend business logic
- PostgreSQL for backend data persistence
- Realm as our mobile DB
Their development process is simple: they identify an opportunity to help our customers save time and lead a more fulfilling work-life (be it a product, infrastructure improvement, or development tool), run it by the team, and build it.
They use daily check-ins to hold each other accountable, weekly meetings to plan the next cycle of work, and 3-month check-ins to talk about the company’s priorities and goals as a whole. Everything else is up to you.
Our technical challenges (and accomplishments) include:
- Integrating with hardware (e.g. wireless scale integrations for weighing product during and after harvest/processing or RFID scanners for plant tracking).
- Processing millions of data points and offering actionable insights and forecasts to our customers.
- Working with gnarly 3rd-party APIs to push/pull data to/from our backend with a high degree of accuracy and timeliness.
- Delivering beautiful and effective UIs to help their customers accomplish their work as effectively as possible.
- Writing efficient mobile applications that can work both online and offline to process hundreds of thousands of changes in sporadic network conditions.
- Managing payments for an often overlooked population of underbanked customers: the entire cannabis supply chain.
