Senior Backend Engineer

Nylas

Job Title
Senior Backend Engineer
Job Description

Our engineers end-to-end own and ship new features, like offering Contact sync, while providing mentorship through pairing. They share our webhook systems, then re-architect in SQS as we scale. They solve tricky customer issues, debug slow MySQL queries, and sometimes get into the depths of MIME and other email protocols.

You should have a growth mindset, enough engineering experience to architect complex systems, a track record of managing your own projects, and a strong sense of practical shippability over-engineering purity. You should also tend toward humbleness in your abilities and have an innate desire to pass knowledge onto others.
