About us:

Rye is a set of commerce APIs that enables developers to profit from selling any product, without the complexities of inventory ownership, order fulfillment, or any other logistics. We want to transform online commerce to allow purchases to be made directly inside of any app - without any redirects.

About the role:

Our systems are built around eCommerce, tracking orders, order placement, returns, and inventory and search. We're proud of our best-in-class tooling that includes a GraphQL API, a gRPC backend system, and Node.js services.

We’re looking for a Senior / Staff Backend Engineer to join our fully remote team.

What you'll do:

  • Develop features and build infrastructure to integrate with external platforms like Shopify, WooCommerce, and BigCommerce
  • Build and maintain high-quality APIs for eCommerce, focusing on tracking orders, order placement, returns, and search engines
  • Stand up new infrastructure on GCP
  • Write high-quality documentation for developers
  • Deliver large projects end to end, coordinating features across team members and systems
  • Communicate updates proactively
  • Work independently and with a remote-first team

What we're looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience in backend engineering
  • Proficiency in Typescript and Node.js
  • Experience building systems with a GraphQL API and a gRPC backend system
  • Strong understanding of best practices in software development and engineering
  • Experience working with external platforms like Shopify, WooCommerce, and BigCommerce
