We're looking for someone to be a Senior Back-end Engineer at Kiln. Our tech stack looks like: 

Mostly in Golang with a bit of Javascript and Typescript
Communication between services is done using HTTP Rest and most of our databases are backed by PostgreSQL
Everything runs in EKS (Elastic Kubernetes Service) on AWS



Strong judgment with the ability to ship opinionated architectural choices and code, and to share software best practices
Strong communication skills both in French & English to facilitate design scalable architectures with SREs
Strong technical skills with Golang (over 2 years of experience)
Over 5 years of experience designing, building, and deploying user-facing, infrastructure related, and/or API-based products
Experience coding in Javascript and Typescript is a plus
Experience working with container technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, and with Continuous Integration is a plus
Familiarity with Hashicorp Vault is a plus

Soft skills
Curiosity and ability to dig into a topic and follow through
Team spirit: discuss, do not try to impose
Be pragmatic to not over-engineer unnecessarily: startups need to quickly adapt
Own what is coded and shipped to production
Trust & clear communication
Real interest about the blockchain and cryptocurrency space


1) Building the product: You'll be working closely with the Product and Infrastructure teams to plan, architect, and implement our core product. You'll take part in the construction of the roadmap, with the rest of the team. In this role, it includes:

Development of data aggregators for blockchains
Development of new Golang micro-services within the Kiln stack
Taking part to automation & deployment processes
Framework development
2) Owning what you build: As you architect, test, and refine the Kiln platform, you will ensure that our services communicate with each other seamlessly, have minimal downtime, and recover quickly (daytime, no on-calls)

3) Helping grow the Team: Everyone on the early team plays an important role in attracting, closing, and growing other talented team members. You can also mentor or brainstorm with other backend developers.
