The Backend engineer a developer that touches the code that powers the backend services, scaling and data flow of the FindMine application. We’re in the onset of a transition from a Monolith, aioHTTP async Python with MySQL platform to a service-based, Flask powered and MongoDB backed platform to be built in Q2 and Q3.
We need an individual who has been part of the design of services oriented platform and has been part of discussions on how to best build them, but also is not scared to learning how an existing multi-thousand line codebase works and figure out a migration plan.
Also a key component is assisting with documenting not only the codebase, but the processes and the architectural decisions. We use Notion as our knowledge base.
The candidate also has been exposed to caching multi-thousand requests per minute, and how to shave off milliseconds from a request-response cycle using in-memory databases and/or with NoSQL databases like MongoDB.
Finally the candidate knows how to design data flow architectures using tools like ElasticSearch, DataDog and Sentry.
