Job Description

At GOAT Group, the Engineering team is an integral part of our dynamic company. By joining the team, your skills will be front and center, working alongside other passionate individuals to solve problems and build software. From launching compelling new consumer experiences, tackling global logistics challenges to scaling infrastructure to facilitate our rapid growth – technology is essential to driving our vision forward. The work you do will change the way the world shops, while also empowering entrepreneurs, including individual sellers, brands and boutiques.

In this role you will:

    • Design core infrastructure and platform components for a fast-growing start-up
    • Scale for capacity and traffic spikes of 10x normal load during high-volume events
    • Implement defenses against security threats, bots, and malicious actors
    • Enhance our chat-based deployment, build, and orchestration systems
    • Be on call for the rare infrastructure-level issues that haven’t already been automated
    • Automate infrastructure so that pager escalations continue to be rare

We are looking for:

    • 2+ years of Software Engineering experience
    • Exceptional programming skills, i.e. Go, Python, Ruby
    • Professional experience with AWS (Cloudformation is a plus)
    • Experience running Docker in production
    • Experience reading shell and deciphering build scripts
    • Experience evaluating and using open source solutions that fit business needs
