We are looking for a full time, onsite Backend Software Engineer to join our development team. Job duties will include working on Stream's core API technology as well as designing and building high-performance software.

What you will be doing

Most of your day will be dedicated to software design, research, and coding. On typical projects, you will have a lot of freedom and you will be paired with another team member. Our team is made up of very experienced engineers, some with more than 10 years of experience. By working together you will learn from each other along the way. You will have an enormous impact on making our API service faster, more scalable and more flexible.

You will add new features to the service and find ways to make the existing ones perform orders of magnitude faster. Our customers have millions of users; they use Stream for mission critical features such as showing content and exposing core functionality of their application. Building stable and reliable software is not just an option: as a member of the development team, you will design and write state-of-the-art software, follow best practices, measure everything and be responsible for deployment to production. You will also spend part of your time talking to our customers and help them to use Stream in their app.

The challenges

  • Distributed databases: we built our own data store for feeds and for chat
  • Real-time messaging
  • High performance: our API responses are in the 10ms range
  • High scalability: we use sharding, master-master, and master-slave to ensure scalability
  • High availability: our entire infrastructure is designed and operated to survive entire datacenter crashes
  • Multi-region: we deploy our service on 4 different continents

You have

  • Proficiency in Go or you are a Senior backend developer willing and able to learn quickly

  • 5+ years as a backend developer
  • Experience with high traffic and high performance applications
  • Good knowledge of relational databases
  • Experience with building HTTP APIs
  • Experience managing your own projects and work in a team

Our tech stack

At Stream we use a wide collection of technologies to offer highly optimized and available features to our customers. Over the years we have experimented with different programming languages, frameworks, databases, and libraries. Here is a short list of the technology that we currently use. Do not worry if you do not master them all or if you do not see your favorite tool or language, you will have the chance to be exposed to most and to convince us to expand the list:

  • Go, gRPC, RocksDB, Python
  • Postgresql, RabbitMQ
  • AWS, Puppet, CloudFormation
  • Grafana, Graphite, ELK, Jaeger
  • Redis, Memcached

What we have to offer you

Stream employees enjoy some of the best benefits in the industry:

  • A competitive salary
  • Company equity
  • A team of exceptional engineers
  • The chance to work on OSS projects
  • MacBook Pro or other development setup
  • Healthy team lunches and plenty of snacks
  • A generous relocation package
  • An office in the heart of Amsterdam
  • The opportunity to attend or present to global conferences and meetups
  • The possibility to visit our office in Boulder, CO

An Insider's view of Stream

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Casual, friendly and helpful. We do a lot together: lunches, fitness classes, happy hours and of course celebrating successes.

Scott Lasica

CSO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I start off every project with the sales team to make sure the handoff for a new personalization client goes smoothly and expectations are clear. Then, I work with customer success to make sure that communication is solid. During this whole process, I often reach out to devs. It's super easy to directly communicate with with anyone at Stream!

Neha

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Stream as 1 of 2 BDRs (business development reps). Over the course of the past 2.5 years my position has evolved a few times. I initially moved into the role of BDR Manager, then into an inside sales role and finally become an Account Executive, which is the position I I hold today. I am really excited about the future of Stream.

Dani

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Stream emphasizes mutual trust and respect. Employees are provided autonomy and encouraged to speak up with their ideas. At Stream, we believe that it is vital to genuinely listen to and consider every employee's idea to push the company forward – all thoughts are well heard and, more often than not, put into play.

Nick

Director of Marketing

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m most excited about our new mobile chat SDKs. They release the full power of stream chat in a ready-to-use library!
