CircleCI is looking for an experienced backend engineer to join a team tasked with building tools for administering our platform - improving efficiency across multiple departments, and our customers managing large installations of CircleCI. We build tools that are intuitive and a pleasure to use, but also secure and aligned with regulations our customers care about. This is a great opportunity to make a big impact.

In this role, you’ll be a part of a full-stack team of engineers working remotely from the APAC region. It’s a new team, and we’re looking forward to our journey through all the usual stages of team development - and sharing it with you.

For this role, we are looking for engineers located in Japan.

What you’ll do:
  • Build backend APIs and services to power browser-based administrative tools, working with codebases that are predominantly Clojure-based.
  • Reconcile user requirements (internal and external) with policies and legal regulations.
  • Collaborate with other engineering teams when interacting with services they own.
  • Work with our Security team to keep our tools safe and auditable.
  • Share rotating on-call duties for our tools.
  • Help build the culture and practices of a new team.

You’ll do the above in a fully remote team of folks who care about you as a person and respect your life outside of work.

Who we’re looking for:

We’re seeking someone who thrives in a collaborative environment, is curious and interested in learning, brings strong communication and teamwork skills, and helps others grow by sharing their expertise and encouragement.

Below you can find a list of skills and practices we value in candidates - you don’t need to be experienced in all of them to apply!

  • 5+ years of backend development experience with micro-services and distributed systems.
  • Pair programming, both synchronous and asynchronous.
  • Writing functional code that’s easily readable, testable, and maintainable.
  • Interest in learning new languages and technologies. We use Clojure and Go, JavaScript/React, Kubernetes/Helm, MongoDB and PostgreSQL, and RabbitMQ, but it’s okay if you haven’t yet! More details on our tech stack can be found here.
  • Experience with agile software development practices, focusing on incremental delivery of value.
  • Ability to manage the ambiguity of a rapidly-growing company: adjusting to changing priorities, making conscious tradeoffs when guidance is limited and information is incomplete, and instituting best practices from scratch when needed.
  • Strong English communication skills, both written and spoken.

This role will be for level E4 on our Engineering Competency Matrix, our internal career growth system for engineers. These are the minimum expectations for this position, but we are always willing to discuss bringing people on at more senior positions when appropriate.

The Denver office is collaborative, ambitious and exciting. We are located downtown near a bunch of fun bars and restaurants. Everyone comes into the office everyday looking forward to the challenge at hand, which is refreshing to start your day with!

Nick

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Building a business in which collaboration is a cultural norm is a team sport! Slack and video chats with team leaders and team members alike, I find the frequent sharing of our best ideas and insights really encourages team players, gains support for critical initiatives, and provides a level of trust to converse openly about difficult issues.

Jessica

Senior Manager of Account Based Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team and office culture is so engaging. It’s awesome to be in a place where we’re actively curious about what other roles in the company do and what their challenges are. That reinforces two core attributes of successful sales executives that are curiosity and passion for both our customers and our peers.

Brandon

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Through cultivating open and honest communication. I encourage my team to voice their ideas, think outside of the box, and to take ownership to find creative solutions to resolve customer issues.

Becky

Senior Manager, Customer Success

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Everyone on the team and the company can and will reach out to me. I also attend weekly stand-ups in our Denver office, regularly ask for feedback in our team slack channels, and stay in touch with managers and ICs when it comes to deals, problems, etc.
