The role: We are currently seeking a Backend Application developer with 3 - 5 years of experience working on scalable server architecture. 

  • Signeasy’s backend API which powers all of its user-facing products - both mobile and web, is a microservices-based application with Golang and the Gin Web Framework being the main stack. We also use Python + Flask/Django, Node.js, and Java for some microservices. We are not biased about our own decisions and are open to considering other frameworks/technology stack as needed.

  • We use AWS extensively to host our infrastructure including EC2, ELB, Elasticache, S3, RDS, Lambda and ApiGateway. We use Nginx and Apache as our web servers and MySQL/MongoDB/ElasticSearch/Redis for our data stores. We use Ubuntu/Linux and Windows servers - we have a legitimate reason to use Windows. ;)

  • We use Docker and Kubernetes for our development environment.

  • Our stack is very stable and has served us well, but there is always room for improvement and refining.

  • Write unit and integration tests which will pave way for continuous deployment and aim for zero bugs

  • Monitor API logs daily and reports to the corresponding stakeholders. Be vocal in suggesting features based on this data

  • Hustle and get the app developers to use your APIs right


  • Has 3 - 5 years of experience with Golang and exposure to scalable server architecture.

  • Experience in at least one other language/stack (Python, Java, Node.js, etc.) a huge plus

  • Has built RESTful APIs for mobile and web clients and at scale at least similar or larger than ours

  • Has fair understanding of front-end technologies (Javascript, React) and how they interact with the backend

  • Has experience with AWS, Serverless services and monitoring systems is definitely a big plus

  • Communicates ideas and gathers requirements effectively.

  • Has written unit-testable software code and unit tests. Inclination towards TDD

  • Is comfortable to handle migration and revamp of data storages and computing infrastructure

  • Has experience with SQL query optimization and performance tuning

  • Has experience with CI tools to handle automated deployments
