Company: Guild Education
Location: Denver
Posted on: February 22, 2021

Job Description:

Guild is looking for Senior Backend Engineers to build features, design and implement APIs, and improve the reliability of our systems as we scale our product. We build our systems using tools such as Node, Postgres, GraphQL, and AWS. Experience with those is a huge plus but familiarity with other languages, API protocols, and databases work for us! We look for engineers that build with simplicity, reliability, and scalability in mind. As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will:

  • Design and build new services and infrastructure.
  • Create code that is understandable and testable.
  • Share knowledge and feedback with others inside the team.
  • Suggest improvements within your team.
  • Deliver on time and be accountable to your team and stakeholders. Our team emphasizes Guild company values in the following ways:--
    • Be an Owner - Our work is tied to outcomes for our stakeholders. We set clear expectations for delivery.
    • Scale for Students; Students for Scale - We build consistently, test everything, keep an eye on it, and handle failure with grace.
    • Have a Learner's Mindset - Always be learning and share what you've learned. With our team, other teams, the business, and the developer community.
    • Be Teammates - Respect underlies all relationships between teammates. Respecting each others' time, respecting expertise, and elevating our teammates. Better outcomes follow from leveraging the collective over the individual. In addition to working on the engineering team, you will collaborate with engineers, PMs, and leaders including Kate , Brittany , Erik , and Johnny. You are a strong fit for this role if you have:
      • Experience building services and APIs--data modeling, unit and integration testing, and continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD).
      • Experience with cloud platform services (AWS, GCP, Azure, DigitalOcean), database technologies (PostgreSQL, NoSQL), and modern source control (Git / Github).
      • Demonstrated curiosity and interest in keeping up and experimenting with new technologies.
      • Willingness to embrace change and work within a fast-paced environment.
      • Passion for higher education and our mission. About Guild: Guild is increasing economic mobility for working adults by partnering with the largest employers in the country to offer education as a benefit to their employees via our marketplace of nonprofit universities and education institutions. Guild's proprietary technology platform facilitates the administration of this innovative benefit and our team of coaches helps each employee navigate the path back to school, providing individualized support from day one through program completion.-- We also just became the latest female-led company to hit a $1billion valuation and the only B-corp with those qualifications. Our Series D round was led by Ken Chenault , General Catalyst Partners chairman and former CEO of AMEX, and joined by Emerson Collective, LeadEdge Capital, and Iconiq.-- Guild Education is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. I would like to be kept up to date about news and upcoming roles at Guild Education.
