Posted on Friday, January 5, 2024
Our success is reliant on building teams that include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can elevate assumptions and ideas with fresh perspectives. We're dedicated to hiring the whole human, not just a resume. To that end, we look for a diverse pool of applicants-including those from historically marginalized groups. We would like to invite you to apply even if you don't think you meet all of the requirements listed below. We don't want a few lines in a job description to get between us and the opportunity to meet you.
About the Team
The mission of the Email + Calendar Services team is to deliver the microservice constellation to support Outreach's email and calendar experience all the way through. From the compose to smart scheduling, send, telemetry and sync back to platform. Our team is processing literally millions of emails every day.
The team focuses on building reliable and performant services that connect Outreach to Customers’ email providers to send, sync and analyze email and calendar communication. This enables our customers to communicate and turns the millions of emails sent into valuable insights to help progress deals forward efficiently and effectively.
The team also supports the Email and Calendar Experiences team to provide ways to create, manage and organize content used in communications.
The Role
We are looking for an additional experienced, seasoned (senior level) back-end software engineer to join us; you would deep-dive on challenging technical problems, build scalable solutions and identify performance bottlenecks, iterate quickly and deliver incremental value and thrive in a collaborative team environment.
Your engagement would usually start with requirements clarification with the product manager or our partners. You will have the opportunity to put the best of your ideas to the design and prove your coding skills in actual implementation. We primarily use micro-services written in GO on the back-end. However, we have legacy code in Ruby on Rails and you might encounter TypeScript too. We have data stores built on MySQL, PostgreSQL and various NoSQL databases like AWS DynamoDB. We are transitioning our data loading layer to use GraphQL.
While we are remote-friendly, we remain an "office-centric" company.
