Engineering at Crunchbase
We’re working to build an unparalleled innovative company data graph, and are continually improving that scalable, flexible platform and rich client application to connect the world's companies and entrepreneurs. Our mission is to turn data into knowledge and make it accessible for everyone to explore and search.
Platform Engineering at Crunchbase
The APIs and Distributed Systems built by our engineers ensure we have a scalable, real-time platform capable of serving Crunchbase data to our users, products, customers, and partners. Our brand is our dataset, but building out a solid and rich user experience and ergonomic mechanisms for accessing that data requires building many pieces of associated tooling, documentation, and libraries.
What You'll Do
Architect systems capable of serving as the brains of complex distributed products
Make important engineering decisions that balance numerous non-engineering factors with technical considerations
Think in microservices and APIs - develop and expand our ecosystem of composable, reusable, isolated, single-purpose services
Create highly testable and rock-solid service implementations
Continuously measure and optimize the performance, effectiveness, and uptime of backend services -- participate in a data-driven culture
Thrive in a constantly evolving environment, continuously working to adapt our process to new circumstances driving our culture of mentorship
What We're Looking For
2+ years of experience with strongly-typed, object-oriented languages, such as Scala, Java, C#, or Kotlin
Substantial history of leading complex projects with open-ended problems
Exhibits exceptional technical judgment while building applications with functional architectures, mentoring and guiding engineers along the way
Practical understanding of computer science and software engineering fundamentals
Motivation to participate in ongoing learning and growth through pair programming, code reviews, application of new technologies, and best practices
Excellent verbal and written communication skills
Familiarity with our tools (Scala, Postgres, Kafka, Docker, Kubernetes) is a plus, but not required -- if you know something better, we may use that instead!
