The backend team is responsible for the REST APIs, data processing services and managing our underlying production infrastructure. They will work closely with our mobile and web teams on project requirements and with the CTO and VP Engineering on systems design and implementation.

We expect the role to grow or adapt along with the needs of the company and towards your interests and strengths.
