Backend Engineer

Full Time I Remote

Toucan is a post-COVID virtual gatherings platform that makes mingling at an online happy hour as easy as circulating around a physical room or just standing around with a drink and waiting for folks to come to you.

The role

First backend engineer with expertise in Node.js, real-time servers, REST APIs, websockets, No/SQL, audio/video streaming, and the AWS platform. Self-starter who enjoys working in a small team, can design and implement solutions to unusual and complex problems, as well as troubleshoot, identify, and resolve server-side issues. Experience with hapi, identity management, and message queues a big plus.

The rest of the stack is React/TypeScript, a homegrown library for rendering OO HTML5-based sprites, and Terraform for infrastructure.

We’re looking for someone willing to commit to a decent timezone overlap (~4 hr) with continental US and we’re offering a well-paced, professional work environment on top of salary, stock, and benefits.
