Senior Software Engineer, Node.js
The LeagueSan Francisco, CAa year ago
The League is a mobile social dating app startup backed by Ridge Ventures, xSeed Capital, Cowboy Ventures, Structure Capital, Sherpa Ventures, and many notable angels. The Founder, Amanda Bradford, is a Stanford MBA (ex-Google, ex-Salesforce) with a strong product sense (engineering degree from Carnegie Mellon) and a fierce determination to change the dating space for the better. The League is live in 55 US and 5 international cities, brings in healthy, growing revenue each month, and has a growing waitlist in large international metros waiting for their city launch!

Let's see if this is a "Home run!"

The League has found product market fit, a successful business model, and is actively building out a strong Engineering team. We’re looking for hungry, smart individuals to take on huge areas of responsibility as we build for the future!

This team focuses on providing a high-performance, secure and reliable experience for all of our users.

You will be in charge of designing your own services while maintaining an holistic view of the system. It will be your responsibility to maintain, measure, and profile production code.

We're fun to work with, bring your best jokes to work (dad jokes welcome) and put a smile on everyone's face! We might be talking about circuit breaking or making fun of the name "serverless" over coffee, there might even be a UDP joke that you don't get. We will probably come up with our best design yet while having lunch at our roof-deck across the street.

If you are passionate about the future and you're looking for a chance to prove yourself, it's a match!
