Platform Development Engineer

Location: Seattle, WA

Department: Engineering

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

About You

You live for building platforms and networked services that will host the next generation of client applications. Your understanding of end-to-end networked systems allows you to build a platform that scales. You design platform services that interact with cloud services in secure and performant ways.  You know how to develop asynchronous services, data serialization protocols and multi-language platform APIs and SDKs.  Without an extensible platform architecture you understand that the adoption of your platform will be limited. You have experience in making peer-to-peer mesh-networks work together. You excel when working in small, dynamic, and fast-paced teams. Your self-driven attitude helps you thrive in unstructured environments. You are accomplished at what you do, and long for the chance to work on a mix of bold innovations that will push boundaries and change the way millions of people interact with technology. You are one of us.
