Back-end Node.js Developer

As we look to expand our team, we need a software developer that can contribute significantly to our Node.js REST API and related libraries. All the data that powers our software solution comes from our JSON-based REST API, and it contains the bulk of our business logic. For this role, we need someone who is comfortable designing, building, and testing RESTful HTTP API endpoints, written in JavaScript.

We are not necessarily looking for senior developers with years of experience - we just need people who are smart, can get things done, and are easy to work with. Some amount of learning on the job is inevitable, and no one knows everything, so the ability to quickly learn and apply knowledge is more important to us than specific education or experience. That said, the more familiar you are with Node.js development, the more quickly you will be able to hit the ground running.

As an early member of our development team, you will get to participate in and contribute to the exciting growth of this company. We value individuals who are passionate and ambitious, yet humble and attentive. You will get to work alongside one or more senior members of our co-founder team.

We work out of an office in Chamblee, GA, which is walkable from the Chamblee MARTA station. Pre-COVID, we worked from home once or twice a week.  Until COVID settles down, coming into the office is not required. We use standard collaboration tools like Slack and Microsoft Teams to communicate & collaborate daily.

Duties and Responsibilities:
  • Design & propose JSON object structures for API request/response bodies
  • Write business logic in JavaScript that conforms to StandardJS code style
  • Create or update RESTful HTTP API endpoints
  • Write dynamic SQL queries via Objection.js and Knex
  • Create SQL database migrations compatible with Flyway, when necessary
  • Use existing patterns, when applicable
  • Participate in design and requirements-gathering discussions
  • Test your code before shipping it
  • Write BDD-style integration tests for your code
  • Participate in Pull Requests and code reviews
  • Communicate effectively and be a team player and pay attention to details
  • Familiarity with Node.js as an API and runtime
  • Basic understanding of relational data models and SQL
  • Basic understanding of HTTP and REST
  • Basic understanding of npm and the package ecosystem
  • Know how to use git and GitHub
Bonus Requirements:
  • Familiarity with Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Basic understanding of Docker and containers
  • Familiarity with CockroachDB and/or Redis
  • Any experience working on an open source project
  • Know some of the gotchas of working w/ numbers in JavaScript
