Headquarters: Bay Area, CA

Quartzy is on a quest for an extraordinary software engineer who will join us to build and maintain clean, modern applications.
You are a self-starter with a bias for action, and you can take projects from start to finish. You want to work as part of a small, tightly-knit team that moves quickly and pushes changes to production many times a day. You always admired your friends in science, but your knack for computers led you to programming.
Why Quartzy

  • Measure and improve site performance and scalability

  • Write well-tested code that is resilient to heavy iteration

What we're looking for

  • Experience with other parts of our technology stack: MySQL, Elasticsearch, Redis, Beanstalkd, RabbitMQ, nginx, Git

  • Ability and desire to own projects that directly impact Quartzy's bottom line

  • An entrepreneurial attitude that gets high-quality projects done quickly

What we'd love

  • A background working with mission-critical financial systems

  • Experience fine tuning Elasticsearch indexes to get your searches just right

  • Familiarity with asynchronous worker queues

  • Experience working in a dynamic startup environment
