Job Description:

We're hiring a Senior Backend Engineer to work alongside our talented development team in NYC. You will work with this NYC team, as well as our tight-knit engineering team in Berlin, on our collection of APIs and microservices, written in PHP, Golang, and Python.

Our teams are cross-functional, so you'll be rubbing shoulders with frontend, product, UX, mobile, and QA, and as a senior member of the team you'll be taking responsibility for our entire platform, its architecture, and our suite of microservices. As we evolve our backend systems towards Microservices and Event-sourced paradigms, our engineers have been increasingly using Go for its speed, concurrency, and low learning curve

  • Prior experience with distributed systems and microservices a big plus (protobuf / gRPC, opentracing)

  • DevOps expertise highly desirable (Docker and Kubernetes a huge plus!)

For too long, women's healthcare has been designed and carried out with little say from women themselves. We're here to end that and to shape a better system of care, directly informed by and tied to women's unique needs. Starting now. Ready to join us? You would join a tightly-knit group that values user-centered design and is building a product that is the result of the cooperation between our product, design, and development teams.

Requirements: * 4+ years experience building software or web applications * Familiarity with Linux, SQL, shell scripting, REST APIs * Experience with data encryption and consumer privacy. Protecting Maven's patient data is the most important thing to our company, and you should think about the privacy and security implications of every line of code you write! * A deep belief in automation and doing things the right way the first time * An opinion about what code to test and how to test it Benefits: Maven employees are united in their quest to improve the health and well-being of women and their families in our community. We seek to empower all of our team members to fulfill that mission and reach their full potential regardless of function, geography or experience level.

To that end, we offer: * Choice of great medical insurance plan options, including a plan for which the premium for employees is 100% covered by Maven * Dental and Vision insurance plans * 401(k) plan * Access to the Maven platform service and free Maven appointments for employees, family & friends * Free One Medical membership * Citi Bike and ClassPass discounts * Pre-tax commuter benefits * Paid vacation time off * Parental and other leave * Sponsored learning & development programs * Annual personal hobby stipend * Weekly team lunches and bagel breakfasts * Bottomless office snacks and regular happy hours * Annual company offsite * Newly designed NYC office in the heart of Tribeca * Ongoing special days, such as designated 'bring your child' and 'bring your canine' to work days!
