our product teams are focused on creating fantastic user experiences. We’re looking for talented and like-minded engineers that are passionate about building world-class experiences that delight our customers.

 

What We Do:

 

  • We enjoy building UIs in Ember.js so much that we created our own internal styleguide and component library.
  • We believe in using the best tools for the job. We write customer-facing features using Ember.js frontend and Ruby backend. Our write-heavy traffic services are written with Go and leverage multiple data storage solutions. https://stackshare.io/upfluence/upfluence
  • We deploy our code multiple times per day using docker, etcd and Container Linux.
  • We love open source, we try to contribute to other projects or open  source our own to share with the rest of the community.
  • We’re proud of the code we write, but we’re not dogmatic about methodologies or techniques. We believe building the “right thing” is more important than building things “right”. However, we take our customers’ dependence on our systems very seriously and strive to build highly performant and reliable software that are parts of our customers’ core infrastructure.
