Spocket is revolutionizing the world of eCommerce as we know it today. Because of Spocket, a mom from the United Kingdom, or a teacher from Saudi Arabia can start their own businesses with our platform.

At Spocket, we are on a mission to empower millions of online entrepreneurs. This is why we wake up every day. Today, Spocket enables over 60,000+ entrepreneurs across five continents to launch and scale their online stores.

On the outside, we’re building something life-changing for entrepreneurs. Helping them achieve their goals is why we’re all here. Changing an entire industry isn’t always a straight path forward, but it’s an experience unlike anything else.

On the inside, we are a fun and passionate group of people striving to build a world-class culture of freedom, full-ownership and responsibility.

We are looking for a Senior Backend Engineer with extensive software development experience, who has seen it all, and could help us make a move to the next level. Over the years we partnered with Shopify, Wix, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, AliExpress, Squarespace, Ecwid, Square, Paypal, Chargebee, and many more to expand and grow our business to the level we are at now. But we are still at the launch pad looking for the big leap! We have huge plans to keep expansion and build partnerships with the biggest players in the e-commerce space and we need your help to advance our team efforts!

We need your help with:
  • Design, develop, and maintain integration flows using an array of different platforms, APIs, databases, protocols and data formats
  • Collaborate and review code with other developers in engineering and sales operations to ensure each integration maintains a consistent level of technical standards as set by the team
  • Introduce new and improved technical standards for the API integrations to the team. Help our team to grow by learning from you.
  • Improve the reliability, efficiency, scalability and latency of the existing system.
  • Collaborate with product, operations, and customer support in a cross-functional team to resolve problems.

We’re excited to have you because you have these skills:
  • Backend experience with Ruby on Rails (preferred), Python, Go or Node.js.
  • Building RESTful APIs for e-commerce applications with access to millions of data points.
  • Experience with SQL databases and NoSQL data stores.
  • Experience with addressing performance issues at scale.
  • Experience with resource planning and architectural design.
  • You have implemented countless 3rd party integrations and worked on building public API yourself.
  • You have excellent communication skills to facilitate the discussion process between Spocket and our partners.
  • Able to run and debug apps E2E, with React.js being the front face of our app.

You’re excited about joining Spocket because...
  • We take care of our teammates. This is a unique opportunity to join a rapidly growing technology startup and taking care of our team on this journey is a priority.
  • We have curated a mission-driven workplace in which we believe in a positive and supportive team.
  • We offer all teammates the opportunity to provide insights on strategy and improve processes across the business.
  • You are eager to learn more about the fast-growing e-commerce industry.
  • We love hanging out. A team that has fun together, stays together!
