Opportunity to join one of Australia's fastest growing startups and learn Golang or Node!

We are currently working with a homegrown Australian startup that just oversubscribed on their recent funding round. Based out of Sydney CBD, they are offering true startup culture with the opportunity to truly make a difference and influence the direction of the company.

As they are growing rapidly they are in need of a backend developer, with Golang being their programming language of choice. 

In this position, you will develop and maintain a set of public APIs — allowing applications to leverage our account system. You must be experienced with external-facing API development as well as with OAuth (provider, not client). If we think you’re amazing we might overlook the latter.  

In technical terms, you should be an API archmage who is keen to leverage their powers to facilitate the video-games of tomorrow.

You should also be an excellent communicator. You’ll be interacting with a range of development teams: website, game, SDK etc. And you’ll need to convey complex ideas in effective language.

If that sounds like you, we’d love to catch up. We’re doing some awesome work here and would love for you to be a part of it.
Pre-screening criteria (e.g. min requirements, code samples, tests):

  • Some experience with external-facing API development in Golang or Node JS necessary
  • Some experience with OAuth (as a provider, rather than a client) is very important but could be overlooked for a really great person
  • Code samples (more relevant to job listing the better)

Job description (day to day responsibilities):
  • Build a sustainable ecosystem for external developers to integrate with
  • Build a comprehensive set of documentation and quick start guides to onboard developers into our ecosystem
  • Work with community website developers to gather feedback and develop new features
  • Work with internal and external game development teams to determine how we can improve user experience within our own games
  • Work with teams implementing Unity, Mobile and Browser SDKs to provide endpoint guidance/usage tips
  • Use endpoint analytics to improve our API services and determine future demand
  • Work with our frontend developers to create an attractive flow for gaining credentials
  • Ensure API scales with constant uptime
  • Creating documentation and guides to onboard developers.  
  • Implementing feedback from community website developers.  
  • Strategizing ways to improve user experience.  
  • Improving API services with endpoint analytics.
