Bolt engineering teams are working on unique product challenges : complex algorithms for demand prediction, optimal real-time pricing, routing, fraud detection, distributed systems and much more.
Volumes are growing at a steady pace.
Your daily adventures will include :
Architecting, designing, developing, and deploying Bolt's growing backend systems
Collaborating with key internal stakeholders to determine how to scalably design backend systems and APIs to meet their needs
Coding mostly in Node.js and TypeScript (previous experience with Node.js is not required)
Contributing ideas and constructive feedback to our product development roadmap
Sharing your knowledge by giving tech talks, and promoting appropriate tech and engineering best practices in and outside of the team
Helping lead feature / initiatives from idea to positive execution
Working closely with Product to slice and dice scope and deliver piece by piece
We are not really looking for Node.js experts, but for cross-language engineers for whom a specific stack is just a tool to solve a problem, not the solution itself.
We are looking for :

Experience in making data-driven and metric-driven decisions
A drive for leading initiatives and features till the end, even if the last mile is the hardest
Experience in a microservice architecture

Experience in API design
Having a deep understanding of how to write readable, testable, maintainable, and performant code
5+ years of experience in software development
Solid understanding of algorithms and data structures
Ability to reason from first principles and grow based on previous learnings
Thrive in a culture of well-intended reciprocal feedback
Good English and communication skills
University degree in a technical subject (Computer science, Mathematics, or similar) or equivalent experience in the industry
You will get extra credits for :
Familiarity with any cloud systems (AWS, Azure, Google app engine)
Interest in real-time and asynchronous systems
Experience in working with relational databases
Real-life experience of running highly available systems
