Blissbook is seeking a Back-End Software Engineer to help build, maintain, and scale our existing and future SaaS platforms.
Blissbook’s mission is to enable creativity and allow people to express themselves, particularly in situations where it’s difficult to do so.
This mission has driven us to create Blissbook, a content management system for employee handbooks and top-down communication (policies, SOPs, etc.). With Blissbook, customers can express themselves, be creative, and represent their brand & culture AND do what they need to do to protect their company.
The ideal candidate is someone who can jump into an existing node.js codebase and start contributing right away. You should believe in our mission & market and align with our values. You want to work with other smart people on fun, challenging problems. You’re an action-oriented self-starter who can achieve specific goals with little to no supervision. As our first full-time, non-CTO engineering employee, you can turn user stories into working code independently, but also work well within a team led by the CTO.
Have a history of shipping elegant, user-friendly back-end software for web and desktop/laptop users
Can communicate clearly & efficiently.
Are enthusiastic about working in a small team or startup environment.
Consider software development to be a profession, not just a hobby.
Can troubleshoot problems on your own, but know how and when to ask for help.
Have references who will tell us (A) what a treat it is to work with you and (B) how great your engineering skills are.
You should have some understanding of our current tech stack:
Relational databases; preferably MySQL
Node.js web frameworks; preferably Express
Client-Server APIs; preferably GraphQL
Strongly typed languages; preferably Typescript
Cloud infrastructure environments; preferably AWS
Experience scaling an early stage startup is a big plus.
Your day-to-day work will center around maintaining and extending Blissbook. Your primary responsibilities will be to:
Build an integration to sync employees from a Human Resources Information System (HRIS) to a MySQL database
Implement GraphQL endpoints that enable privileged users to create multiple language variants of a document using Objection.js and MySQL.
Extend an existing Role Based Access Control (RBAC) system to add more granular controls to a document, which requires refactoring existing application code, modifying GraphQL endpoints and a MySQL schema migration.
You’ll be one of our earliest full-time employees, working directly with 2 founders who can design and build exceptional software and user experiences at a rapid pace. You’ll get:
A results-oriented work environment and the tools you need to work successfully. Remote work is the default.
A competitive salary plus incentive-based compensation.
Unlimited future growth opportunities at an early stage, self-funded startup.
Regular performance reviews to make sure things are working out for everyone.
The opportunity to work with driven, motivated, fun, PEACH-E people.
