We are looking for an experienced, collaborative Go developer to inspire us, teach us, and bring our architecture and coding forward.

Our partially distributed team is fun-loving, knowledgeable, and extremely productive. We're organized to let you explore and grow a variety of skills and capabilities, with many chances to create a significant impact. Many of us have strong ties to the open-source world, and have experience building tools at companies like Heroku, Red Hat, LinkedIn, and Canonical.

We value diversity and supporting a distributed culture. Gender diversity is currently about one quarter. About half of the company work outside of the home Halifax, Canada office, including product, software development, and design leaders.


What you'll doResponsibilities
  • Help lead a friendly, supportive culture that encourages you and the entire company to improve as developers, teams, and people.
  • Be a model and mentor for building well-architected, performant, well-tested, and understandable code.
  • Manage technical debt. Help us find the right corners to cut for speed, and the right problems to invest in for maintainability.
  • Be passionate about our mission, and help us imagine Manifold's future. Work closely with design and product in short design-first iteration.
  • Be curious. Learn, practice, share, and improve our knowledge and best practices in technologies, security, software development, design and collaboration.
What you'll needQualifications
  • Strong communication skills with a team centric approach to discussion and decision-making. Empathy and respect for others, with "strong opinions loosely held."
  • Enough experience deploying and operating server-side code that you have empathy for the users of our service.
  • Expertise in Go, API design, and microservices. Knowledge of OpenAPI, PostgreSQL or other databases, and gRPC is also very valuable.
  • Full command of Git, GitHub, the terminal, continuous deployment and integration, and other modern fundamentals.
  • Devops experience is very nice to have. Experience with containers and container orchestration (Kubernetes, Mesos, Nomad) is especially nice to have. Experience extending Kubernetes and working with the Kubernetes APIs would be amazing.
  • Experience working in a global, distributed team is very nice to have.
  • Our frontend is written in React; React experience is nice to have.
