Senior Engineer (Back-end)

San Diego, CA

What we do

Tiled enables non-developers to create interactive, rich content experiences that perform like native apps or fully coded websites. These content experiences, which we call “microapps,” drive engagement. Sales, marketing, customer success, training and recruiting organizations use microapps to drive engagement with their content.

Life at Tiled

Problems waiting to be solved

We get it. We’re devs too. You're looking for a real software challenge solving real problems and keeping things interesting. You want to work with a team you get along with, where your voice will be heard, your experience is valued, and the code you write will have a real impact.

That’s Tiled. We've got a solid team and interesting projects you could work on from day 1.
To name a few specific examples:

  1. Giving the power to personalize content to our microapp builders. Think of it as a more robust mustache template system, for a non-technical audience.
  2. Scaling individual job processes to a distributed worker queue, by implementing a queue management system.
  3. Implementing a bring your own key (BYOK) system for use with Amazon S3, Azure and custom storage engines.

This is a great opportunity (not that we’re biased) for a passionate engineer who wants to have a big impact on a growing company in an exciting start-up environment. You will provide mentorship and guidance in various discussions and help shape our product roadmap and everything in between. Many opportunities to flex your big brain will present themselves and there will never be a shortage of new, exciting challenges for you to constantly improve your personal skill set. Collaboration is vital to our agile product lifecycle, where we actively measure our new features and changes. By consistently validating our ideas and rapidly prototyping we ensure that both our product and our team become stronger with each cycle.

Let’s do this! Are you the talented, collaborative senior engineer we’ve been looking to add to our development team? Along with the engaging technical challenges, Tiled also provides tremendous flexibility and work-life balance. With team member locations ranging from the bottom of the west coast in San Diego to The Bay area and all the way up to the top in Seattle, our remote working sessions are a fundamental source of productivity and bonding.
