Engineering - Senior Backend Engineer - Platform Services (Scala)
We believe that everyone can and should automate the tools they use every day.
The Tray Platform empowers anyone to do more faster by harnessing automation with the industry-leading, low-code general automation platform.
With Tray.io, citizen automators throughout organisations can easily automate complex processes through a powerful, flexible platform, and can connect their entire cloud stack via powerful APIs (without actually having to learn the APIs!).
Your mission is to empower our customers by building secure, scalable, enterprise software that is well tested and follows industry standard patterns. You’ll work closely with the product team and our frontend engineering teams to deliver value to our customers while also investing in the quality and stability of our existing platform.
- Build new features and ensure excellent code coverage in our testing
- Identify performance bottlenecks and improve our code base
- Propose strategies to migrate us away from legacy systems and keep our platform evolving with current technology standards
Our Tech Stack
As a backend engineer, you’ll primarily be working in Scala using the Play framework and persisting data to PostgreSQL. We provision our infrastructure with Terraform and we host on AWS. We keep our code in GitHub and deploy using Github Actions.
Languages and frameworks are just tools and we believe that with the proper support, these tools present a low barrier for talented engineers. It helps if you’re familiar with the tools we use, but if you’re a talented developer we think we can provide the support to up-skill you. The successful candidate should have suitable development experience, have a test driven mindset, be willing to learn and be accustomed to working in a collaborative environment.
Your team will fully support you to do your best work
Our team is humble but spirited people, who take immense pride in what they do. We work in a culture built on friendship, transparency, and above all, looking out for one another.
The heart of Tray is made of generosity and trust. It is a community built on individual interactions between people who think differently; who are always available to help, to answer questions and to empower. You'll have endless opportunities to learn and grow in a fun, fast-paced, and open environment. We love to achieve things that haven’t been done before.
We believe in diversity and equal opportunity.
We believe that in building diversity we build strength. We encourage all to apply, and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status. We will make sure that people with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process.
