What will you be doing?

At Lang.ai we are building an impact-driven organization that differentiates itself from everyone as we care more about outcomes and impact than the exact implementation or tools used to solve the problems.

In this role, you will solve problems through technology, create new products and features to meet customer needs, and ensure that highly scalable systems meet the functional requirements.

As a member of our cross-functional team, you will:

  • Be responsible for understanding the problem, designing solutions and architectures, delivering high quality code, testing, documenting, deploying, while being able to communicate the impact of what you built.

What are we looking for?

  • At least 4+ years of relevant industry experience as a backend developer
  • Ownership as you maintain and ship your code and are willing to do the same for others
  • Solid coding practices that include code reviews, unit tests and end to end testing
  • Strong problem solving and troubleshooting skills
  • Experience with Go or a willingness for it to become your primary programming language
  • Product vision:
    1. Impact orientation: Ships features that users care about, prioritizing impact over output. You are able to explain why a feature matters to customers.
    2. Velocity: You are able to get the context you need to make customer-focused decisions fast. You are able to create prototypes, test them with users, and understand their results.
    3. Ownership: You are able to drive projects forward from ideation to delivery while being able to communicate the outcomes.

  • Experience with containerized applications
  • Knowledge of Kubernetes
  • Knowledge of Cloud Providers like AWS
  • Usage and optimization of data storages such as PostgreSQL and Elasticsearch
