muze | muze.chat/ | Senior Android Engineer (Kotlin/Java/OpenGL/REST/gRPC/protobuf) | Senior Backend Engineer (Python/Django/Redis/AWS/gRPC/protobuf) | NYC | currently remote, but ability to work from our Brooklyn office eventually is preferred
muze is a different kind of messaging app – a place that elevates the linear ways of messaging into something new. Each conversation takes place on a free-form canvas where you can zoom, draw, layer, go back, remix, etc: a space where talking with a friend is more personal, creative, and fun. We're building a platform that removes creative constraints, letting you express yourself more freely. Our ambitions are to evolve the way we digitally communicate.
Apply for the Android role if you're a self-motivated Android engineer interested in working on a highly-scalable app. Our product invites a creative approach to performance and optimization. Experience with custom, complex view rendering solutions will come in handy. This role is our first full-time hire for our Android team – you will take ownership of bringing the Android app to launch, and you will be able to help build out and lead the new Android team.
Apply for the backend role if you're an excellent communicator, interested in working on a small team of creative individuals, and passionate about building highly scalable and secure infrastructure. As our second full-time backend hire, you'd help shape team culture and work closely with our current lead backend engineer to elevate our backend infrastructure to the next level. Experience with message brokering and data security at scale is a big plus.

We're an engineering and design studio based in Brooklyn, NY, with dedicated team members across the globe. We're happiest when building the first version of a founder's vision or helping an older company enter new, innovative territory.

String and Key | Senior Software Developer (Backend) | Brooklyn, NY or Chapel Hill, NC | ONSITE and REMOTE (US) | Full-time | https://www.stringandkey.com
We used to be a successful digital agency specializing in creating fintech products for our partners, and now, we've taken our award-winning team and are building something for a new company company of our own, solving the challenges that excite us most and creating a product we want to bring to market ourselves. Our team of roughly 30 (and growing) is building a product for financial protection, helping those who fall through the cracks of the traditional insurance market gain access to protection, and using innovative strategies to keep things affordable, engaging, and educational for our customers.
We're seeking a talented senior developer with a backend focus to join our team in either our Dumbo, Brooklyn or Chapel Hill, NC offices and help build and maintain the core backend systems powering our API, vendor integrations, and internal administration tools.
Full time remote work is an option, though we prefer your home base be within driving range of one of our offices so you can occasionally join for cultural events, all-company training and planning sessions, etc. Currently, we are not able to hire remote employees located outside of the United States.
Position and tech stack details:
- Senior Ruby developer, with substantial Rails experience
- Not a supervisory role, though senior developers are expected to participate in mentoring activities with more junior members of the team
- Ruby/Rails API-only backend, no UI rendered directly from Rails
- Apache Kafka (as a message broker for a heavily event-driven architecture)
- Deployment on AWS via ECS (docker-compose for local developer environments for now)
- Core API serves clients written in React with Typescript on the web side, and native mobile apps in Swift and Kotlin on the mobile side
Other notes: we pay meticulous attention to process, have robust internal training programs and professional development efforts, and strive for a culture of trust, debate, and transparency. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, we close our offices at 2pm on Fridays to enjoy the weather and time with family/friends. We practice no-meeting Wednesdays, have year-round family time blocked off on Wednesday evenings, each quarter take a day off for a fun culture event in each office, as well as a quarterly mini-conference where our team hosts talks on everything from building an e-commerce side hustle to how to make great hummus at home. We have flexible PTO and remote work options, fully-paid healthcare premiums for employees and generous family coverage, 4% 401k match, gym stipend, transit/parking stipend, and when our offices are operating again we keep a fully-stocked kitchen in each (well beyond just snacks). While our offices are closed due to COVID, we are donating our office food budget to local food banks. Visa sponsorship is an option if required.
If you're an experienced Ruby developer and the above sounds attractive, please feel free to email me your resume or with any other questions: seth.hochberg AT stringandkey DOT com. If you want more details about the company or other position listings, https://www.linkedin.com/company/42147988
