Job Description

Do you care equally about code quality and about creating a product user will love?At Niphtio, we're looking for mid- and senior-level software developers to join us in building the next-generation of content aggregation, curation, and discovery tools. We're especially looking for folks to contribute to our backend systems.

  • We are an early-stage, self-funded start-up, founded by one of the creators of Google Reader, and we are a 100% distributed team. (USA and Canada only — we are not able to sponsor or transfer visas for this position.)
  • You will be one of our first hires and will be working closely with our founder/CEO. You'll have plenty of autonomy and real opportunities to grow and build your skills here.

Technologies we're currently using include:

  • PostgreSQL
  • Redis
  • Kotlin
  • GraphQL

That said, we care more about your ability to learn new things and your passion for excellence in our craft than preexisting knowledge in any specific technology.

Bonus skills:

  • API design
  • Database schema design
  • Building distributed systems

As part of this job you'll wear many different hats, including developing for the back end, front end, mobile, and operations. You will have a direct influence on
