Current Openings:

Senior Backend Software Engineer

As a Senior Backend Software Engineer, you will take the lead in solving a wide array of engineering challenges. You will solve difficult scaling problems; even though we are a small company, most of our traffic comes at the same time every day (noon is Bagel time at Coffee Meets Bagel!) so we have to solve the scaling challenges of much larger companies. You will be responsible for maintaining the site from an operational perspective, keeping the website and API running 24x7 and responding quickly to outages or problems. You will help architect and implement new features on our mobile apps by supporting the iOS and Android engineers with our internal API. You will help us improve our core matching algorithm using machine learning and other techniques.

  • BS in Computer Science or Engineering from a top university

  • 4-8 years industry experience in software
  • Experience using python (Django is a plus)
  • Experience working with SQL and NoSQL databases
  • Familiarity with Linux
  • A passion for startups

We use the following in our technology stack; you should have significant experience in the majority of them and be prepared to become an expert in the rest quickly:

Lead System Administrator

Can you guess what this graph is?

That's our daily traffic curve. Not the typical bell curve you've probably seen at previous companies, right? If you are familiar with our product, you can guess why that is. Because of our once-a-day model, we have unique operational challenges faced by few other companies. As the Lead System Administrator, you will be the first full-time employee dedicated to operations. You will help us with difficult scaling challenges, help us reduce (eliminate!) outages, and improve performance. You will help us globalize our infrastructure as we prepare to launch internationally, optimize our hardware usage for our highly predictable traffic surges, and help us explore new technologies in production. You'll respond quickly to production issues and work closely with our software engineers to resolve problems and improve stability. You will build the Systems team as we grow the company.

You should have:


  • BS in Computer Science, IT, or a related field from a top university
  • Managed operations for large scale, distributed systems
  • Passion for supporting high quality products, a deep sense of ownership
