Job Description

Our traffic numbers are growing, and so is our list of feature/project ideas 🙂 We are therefore looking for a backend engineer that can help with scaling, extending, and evolving our backend infrastructure to handle all this.

We’re a small and flexible team, and the person we hire will play a very integral part in engineering. We expect the person to work on everything from architecture, implementation, infrastructure management, and firefighting — just like the rest of us.

Technology-wise, the backend is mostly built in Python, using MySQL and MongoDB as data stores — everything hosted in Amazon AWS. With around 3.5M concurrent visitors at peak hours every day, this infrastructure sees a lot of data. Plenty of challenges to be solved.


  • Drive development of internal and external APIs
  • Integrate external data sources with chartbeat
  • Scaling existing backend systems


  • Architectural and data modeling skills
  • Experience with building high-traffic systems
  • Strong programming skills
  • BS or MS in Computer Science (or related field)


  • AWS
  • Python / Tornado
  • MongoDB
  • MySQL
  • Nginx
  • Bonus points for C knowledge
