Posted on Saturday, April 2, 2022

We are looking for Senior Backend Software Developers. Our POS system is evolving and our customers are demanding more product capabilities and flexibility with the current feature set. As a member of the Technology team, you will have the opportunity to work on some of our current cloud-backed features to help deliver and iterate on solutions that meet these demands.

Our current stack is NodeJS and Postgres running in Docker containers (but we’re open to experience with other JavaScript frameworks). We also have some .NET, some Go and a Java service (or two) that occasionally need some love. The development team is poised for growth and along with that comes many opportunities to learn different skills both technical and non technical. At TouchBistro, our developers are a tight-knit group helping drive substantial product development as we continue to grow. “Fix it, Ship it, Own it” is our department mantra that we live by daily.

  • Stay up-to-date with best practices and tooling from the JavaScript community

All About You

  • You have expert knowledge of modern JavaScript
  • You have 5+ years of experience developing production web applications using modern JavaScript frameworks like Express
  • You have a solid understanding of SQL databases and exposure to optimization techniques
  • Proven experience with NoSQL database paradigms
  • You’re an expert with RESTful API consumption, HTTP protocols and OOP
  • You have exposure to Docker, AWS, CI/CD and instrumentation tooling
  • You’ve worked with teams in an agile-scrum environment
  • You are comfortable helping lead technical decision making, mentoring junior developers and estimating delivery effectively
