Engineering at Backbone

"Backbone feels as first-party as you could make something that is literally not first-party feel." - TechCrunch

Our highly-integrated software stack presents an unbelievably unique set of engineering challenges. The interplay among embedded software on our devices with native app software and back-end software is crucial to bringing it all together. Moreover, we've found that building products for players can be fun and rewarding because it's insanely fun to play games on your own product!

What you’ll be doing

  • Design and implement low-latency, high-availability, and performant applications
  • Architect elegant and maintainable code
  • Write automated tests to enable us to move fast and deliver quality

What we’re looking for

  • Strong proficiency with JavaScript and TypeScript
  • Knowledge of Node.js and frameworks available for it such as Express
  • Understanding of asynchronous programming
  • Strong computer science and software engineering fundamentals
  • Passionate about product and vision
  • Remote-friendly

Bonus Points

  • Familiarity with GraphQL and Apollo
  • Experience with functional programming
  • Knowledge of front-end technologies (web and/or iOS)
