Job Description

Since Chain.io is primarily focused on Supply Chain Integrations, the main thing you will be doing in this position is working within the back-end, cloud and infrastructure areas - performing engineering, development and programming tasks using back-end Javascript (Node.js), doing Test Driven Development (TDD) and Unit Testing activities using tools like JEST and working with our tech stack that includes Node.js, AWS Lambda, CircleCI, React, Terraform and Blockchain technologies.
  • Chain.io believes heavily in TDD. You will be working alongside an expert engineering team who value deploying high quality code.
  • Our philosophy is for our engineers to work in teams of two and balance pairing with some time for individual focus. If you are only interested in working alone, and don't have a passion for TDD and Unit Testing best practices you will probably not be a good fit for us.
  • You will be solving complex supply chain integration business and technology challenges and requirements by developing new and connecting existing solutions with small focused microservice functions.
  • You will be developing efficient and reusable code, primarily on the back end using Node.js.
  • You will work directly with our integration partners and clients; communicating on integration testing and analysis.
  • You will work within a serverless platform consisting of many microservices and cloud services.

The ideal person for this position should have a passion for back-end Development, be strong in Javascript (Node.js), can work collaboratively with others, has a knack for writing reusable code, and embraces TDD, Unit Testing using JS Promise, DevOps, and Automation.
  • You MUST have 3-7+ years of experience, primarily as an engineer working in the back-end and understand the principles of microservice development as well as Node.js.
  • Having experience AWS Lambda, Jest, CircleCI, React and Terraform is great.
  • Strong belief in TDD, DevOps and automating as much as possible.
  • If you have prior experience using JEST or a similar framework for Unit Testing this would be a huge plus.
  • Prior experience with microservices and architecting systems in the cloud.
  • Experience leading a development team would be a huge plus.
  • Ability to break down complex problems into a variety of simple and generic problems.
  • Comfortable with client interaction.
  • Ability to work collaboratively and productively with others.
