As one of the early developers at Nok you will be leading the technical architecture, best practices, and implementation of revolutionary greenfield projects to enable our proprietary consumer trial and reverse logistics platform. You’ll be working closely with our advisor, Dana Peele, a Director of Engineering at Grubhub with extensive experience in distributed systems and high-throughput cloud applications. The software you design and build will enable Nok’s expansion for years to come and scale as we onboard our extensive backlog of consumer brands.
We’re looking for highly experienced developers with React expertise, full-stack knowledge, and AWS know-how. And although we’re focusing on TypeScript on the front and back ends, React, and AWS PaaS offerings, nothing is set in stone and your opinions, experience, and research will influence system design decisions.
The successful candidate will have a strong focus on operational excellence, particularly testing, CI / CD automation, documentation, internal tooling, and monitoring and alerting, and be self sufficient, and able to hit the ground running. They’ll be avid readers and learners, up to date with the latest frameworks, practices, technologies, and design patterns.
The team is truly focused on building a best in class platform- we won’t be rushing to get something out the door and business, product, and tech are in alignment on maintaining the highest standards. That said, we also value simplicity and pragmatism- best practice doesn’t mean infinitely scalable or complex.
The short term product roadmap is focused on producing our consumer facing ecommerce site to enable trial sign up by our users while the team gathers data on our reverse logistics to identify pain points and properly prioritize longer term software needs.
In addition to your work as an IC, you’ll also provide mentorship to more junior devs and assist with technical blog posts and other evangelism, hiring, and interfacing with product and business at the highest level.
Come join our team and build the tech that will enable the continued success of our business and company!
