System1 is seeking a dynamic Senior Backend Engineer to join our team and work on RoadWarrior by MapQuest. RoadWarrior is a powerful platform that provides route creation, management, and optimization solutions for small and mid-sized businesses. Our diverse customer base ranges from FedEx contractors to small mom-and-pop shops, all of whom rely on RoadWarrior to plan their most critical daily deliveries efficiently and accurately.

As part of System1, RoadWarrior and MapQuest combine the innovative spirit of a startup with the stability, revenue, and growth of an established company. We're expanding rapidly and looking for a talented engineer to help us scale. In this role, you will design, build, operate, debug, optimize, and deploy highly-distributed, low-latency web-based systems. Leading a team of skilled engineers, you will not only write code but also bring a passion for your craft and a commitment to continuous learning. Your contributions will be crucial in shaping the future of our product and our team.

If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, are driven by innovation, and are eager to make a significant impact, we want to hear from you!

The Role You Will Have:

  • Help architect and build out the infrastructure of our API platform: Lead the transformation of our backend from .NET to Node.js, leveraging shared services used by thousands of developers on the MapQuest developer network to enhance our platform's scalability and performance.
  • Design, implement, and maintain .NET and Node.js services: Start by working extensively with .NET while progressively transitioning to Node.js, creating efficient and robust backend solutions, and ensuring seamless integration with existing services.
  • Work with both Azure SQL and MongoDB databases: Optimize data access and storage across both relational and non-relational databases. You'll have the flexibility to choose the best tool for the job, ensuring a robust and flexible backend to support high-traffic applications.
  • Own tasks end to end, taking projects through the full engineering lifecycle: From concept to deployment, you will be responsible for delivering high-quality features and improvements.
  • Collaborate and problem solve with engineers and stakeholders: Work closely with a talented team to identify challenges and develop innovative solutions.
  • Operate with a high degree of autonomy and lightweight planning processes: Enjoy the freedom to make impactful decisions while maintaining a focus on agile methodologies.

What You Will Bring:

  • 5+ years of development experience: Proven track record in building and maintaining complex systems that scale to thousands of users.
  • 2+ years of hands-on production experience in developing and maintaining backend services: using both C# and Node.js. Candidates with experience in Java and Python are encouraged to apply.
  • 2+ years of experience working with relational databases such as SQL Server, MySQL, or Postgres
  • 2+ year of experience working with NoSQL databases such as MongoDB, DocumentDB, or DynamoDB
  • Able to adhere to best practices and coding conventions: Commitment to writing clean, maintainable, and efficient code. Experience working with GIT in a collaborative environment, creating pull requests, and performing code reviews.
  • Excellent communication and time management skills: Ability to clearly articulate ideas and manage your time effectively to meet deadlines.
  • Mapping APIs: Experience with mapping APIs (e.g., Google Maps API, OpenStreetMap) is a big plus
  • Open source contributions are a plus
