Cartloop Β· Senior Backend Engineer

We heard you might be looking for a new opportunity! Cartloop might be the perfect stop for you. Just in case you haven't heard, growing an ecommerce brand often equals with automating human communication (we're looking at you, chat bots). But automation means losing a key piece of the shopping experience: a meaningful connection with customers.

Cartloop is an ecommerce startup that's changing the way people interact with brands. Instead of automated messages (or chat bots), we are helping brands grow independently by adding the human touch throughout the entire shopping experience. The coolest thing is we are growing quickly and possibly have the perfect position for you.

Team and culture

Cartloop is helping brands win the hearts of their customers by providing a tool that creates personal relationships at scale. To provide a missing pillar of core eCommerce experience, we're building a team of people who are ready to take on some of the most interesting challenges in the industry.

Here are some of our core values to give you a sense of who we are as a team:

  • Ownership. We do meaningful work and we own it 100%. We share wins with the team and take individual responsibility when things don't pan out. It takes courage to take responsibility even in the face of failure. Be an owner and you'll thrive here.
  • Autonomy. We have the ability to unblock ourselves, search for answers before asking for help, and make reasonable decisions within our scope without seeking consensus from others.
  • Customer-first. We understand our customers and optimize to build the best product for them.
  • Product-driven. We're on a mission to building a best-in-class product that will power millions of brands.
  • Great communication. We prefer an async way of working with a focus on deep work vs. endless meetings and politics.
  • Efficiency. Too many meetings, repetitive tasks, things that simply don't make a difference. We say no to those.
  • Impact. We take our work seriously. We’re a small squad on a mission to change ecommerce for the better.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»The role & what we are looking for:

The backend code is mostly written in Python and runs using Django (REST API). The data is stored in PostgreSQL and React for the frontend. We usually work on improving the existing API, the performance, or we create a new feature which more often than not has a component on both backend, and maybe a migration in the database.

What you'll be doing

  • Building products: you will be contributing about 80% of time by building new software products, or improve existing features.
  • Leadership: you have the ability to mentor and lead other members about 20% of time if you have an appetence for it.
  • Problem-solving: you unblock yourself and other team members when they hit a roadblock.

What you are bringing to the team

  • Previous experience working as Backend Engineer/Developer for 4 years (minimum) - ideally with Python, NodeJS or Go.
  • Experience working with Postgres (or similar)
  • Experience with CI/CD (GitLab, Github, Jenkins or similar)
  • You are product-focused and have the ability to build products by understanding the business and customers.
  • You have the drive and focus to get challenging projects over the finish line while meeting deadlines.
  • Previous experience leading engineering teams is a big plus.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced environment.

Impress us even further

  • You have a high degree of technical knowledge around scaling systems.
  • You have experience in the marketing or ecommerce space.
  • You have been in a startup from Seed to exit.
  • You have experience working in remote teams.
