About Us

Bolt engineering teams are working on unique product challenges: complex algorithms for demand prediction, optimal real-time pricing, routing, fraud detection, distributed systems and much more. Volumes are growing at a steady pace.

Your daily adventures will include:
  • Architecting, designing, developing, and deploying Bolt's growing backend systems
  • Collaborating with key internal stakeholders to determine how to scalably design backend systems and APIs to meet their needs
  • Coding mostly in Node.js and TypeScript (previous experience with Node.js is not required)
  • Contributing ideas and constructive feedback to our product development roadmap
  • Sharing your knowledge by giving tech talks, and promoting appropriate tech and engineering best practices in and outside of the team
  • Helping lead feature/initiatives from idea to positive execution
  • Working closely with Product to slice and dice scope and deliver piece by piece

We are not really looking for Node.js experts, but for cross-language engineers for whom a specific stack is just a tool to solve a problem, not the solution itself.

We are looking for:
  • Thrive in an environment that has a fast customer-feedback cycle and having empathy for the end-user
  • Experience in making data-driven and metric-driven decisions
  • A drive for leading initiatives and features till the end, even if the last mile is the hardest
  • Experience in a microservice architecture
  • Strong principles towards writing clean, simple, secure, and maintainable code
  • Experience in API design
  • Having a deep understanding of how to write readable, testable, maintainable, and performant code
  • 5+ years of experience in software development
  • Solid understanding of algorithms and data structures
  • Ability to reason from first principles and grow based on previous learnings
  • Thrive in a culture of well-intended reciprocal feedback
  • Good English and communication skills
  • University degree in a technical subject (Computer science, Mathematics, or similar) or equivalent experience in the industry

You will get extra credits for:
  • Familiarity with any cloud systems (AWS, Azure, Google app engine)
  • Interest in real-time and asynchronous systems
  • Experience in working with relational databases
  • Real-life experience of running highly available systems
  • Experience building distributed high-volume systems
