Job Description

Description

Indigo has a number of open roles for software engineers to build the transportation platform we use for moving grain after purchase on the marketplace. Software engineering tasks range from modeling a trucking workflow, database administration, to writing API contracts supporting internal and external customer consumption across a network of tens of thousands of carriers.

We look for a track record of the following:

  • Experience designing, implementing, and shipping live API code to customers (not necessarily related to logistics or shipping)
  • Having built the wrong system enough times to avoid the common pitfalls, whether building something personally or advising others
  • Willingness to debug problems across the stack, such as networking issues, performance problems, or memory leaks

You might be a good fit if you:

  • Know your way around a Unix shell
  • Are self-directed and enjoy designing great APIs and abstractions
  • Own problems end-to-end, and are willing to pick up whatever knowledge you're missing to get the job done
  • Are detail-oriented, and like to get the system working but know when to cut corners versus getting it exactly right
  • Know how to communicate in a remote-first environment
  • Have worked with server-side languages like Python (preferred) or JavaScript (Node), Java, or Scala

In this role, you will work on a team with a mix of UI and mobile developers towards a common goal.
