Senior Golang Engineer (Temporary)

Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Golang Engineer to support our Integrations Team part-time for a period of 1 year. The Integrations Team maintains several Golang microservices that our customers rely on to be able to import essential data from various third-party billing services. At the moment we’re in the process of migrating these microservices into a new architecture based on our core tech stack of Ruby on Rails — but in the meantime, we need support from a Golang expert to help us keep our existing microservices up to date and running smoothly.

This is a part-time (~20 hours per week), freelance, remote position. The maximum anticipated contract length is 12 months — however, if you also have expertise and interest in our primary Ruby on Rails tech stack, and if our business needs align, a transition to a future full-time position might be a possibility.

Responsibilities:

  • Become the go-to person for any questions or problems involving our Go microservices
  • Work closely with our Product Manager, Customer Success Team, and Integrations Team to investigate and resolve customer issues related to our Go microservices
  • Implement bug fixes and enhancements to our Go microservices as needed
  • Improve documentation of existing features for our Go microservices
  • Support the Integrations Team in researching key functionalities of our Go microservices so that they can be replicated in the new architecture
  • Monitor & evaluate our Go microservices to ensure reliability and accuracy, and ideally head off problems before they occur

This is a part-time, temporary, remote position. Please note that we are only able to consider applicants who are eligible to work in the EU at this time.
