Job description

Company Overview

At Netlify, we're building a platform to empower digital designers and developers to build better, more elaborate web projects than ever before. We're aiming to change the landscape of modern web development.

As a Backend Engineer you’ll coordinate closely with the product team to create the backend services that support the user’s experience. The services range from our internal CI/CD system, to the core ruby API, to the variety of Go micro services we run. Our services span Go, Ruby, and Javascript and often you’ll have to work across all three languages to implement new features.

We recently raised $53M in Series C funding to bring forward the next generation of tooling for a more accessible web. This round was led by the EQT Ventures with participation from existing investors Andreessen Horowitz & Kleiner Perkins. This brings Netlify’s funding raised in total to $97M to date. Other past investors include Bloomberg Beta, Designer Fund, and Tank Hill Ventures, as well as the founders of Figma, GitHub, Slack and Yelp.

Netlify is a diverse group of incredible talent from all over the world. We’re ~43% woman or non-binary, and are composed of about half as many nationalities as we are team members.


  • Work on the core Ruby API
  • Work on the supporting Go micro services (Netlify Identity, Large Media)
  • Work on the customer facing CI/CD pipeline
  • Own features from code to production to monitoring
  • Design services for better observability, availability, and fault tolerance
  • Work with support to address frequent customer issues
  • Work cross-functionally to scope, design, and implement services
