Who you are and what you'll do

You will be responsible for assisting in the design, development, and maintenance of data synchronization solutions that enable seamless data transfer and integration across various applications, databases, and platforms. You will work closely with experienced developers, engineers, and data architects to solve complex data synchronization challenges.


As a part of the Data Sync team you will:

  • Collaborate with the team to design, code, test, and deploy data synchronization solutions
  • Work with APIs and protocols to integrate data synchronization capabilities into existing and new applications.
  • Maintain thorough documentation of code, processes, and best practices.
  • Stay up-to-date with industry trends and emerging technologies related to data synchronization.
  • Clearly communicate technical details to stakeholders of varying roles and levels of technical understanding.
  • Assume responsibility for client interactions on projects, ensuring seamless communication and satisfaction.


You are highly interested in learning about or already have experience with:

  • JavaScript, TypeScript, and modern web stacks
  • Test-Driven development
  • Project management
  • Postman or other API platforms
  • Data models and validation

What are some challenges?
We move fast and sometimes change directions. We can’t always wait for all the information before we try something. If you want us to guarantee exactly what you’ll be working on three months from now, we can’t give you that. On the other hand, there is a lot of high value work to do, and it won’t be boring.

We follow the Test Driven Development methodology to write code that is testable, tested, and only does what it needs to do. We don’t expect you to be an expert in TDD when you start, but we do expect you to become one. You also own the quality of your own work, and we expect you to prove that with your own integration and end to end tests.

There is a lot of discovery work involved as we frequently do things that are ahead of current technology. We also encounter tough problems that require a lot of math. It’s not a requirement for this role, but if you enjoy solving interesting geometry problems, we’d love to have your input.

Behind the scenes
We run an agile development process designed to give our developers as much uninterrupted development time as possible. We use a variety of technology and tools that currently include TypeScript, React, Jest, Three.js, Webpack, Node.js, Postgres, Kafka, MongoDB, and Docker.

There’s a lot of trust here. We are a REMOTE company. If you’re local, there will probably be a few days a week when you can expect other people to be in the office, but this role could also be fully remote. We work flexible hours, have a flexible vacation policy and work to provide the hardware or office equipment you require to unleash your potential. We will do what it takes to get things done if we said we would do it. We stay curious, challenge opinions, take risks, and learn from mistakes. We’re competitive and we like to win together. We want you to join us.

We welcome applications from people with disabilities. We provide reasonable accommodations for candidates upon request through the recruitment process.
