We’re looking for a Backend Software Engineer II to join our team of humble “misfits that fit”.


Procurify is looking for a motivated, collaborative, and creative person who is passionate about technology.

You’re a person with a knack for solving some of the most pressing technology challenges in SaaS application development while collaborating with the team of engineers around you, and you’re eager to help our customers achieve the best version of themselves.

    • Contribute to improving the implementation and architecture of the backend code.

  • Strengthen the technical output of your team and contribute backend technical designs that follow appropriate design patterns, are architecturally sound, and adhere to secure coding practices.

  • Contribute clean, efficient, testable, and reusable code that is easy to maintain and extend and aligns with our technical strategy and coding standards.

  • Participate in code reviews and contribute to your team’s efforts to deliver high-quality code, share knowledge and learnings, and provide relevant feedback.

  • Participate in the investigation and resolution of defects, degraded performance, and any other issues affecting the quality of the code your team owns.

  • Understand the observability and monitoring of relevant system behavior in the areas of the application owned by your team and how the data collected could be used to identify improvements to application performance and stability.

  • Be curious and learn continuously–keep up-to-date with industry trends and advancements and contribute to the combined knowledge of your team through your feedback.

  • Learn and play with the best tech stack you could ask for–our product and engineering teams work with:

    • AWS

    • Python/Django

    • Typescript

    • Docker

    • Kubernetes

Who we’re looking for

  • 2+ years of Software Engineering experience with a focus in backend development.

  • Exposure to refactoring, maintaining, and improving existing solutions.

  • Experience working with agile and software delivery best practices such as scrum/kanban, CI/CD, test automation, and infrastructure as code.

  • Able to work with a moderate degree of autonomy and demonstrate initiative.

  • Solid problem-solving, technical design, and analytical skills.

  • Able to prioritize work and manage dependencies while solving challenging problems.

  • Strong teamwork and communication with other software engineers, leadership, and others in the organization with less technical backgrounds.

  • Acts with compassion and empathy for others. Believes that your team’s success is your success.
