Clay is looking for a senior backend engineer to build features, design and implement APIs, and improve the performance and reliability of our systems as we scale.
We build our app using tried and tested technologies including Python, Postgres, RabbitMQ, and Redis, with our server infrastructure running on Kubernetes and other hosted & self-hosted services in Google Cloud. We believe in using the best tool for the job in hand, and don't shy away from solving hard problems! You’ll work closely with a stellar team of passionate, experienced engineers, designers and others who love building great product.
# About you:
About the Company
# Our Mission
Clay is carefully designed to help you be more thoughtful with people.
Almost everyone intuitively understands the importance (and positive impact) of thoughtfulness towards others—in fact, you've probably benefited from someone else's thoughtfulness recently! However, it's difficult, effort intensive, and time consuming to be conscientious all the time. We wanted a more streamlined and sustainable approach for thoughtfully keeping in touch with our ever-growing network. And after searching and searching for something better, we built it ourselves.
We believe that Clay is the most stunning, powerful, and beautiful way to remember who you’ve met—and what matters to them. We're grateful that our mission has resonated with a passionate user base and prominent investors like General Catalyst and Forerunner Ventures, and we are eager to carry it forward. We'd be honored to have you join us.
# Our Product
Clay is a beautiful and private home for all the people and relationships in your life.
After you link your accounts (email, calendar, LinkedIn, Twitter, iMessage, and more), Clay automatically builds a collection of everyone you know, creating a beautiful profile for each relationship. Clay populates photos, bios, education and work history, location, and social profiles automatically from available data, and keeps them updated over time.
Clay then helps you deepen your relationships by allowing you to find anyone with powerfully simple search, take notes from your latest conversation, set reminders for specific dates, see when a contact changes their LinkedIn or Twitter bio, be notified when a contact is mentioned in the news, and much more.
