Americas Only


Published on

We believe that software will play a crucial role in preventing pollution and protecting our environment. Governments can create stacks of environmental regulations, but it will only be with the help of software that companies will have any hope of following these rules. Mapistry’s environmental compliance platform transforms the way that hundreds of the world’s largest industrial facilities manage their environmental programs, and we’re looking for a creative and driven backend Javascript engineer to join our team.

As a backend engineer at Mapistry, you’ll work closely with everyone on the engineering and product teams as well as with domain experts to build seamless customer experiences, scalable systems, and fast and efficient ETL pipelines. We are a small, tight-knit engineering team, and this is a unique opportunity to be an integral part of scaling Mapistry at a rapid pace.

In this role, you will:

  • Build services, enrich the existing codebase, and create/improve/use the patterns that power the backend of our entire product
  • Create and implement sophisticated data pipelines and REST APIs
  • Proactively participate in rethinking and refactoring existing backend components
  • Use technologies like NodeJS, Postgres, Snowflake, and Looker to build modern, scalable web applications
  • Jump in and solve hard problems across the entire stack
  • Mentor others on your team to help them grow as engineers across many dimensions

We’d love to hear from you if you:

  • Have at least 5 years of experience working as a software engineer and at least 2 years of Typescript OR Javascript experience building backend services
  • Take pride in the things you build, from the clean, testable, and KISS code to the reliability of backend services
  • Have a track record of trying and learning new things
  • Have past experience building systems that strike a balance between shipping quickly and ease of future change while maximizing quality
  • Lean towards refactoring and redesigning over rewriting
  • Have a point of view but are low ego
  • Are a humble, respectful and empathetic individual that looks after the team and takes pride in the personal and team's growth equally
  • Are naturally curious about the technologies you use and take the initiative to dive in and figure things out when you have a question
  • Are committed to customer happiness and trust
  • Consider accessibility not just a nice-to-have, but a must
  • Are hungry to change the way companies follow environmental regulations and help them reduce pollution

What you’ll find at Mapistry:

  • A fast-paced and collaborative environment where you can reduce pollution while helping manufacturing businesses thrive
  • A truly gender diverse team, including 67% women company-wide (and a team dedicated to reaching the same level of equity in all the dimensions of diversity)
  • Competitive compensation, including stock options
  • Benefits to help you live and work at your best: Health insurance, 401k, unlimited PTO, paid parental leave, cell phone reimbursement
  • Fully remote environment: Work from anywhere in North or South America, with support in setting up a home office and a monthly coworking space reimbursement
  • A flexible work environment and a team that believes that people themselves make the best choices about how they work best to get things done

At Mapistry, you’ll be a part of a team of incredible engineers who work together to build valuable and delightful experiences for our customers. Come join us!

We truly care about building an inclusive and diverse team. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. We are committed to building an equity-driven workplace with a team that is as intersectional as our users. This means meeting with and hiring candidates who are underrepresented in tech, and we will not fill this position without first meeting with a representative group of candidates.
