Meet GetUpside Engineering

The Engineering team at GetUpside is a close-knit group of hardworking, fast-learning individuals that believes in our mission to help communities thrive. We believe in a data-driven approach to decision-making and an encouraging culture that emphasizes learning from our mistakes. We debate and deliberate on the best ideas to improve our tech stack, and strive for an inclusive atmosphere that champions the psychological wellness of all of our teammates.

Our Technology Stack:

  • Kubernetes clusters in AWS EKS
  • Java Dropwizard microservices using 12-factor principles
  • Jenkins CI/CD pipeline
  • Python 3 /  AWS Lambdas deployed with Serverless
  • AWS Services managed through Terraform (RDS (MySQL), DynamoDB, S3, Athena, SNS, SQS, IAM, VPCs, Elasticache)
  • Github

What will you do?

  • Improve developer velocity by optimizing CI/CD workflows, standardizing development patterns for services and lambdas, and implementing self-service tools for infrastructure requests.
  • Identify and improve scale bottlenecks in our message-oriented architecture using best-practice patterns.
  • Improve overall system resilience. For example, you might add caching, database clustering, or service discovery solutions where appropriate.
  • Improve application and network security with industry best practices (e.g. using secrets management tools, locking down AWS VPCs/Subnets/Security Groups).

What You Bring:

  • You have strong analytical, organizational, and prioritization skills.
  • You have software development experience in our tech stack.
  • You have familiarity with performance monitoring in a distributed architecture with tools such as those provided by DataDog or NewRelic.
  • You understand continuous integration and deployment standards and implementation.
  • You understand application security and compliance best practices.
  • You demonstrate the ability to bring code from whiteboard scribbles to running in production.
  • You are passionate about working in a dynamic and growing startup environment with a tight-knit, encouraging engineering team that strives to make work interesting, challenging and fun.
  • You have a constant desire for learning and self-improvement.

The Fine Print:

  • GetUpside employees are currently working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Once it's safe to return to the office, this role will sit full-time at either our Washington, D.C. or Austin, TX location.
