We are a team of engineers, data scientists, designers, product managers with the vision to connect millions of readers to the right story at the right time. Wattpad's Engineering & Data Squads are growing & we're hiring a number of Backend Engineers at various seniority levels! We have opportunities to build new features & improve scalability of our core systems written primarily in Go & PHP. If you have a passion for building solutions at a massive scale, this is the role for you!
You'll be an integral part of not only implementing solutions to those challenges but designing them as well. We want to support you in your career & help you level up your skills. Our engineers frequently attend conferences, watch tech talks together & present their technical achievements (and failures!). We understand how important flow is. We're continually evolving how we work to ensure that engineers get to spend all their time doing what they enjoy most: building & fixing stuff.
