Wattpad is in hyper growth mode & we are seeking several engineers to grow our team. We have a need specifically for engineers with Go (Golang) expertise. Wattpad runs on a large distributed system that handles 45k requests every second. The microservices are written in Go, with the existing system in PHP, choreographed using SNS/SQS, each backed by S3, DynamoDB, MySQL & other appropriate storage solutions. At this scale, caching is paramount so we have multiple terabytes of data across memcached, redis & groupcache. We have opportunities to build new features & improve scalability of our core system written primarily in Go & PHP. If you have a passion for building solutions at a massive scale, let's talk!
