Our team consists of smart, humble, & collaborative people who value ownership over all we do to create a product, team, & company that lives & breathes our motto: Build Together, Grow Together, Win Together.

You will work alongside a small & extremely talented engineering group with a vast mission. We build APIs & SDKs to power mobile experiences installed on a majority of the devices used on the planet & trusted by many of the biggest brands. Today, we are powering over 10 billion API requests a day & growing rapidly. You will be working in a fast paced agile environment. You will be wearing multiple hats along the way, traversing our stack, & working across our API, SDK & data pipelines, using languages like Java, Kotlin, & Go. You will be applying distributed systems, data engineering, & machine learning knowledge, while shaping our entire system architecture. You will also be encouraged & supported in participating as a leader in the organization at all levels. If this sounds appealing you will feel right at home at Branch!

If you are passionate about building scalable software services handling tens of billions of low latency requests per day, come join us!

As a Principal Distributed Systems Engineer, youll get to:

  • Work on building everything from APIs to SDKs across a range of technologies to support new & improved functionality that meets product needs.

  • Mentor other engineers & contribute to the team growth & development.
  • Find yourself learning something new, whether its a new technology or a quirk of a language or framework you otherwise didnt know. On occasion, you may find yourself picking up a new language or working with an unfamiliar platform. If this does not intimidate you, & you're eager to dive in & get the job done you will be right at home.
