About Summer

Greetings and sun salutations! We're Summer, a dedicated team on a mission to make data fun, accessible, and easy to use. Collectively, we have years of experience building data infrastructure in gaming, telecom, and decentralized systems. Now we've come together to build something fresh and exciting for the world of data.

As a company, we're guided by a set of core values that keep us cool, colorful, and full of energy, even during the most sweltering design and development sessions. Our values are:

  • The harder the engineering, the more excited we get.
  • Magic happens when design and engineering are best friends
  • We make room to be creative and explore
  • People first, always.

Enough about us, let's talk about you. We're expanding our team and are looking for sun-sational individuals to collaborate and grow with. If you're hot for data and have an unquenchable thirst for design, we want to hear from you!

Working at Summer

We offer competitive compensation packages, 401k, and health, dental, and vision benefits with premiums covered 100% for you and 75% for your dependents. We have unlimited time off with a minimum of 15 days per year required, so you can always load up on vitamin sea!

About the Role

TL;DR: We're building a data platform from scratch and are looking for senior backend engineers to take charge and own it.

As a Senior Backend Engineer at Summer you'll build the foundation supporting the pillars of our product. You'll be supported by a frontend team dedicated to putting a beautiful face on the systems you build and a warehouse team committed to helping customers utilize all the incredible features of your work.

Some of the pieces of the product you'll be working on immediately include systems that augment and enable our blazing warehouse performance, cross company (analytics, query, ingest) integrations orchestrated with Temporal, and the architecture/implementation of our single tenant customer experience.

You're the perfect candidate for this role if:

  1. You are confident in your ability to independently design and deliver robust, greenfield software solutions in open-ended problem domains.
  2. You have built and operated production software at scale before, ideally in Python, Go, or C++.
  3. You are familiar with modern data technologies, or have a sincere willingness and ability to learn about them.
