This is Engineering at Lattice

Lattice’s Engineering team is continuously working to better both our product and our craft. We use a modern, cutting-edge tech stack aimed at developer productivity and delight. We strive for maintainable, robust, and performant code. We’re highly collaborative and continuously iterative and work closely with designers and product managers. We prioritize not only great technical architecture but also an amazing product experience.

The Platform Frameworks team is part of the broader Platform organization and provides tools and frameworks that accelerate feature delivery for developers working on the Lattice product suite. The team’s mission is to “pave roads” in order to provide well-worn pathways to success for product engineers. We aim to reduce complexity and cognitive load while at the same time improving the reliability of our products and applications.

What You Will Do

  • You will build software to help the humans powering organizations to thrive.
  • You will work with other engineers to build and own products across a modern tech stack, including Terraform, PostgreSQL, Node.js, GraphQL, Relay Modern, and TypeScript. We rely on AWS to host our infrastructure.
  • You will drive the implementation of complex projects, including those that require cross-functional collaboration with product managers and other engineering teams.
  • You will make contributions to our engineering practices, identifying and evangelizing improvements to improve our team output.

What You Will Bring to the Table

You have created, maintained and deployed an online software product in production, for general use. This will be one of our first hires in Portugal and you're excited to help set the foundation of our team there.

  • You have production-level experience writing server-side JavaScript / TypeScript in a Node.js environment.
  • You are no stranger to SQL — you know how to efficiently model data and write performant queries in a relational database like PostgreSQL.
  • You seek out the root cause when debugging software defects, and champion improvements that prevent future issues.
  • You are passionate about lower-level systems problems, DRY patterns, and high-performance code.

You are a great communicator and collaborator.

  • You take care to write code that your colleagues will also own, comprehend, and maintain.
  • You are clear and concise in explaining your thought process and in enumerating the tradeoffs made in your work.
  • You like to learn new things and use them right away
  • You have strong communication skills, both verbal and written, in English.
  • It's required that you're located in Portugal and comfortable commuting to Lisbon from time to time.
