Backend software engineers in the Integrations squad are responsible for the parts of the system that interact with third-party applications on the user’s behalf. For example, a user might send a lead from Leadfeeder to their CRM (say, Salesforce or Pipedrive), or wish to see which of their Mailchimp recipients has interacted with a certain page.
In practice, this means writing well-structured code that can be shared between integrations, dealing with multiple third-party APIs (and the problems that come with them), and handling large volumes of data. Our work connects Leadfeeder to the user’s workflow and processes, and so is of the utmost importance.
We work with a broad range of technologies including Ruby on Rails, Sidekiq, Redis, gRPC, Elasticsearch, Kubernetes as well as a number of AWS-managed databases and other services.
What you’ll work on:
  • Build public and private APIs to support the development of new features and products, coordinating with PMs and front-end developers
  • Deal with third-party APIs to add functionality to our existing integrations, as well as create brand new integrations
  • Use multiple relational and non-relational databases (including Elasticsearch) to store our users’ data and metadata
  • Help our customer success engineering team resolve edge-cases and other issues on our users’ behalf (no matter how good our code, we are dealing with ever-changing third-party APIs!)
  • Use various APM tools to monitor performance and identify issues and ensure that proper alerting is in place
  • With the help of Site Reliability Engineers, use Terraform to update and extend our AWS-based infrastructure
