Senior/Staff Software Engineer - Backend



Software Engineering
Posted on Friday, December 16, 2022

At Eppo, we are building the future of experimentation, so that every company can have an entrepreneurial, customer oriented culture. We believe that AB experiments uniquely put customers at the center of product decisions instead of political processes.

Our next-gen platform allows companies to 10x their volume of AB experiments by embracing the full technical rigor of engineering and statistics while focusing intensely on the evangelism of results and accessibility to business users. We are built for the modern cloud infrastructure, with easy integrations and an emphasis on privacy and security.

Our team is made up of veteran product builders from Airbnb, Slack, and Snowflake, and our product is powering experimentation at some of top companies around the world. We’ve raised over $19M in Seed and Series A funding backed by top-tier venture firms like Menlo VC and Amplify Partners.

About the Role

We are looking for a senior backend developer who is interested in working with big data systems. You will play a lead role with our data engineering team to build out the (very) high scale systems that manage our customers experiments using Big Query, Snowflake, and RedShift. This is a role for a true polyglot, capable of solving hard engineering problems that work across different data architectures to make experiments work for our customers. You will write backend software using Nest.js (Typescript) to power AirFlow tasks and our front-end API.

At Eppo we work with data scientists and engineers at some of the world’s largest technology companies. You will become an expert in these systems and see first-hand what the bleeding edge of data technology looks like today.

Eppo is changing how companies make decisions by combining the modern data stack with high velocity experimentation. Our goal is to empower our customers to learn about the world and their business in ways they never thought possible before, and we need your help!

Your Background

We are looking for people who can operate end to end. Your lines of ownership will extend beyond data pipelines, into application code and product thinking.

Here are some of the skills and attributes we are looking for:


  • Building and maintaining backend APIs that power internal and external systems alike

  • Experience with OLAP SQL queries and processing

  • Expertise with software engineering practices like test coverage and CI/CD workflows

  • Ability to design and implement systems starting with nothing but requirements


  • Startup mindset: You are comfortable making choices in ambiguous situations, and think of the team's success and failure as your own.

  • Dependable: We don't know what odd situations will come down the pike, both in our data pipelines and as a company. You will know how to build reliable systems so customers trust our data and trust us.

  • Optimizer: We operate on very high scale data systems. You will design and build software that needs to be reliable and performant at scale.

  • Leader: Willing to raise your hand and take ownership over code and systems


  • Competitive senior engineer salary and early stage equity

  • Top of the line health, dental, and vision insurance

  • New laptop/equipment of your choice and whatever else you need to be productive

  • Compensation for learning materials, tools and resources to help you learn and grow

The typical compensation for this role ranges from $180,000-$220,000. At Eppo, we are dedicated to building an equitable and inclusive workspace, while encouraging entrepreneurship and growth.
