$170k - $210k

My client is looking to hire a Staff Backend Architect to join their team. They are startup that was acquired by one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. They offer aesthetic brands including Botox, CoolSculpting, Juvéderm and more. In its current state, this platform services over 3 million users and is present in nearly 20,000 medical offices/spas in the U.S. Healthcare providers use this platform for reporting and buying everything and overall managing their products on this platform.

As a Staff Backend Architect, you will work across their engineering teams. You will need to have a deep understanding of the middle tier, data modeling (preferably data pipeline experience), and event driven systems. You will be splitting your time between architecting, and collaborating with product managers across teams. You'll work in a Node environment but also interface with other teams that use Python and Golang. The ideal candidate is a tech agnostic, takes ownership, and shows gratitude.
