Backend Developer


As a Backend  Developer at Twubs, you will specialize in full stack development. You will be an integral part of a hard working, geographically distributed team. You are a flexible, responsive team player that thrives on aggressive progress and delivering on commitments.

Some of the things that excite you about the insane breadth and depth of social “data” are storing, dissecting, synthesizing, summarizing, processing, and manipulating it efficiently and effectively. Query optimization that results in statistically relevant reduction in processing speed or power makes you feel good about life.

Your excitement about cloud computing, high volume system scaling, and redundant / fail-over networks keeps you up at night (or sometimes finds you going to bed when most people are waking up). The potential of powerful APIs, SOAP, AJAX and the endless potential of AWS makes you giddy.

You meticulously document and optimize your code. You probably look down on people that do not use an adequate version control systems or documentation  structures. Sometimes you probably get in arguments about platforms / technologies and either brag about how many or few lines of code it takes to accomplish a need.

You may get dogmatic at times, but you understand the ultimate goal is a team working hard toward a common goal and sometimes compromises are required to meet business needs and progress. You are an insatiable learner, constantly exploring and experimenting with new technologies, devices, frameworks, and platforms.
