About us

TeamSnap is a sports and communication platform dedicated to empowering play in youth sports. We encourage our people to bring big ideas and tiny egos which lands us on Outside Magazine’s list of “Best Places to Work” on the regular.

TeamSnap is seeking a Senior Platform Engineer to join our fully distributed engineering team and continue our impressive growth from 23 million customers to beyond! Our stack includesRuby/Rails, Elixir, and Go (the language, not the game).

Our engineers collaborate on technical challenges that enable them to learn new skills and grow their careers ( article here ). From a recent hackathon, we released the first-in-industry health check screening for teams. This led us to win the 2021 Big Innovation Award !

To deepen our connections with each other, we collaborate in pair sessions, virtual team swarms, and asynchronously within Slack. We also love to travel to fun locations across the country for all-company gatherings, team meetings, and the like (when not in a pandemic).

What you'll be doing:

  • Improve the performance and reliability of the TeamSnap Platform (web apps, APIs, backend services, microservices, databases, CI, serverless functions, etc).
    • Design, build, and maintain functionality, services, and applications to continue our rapid growth.
      • Help out anywhere your talents are required, including occasional customer support and on-call duties, staying in touch with our internal and external customers' needs.
      • What'll set you up for success:

        • Experience as a technical lead for large projects on high-scale, nontrivial apps and services.
          • Deep knowledge of Ruby, Elixir or Golang.
            • Significant experience with frameworks and libraries surrounding your areas of expertise, such as Rails and Phoenix.
              • Experience with direct usage of SQL and general database administration knowledge.
                • Experience monitoring, scaling, optimizing, and hardening Ruby web applications.
                  • Experience mentoring and coaching team members as well as being open to developing yourself.
                    • Adaptability to learn and extend custom frameworks.
                      • We have a distributed system based on services, queues, and an open API. Experience building, maintaining, and scaling these is key.
                        • Ability to debug complex issues at a platform level.
                          • A "Test-First" attitude and experience writing automated tests using a TDD, BDD, or whatever *DD methodology you jive with.
                            • Experience with automated build and deployment systems.

                                  • Familiarity with configuration management and IaC tools, such as Ansible and Terraform.
                                    • Experience being part of an on-call rotation on a distributed team.
                                      • Ability to talk to animals, Doctor Dolittle-style.
                                      • Got cold feet? If you’re thinking you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying . We’re all humans with special talents that go beyond what’s listed here.
