Senior Fullstack Engineer (Tiktok)



Berlin, Germany
Posted on Friday, September 29, 2023

We’re looking for a senior fullstack engineer to join team Chronos, building Smartly.io’s TikTok product.

Our TikTok product helps advertisers to create hundreds of variations of ads simultaneously using automation and publish them to TikTok in an easy, effective, and enjoyable way. In addition, our product allows reporting and automatic optimization of the same campaigns.

The project is almost 2 years old, we’re generating revenue, and the number of customers is growing fast. We're using modern Continuous Integration tools to automatically deploy to production multiple times a day.

Team Chronos develops the product autonomously while working closely with the most advanced advertisers and our in-house campaign managers, who use the product we build, guaranteeing a quick feedback loop.

What we're working with & what you'll do...

The product consists of our own micro-frontend, which has many complex forms, developed with React and TypeScript, and a backend service to provide an API and background processing. The backend service runs in Kubernetes, is developed with Node.js and TypeScript, and uses PostgreSQL, Redis, and RabbitMQ. In addition, we're actively using a few libraries and services that were developed in-house. Scalability is at the center of everything we build to ensure that we can support growing advertiser needs.

On the frontend side, the challenges include making the process of creating templated ads as intuitive as possible while accounting for the complexities imposed by TikTok and maintaining a similar look and feel across platforms supported by Smartly.io. With the backend, we solve problems like ensuring the template engine scales while meeting constraints of the TikTok API, such as rate limits and validations. In addition to the above, you would be building APIs and helping other engineering teams to port their features to TikTok.

You will be able to heavily influence the development of the product and own the features end-to-end. Multiple teams are involved in different parts of the product development, and we strive towards effective cross-team communication and collaboration.

Who we're looking for...

We’re looking for a growth-minded person with good communication skills and the ability to work independently. We're also seeking someone with solid experience in our technologies: React, Typescript, Node, PostgreSQL, Kubernetes, or similar tools.

What we offer you...

Our projects are a part of the DNA of our product, which means that every team will have some skin in the game. Your work will have a direct impact on our customers and our business. You will own your work, and we will support you in that ownership. We value work-life balance and have a strong culture that we hope all of our Smartlies bring their own flavour to. As a company, we provide a competitive salary, an option package, and a generous package of benefits.

What to expect from our recruitment process...

First meeting: we're getting to know each other.

Meeting the Team Lead: learn more about your future team.

Technical interviews: you take part in an interactive coding interview with our developers followed by a discussion around Systems Design and Architecture.

Final Meeting: you’ll get to meet the Engineering Group's VP.
