We’re looking for someone to increase our development velocity by collaborating closely with our development and cloud teams to create and maintain our internal development platform.
- Create integration libraries between our back-end code and our SaaS solutions (AWS API, Terraform Cloud API, New Relic, and more)
- Help suggest and implement TypeScript best practices within our Front-end and Back-end codebases
- Split shared functionality out of our codebases and into internal libraries, helping write usage and contribution documentation
- Refactor backend and frontend code to more natively integrate with our primary AWS services, such as Parameter Store, Secrets Manager, CloudWatch, and more
- Collaborate with our cloud team to deprecate and replace in-house tooling with AWS-managed solutions
- Help in our efforts to break apart our monolithic API into a more loosely-coupled architecture, focusing primarily on shared functionality and routing
- Help create dashboards and internal tooling so that our customers can have more control over their Knack app’s, and our developers can increase their own development velocity.
