API Engineer at Wix
DeviantArt's Canada-based backend engineering and machine learning team. We are responsible for all search, recommendation, and machine learning applications at DeviantArt, the world's largest arts community; and we work closely with other Wix teams who leverage similar techniques and technologies to develop core Wix features.
We're looking for an API Engineer to join us in building DeviantArt Protect, our industry-leading platform for protecting creators' rights on the decentralized web. We are working at the intersection of machine learning and blockchain technologies to ensure that artists remain in control of their art. By making the decentralized economy more transparent, trustworthy, and defensible, we aim to make it accessible to more mainstream uses, and thereby to help all artists realize the potential of the NFT revolution.
A backend engineer with at least 2 years of hands-on experience in developing and deploying distributed web applications, including at least 1 year of experience in building and operating public API endpoints. You've taken at least one project from design through development and to operation and maintenance phases of its lifecycle. You are comfortable programming in Python and designing serverless applications. You're self-directed, and enjoy starting from high-level requirements rather than being given very granular tasks. You take ownership of the systems you build and expect others to do the same.
You see the potential that decentralized technologies have to change the Internet, but are also aware of the many challenges facing the ecosystem today. You're excited to take part in ensuring the Internet remains safe and open for everyone.
As an API Engineer at DeviantArt, you will:
- Contribute to the design and development of our multitenant DeviantArt Protect platform, making heavy use of Python and managed AWS services like Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB, SNS, SQS, CloudFormation, S3, and CloudWatch
- Build and scale the public APIs that enable us to offer DeviantArt Protect to internal Wix customers as well as external, third-party integrations
- Work directly with some of the top companies in the Web3 space
- Act as a primary partner-facing contact point during development of high-value customer integrations
- Mentor new employees as the team continues to grow
While we are open to US-based remote employees, we strongly prefer candidates who are able and willing to relocate to Vancouver, Canada in order to join us in working in a hybrid schedule (3 days on-site, 2 days working from home).
With over 30 different products, Wix makes it easy for anyone to succeed online. We build web creation tools and business solutions, mobile apps, payment processing technologies, as well as CRM and marketing tools that help our users in different business sectors and compete online. Our technologies are based on massive infrastructure required to securely and resiliently serve over 200 million users, and their visitors across the globe - instantly. Our scale is enormous, and our plans for the future are even bigger.
Wix's product development teams work in a dev-centric culture, deploy code hundreds of times every day using advanced automation tools, and create methodologies that enable a fast-to-production environment. We operate in small highly-collaborative teams, but belong to professional groups called Guilds, dedicated to personal and professional growth.
We're proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Wix was built around the idea that everyone has the right to be successful, online. This same vision defines us as an employer: creating a work environment where everyone is welcome, and anyone has the right to succeed.
