We are witnessing a massive shift of consumer presence from offline to online. With it, there is a need for technologies that enable online businesses to thrive. Bolt is at the center of this universe leading the next generation of e-commerce, having created a best-in-class buying experience from checkout to fraud detection, payments, and more. With our help, retailers can successfully compete with the online retail giants that have the means to invest in technology. 

Bolt has 4 product engineering teams that are constantly working toward building new features. The application infrastructure team’s goal is to support these teams to be able to move fast and have the resources they need. The fun part of being on this team is having to touch every part of the stack right from CI / CD pipelines, database management, deploy processes all the way to building a distributed jobs framework for async tasks. Every engineer on this team gets to shape the engineering and technology at Bolt in a fundamental way. Some of the things the team is looking at right now is introducing a NoSQL database, re-writing our asset deploy pipeline making better use of CloudFront’s edge lambas.

An Insider's view of Bolt

What are some social events your company does?

We host a variety of events, ranging from game nights to cross-team hot wing challenges to in-office volunteering events. While remote, we’ve done a lot of trivia, Netflix parties (Groundhog Day, anyone?), poker tournaments for charity, and employee-led cooking/cocktail making classes. We try to have fun inclusive events for everyone at Bolt.

Julie Wu

Experience Lead

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Currently, the app infra team is working on how we scale Bolt engineering. This is not just how we handle more load, but also how we make sure our engineering team scales. We are thinking about the next-generation infrastructure for Bolt. Making sure a team can build robust yet quickly extensible code is our big focus.

Roopak Venkatakrishnan

We support Bolters' development by providing them access to a formalized mentorship program, stipends for external training and education, manage development, career planning guides, DEI training, and other internal programs (just to name a few).
