About the Job

Position Description


Senior Software Backend Developer

Do you like Golang, distributed teams, distributed systems, web performance, and smart, kind, empathic teammates? Walmart Labs is looking for a backend developer to help build tools that speed up all of Walmart e-commerce. You'll be building mostly HTTP APIs, mostly in Go. These APIs control our CDNs, load balancing, and web optimization systems used across virtually all Walmart e-commerce properties.

Day-to-day Responsibilities:
A typical day might involve any of the following:
• Create an API endpoint to control our performance tooling.
• Add metrics and monitoring to increase the observability of our applications.
• Work with our configuration management systems to smooth out our deploy process.
• Give design feedback and review teammates' code.
Our stack uses Go and MySQL. You don’t necessarily need to be an expert in these technologies already. We believe smart people can learn anything and are willing to train you in our specific tools. If you're not familiar with Go, you should be able to demonstrate you'd pick it up quickly.

Minimum Qualifications


• Three years of professional experience building RESTful APIs.
• Three years of professional experience with Go, Java, Python, Ruby, or another server-side programming language.
• Comfortable with writing and maintaining performant SQL queries.
• Strong written and verbal communication skills.
• Experience with Linux systems.
• Willingness to dive into potentially unfamiliar layers of the stack.

Additional Preferred Qualifications


• Experience with Golang
• Experience with CDNs
