Software Engineer - Full Stack Developer

Full-Time
Remote (Canada) or on-site, Montreal

Optable is building a decentralized data management and connectivity platform designed for online advertising. Our goal is to enable advertisers to leverage publisher’s first-party data in a world where third-party cookies and globally shared identifiers will disappear. We operate private instances of our software on behalf of our customers. We use modern, secure multiparty computation and cryptographic techniques to allow matching of data while protecting privacy.

At Optable, you will join a close-knit team of talented and motivated engineers with a deep passion for technology and a track record of developing scalable low-latency platforms. You will contribute to the architectural decisions, and you will be faced with very challenging problems in areas such as databases, distributed systems and cryptographic protocols. You will work with colleagues who love to teach and learn about software engineering.

As a full-stack engineer, you will be developing backends, frontends, web services & databases for our highly scalable, highly available, and globally distributed platform.

We offer a competitive compensation package, including a possible participation in the option pool. We mostly work from home with the possibility of heading to the Montreal downtown office whenever you need a change of pace or face to face meeting. We will provide you a MacBook Pro or a Linux laptop if that’s your preference.

We are looking for self-starters with demonstrable industry experience and the ability to effectively balance idealism with pragmatism in a startup environment. The ideal candidate would have 5+ years of experience, preferably developing on cloud-native backend software. Experience developing distributed systems and experience with relational or columnar databases is a plus. Any additional experience with our tech stack is also a plus.

If this seems like something you’d love to do, reach out to us. Let’s see if there’s a fit!

Our Tech Stack
  • Golang for the backend services, APIs and jobs
  • Typescript, React and Material UI for the GUI
  • PostgreSQL as the main datastore
  • Bigtable as a scalable storage for our bespoke Graph DB
  • Kubernetes on GKE with terraform and docker for infrastructure
  • OpenTelemetry for tracing and debugging
  • Cloudflare CIRCL and dalek.rs for crypto algorithms
