Senior Backend Engineer at Leaf Logistics

We are Leaf Leaf is on a mission to upend the way companies buy and sell transportation. Every year, billions of dollars, hundreds of megatons of carbon and millions of person-hours are wasted because the companies who ship goods and the companies who carry them aren’t upfront about their needs and abilities. Our platform finds ways for buyers and sellers to contract binding commitments for plannable and predictable freight and allows those contracts to be traded when needs change. In time, Leaf will become the hub through which the trillion-dollar American freight market is managed. We are a team of experienced, smart, and mildly disagreeable troublemakers who like taking on unreasonably big challenges; we know how to build things, we’ve lived what’s broken in this industry, and we’re looking for bright, ambitious people to help us drag the transportation world kicking and screaming into the 21st century. What does a Senior Backend Engineer do? As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will help create the infrastructure layer for B2B transportation. You will collaborate cross-functionally with Product, Data-Science, and other teams to deliver new products and solutions to meet both internal and customers’ needs. You’ll be responsible to drive the implementation of new features end to end from refinement to release to production. As priorities and needs in a startup constantly change, you will use your experience and judgement to balance between rapid iterations and engineering well-architectured, adaptable, secure, and scalable services. As part of a growing team, you have the opportunity to shape not only the product we’re building, but also our ever-evolving engineering culture and processes. Who doesn't? What we’re trying to do is hard. Technically difficult some of the time, but also hard because we’re asking for big changes from people who are usually very comfortable doing things the way they’ve always been done. There is a lot of frustration, and it’s easy to put a lot of work into something that doesn’t bear fruit. But we’re here to put a big dent in a gigantic industry, something we’ll all be proud of a decade from now.   We’re also a startup. Priorities change all the time, something’s always on fire, and there’s twice as much work to do as hands to do it. It’s uncomfortable, new challenges surface constantly, and that means it’s up to you to manage how you spend your time in the midst of conflicting priorities.    We’re well-funded, with advisors and investors who’ve built legendary companies. But we’re also deploying that capital aggressively, so you should expect uncertainty and discomfort.   If the above sounds daunting, you’re a perfectly sound and reasonable person who probably won’t fit in at Leaf. If this strikes you as an exhilarating milieu, well, let’s talk. Compensation Leaf offers a very comprehensive compensation package including competitive base salary, variable compensation and health benefits.   Leaf Logistics is an equal-opportunity employer and we welcome applicants from all backgrounds. If you’re a passionate team player who wants to have an outsized impact on a diverse and dynamic team, we’d love to hear from you!
