About the role

  • As a Software Engineer at Transcend on the Integrations Team, you will help develop Integrations for products like DSR Automation, Structured Discovery, Unstructured Discovery and Silo Discovery.

What you'll do

  • Collaborate and contribute to building Integrations that power products like DSR Automation, Structured Discovery, Unstructured Discovery and Silo Discovery.
  • Proactively fix production and development issues.
  • Optimize our deployment pipeline and integration testing strategies.
Who you are
  • You have around 1 or more years of experience in software development.
  • You enjoy thinking about distributed backend systems and debug them.
  • You know how to ship production-ready code. You should know what tests to write, what to log, what metrics to capture, what alerts to set up.
  • You're effective at tackling large, somewhat open-ended problems. We're a small team, and not every problem will have a fully spec-ed out solution for you to implement. Spec-gathering, writing design docs, validating potential solutions with teammates, and decomposing work are all part of the job.
  • You’re able to identify trade-offs and take them into consideration when making decisions (e.g, speediness vs tech debt vs cutting scope). You can articulate which factors have higher priority depending on the context.
  • You are effective at async and online methods of communication. Our team is entirely distributed, so the ability to clearly and thoughtfully communicate despite the space and time barriers is very important.
  • You have experience with unit testing and integration testing. We use mocha for unit testing and a mix of Cypress and playwright for E2E testing
  • You know when to ask for help. We want you to succeed, but you have to let us know how to best do that! We don't want you to be stuck debugging something for hours, especially if it's something very particular to our codebase. If something is unclear, make sure to ask your mentor or manager for clarification!
  • You have experience with client-side and backend JavaScript as well as typed languages (ideally TypeScript). We use React for our UI, but if you’re coming from Vue.js or other frameworks, that’s totally cool too.

Bonus Points

  • Amazon Web Services (e.g. Lambda, DynamoDB)
  • RDBMS (PostgreSQL)
  • Sequelize knowledge
  • GraphQL
Why join us?
The people at Transcend are driven, kind and know how to balance work, life and memes. We learn from each other and have a strong support system.

We have a strong mission to protect user privacy rights everywhere. The privacy compliance landscape is growing, and we are at the forefront of building solutions that protect user privacy rights with modern infrastructure and automation.

You will have autonomy and trust to drive initiatives from the start.

We believe that turning the principles of data privacy into exercisable human rights is one of the most high-impact ways we can spend our time, and so we're building an ambitious team that’s passionate about solving important problems and having fun while doing it.
