Job Description

At Locals, We empower creators to be independent.

Founded in 2019 and based in New York, Locals is a platform that empowers independent content creators to publish their content, engage with their supporters, and make money from subscriptions (and not ads), on their own terms.

On, Creators significantly outperform other platforms in conversion rate to paid, subscription earnings, and positive sentiment.

About the role:

As a Senior Backend Engineer at Locals, you will be responsible for developing mission critical technological improvements that ensure the continued success of our product releases. This role is much more than pure coding (PHP, MySQL) and backend API fluency: high-level problem solving, architectural collaboration and strategy, and an ability to think quickly and juggle multiple requests simultaneously, executing elegant solutions for integration, feature, metric and systems-level enhancements. You "get" enterprise-level architecture quickly, know the right questions to ask and can start building with the engineering team with minimal oversight. In a phrase, you are plug and play.

What you'll be doing:

  • Building the infrastructure for performance optimization, technological independence, video scaling and other product improvements
  • Working with developers and our head of backend development to build resilient and responsive cross-platform solutions
  • Developing and designing APIs and MySQL queries for 3rd-party integrations, big data information processing, and the seamless coordination of our product functionality across multiple platforms, including app, web and tv.

What you bring to the table:

  • 7+ years of software engineering experience with a proven development record in PHP7, OOP and MVC
  • 7+ years of MySQL experience - you are a master at writing scalable code as well as envisioning new frameworks and configurations to run queries with high volume data
  • Experience with any popular framework like Laravel, Symfony, Phalcon or Yii
  • Experience with High Load / Big Data and RESTful API

Who you'll be working with:

At Locals, you will be working directly with our tech lead as well as collaborating with the Exec team, all of who are dedicated to build the tools that empower creators to be independent.
