As a platform engineer, you will be part of the small team behind Hustle's integrations, API's, and data pipelines. These products are built in JavaScript, NodeJs and React, and Kotlin for Kafka data pipelines. This enables you to be as full-stack as you want to be -- we will never box you in or out. Hustle’s peer-to-peer messaging platform builds meaningful human relationships, not spam or advertising. The right candidate will be excited to join a small, but powerful engineering team in a fast-growing company that is reimagining how the world communicates -- and is energized to be empowering customers like Human Rights Campaign, Planned Parenthood, and the Democratic Party to build relationships that make the world a better place.
