Backend Developer

Do you want to change the way the medical and maritime sectors handle data? Riverr is a fast growing tech startup based in Singapore that has developed an online trust management platform that solves the security and privacy challenges for exchanging protected health information. Our purpose is to provide the world with a solution that automates the way sensitive personal and business data is sourced and verified securely, thereby reducing costs and eliminating fraud.

Riverr is expanding the team and is therefore looking for a Backend Developer who has experience with some of the following;

  • Large scale systems
  • Security
  • Micro-services
  • Dev-ops

We are improving our system to be able to handle large amounts of concurrent users by focusing on our systems architecture, while maintaining our continuous release of new features for our users.

We have 3 applications that work together to create our current system. You will have a lot of deciding power on the future direction of the system. The job is not about refactoring what has already been made but about focusing on the future, creating new features, improving security and architecture. We have a long development plan full of exciting projects that touch everything from data analysis, blockchain, use of AI tools (OCR, facial recognition) and user recommendation tools.

The basis of our system:

  • JavaScript
  • Typescript
  • Node
  • Graphql
  • Mongo
  • Firebase
  • Google Cloud Platform
  • AWS
  • ElasticSearch

You will be working closely with our Co-founder and tech lead to create the best possible solution. We are hoping to find someone that is ready to take initiative and is confident enough to take the lead as backend developer.

We work distributed and value the benefits that come from flexible work hours and environments.

We have a flat organisation structure and trust everyone to self-organise their own work. We simplify our work processes as much as we can and understand distributed work culture and it’s challenges.
