Yalo

Hi! This is Yalo! We are on a mission to bring conversational commerce to the world...

Remember how it used to be to interact with businesses that knew and understood you, that could recommend exactly what you needed, and that with a simple message could get you what you wanted??? Yep... neither do we. That is why at Yalo we are marrying the scale of digital commerce with the personalization and simplicity of conversations to help companies delight their users.

We know that traditional SAAS companies focus on first world problems... we don't! Having started in Latin America, our roots are in Emerging Markets and therefore we care about bringing amazing experiences to a population that traditionally has been underserved, such as the small shop owner in Brazil that is ordering online for the first time.

What we are looking for?

As a Backend Software Engineer at Yalo, you will use cutting-edge technology to build intelligent and scalable products for our newest product Yalo Pago. You will be responsible for delivering high-quality applications & products.

Job Requirements (Must have)

  • Experience as a Back-end Engineer or similar role
  • Experience working with microservice architectures
  • Proficiency with Typescript (Node.js)
  • Ability to use cloud services (AWS or GCP)
  • Strong experience with NoSQL databases (MongoDB)
  • Experience in event-driven APIs
  • Experience working with Agile Methodologies & Continuous Delivery (CD)
  • Experience in Backend Testing (Unit test, Integration test and E2E test)

Nice to have:

  • Fullstack Experience
  • Experience working with content management systems

What do we offer?

  • Unlimited PTO policy
  • Competitive rewards on the market range
  • Remote working is available (-+3 hours CT)
  • Flexible time (driven by results)
  • Start-up environment
  • International teamwork
  • You and nothing else limit your career here

We keep it simple,

We make it happen,

We strive for excellence.
