Meet GetUpside

GetUpside is a digital platform that connects millions of users with tens of thousands of gas stations, restaurants, and grocery stores nationwide.

We know ourselves as community-builders. When people and businesses are better off, communities grow stronger.

Meet GetUpside Engineering

The Engineering team at GetUpside is a close-knit group of hardworking, fast-learning individuals that believes in our mission to help communities thrive. We believe in a data-driven approach to decision-making and an encouraging culture that emphasizes learning from our mistakes. We debate and deliberate on the best ideas to improve our tech stack, and strive for an inclusive atmosphere that champions the psychological wellness of all of our teammates.

About the Job

GetUpside is growing our Engineering Productivity team! This team is focused on making the software development life cycle at GetUpside as smooth as possible. To this end, we develop infrastructure, tools and processes that let teams test, release, and manage their software artifacts more easily.

In this role, you will be one of the foundational members of our team. Initially, you’ll be responsible for designing and implementing tools and infra to make software testing easier for engineers - over time, we expect to also solve engineering challenges in release management, monitoring, and alerting. This is a great opportunity for an engineer looking to work with a high level of autonomy and with a wide variety of technologies.

Our technology stack:

  • AWS to run our microservices in a message-oriented-architecture
  • Java 8 / Dropwizard / 12-factor apps
  • Python 3 / Serverless AWS Lambdas
  • MySQL & DynamoDB
  • S3 / Snowflake / Looker
  • Jenkins / Github / Terraform

What Will You Do?

  • Collaborate with the engineering organization to identify gaps in how we test and release.
  • Develop features enabling engineers to efficiently test and monitor the health of the GetUpside platform.
  • Automate and improve how we run Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery.
  • Develop new standards and processes for engineers to more easily test and monitor software artifacts.
  • Work with engineering teams to integrate Engineering Productivity-developed tools and infrastructure into the standard developer workflow.
  • Identify, design, lead and/or participate in anything and everything that needs to get done.

What You Bring:

  • You have 5+ years of professional experience in software development.
  • You have strong communication skills, especially with other technical stakeholders.
  • You have previous experience building testing tools and frameworks.
  • You have hands-on experience with Java and Python, as well as familiarity with AWS, Docker, and Kubernetes.
  • You demonstrate the ability to bring code from whiteboard to running in production.
  • You are passionate about working in a dynamic and growing startup environment with a tight-knit, supportive engineering team that strives to make work interesting, challenging, and fun.
  • You have a constant desire for learning and self-improvement.
  • Nice to Have: Previous experience with Jenkins and developing in Groovy.
  • Nice to Have: Experience with iOS and Android mobile application testing using open-source and/or commercial automation suites.

The Fine Print:

  • GetUpside employees are currently working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Once it's safe to return to the office, this role will sit full-time at our downtown D.C. headquarters.
