Merit believes that truth and trust can change the world. Our platform helps organizations create, send and verify licenses, credentials and other people-based statements of truth, known as merits. Members in turn benefit by taking control of their valuable personal information while shaping their future based on the opportunities that they are uniquely qualified for.
We’re looking to hire an experienced Chief Architect to join our exceptionally talented and rapidly growing engineering team. As the Chief Architect, you will own and be responsible for the end-to-end architecture of Merit’s entire platform – including web & mobile apps, services, APIs, and 3rd-party integrations. You will collaborate with product owners, lead design reviews, make architecture discussions, establish architecture standards & best practices, and foster a culture of constant innovation. You will also “get out of the building” to learn about emerging technologies from peer groups & evaluate them for Merit’s needs, and evangelize Merit’s technology & practices.
Merit’s web apps are built using React and TypeScript. Our mobile apps are built using React Native and TypeScript. Our backend is implemented mostly in Scala, and some in NodeJS. We use GraphQL to communicate between our apps and backend. We also built REST APIs for our 3rd party developers. We run on Google Cloud Platform and use Google Cloud Datastore, Pub/Sub, Redis, Elasticsearch, Kubernetes and Docker.
At Merit, we don’t just accept difference—we celebrate, support, and value it for the innate benefit of our employees, the competitive advantage of our products, and the strength of the communities we are a part of. Merit is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or veteran status. We will do our best to accommodate any disabilities or special needs you may have.
