A week in the life of Velotio's Backend Engineers
As a Backend Engineer, your key responsibilities will be to design & build highly scalable, high-performance, responsive web applications. You will be working closely with designers, front-end engineers, founders, and product managers to understand the requirements and suggest the right frameworks and algorithms if required.
The backend team kicks off their week with a short meeting to assess last week’s progress. The goal is to understand what has been accomplished, what needs to be done, and what problems the team is facing. The outcome of the meeting is to have a concrete plan that everyone can execute.
Your typical week would involve developing new APIs, maintaining and improving existing ones, and conducting dev tests. You will also need to collaborate on design documents, translate requirements, designs, and wireframes into high-quality code, and contribute to architectural discussions.
You might need to attend daily sync-ups with your team and a couple of meetings with clients to share updates and raise/resolve blockers. You would have the flexibility to manage your work hours to sync up with your team and clients and complete your deliverables comfortably.
Aside from working on projects, you can also work on internal tasks, such as designing documents, sharing knowledge via our tech talks, engineering blogs, and Velotio wiki, and helping with interviews.
