Posted 1 year ago

The Tectus Dreamlab team pioneers the development of cutting-edge cross-platform apps in the engineering and construction sector. The flagship product, “Screening Eagle” Virtual Inspection Platform, is a holistic portal for asset monitoring, maintenance and inspection. The engineers are spread across iOS, web front-end, backend, AR/VR, 3D rendering, computer vision and machine learning.

You’ll be part of a small and highly talented team of people working end-to-end on the products. Our primary backend stack is Go, but it’s ok if you don’t have direct experience with it because we believe strongly that a good engineer can pick up any language in short time. We rapidly adopt emerging best-of-breed technologies, like Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, Terraform and React/Redux, to name few.


  • Take ownership of the backend tasks and work closely with the development teams;
  • Design and implement the business logic through strategic choice of data structure and algorithms;
  • Develop, test, document and deploy web APIs, batch jobs, webhooks, or integrations based on the business requirements;
  • Emphasise heavily on code testing and designing for testability;
  • Continuously document design decisions;
  • Adopt best dev-ops/tech-ops practices and make continuous automated testing, releases and deployments;
  • Offer mentorship to junior developers in the team.

Required Qualifications

  • BS in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience;
  • Strong programming skills, solid data structure and algorithm fundamentals;
  • At least 4 years of practical backend development for real-world products in any language/framework, preferably in Go;
  • Experience in SQL databases, writing schemas and designing high performance queries;
  • Experience in in-memory key-value database like Redis;
  • Deep technical understanding of scalability, resilience, high availability and the corresponding architecture, technologies and designs;
  • Experience with dev-ops/tech-ops, like Jenkins, Ansible, Terraform, to name a few;
  • Familiar with AWS services and related cloud technologies;
  • Experience in Containerization and Orchestration technologies like Docker and Kubernetes;
