SDK Backend Engineer

Lisbon, Portugal · Engineering


We’re looking for talented software engineers to join our SDK team. They need a strong experience building services, but who also have an interest in leveraging those services in front end apps for a better user experience.

You'll join a group of smart, friendly and ambitious engineers, designers and researchers who take pride in software we ship and hold ourselves to high standards in an industry where privacy, security and reliability are crucial.

Some of the technical challenges of building our SDKs includes:

  1. Building fast image quality validations (e.g. glare, blur, etc), which can be deployed in many platforms, from mobiles to services
  2. Connecting devices in real time to allow for smooth switching between them
  3. Allowing for high volume analytics, yet keeping private information out of the hands of vendors
  4. Allowing A/B testing on code which is built by us, but deployed by others
