The Platform for all things GIF - need we say more?

Role overview

We’ve built the world’s largest animated GIF search engine and redefined how people search, discover, create, and share GIFs. Since our start we’ve developed an all-in-one GIF platform with multiple product offerings, touching millions of users per day and serving billions of GIFs per month.

About the Role

We’re looking for an experienced engineer who is passionate about designing, creating and delivering highly scalable distributed services to join our platform team. The GIPHY platform is the core infrastructure that powers both internal and external products including Giphy.com, GIPHY mobile apps, several major, native Social Media integrations, thousands of indie developer apps, our own API and more. Our public API services billions of requests and traffics many petabytes of media per month.

You'll be joining a wildly creative, fun and talented group of individuals who are passionate about building out the future of GIFs. We have big dreams and goals for 2018 and are looking for like-minded, skilled people to join us!

What you'll do

  • Design and develop available, performant services enabling millions of people to search for and create GIFs via public-facing APIs using Scala and its reactive platform.
  • Contribute to processes of development and deployment as GIPHY migrates it's platform to a Scala-based microservices architecture.
  • Research and prototype new technologies to be introduced into our systems and infrastructure.
  • Collaborate with Product and Business Development to realize new products and features.

Basic Qualifications

  • BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science or equivalent work experience (5+ years)
  • 3+ years of relevant industry experience
  • Experience with the JVM and the Scala ecosystem (Akka, Akka-HTTP, Slick and/or other Scala libraries)
  • Experience working with high scale systems
  • Experience with low latency systems - understanding how network calls, tcp sockets, and data center locations affect API latency
  • Familiarity with *nix and its tooling
  • Sense of humor and love of GIFs

Bonus Qualifications

  • Familiarity with Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Experience designing RESTful APIs
  • Start-up experience
  • 50-249

GIPHY is the world’s largest place to search, discover, and create all the GIFs. We’re the leading brand in GIFs and the format. We act as a search engine for people to find content. Our API powers GIF distribution across platforms like iMessage, Facebook, Twitter, Tinder, Slack, WhatsApp and many more. GIPHY serves 1B GIFS to 100M people every day. We built the way people talk in GIFs. We want the world to speak visually on top of text. via GIPHY
