About Atellio

Atellio is SaaS platform built for companies to bring the creative production in-house.

As brands move away from using agencies for the growing requirement of content, we’ve built the first tool dedicated to helping in-house producers and art directors manage everything from their freelancers and talent, through to calendars, budget reconciliation and call-sheets.

Atellio is backed by leaders in the creative industry like ustwo and the ECD of Wieden & Kennedy. Having been in stealth mode for the last year, Atellio is already powering the photo and film studios of the leading brands in streetwear, fashion and retail. They’re all under NDA, so you know they’re good.

We are growing and now looking for a senior backend JavaScript engineer to take the responsibility off the CEO and to take full ownership and direction of the backend codebase.

Job requirements

Here's a summary of who we're looking for:

You’re on the Javascript bandwagon, having accumulated an expert knowledge of Node.js. You alone can whip up full API’s on command, equipped with a strong workflow to create and deploy scalable and testable code. You can comfortably navigate across AWS and spin up services depending on project requirements.

You've worked within enterprise class web applications and you're now ready to step up and take on more ownership. You're eager to direct and look after the backend infrastructure of a web app, making sure everything is clean, tested, usable, and otherwise shipshape. You're more than happy to crack on building new features, using your own initiative, and architecting your code in a way that will make life easier down the line. While your ideal is to prioritise doing things properly, you're also prepared to roll your sleeves up and get stuff done to a deadline when it's needed.

It's a great time to join Atellio: we've built the main bulk of our app, and we're now split between building out new features, and making what we've built even better. We love doing things properly, and we're pretty light on our feet - so you'll be able to have a big say in how we do things going forward. You'll have a great codebase to play with, and the opportunity to decide how to make it amazing. Come join us!

Key requirements:

- 4+ years Node.js experience

- Strong experience with AWS / Elastic Beanstalk

- Familiar with scaling and testing code

- Good code habits

- Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

- Driven, self-motivated, enthusiastic and with a “can do” attitude

Bonus Requirements:

- Experience in development operations

- You've worked with WebSockets before, and have a good sense of what's good or bad practice

- You're familiar with frontend development as well, and you're more than happy to just dip in and add a new button here and there when you need it

- You have a keen eye for spotting obscure pop culture references in our documentation, and are a dab hand at sneaking in your own
