About the Role
Route's software engineers are developing next-generation technologies that change how millions of users see, share, and discover the world's products. We are looking for versatile engineers that bring a background in distributed systems design and development, large-scale data storage and processing systems, UI design, mobile, and much more
Route is an engineering company. We need our engineers to bring fresh ideas, be excited to take on new problems across the stack, and embrace the startup culture where we must be comfortable being uncomfortable at times. We aspire to hire the best people with a broad set of technical skills, representing a globally diverse audience, and bringing a diversity of ideas, perspectives, and cultures.
The Data Parsing team is responsible for the extraction of orders, items and shipments from our customers emails. This is the key to “Track everything in one place”. The challenges to extract this information are hard, but at the same time, they are very engaging. Engineers on this team are asked to solve complex problems and we look at them to tell us what we should build and how. So far, we have not only built a very modern stack, but also interfaces with other interesting services that include machine learning systems, scraping technologies and a series of very creative solutions. The reality is that we are not done yet, we need to take data parsing to the next level. We need to understand what is the most important data and how to represent it, as well as replicating the orders lifecycle in the Route app. We receive about 1000 emails per second and these emails hold information that gets processed under the highest security levels. Because of this, we constantly watch for making our systems more secure, performant and resilient. We, in short, look for talented engineers that are comfortable solving very hard problems in creative ways. These solutions will make a direct impact on our customers and the Company goals.
