  • Design, development, and operation of tools to support the customer support team and planning-related work
  • Design, development, and operation of various microservices making up the Mercari API
  • Lead the team's development

Requirements

  • Strong understanding of the company mission and values
  • A minimum of 5 years backend software development, or equivalent, experience
  • Experience with design, development, and operation of backend APIs using Go
  • Knowledge of and experience with software test including unit testing, functional testing, e2e testing
  • Knowledge of and experience with optimization of queries and data model design for the efficient usage of RDBMS and NoSQL databases.

Mercari is a marketplace app that makes it easy for people to safely sell and ship their things. Launched in 2013, the Mercari app has been downloaded over 100M times in Japan and the US. It's now among the largest peer-to-peer selling platforms globally. From fashion to toys, shoes to electronics and beyond, Mercari's mission is to create value in a global marketplace where anyone can buy and sell. Though we have over 1,800 employees, we still have a startup culture, where we encourage people to come up with big, crazy ideas, and to not be afraid of failure. Because the company is rapidly growing, you can set your own path, and there is enough transparency to allow our members to do so. For instance, at our all-hands meetings, every single member is encouraged to ask questions directly to our executive team. We're a Japanese company, but are building a global work culture, and so we provide a great opportunity to experience a blend of Japanese and international culture. We relocate developers from around the world to join our team, and provide translation and interpretation to smooth communication between members. We want our employees to be able to give 100% both inside and outside of the office, and our benefits reflect this. These include providing language education, financial support for childcare, and allowing you to pursue paid side gigs outside of working with us.
