Judo is searching for a Senior Full Stack React/Node JS developer to join us for this exciting stage in our growth.

About Judo:

Judo makes software that helps our customers build better mobile experiences for their users. We empower non-developers to create fully native, engaging app UI without the traditional resource requirements.

Our name derives from the martial art, a key principle of which is “maximum efficiency with minimal effort”. This concept is captured in our mission to enable product teams to build faster and iterate more frequently.

We have two products in the market, the first (Judo) is a visual build tool for SwiftUI that empowers designers to create full functional UI, and to collaborate with developers on a shared canvas.

Our second product is a sports-first mobile engagement platform that enables teams and leagues to create brilliant fan experiences in their apps and ensure they get to the right fan at the right time.

We’re backed by the same group that funded Shippabo, Airtable, LaunchKit and more (TenOneTen and Freestyle VC), a top U.S. accelerator as well as several prominent angel investors. We’ve built a solid reputation with several major sports franchises as clients, and are now charting new territory as we explore the multitude of other industries who could benefit from incorporating Judo into their native app workflows.

About the role:

Our next Full Stack developer will work closely with our CTO to build out the new web app for our fan engagement platform.

There are two pillars to this platform:

  • A self-serve native UI builder that makes it easy for leading sports teams to create fan experiences and monetize their apps.
  • A sports-first mobile marketing automation solution that integrates into the leading sports ecosystem products, enabling teams to trigger fan first campaigns at the right time to the right fan.

While building the web app for this platform, you will:

  • Build at scale: we have more than 20M active devices that are reporting ~ 2,000 req/s to our servers every day and at peak 5,000 req/s.
  • Develop data pipelines with Typescript & NodeJS on Kafka. Ingest and parse events sent from our SDK to build analytic dashboards and provide insights to our clients.
  • Enhance and extend our backend reactive service oriented framework on top of Kafka. Our backend is architectured in a service oriented pattern, each service shares data and updates to other services using Kafka as the bridge.
  • Provide essential feedback through the development and design process and help shape a reusable and extensible frontend system using Tailwind.
  • Be responsible for implementing any GraphQL calls necessary to facilitate the design with Apollo. This can include modifying or adding new database schemas in PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Elasticsearch, integrating with third party vendors likes Twillio, or optimizing existing code to improve performance of queries.
