Software Development Engineer – I – Backend New | Apply Here!!

As the Supplier Growth & Marketplace team, we own the technology platform to enable suppliers to onboard, create listings for their products, and start selling them on Meesho’s marketplace. As Software Development Engineer – I, you’ll help us in our mission to enable Meesho to have the simplest seller experience across all e-commerce platforms💥

To enable this, we own 10+ microservices that interact with over 30 other services across Meesho’s technology stack. They support 150K+ TPS, 5K+ messages per second in our Kafka queues, 300M+ records in our data cluster, and 80M+ indexed entries in our Elasticsearch engine. We maintain these services with an uptime SLA of 99.995% and average API latency of <30ms. Several of our services, such as Catalog and Taxonomy are Tier 1 services that are used by almost every single engineering team across the company — after all, what good is an e-commerce platform without its product catalogue?

Our focus now is to rearchitect some of our core services to support our explosive expansion. Our services include cutting-edge technologies such as Apache Spark, HBase, and Clustered Redis. We continuously innovate on our platform by building and evangelising new in-house frameworks such as the micro-frontend architecture within the Meesho tech community.

We place special emphasis on the continuous growth of each team member, and we do this with regular 1-1s and open communication. We also know how to party as hard as we work!🎊 When we aren’t building unparalleled tech solutions, you can find us debating the plot points of our favourite books and games, or gossiping over chai☕

So, if a day filled with building impactful solutions with a fun team sounds appealing to you, come join us!
