Posted: a year ago

Fans love Midnite because of all the epic ways to win. Unlike the alternatives, Midnite doesn’t feel like a website built 20 years ago. Our customers use our world-class sports, esports, and game wagering platform to interact with the games they care about. As a Senior Backend Engineer in the Engineering department, you will take ownership of all backend development working in a close knit team of experts in design, frontend development and trading.

Our tech stack is implemented in Python, is hosted on AWS and includes Flask, Socket.IO, PostgreSQL, Redis, Elasticsearch, SQS and Ansible. All our code is linted, tested and automatically deployed to our test environment. We ship to production multiple times per week. Knowledge in the above technologies is preferred but not necessary, willingness to get up to speed, being a great problem solver and upholding high engineering standards is what is important to us.

You will:

  • Write robust, maintainable, testable code in a timely manner (we move very fast!).
  • Ensure technical architecture is consistent with our roadmap.
  • Uphold high engineering standards and bring consistency to the codebase and processes you will encounter.
  • Provide mentorship to your colleagues.
  • Help us hire great software engineers.


  • 5 or more years experience in working with web based applications at pace.
  • Worked with top in class team and experience scaling products.
  • Familiar with startup culture.

Bonus Points:

  • Ideally you'd also be an Esports fan!
  • Experience building data pipelines.
  • Solid experience in distributed systems


  • A ground-floor role in which you’ll be integral to our company culture and help shape the direction. You’ll be part of a growing community of Midnite employees, partners, investors, and advisors, all focused on our common goal. We love to do things together with regular company-wide meetups, games night, and team retreats.
  • Grab a piece of the pie. We offer competitive equity packages, from performance-based stock grants to Employee Stock Purchase Plans that allow teammates across the globe to feel like they own the place.
  • Comprehensive Health insurance via Vitality so you can stay healthy.
  • 25+ paid holidays and use-what-you-need sick days.
  • Paid maternity, paternity, and adoption leave.
  • Flexible long-term work options (remote and hybrid).
  • Generous stipends for headphones and your remote work setup.

Our team combines years of experience building world-class betting technology with deep esports and sports domain expertise. We are as intentional about building a durable company and inclusive culture as we are about perfecting our product, and are serious about flexible work and professional development.
