Hiring Sr. Neo4j + Apollo Server Engineer – L.A./remote-first (US only)

Location: Remote (project is based in Los Angeles)

Description: “Social venture,” “triple bottom line,” “sense of mission” – have you ever used these phrases to describe your ideal job? Consider becoming a part of our mission-driven startup, which is bringing Silicon-Valley methods to a highly innovative new approach to homelessness services.

At Citizentric we believe in using technology to empower the innovators who are already doing great work in the world. We are collaborating with an innovative nonprofit agency, LA Family Housing, on AROYO (A Room Of Your Own), a web app that enables case workers at nonprofit agencies to better help individuals experiencing homelessness achieve housing stability.

We’re seeking a senior back-end developer to expand our delivery capacity and shore up our platform for scale. Over the next 4-6 months we will be enabling our platform to handle broader use cases and roll out to multiple counties. The right person will bring a deep understanding of Neo4j and Apollo Server to the team in order to relieve bottlenecks and make the whole application more robust, reliable and secure.

If this interests you, we want to hear from you!

  • Contribute your graph database expertise to technical designs, architecture and planning
  • Enhance infrastructure, integration and deployment pipelines, and automated testing
  • Focus on getting working software into users’ hands and keeping it working
  • Collaborate on estimation of work to help drive prioritization decisions

  • Ability to work autonomously while being collaborative
