Job Type


About Us
We started Laudable after sending and being sent one too many PDF case studies. With Laudable, companies can bottle what their customers are saying. We let marketing teams capture rich customer content on video, and then search, edit, and share it in seconds with our app.

We're backed by Y Combinator, Greycroft, Craft Ventures, and some amazing SaaS founders and angels.

Our team is fully remote (DC, Dallas, Philly, and Florida, today). We're looking for kind, ambitious, bright, and resourceful humans to join us.
We Want You To Know
You can be a great candidate even if you don't fit everything we describe below. You can also have important skills we haven't thought of. If that's you, please apply and tell us about yourself.

We're committed to diversity and building an equitable and inclusive work home for people of all backgrounds and experiences. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ+ people, veterans, and people with disabilities.
What we're looking for
As a Senior Backend Engineer you’ll be responsible for helping us add new features and improve our existing containerized Go applications as well as our serverless Python code. We use gRPC for some things now and will be continuing to increase our usage of it across platforms.

Example challenges you may work on:

Migrating functionality from a serverless Python environment to a containerized Go environment
Implementing simple to advanced video manipulation using FFMPEG or similar tools
Identify and compare outside solutions to custom-built solutions as we continue to build new features

The Role

Report directly to our CTO.
Continue maintaining existing Go and Python server-side code
Use your experience to help guide key decisions
Review current system design and architecture for opportunities to improve
Provide input on our feature roadmap including spotting “90/10” solutions and providing estimates.
Provide input as the team expands and new resources are added
Work in a fast-paced environment, putting first drafts into the world quickly and iterating based on metrics and analytics.


Have built and deployed several cloud based backend services using Go (bonus points for GCP)
Have worked with gRPC and Protobuf and are familiar with the differences between gRPC web and traditional gRPC.
Build efficient video applications using FFMPEG, GStreamer, and similar tools
Know your way around docker
Are comfortable with Linux and common utilities (grep, vim, etc)
Take a thoughtful approach to resource and memory management
Build services that are adaptable and maintainable


Fully remote team
Salary plus equity
Health and dental insurance
Flexible "take what you need" PTO
