With our growing customer base and our expansion into new markets and use cases, we have more to build than ever at Affinity as we execute on our vision to put relationship intelligence at every professional's fingertips.

As a Senior Platform Engineer, you'll have the opportunity to help build the systems that allow our teams to move faster and focus on building features our customers love. You'll define the future of core pieces of our entire stack across areas like library design, authentication, observability, standards and tooling. From making front end iteration faster to building services and tools to make developing APIs easier and more reliable to making self-service infrastructure available to teams, you'll hone your skills across multiple domains while helping to drive forward the Affinity product and vision.

In this role, you will:

  • Own the development experience and productivity of our engineering team
  • Collaborate with world-class engineering, product, and design teams--you'll have the opportunity to learn from a wide variety of experiences and, of course, to share your own
  • Grow your expertise and fluency with core pieces of technology across the full application stack


Don’t meet every single requirement? Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every qualification. At Affinity, we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive, and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role, but your past experience doesn’t perfectly align with the qualifications above, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.

  • You have experience building APIs that are easy to use, intuitive, self documenting and easy to maintain
  • You have experience building tools to improve developer productivity at all parts of the stack. You understand ways to make development experience better and application maintenance easier, and excel in working closely with key product and delivery stakeholders to design solutions or migrate to new standards
  • You have experience with modern front-end build systems like webpack, as well as experience with modern OOP practices commonly employed in languages like TypeScript, Ruby, and .Net.
  • You understand the testing pyramid and have extensive experience writing functional, unit, integration and infrastructure tests, utilizing and promoting industry best practices for testing.
  • You have a strong understanding of distributed systems and infrastructure and how modern applications are deployed to cloud providers using technologies like Terraform, Docker, Kustomize and helm
  • You've helped your teams to solve high-scale challenges, to integrate systems, or to harden your product’s security posture
  • You're excited to work collaboratively within engineering and as part of a cross functional team

Our data platform utilizes Databricks, Spark, and AWS technologies such as SageMaker.
