Senior Backend Engineer, API Platform
Singapore, Central Singapore, SingaporeEngineering
Nice to meet you, We are Ascenda
Ascenda solutions make loyalty simple for financial institutions globally. Previously, these companies had to endure complex patchworks of third-party systems, mediocre user experiences, and 18-month implementation projects to deploy a competitive rewards program. We turn things upside down with loyalty solutions rooted in beautiful design, exceptional customer value, and rapid implementation.
Our API Platform sits at the heart of a mildly distributed system, and plays a role in most of the interactions in our loyalty product. The multi-tenant and distributed nature of our system leads to an interesting and unique set of technical challenges which to date have only been partially solved. This is where you come in.
As a Senior Engineer on the API Platform team, you will:
- Have the opportunity to solve complex technical problems in a collaborative team environment.
- Play a key role in day-to-day work such as sprint planning, pair programming, and code reviews.
- Map complex business requirements onto existing systems, and evolve them to support new functionality.
- Maintain high standards of code quality.
- Work closely with your team lead to define and execute on the technical roadmap.
- Handle production incidents and improve operational processes, monitoring, and tooling to minimize their impact.
- Have the opportunity to solve problems across multiple areas, such as performance, internationalization, multi-tenancy & scalability.
You’re a good fit if:
You have deep experience with Ruby and Rails, ideally at least 5 years.
You have a strong technical background, especially in designing multi-tenant applications with a strong focus on Object Oriented Programming.
You have a thorough understanding of API development and concepts such as REST.
You have had some exposure to distributed systems and understand some of the challenges they present.
You are self-motivated and function well in situations with high levels of ambiguity.
You enjoy working in a dynamic and cross-functional environment.

- Competitive salary & benefits
- Travel perks
- Flexible working arrangement from home office
