About Prokeep

Prokeep is a software company that has developed a messaging platform for the $100+ billion wholesale distribution market (i.e. plumbing, electrical, HVAC, etc). We are post product, post revenue, and growing fast in the US and Canada. Our team is small, nimble, and devoted to making our customers' lives easier with simple to use technology. We envision a world where distributors using our tools are more efficient and able to build stronger relationships with their customers.

Responsibilities

We are looking for a dedicated junior systems engineer who is excited to make significant contributions to our integrated stack, data layer, and overall performance, security, and reliability. You will be primarily focused on building out our SOC 2 compliance stack including SSO, MFA, and data security, as well as cloud engineering. We are a small and highly collaborative team, so from time to time you may also take a diversion into other adjacent tech realms. You don’t have to be an expert with all the tools in our stack, but an interest in working on projects at all levels of the stack will be helpful as we expand the breadth of our platform. You should have strong opinions about tools and architecture, but should also be able to explain those opinions persuasively, not abrasively. You should take pride in writing performant, logically structured, readable code, but also be pragmatic enough to realize that sometimes shipped projects or systems are better than perfect projects or systems. Some training will be provided.
