Join us and build backend services behind apps used by tens of millions of users.

You will work directly with our tech, design, strategy and PM teams, as well as our clients, to design, build and scale the micro-services behind Web, mobile and WeChat apps used by tens of millions of users in China and abroad.

We take pride in great engineering and invest in forward thinking technologies. We adopted Docker and React in 2013, Node.js in 2010, and we’ve also been very active contributors to the Script community in China, single-handedly organizing JSConf China since 2013.
