Backend Engineer

Imbellus Overview

We are looking for exceptional people who share our mission: to reinvent how we measure human potential. At Imbellus, we build technology-enabled assessments that evaluate how people think instead of what they know.  We believe our society must prioritize developing minds that do what computers cannot. By changing assessments, we reorient the education system and employers to measure what matters.  

We love this challenge. We know that what has worked for decades in other contexts, might not work in ours. So we don’t default on expertise, instead we test every assumption with logic, each idea with reasoning, and all conclusions with “prove it.” We choose learning over ego so that our product and our people become the best.

You’ll probably enjoy working with us if

  • You’re a systems thinker; you’d rather debate the concept than argue the example; you prize logic and reason
  • You’re restless when not learning something new or stretching yourself
  • You understand that at a fast-growing startup, priorities may shift rapidly. You value exposure across functions and are prepared to work on whichever team or goal is most impactful.
  • You’re willing to open-mindedly challenge your own and others’ ideas, but also commit to the ultimate direction when the time comes
  • You feel accountable and hold others to a high standard

  • Build server architecture; author relationship between client, server and database

  • Work with big data: tracking, conditioning, translation, real-time processing and storage
  • Optimize systems' performance
