The Lua Engineering department is a small team that makes a big impact. We rapidly iterate and participate in all aspects of the product from helping design features, triaging/troubleshooting issues, to code reviewing and mentoring. We have a strong commitment to quality and understand that security, usability, and reliability are critical to the products we build. We are looking for a flexible, smart, and enthusiastic developer to help get us to our next level of growth. You don’t necessarily need to be familiar with our current stack; our main priority is to find strong and flexible team members who can learn as they go and help out where they are needed the most.
The API Engineer will work with the rest of our backend team to build features, design and implement API methods, and improve the performance and reliability of our systems as we scale our product and organization. You are responsible for the server-side of Lua using Ruby/Rails, MySQL, Elixir/Phoenix, and GraphQL. In a typical week, an application engineer might develop new features with a cross-functional team of product managers, designers, as well as the engineers on the Web, iOS, and Android platforms.
Lua is a HIPAA compliant, cross-platform messaging application built for healthcare organizations to communicate securely, maximize productivity, and accelerate workflow for better care coordination. Lua’s core is built in Ruby/Rails and runs on AWS (Amazon Web Services), with many of our performance-sensitive parts moving to a more modern Elixir/Phoenix stack. We have client apps running on Android, iOS, Web, and Windows & Mac desktops so that our customers can access Lua from anywhere.

Our spacious office is conveniently located a few steps from Union Square. Other benefits include open PTO, medical/dental, 401K, weekly Engineering lunch & learn, team outings, and a true work/life balance.
