Engineering at Sesame
Want to help? Join our team! We are growing and looking for an experienced engineer focused on service development rather than front end development, but comfortable in both worlds. Our system is currently React and (Javascript and) Typescript on the front end and Java on the back end. We are completing migration of the front end away from Javascript to Typescript, and adding and migrating more services to Typescript on the backend.
