    • Familiarity with email formats or intricate details of HTML parsing
  •  Web backend people are quite different from 'scale / infra backend'.
    • Web backend - you'll tend to see ruby/rails, python/django, node.js
    • "full-stack", worked at smaller companies / startups that are not big data oriented, e.g. food delivery service, task tracking software, mobile app
    • scale / infra backend - you'll tend to see more of: java, scala, kafka (queue), AWS / devops experience, managing a cluster of MySQL / other database, worked at big data startups (e.g. many ad tech startups), companies that have high throughput of data (e.g. segment), larger companies at scale (e.g. dropbox, facebook)
      • the experienced scale / infra backend profile tends to be a bit more specialized, yet we're also still small enough such that we want someone who can take on a breadth of different types of work - that's sorta what's making it challenging for us as well.
