Backend Engineer (Postgres - Core)


About the team

Postgres - Core is a small team with a great impact on Miro's scaling and stability from the perspective of the database access layer. We do everything possible to ensure that our service is stable in the face of constant user growth. We support the mechanism of horizontal scaling, balance the load between the shards, and automate routine processes related to scaling. We are currently working on a mechanism for scaling data without the downtime and teach our application to be available without a single data server and be ready if it returns. We are thinking of RDS and how to work with DB from microservices. This is a place where system tasks at the database access level are being done.
