Your Role at Bolt

We are witnessing a massive shift of consumer presence from offline to online. With it, there is a need for technologies that enable online businesses to thrive. Bolt is at the center of this universe leading the next generation of e-commerce, having created a best-in-class buying experience from checkout to fraud detection, payments, and more. With our help, retailers can successfully compete with the online retail giants that have the means to invest in technology. 

Bolt has 4 product engineering teams that are constantly working toward building new features. The application infrastructure team’s goal is to support these teams to be able to move fast and have the resources they need. The fun part of being on this team is having to touch every part of the stack right from CI / CD pipelines, database management, deploy processes all the way to building a distributed jobs framework for async tasks. Every engineer on this team gets to shape the engineering and technology at Bolt in a fundamental way. Some of the things the team is looking at right now is introducing a NoSQL database, re-writing our asset deploy pipeline making better use of CloudFront’s edge lambdas.
