Role Responsibilities

Catylist is a fully remote team at Moody’s Analytics focused on organizing the world’s commercial real estate data. We use this information to help all kinds of people make better decisions, whether that means finding the perfect office space or understanding the potential impacts of climate change on their manufacturing facility or shopping center. We’re always looking for interesting ways to connect data and solve real-life problems.

  • Our team includes about a dozen full-stack developers.
  • We care about culture, and many of us have worked together for over a decade.
  • We use JavaScript (ReactJS) on the front-end and Java on the back-end.
  • We use a microservices architecture and practice continuous integration.
  • We host everything from AWS and believe in infrastructure-as-code.
  • We're not dogmatic about our tools/technologies – we use whatever best suits the task at hand.
  • We communicate mainly via GitLab, Slack, and Zoom, but try to get everybody together in person a couple times a year (retreats & conferences).

We have big goals planned for the coming years and could really use your help.

Role / Responsibilities

We’re looking for a talented developer who’s at home in the codebase. As a senior engineer, you’ll have the flexibility to contribute on both the front-end and back-end all across the stack:

  • Designing and implementing frameworks and re-usable software components.
  • Owning projects from start to finish, collaborating with others on the team and pushing code daily.
  • Developing standards and conventions, mentoring other developers and reviewing code.
  • Finding and fixing inefficiencies in code or process and working to make the team better every day.


  • This isn’t your first rodeo – you have significant (7+ years) production experience building scalable web applications and APIs hosted in a Cloud environment.
  • You have a complicated relationship with JavaScript, loving the good parts and understanding the bad. You might not label yourself as an expert, but others would.
  • You have solid experience with ReactJS, including functional components and hooks.
  • You have solid experience writing enterprise-level application back-ends or APIs in an object-oriented language like Java.
  • You have a practical understanding of both the benefits and pitfalls of a microservices architecture.
  • You’re a quick study, stay up with the latest-and-greatest ideas, and enjoy learning new things.
  • You believe in the mantra: "strong opinions, weakly held".
  • You’re an excellent communicator (with and without emoji).
  • You value stability, work/life balance, group decision-making, and working with people that are good-natured, open-minded, interesting, hard-working, and self-motivated.
  • You’re looking for a family to join for the long term, not a stepping stone toward another gig.
