Who We Are:
Vista is the industry leader in personalized physical and digital products. We empower over 17 million global customers to make an impression - and we're fueled by forward-thinking and innovative technology. We encourage our engineers to think like owners - to continue to act small as we grow. Every team builds their own roadmaps, and chooses the programming languages and technologies that suit them best. This helps us have a big impact at the enterprise level, while still feeling small and nimble.
Just last year, Vista generated $1.508B in revenue through customized print products, signage, apparel, websites and more.
Our e-commerce team, part of Vista's Order Management technology organization, builds and operates easy-to-use, global, accessible, modern checkout experiences, enabling teams across the company to take orders, optimize conversion, and create innovative product offerings to sell to Vista customers. Software development at Vista is fast-paced, with new code released continuously. We design, build and test our systems in a highly collaborative environment, encouraging feedback from all aspects of the business.
What You Will Do:
  • Be responsible for and own critical applications in our new ecommerce platform
  • Apply best practices for designing and maintaining solutions in a cloud-hosted micro-service environment
  • Create and execute test plans, create documentation, and develop and deploy our services
  • Leverage communication skills working with both internal and external partners
  • Keep your skills and our services up to date with modern security and operational best practices
  • Share on-call responsibilities with the team (via a rotation)

Your Qualifications:
  • Minimum of 3 years of experience with object-oriented programming (Java preferred, but other OO languages are ok)
  • Minimum of 2 years of experience developing client-server applications for the web (familiarity with JavaScript, JSON, OAuth, and browser technology required. Experience with ReactJS a plus)
  • Experience with highly transactional / highly available web services strongly desired
  • Experience deploying and operating applications in cloud services (AWS, GCP)

Nice to Have:
  • Industry experience in e-commerce is a plus
  • Ability to communicate with non-technical business partners and keep them informed

Why You'll Love Working Here:
Being at Vista means that you don't see work as just a building, a desk or a manufacturing floor. You see it as a chance to take a step forward in your career journey - and your life. We strive to give you everything you need to learn, grow, and succeed. Through innovation, collaboration, and perpetual exposure to what's next, we're always pushing boundaries and broadening our horizons. We embrace the chance to operate outside of our comfort zone to discover what we're capable of. Some might call that a challenge; we just call it another great day at work.
Remote First-Culture:
In 2020, Vista adopted a Remote-First operating model and culture. We heard from our team members that having the freedom, autonomy and trust in each other to work from home and, the ability to operate when they are most productive, empowers everyone to be their best and most brilliant self. Vista also provides collaboration spaces for team members to work physically together when it's safe to do so or believe in office working will deliver the best results. Currently we are enabled to hire remote team members in over 20 US States as well as several countries in Europe: Spain, Germany, UK, Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
About Us:
As an e-commerce powerhouse, Vista is a dynamic organization that maintains an exciting, entrepreneurial culture. With founder Robert Keane's return as CEO, we've renewed our focus on empowering and helping small businesses. To do this, we create customer value (and delight) through accessible, cutting-edge technology. We thrive on providing opportunities for exploration, collaboration, innovation and growth - for both our customers and our team.

An Insider's view of Vista

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Moving to a remote-first environment has really helped my work-life harmony, (having three children under the age of 8 can be a challenge in itself!) and as an award-winning company for flexible, remote work I was drawn to want to be a part of this.

Craig Fish

Channel Marketing Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

Vista is building an awesome new website using world class microservices architecture, working on many innovative and challenging projects and building a variety of data products. We are a very agile company and work in teams of data product owners, data scientists and data engineers. We are consistently improving ourselves and data products.

Dorina Alimadhi

Lead Data Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

I have recently taken up a new role in Brand Activations, having worked in Marketing for two years at Vista. Remote-first removed so much pressure from the process. Asynchronous and remote work has also helped me remain in work while having a baby. Without remote-first, I would have felt more pressure to leave work to be the primary caregiver.

Stephanie Tzortzis

Program Manager, Brand Activations

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

My favorite session of the week is the open office hours. On Thursdays, I set up a two hour meeting where I sit on our video call platform so my team can drop in and out whenever they want to is they need to have a chat with me.

Chris Goldson

Channel Marketing Manager

What is your vision for the company?

My vision as CDO is to transform Vista into one the world’s most iconic DnA-driven companies. We want all of Vistaprint to think of data like water: easily accessible, inexpensive and vital to our wellbeing. To turn this into a reality, we need to significantly grow our team massively over the next year.

Sebastian Klapdor

Chief Data Officer
