What​ ​You’ll​ ​Do

As a Senior Software Engineer, you’ll work closely with our CTO and head of engineering to build a world-class B2C platform. You’ll be focused on architecture and leading small agile pods, while continuing to develop the engineering talent in house. You will be hands-on in the technology stack to help evolve the platform, while managing priorities and timelines. Our API platform is a micro-service architecture built in Java/Spring behind a suite of web apps in Rails leveraging modern javascript frameworks like React. Our infrastructure is hosted in AWS natively and through Heroku’s PaaS offering for our UI, while leveraging Jenkins for our CI/CD pipeline.

Your​ ​objectives:

  • Become proficient in both our frontend and backend architectures
  • Implement design patterns for separation of concerns, code reusability, security and performance
  • Optimize platform for performance and maintenance
  • Focus on testability and automated processes
  • Execute and deliver on business and technical objectives
  • Drive innovation and architect new product features and functionality, while ensuring code quality
  • Understand the trade-offs between performance, scale, and business value
  • Collaborate closely with cross-functional teams to deliver great products and solve customer problems as needed
  • Maintain and improve agile processes collaboratively with the teams, and enable new development techniques or processes to reduce complexity, promote quality, and increase velocity

  • love solving problems
  • aren't afraid to wear many hats
  • aren't afraid to ask questions
  • are prepared to drink from a firehose, and still be thirsty
  • want to be challenged

  • can respect the eternal battle between business objectives and technical perfection
  • look at us as an opportunity, and not a job
