We’re looking for engineers who like dynamic client/agency projects, and who write and maintain extensible, well-tested code that can be easily handed off to customers. You are a great fit because you are kind, enjoy dialog, and have spent 5+ years as a developer. You have a strong understanding of some of our technologies, and have prior experience working with legacy code bases. You care about the end user of the product as much as the developer who will work on your code next. You don’t need to have a degree, or to have worked with all of our technologies before. If you’re strong with rails, and not with react, that is ok.
ABOUT THE WORK
As a senior software engineer, you will help us lead projects for clients from Maersk to Lego to Sennheiser. You’ll also be helping to shape our daily process and work: test driving new features, pairing with clients to refactor code, helping our sales team to scope the work that is scheduled, collaborating with designers to produce mocks that are technically informed, mentoring junior engineers, and experimenting with new technologies.
