Job Description

We are looking for experienced software engineers who are excited about the leading our professional services team as we accelerate our business.

As a member of the team, you will help us analyze integrations with new clients, review data models for ETL processing into our platform, developing custom front end and back end functionality to enable custom requirements, acting as a lead for more junior engineers to ensure solution correctness and providing mentorship. You will be customer facing to field questions that may rise during the integration process. In addition, develop the APIs, services, and infrastructure that powers our best-in-class studio management software and customer-facing products. You will work closely with a smart and dedicated team to solve challenging problems across a variety of domains, including e-commerce, internationalization, reporting, and many more.

Some of the other responsibilities you’ll have include:

  • Contributing clean, performant code

  • Designing, building, and maintaining reliable public-facing APIs

  • Collaborating closely with product stakeholders, designers, and your fellow engineers to deliver features that support our business objectives

  • Refactoring and optimizing code in line with existing and emergent best practices

  • Proactively writing tests and documentation to ensure the health and maintainability of shipped code

  • Experience with Agile software development methodologies.

  • Working with technologies and frameworks similar to those we use most often. Our stack includes Python, Django, DRF, Javascript, Ember.js, and React. While direct experience with these technologies is certainly an asset, related experience and an eagerness to learn are great too!

  • Communicating clearly and kindly with technical and non-technical colleagues.
