We are hiring senior software development engineers to join our team - a foundational pillar of the direct to consumer group.

The ideal candidate has a track record of having built multiple high-performance, stable, scalable systems that have been successfully shipped to customers in production. Your work and your approach to work are exemplary: you drive best practices and set standards for your team. You are a key influencer in your team's strategy and contribute significantly to team planning. You show good judgement making trade-offs between immediate and long-term business needs. You are a collaborative leader that makes other engineers and team members around you more productive, by sharing your knowledge, and helping to tie-break key technical decisions. You provide mentoring to other engineers.

Responsibilities

  • You are experienced and capable of playing a leading role to design and develop major functional changes to existing software systems, or new ones, involving yourself and other engineers. You make good decisions when to build new and when to extend existing.
  • You provide guidance on design, coding, and operational best practices, and have a track-record of applying these best practices to software that you have worked on. You can propose and create best practices proactively where none exist.
  • You make high impact decisions driving how and what software gets built. Your decisions are often right, and you are persuasive in delivering your suggestions and ideas to your team.
  • You mentor junior engineers, overseeing their designs, code quality and code reviews, and integration into a team. Your success is judged as much on your own productivity as on the positive impact you have on engineers around you.

Requirements

  • 7+ years of experience with using JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3 and JSON.
  • Experience developing high-throughput backend services scaling to hundreds of millions of users in real-time and on-demand transactions in server-server and client-server applications.
