Full Stack Software Engineer

Role Description

As their fourth full stack software developer you will help build all parts of thier growing product to help build the future of work. You’ll be working within a cross-functional team to contribute to both the design and build of the overall product.

Below are the primary technologies you’ll work with, but we value talent and experience over specific skills.

  • Typescript Serverless API’s
  • AWS Serverless infrastructure
  • Kinesis, SNS, and Lambda Eventing
  • Improve our CI/CD systems

Who They’re Looking For

  • You focus on shipping software that matters to your users. That focus comes from a deep desire to understand user problems and provide magical solutions to them.
  • You understand one of the most critical skills in software development is communication. You’re excited about cross functional teams and believe your technical perspective combined with your user empathy provides a unique perspective to user problems.
  • You’ve experimented with and survived many different types of development and project methodologies, which has left you with a healthy appreciation for what works from the so-called “agile” methodologies and those that came before (and after) them.
  • You are humble enough to adapt to your frameworks, technologies and constraints to provide users with a magical experience.
  • You know how to balance pragmatic technology choices with innovation.
  • You are proficient with a number of programming languages, operating systems, and architectures. You probably have one of each you prefer right now, but you’re neither dogmatic nor myopic in your focus on it.
  • You are curious enough to discover how or why something works when you don’t know.
  • You have pieced together changing feature specifications from whiteboard sessions, partial UI designs, and conversations to produce solutions to user problems that are still evolving.

By the way, here’s what they look for in assessing fit for their team:

Curiosity: a growth mindset, a hunger to learn and expand horizons, a genuine interest in the world.

Capability: your talent and experience allows you pick up new skills quickly. You enjoy wading into new situations, frameworks and languages.

Humility: complete lack of arrogance and skilled at holding yourself accountable. High levels of self-awareness, always wanting to improve, most comfortable in a feedback culture. A true mix of ambition and compassion.

Execution experience: a focus on disciplined execution. Not just a innovator, not starting things but never ending them, but rather someone who knows how to get a job done and has a proven track record of top quality execution.

Owner mindset: you work with an ownership mindset and proactivity. You connect the dots and don’t stop till they’ve reached their overall objectives.
