Remote Software Engineer

ConvertKit - permanent

United States

26 Nov

Open to all applicants globally!

You will be joining a team of engineers to help build many of the user facing features of our product. You'll spend a lot of time writing JavaScript, but own entire features, which means you're comfortable working with or learning Ruby on Rails. Some of your projects might be more Ruby than JavaScript, but it's okay if you need some extra time to ramp up with Ruby. You'll collaborate with designers, product managers, and other engineers in an autonomous and supportive environment. Here are a few examples of projects that the team you'll be joining has worked on recently:

  • Changing our React landing page editor to support adding and editing multiple pages
  • Rewriting our sequence editor to support our new React based email editor
  • Upgrading our JavaScript build process to load less on every page
  • Adding more features to our landing page builder to enable creators to create unique designs

Experience

We're looking for an experienced developer that doesn't mind learning new things and working with different technologies. You have extensive JavaScript experience building UIs, as well as experience working in server side technologies. This is a remote role, so you enjoy working from wherever you do your best work. Finally, you believe in our mission to help creators earn a living online and embody our values as a creator yourself.

Requirements

  • Strong JavaScript experience
  • Experience building applications using React
  • Experience in backend technologies, and a willingness to learn and work with Ruby on Rails

ConvertKit is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity in all of its forms and we hire the best person for each role, no matter your personal background. Research tells us that applicants who are female or non-binary, as well as applicants who are people of color, are less likely to apply for roles they do not feel 100% qualified for.

We encourage every person who is interested to apply. We’re imperfect communicators, so think of our job postings as the starting point for discussion rather than proof that you shouldn’t apply. Take the leap - you never know, you might just be the perfect person for one of our open roles, even if you don’t match 100% of the job description.

Salary and Perks

  • 3 weeks paid vacation, 8 paid holidays, and 1 week of sick leave per year. Moves to 4 weeks paid vacation after 1 year.
  • The team gathers twice a year in-person for fantastic team retreats.
  • Excellent Health benefits.
