Sr. Software Engineer - Remote

Babylist is looking for a Senior Software Engineer based in Sacramento to work remotely with our HQ team to build features, design and implement APIs, and improve the performance and reliability of our systems.

The Babylist engineering team is involved in growing and scaling all aspects of our business, including our consumer-facing web/iOS/Android apps, e-commerce operational infrastructure, content distribution platforms, data-warehousing and business intelligence platforms.

Our team values shipping software to our users quickly and frequently. Ship, measure, learn, repeat.
