Software Engineer - Senior

The Company
Bonobos is (proudly) the largest born-on-the-Internet men's apparel company in the US and we're (humbly) seeking to reinvent the traditional eCommerce experience. Let's face it, not much has changed since Zappos introduced free two-way shipping and unlimited returns. 
The Job 
We're first and foremost an apparel company. But you'll quickly discover that not much happens here without touching Engineering. Whether helping our internal tools create a better system for our Customer Service Ninjas to assist our customers, improving the speed of our check-out flow or working on the front-end to create an even more eye-catching experience, Engineering helps drive the business here. And with plenty of projects coming down the pipeline, there are exciting challenges abound, like new technology for our Guideshops and on-going work with our Product team to figure out what works and what doesn't. 
We get to the best technical solutions by discussing complex questions as a team. We don’t hesitate to change our approach when we hear a better idea. All new code is reviewed by another set of eyes so that we can improve it through constructive feedback.
Our Stack
Our back-end is based on Solidus, a Ruby-on-Rails-based open-source eCommerce platform. Our front-end is built with Backbone, Webpack, and React/Redux. We use PostgreSQL and are hosted on Heroku.


  • Have at least 5+ years of progressive development experience...you've maybe even led a team at some point
  • Have strong opinions on the pros and cons of various architectural choices
  • Like the idea of small team where you work on both front- and back-end code 
  • Are excited by how open source technology can improve a tech stack
  • Are ready to be a positive force on a growing team
  • Don't consider yourself a "Rails" Developer, a "Python" Developer etc...you know the fundamentals and you're comfortable working in a variety of languages
What you get in return
  • A collaborative & close-knit team: our team is NYC-based and in the office because as great as technology is, there are few substitutes for in-person collaboration
  • A team that takes pride in our work and shares responsibility to see it through from conception to deployment to fixing bugs
  • Top of the line equipment: your choice of hardware, standing desks, two 27" monitors, and more
  • A competitive comp and benefits package, including equity
  • An environment that values honesty, transparency and respect
  • Random acts of team-wide fun including bar nights, book club and Camp Bonobos
