In this role you’ll plan, design, and implement new features in our merchant and consumer applications, impacting both our in and out of store experiences.

Who you are:
You’re an experienced, full stack developer who demonstrates a high level of curiosity and keeps up with the latest technologies. You have developed and maintained multiple full stack web applications throughout the entirety of their lifecycle. You have a strong eye for software design. You want to tackle tough technical challenges and have a desire to impact local businesses and communities.

What you’ll do:

  • Maintain a high level of quality in our code bases through well-written automated tests, good architecture and code review practices
  • Own, design and code product initiatives from start to finish
  • Work collaboratively with designers, PMs & QA to ensure our products are the best they can be
  • Always be shipping software

What we’re looking for:

  • B.S. or greater in Computer Science or a related field (math, physics, engineering) and strong CS fundamentals
  • 5+ years experience working with modern JavaScript and backend frameworks - we use Angular, React, and Python/Django but if you have a strong eye for clean modular code then you will fit right in
  • Strong team player - we work in small product teams that work very closely together and are constantly collaborating in order to move as fast as possible
  • Experience and/or interest in semantic HTML/CSS. If this makes you cringe and yearn for something better then we want you
