Senior Software Engineer, Front End

Redbubble is an online community and retailer dedicated to all things creative! We are looking for passionate developers to join our growing Engineering team so that we can keep delivering great features for our artists. We have big ambitions, and are looking to scale the team to match them.

Our goal is to empower creativity in many online forms and so our challenges are both big and small. Right now, we are one of the largest Rails sites in the world, and we process over 20M requests per day - and growing. We utilize many technologies to make this a smooth ride: Rails, Amazon Web Services, Solr and Linux. In addition, we have a modern front-end stack, targeting modern browsers (IE10+) and using SCSS and BEM methodologies. An intuitive and beautiful interface is part of every feature we release. We're constantly looking at trends in web design and looking to apply them.


One of the benefits of being a young, growing company is that we have a fresh culture. We believe that the best software is designed, written, tested and deployed by small, nimble, cross-functional teams. As an engineer, you will be involved in every step of the process, from inception to launch. Everyone contributes to business direction and has the opportunity to see their ideas come to fruition; whether you're someone who likes to optimise or a creator with new ideas, everyone gets airtime. This liberates us to deliver faster than most of us have worked before, and with higher quality.
