Senior Software Engineer at Spring, Inc.
New York, New York, United States (Posted Oct 15 2015)
About the company
Spring was founded with one simple vision: to create the best mobile shopping experience. Members of our team have helped change the world through their previous work building products used and loved by hundreds of millions of people at tech companies like Google and Medium and brands such as DVF, Bergdorf Goodman and Marc Jacobs, just to name a few. Now we’re working together to re-imagine mobile commerce.
Our office is a unique hybrid of engineers and our brand team. Though our backgrounds in development and fashion may seem an odd pairing, we're actually a tight knit bunch! You'll find us cranking, guzzling cold brew and/or having late night dinners in our awesome office in the heart of SoHo.
Our engineering team, more specifically, is creating a high performance infrastructure, and we chose a high performing language, Go, upon which to build it. We're mostly generalists who work on all components of our stack, often switching from one product to another. We're collaborative; it's important to us that our dev environment be one where you can get very good at what you do very quickly, and where you have both responsibility and support.
We provide our employees with a happy, productive workplace, and we're constantly improving! We keep a stocked fridge, bring in breakfast 3 times a week, lunch on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We love karaoke, our kickball team, and our office pup, Gizmo.
Our employees enjoy full benefits, unlimited vacation time, a competitive salary, stock options and the opportunity to work with truly excellent people on an product that'll impact millions.
Relocation compensation available
We're looking for developers who love to get stuff done, but also understand code quality, large scale, and the tradeoffs that come with each choice they make.
Things like good coding style, a continuous build, tests are part of the process early on. We're very passionate about great engineering and about striking the right balance between speed, maintainability and scalability.
Our current stack is Go, PostgreSQL, AngularJS and iOS and we picked them thoughtfully because they are the right tools that will help us move fast and build high quality products.
Take ownership over vertical parts of our products, spanning from the consumer all the way to the backend.
Evaluate various APIs, tools, frameworks, and make informed educated decisions about using them or developing something in house.
Ship great code and take responsibility when things break.
**Will pay for relocation.**
Skills & requirements
A degree in engineering, CS, Physics, Math - and a strong track record of interesting projects.
Feel comfortable switching languages and learning new ones. Go is a young language and we don't expect you to be proficient in it, but you will have to pick it up.
Experience writing software for a startup or large tech company. Experience on products that served millions of users is a plus.
Ability to go from ObjectiveC to sysadmin at a moment's notice - all to get a project shipped.
