 About the team

Evernote aspires to make people more successful by offering technology to improve their thinking, organization and productivity, while building an incredible company in the process. As an engineer on Evernote’s upbeat, social, hip, and quirky Growth Monetization team, you’ll design, build, and polish a portfolio of UI experiments and monetization features, any of which could have the ability to drive significant revenue growth for our company. Our development platform consists of Evernote's next generation mobile and desktop clients, which utilize the latest React & React Native Javascript technology stacks. Our team's goal is to help show our customers the value of Evernote's features in different ways and at key points in their user experience journey, then delight and entice them enough to purchase our product.

You'll be joining a creative, diverse, and analytical team that is passionate about continuous learning around our customers’ behaviors. We value empathy for the customer experience, as well as a quantitative focus on driving business metrics. Our tools empower us to move fast and dive deep – building and deploying experiments to understand and rapidly respond to our customer’s preferences. We generally measure delivery timelines in days, not weeks, and monitor our experiments’ results in real-time. Simultaneously with experiments, we develop and maintain larger infrastructure projects that can span teams and verticals and interact across Evernote's entire architecture.

 What you’ll do
  • Collaborate with Engineering & Product leadership to define, architect, and build new UI experiments, features, and backend infrastructure using React & Javascript.
  • Periodically create, modify, or interface with existing Java/Javascript microservices in our Kubernetes-based cloud environment.
  • Take a lead role on major deliverables and complex technical problems.
  • Mentor junior developers and improve engineering processes and overall excellence.
  • Contribute to maintaining the team's positive, friendly, and fast-paced working environment.

What you’ve done
  • You have 6+ years of software development experience.
  • Expertise shipping modern web applications with Javascript, HTML, CSS, and React.
  • Comfort working across the entire full stack software environment (including ability to modify microservices, databases, and Java code, as well as use GCP/AWS services when needed).
  • You are dedicated to writing reliable, testable, maintainable, and performant code.
  • You are able to communicate complex concepts clearly and succinctly.
  • You’ve earned a B.S. or M.S. in Computer Science or gained equivalent experience.
 What will make you successful
  • Expert level speed and proficiency in Javascript.
  • Familiarity with React, Redux, Mobile Development, and Typescript.
  • Familiarity with (or understanding of) user interface experimentation at large scale.
  • Demonstrated experience being a primary contributor to (or leader of) full stack projects.
  • Proficiency working with databases, as well Java, C#, or a similar backend language.

We are committed to an inclusive and diverse Evernote. We believe that different perspectives lead to better ideas, and better ideas allow us to better understand the needs and interests of our diverse, global Evernote Community. We welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives and are an equal opportunity employer.

An Insider's view of Evernote

What's something quirky about your company?

A quirky thing about Evernote is the level of access provided to company leaders. While a lot of companies have open plan offices, I'm not sure for how many companies that same open spirit infuses communications and interactions. At Evernote, input from employees is encouraged and considered. If you're a member of the Notable Herd, you are heard.


Director, Customer Experience

What does your typical day look like?

I help build Evernote's new mobile apps. This entails conversations with Product, QA, and Design to strengthen the feature descriptions. We research tools, and as we're building, test drive our new feature. We put a lot of effort to review our teammates' code and keep our quality and performance high. We have plenty of fun breaks at the office.


Software Engineer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our team provides fast and comprehensive service to 200M users worldwide. We educate our customers on our platform features and resolve issues through multiple channels. We raise the voice of our customers and inspire feature creation to make our user's lives easier. By doing this, we increase customer lifetime value and company financial health.
