Senior Full Stack Software Engineer

| Austin

As a Senior Full Stack Engineer, Worksmith will provide you the opportunity to develop the necessary skillset to become a senior executive in the technology industry.

Not only will you will be given the opportunity to hone your engineering skills across our entire technology stack - from our React Native mobile app, to our Spring powered API, to our DevOps setup in AWS - but you will be given the opportunity to learn about business, entrepreneurship, and leadership - how effectively communicate between departments, how to think about analyzing cost vs. value of a new project or initiative, how to set deadlines and deliver. We believe strongly that this well-rounded skillset is a requirement for all leaders in the technology space, and we believe that Worksmith offers the unique opportunity to grow these skills - quickly.

The day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Architecting solutions for new features, from our front end systems, through our API, to our database.
  • Participating in grooming sessions to ensure that the scope of work for each feature is accurate.
  • Contributing to the tech debt backlog and owning the prioritization and roadmap associated with it.
  • Mentoring junior developers.
  • Having a good understanding of not only our technology stack, but of the business itself.
  • And most importantly, delivering the mail - making sure that your features are delivered on time.

Some examples of recent technical projects that our senior engineers have completed include:

  • Set up our CI process with Jenkins
  • Led the efforts to build our new React Native mobile app from scratch
  • Architected a solution to more consistently and predictably send system notifications
  • Load balanced our API through AWS

We look for these qualities in our candidates:

  • A willingness to learn
  • A positive and hard-working attitude
  • Patience and tenacity
  • Organized and detail-oriented

Requirements:

  • Based in Austin, TX
  • 5+ years of professional experience
  • Strong object-oriented design skills
  • Experience with Spring, AWS, and/or React is a plus, but not required

An Insider's view of Worksmith

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have a very collaborative vibe in our office. Our space is open and our desks are all pretty close so we can talk to each other rather than live through Slack (although we do love Slack). Luckily we all get along really well so it's not a burden to be so close together. Overall its a pretty hard working chill vibe in our office and I love it!

What does your typical day look like?

Every day presents a new challenge that we creatively and collaboratively work to overcome. We kick off with a daily team stand up, and might even have a cross-departmental meeting. Some days I work on an event for 100 attendees in NYC, a leaking roof in Miami, AND an emergency plumbing issue in Chicago. Whatever the challenge, Ops has it covered!

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're currently focused on building a scalable marketplace that connects clients to local vendors. It's a unique challenge that requires the right combination of technology and the human touch, and is extremely rewarding as we make progress!
