Senior Software Engineer - Full-Stack (Website Team) at BigCommerce
BigCommerce is disrupting the e-commerce industry as the SaaS leader for fast- growing, mid-market businesses. We enable our customers to build intuitive and engaging stores to support every stage of their growth.
The Website and Customer Onboarding team is looking for a full stack senior software engineer to help us build www.bigcommerce.com and new tools to help our customers set up their e-commerce stores. Customized user experiences, flexible content management systems, and high traffic scalable services are the key focuses of this team. We are constantly testing, measuring, and implementing new features for our customers to help them start selling more in a shorter amount of time.
The team works closely with Product, Marketing, Sales, and Support to deliver features that meet the needs of our end users - both internal and external to BigCommerce. We work with design teams to create usable and beautiful front end pattern libraries, optimize user interfaces, and attract new customers to BigCommerce.
We believe strongly in the value of good design and good testing, and we rely heavily on tools like New Relic, Sentry, and Kibana to know what’s going on across the 60,000+ merchants and millions of visitors that we serve. We don’t expect our new-starters to be intimately familiar with all the tools we use, but if you are then we look forward to you sharing your expertise.
**To be considered applicants must reside in the United States**
