Full Stack Software Engineer

Our engineers are intricately involved with the entire software stack. In a given week, you might be working on our React Native mobile app, our client and service provider web portals, or our or Java / Spring Rest API and are expected to contribute thoughtful, business-oriented solutions to the challenges that arise with each.
Being an engineer at Worksmith means getting your hands dirty to truly understand the business. For example, you might:

  • Shadow the sales team to understand the client onboarding process and devise a solution to increase the signup conversion rate.

  • Dive into the data with our operations team to identify spending trends and build predictive reporting models.

  • Review client and service provider feedback with the customer success team to identify common pain points in the software and produce more efficient, easier to use systems.

You'll be owning the design, implementation, testing, launch, and support of the applications you write. Engineers here are expected to be self sufficient and are given the latitude to make autonomous decisions with their code.

The right candidate:

  • Can write reusable, maintainable, bullet-proof code

  • Is excited to head to the whiteboard to work out a tough problem with your fellow developers

  • Can take feedback as well as you can give it

  • Can work with our business owners to gather requirements and produce a well thought out project plan

  • Is willing to participate in an on-call rotation and contribute to the automation of our infrastructure, deployment and CI systems

  • Displays a self-motivated drive to continuously improve

  • Is motivated to not only achieve but exceed expectations

We also look for these qualities:

  • A willingness to learn

  • A positive and hard-working attitude

  • Patience and tenacity

  • Organized and detail-oriented

Requirements:

  • Based in Austin, Texas

  • A four-year college degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or similar

  • Proficiency in Java or a similar object-oriented programming language

What we offer:

  • A work-hard, play-hard culture with an entrepreneurial approach

  • Opportunities that accompany a high-growth organization

  • Competitive compensation including stock options

  • Health and dental benefits

  • Flexible vacation policy

  • Casual, fun work environment: we enjoy team lunches, happy hours, ACL Festival, and electric bike tours

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!

Jessica

Marketplace Operations Specialist

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!

Marisa

Marketplace Operations Specialist

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!
