We are the Labs team at RetailMeNot. Our charter is to rapidly experiment with innovative products and technologies to anticipate and shape the future of shopping. We take signals from research, industry changes, data and team experience to decide whether or not we should pursue an opportunity. We believe in releasing MVP’s quickly and are not afraid to throw them away if they don’t meet expectations. The team, including you, will decide which technologies are best applied to each problem.
Do you love solving user problems and technical challenges? Does evaluating new technology and evaluating how it might be used to tackle problems or improve experiences excite you? Do you want to lead and mentor a team of developers?
If so, we are seeking a Staff Software Engineer to join our team consisting of developers, designers, a product manager, and generalists. We are looking for someone that is a leader, confident with experimenting, and compelled to test new ideas quickly to learn and iterate.
