Software Engineer

Atlanta

Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools. 

We are seeking an engineer to help us build and support Mailchimp products. You are a self-directed, experienced programmer who enjoys the trade-offs and complexities involved in implementing new features in a mature codebase. You enjoy putting your head down and writing code, but you're aware that your job isn't done when that code gets deployed: you also enjoy working with support, ops, and other teams to keep applications healthy and users happy. You prefer using proven technologies to solve interesting new problems, but you're aware that favoring older technologies doesn't imply letting your skillset stagnate. You've broken production environments—and then buckled down and fixed them. You're comfortable using git in a continuous Integration environment, and you're not afraid to dig into configuration management tools like Puppet or Chef.

Most of our teams have at least one distributed member, so we encourage flexible working hours and some telecommuting but you should plan to be in the office most days. We’re willing to help you with relocation if you’re not currently local to one of our offices!

 We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You have experience developing new and enhancing existing features, preferably an interest or capability in full-stack development, as well as investigating and resolving defects
  • You understand how to take smart, calculated risks from a technical perspective and are comfortable with championing new ideas
  • You are curious about how customers use the products we build and have an interest or capability in user analytics
  • You are passionate for building great web applications and thirst for learning new ways to deliver great software products
  • You adhere to internal coding standards, development processes and design best practices
  • You ensure quality by performing thorough testing and leveraging peer reviews for your work and the work of others
  • You help scope, estimate, and prioritize work
  • You embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence

 What you'll do:

  • Write and maintain scalable, efficient code for the Mailchimp application
  • Share expertise with development teammates through code reviews, office hours, Tech Talks, and other avenues
  • Provide mentorship for fellow team members
  • Research and propose new approaches to work, new tools, and new best practices for the team
  • Work with design and engineering team members to build features from concept through implementation
  • Work independently with minimal supervision
