Senior 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 features for the Mailchimp app. You can expect to develop new and existing features with a cross-functional team of designers, product managers, and quality assurance. You will collaborate with others to optimize our development process and feature development.

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, product, ops, and other teams to keep applications healthy and users happy. You prefer using proven technologies to solve interesting new problems. You've broken production environments—and then buckled down, fixed them and maybe you held a blameless post-mortem about it!

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You have experience in a software development environment, with capability in back-end development and/or depth of experience with at least one modern front-end framework (React, Vue, AngularJS, etc.)
  • You have experience driving technical projects, prioritizing work, identifying dependencies, facilitating technical decisions and cross-functional team discussions.
  • You’re experienced in designing and implementing application architectures and code that are highly scalable, available, maintainable, and performant.  
  • You can work independently while also putting an emphasis on mentorship of those around you.
  • You’re comfortable collaborating closely with product managers and designers, providing estimates or product ideas that will influence your team’s roadmap.
  • You’re a thoughtful communicator—some teams are partially or fully distributed so effective written communication is key.

What you'll do:

  • Set technical direction and own the architecture and implementation of features. 
  • Provide guidance and assist in helping knock down walls and clear path towards work completion.
  • Lead a group of engineers and cross-functional team members in the implementation of new and existing features.
  • Provide clear and concise communication regarding feature development statuses to the team and stakeholders.
  • Plan, supervise and manage releases for the work the squad is performing.
  • Empower team members - including other developers as well as Technical Support and QA - through technical mentoring, contributions to the team’s documentation, libraries, and providing automation for manual tasks where appropriate.
  • Define and adhere to internal coding standards, development processes, and design best practices.
  • Ensure quality by performing thorough testing and leveraging peer reviews for your work and the work of cross functional teams.  
  • Help scope, estimate, and prioritize work.
  • Embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence.
  • Write and maintain clean, maintainable, and well-tested code for the future (and present) of the Mailchimp application.

If you are excited about the role, even if these pluses don’t match your experience, you are encouraged to apply!
