Software Engineer III

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’re looking for an engineer with an interest in engineering infrastructure to join our team.  The Engineering Enablement team provides tooling that powers the future of application development and operations here at Mailchimp. 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!

 

What you'll do:

  • Build software for the next generation of Mailchimp’s infrastructure and application using Go, PHP, and Google Cloud Platform services 
  • 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

 

We'd love to hear from you if: 

  • You have experience developing new and enhancing existing features, and preferably an interest or capability in backend/infrastructure engineering
  • 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 are passionate for building great web applications and thirst for learning new ways to deliver great software products
  • You embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence

Pluses, but not requirements, include:

  • You are happy straddling the line between dev and ops, adding value to both
  • You have experience in cloud infrastructure and application development including, but not limited to: API Management, Container Management, DevOps ,CI/CD, Hybrid Cloud, Security, Serverless Computing, Virtual Machines
