Senior Software Engineer, GCP Enablement


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.

The GCP Enablement Team at Mailchimp is seeking a Senior Software Engineer. You can expect to help discover, decide, and document new patterns and guidelines for building or migrating services to the cloud. You will direct implementation of new infrastructure, tooling, or services that support these patterns, and you will help other Mailchimp engineers follow these patterns using the tools you built. This means you enjoy putting your head down and writing code, but you also enjoy working with other engineers wherever they are, solving whatever problem they may have, and using your expertise and tools to help them get their work done.

What you’ll do here: 

  • Help define/build the tools, policies, and procedures used to deploy cloud-based services for Mailchimp and also:
    • Ensure other Mailchimp engineers know about them
    • Help other Mailchimp engineers understand how to apply them for their particular needs by pairing, following their work, and transferring your knowledge
  • Be on the lookout for new problems other Mailchimp engineers have that can be solved with cloud-based services and take these problems back to your team to:
    • Determine if these are common problems needing a common solution
    • Identify new tools, policies and procedures that may be needed to solve the problem
    • Help implement and document these tools, policies, and procedures, and get Mailchimp using them
  • Design and implement production-facing services using these tools, policies and procedures 

We’d love to hear from you if any or all of the below apply: 

  • You like to understand the full stack of technologies that make up a cloud-based production SaaS environment, whether it be application code, underlying compute and storage infrastructure, monitoring and observability, or anything else
  • You love to work with and unblock other engineers through tooling, automation, and proven code patterns, letting them do their work with minimal barriers to entry
  • You have experience developing and owning production-facing cloud-based microservices from design to implementation to deployment. Bonus points if you are familiar with GCP and its service offerings such as Cloud Run, Google Kubernetes Engine, Spanner, and/or CloudSQL
  • You have experience transitioning large, monolithic software applications to a microservices architecture
  • You have experience with Infrastructure as Code tools and paradigms
  • Bonus points for: experience with Go or PHP or similar languages

At Mailchimp, we understand that experience comes in many forms. We don’t just accept differences, we celebrate them, support them, and hire peeps from a wide variety of backgrounds because it makes our company stronger. We’re dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team - so if your experience aligns with what we’re looking for (even if you don’t check every single box), please consider applying!
