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.

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.

We allow for flexible hours and some telecommute options, but you should be in the Atlanta office most days. We don’t care about pedigree or what languages or stacks you've worked in, we're just looking for great engineers.

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 

We'd love to hear from you if: 

  • You have experience developing new and enhancing existing features as well as investigating and resolving defects
  • 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
