Senior Software Engineer, Full Stack

Abstract

Job description

Abstract is a design workflow platform for teams to version, manage, and collaborate. Our company’s mission is to dramatically improve the productivity, transparency, and impact of Design. Since launching in July 2017, over 7,000 design teams across 75 countries have adopted Abstract, including teams from DocuSign, Instacart, Microsoft, Pandora, Wayfair, Wix, Cisco, Zendesk, and more. 

At Abstract, we believe in a future where all companies recognize that empowering people to be creative unlocks productivity. We seek to build a world where companies see their people's expertise, where systems default to collaboration, and where curiosity and experimentation flourish.

We strive to be living examples of our values and first principles. We do hard things, make our own weather, and question the status quo. When we ship, we ship together. We value grit, inclusion, craft, curiosity, and iteration, just to name a few. And we embrace diversity and respect our differences because we know different minds see more parts. 

If you thrive in a fast paced environment where you can make a big impact on our product and our company culture, we want to hear from you.

Abstract is a remote-first company (US-based only at this time).  

About the Role

At Abstract we develop high quality web applications that help transform the attribution, connection, and measurement of Design to increase its impact. We are looking for a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer to join Abstract, in pursuit of shipping high quality software. 

Join us and have an impact that’s felt and experienced by designers all over the world. Do you crave the autonomy to ship high quality software with peers in engineering, product design, and product management? If iteration and craft are values you are drawn to, if impacting the world of design through a product focused on connection, or if you love to create excellent software with some of the finest engineers and designers around, please consider this role!

We're interested in your ability to solve technical problems, support fellow team members, and partner with teams across the organization in a pursuit of transforming the way designers work. Shipping high quality code, mentoring those around you, and communicating with peers often. Expertise in JavaScript, React, and Ruby is a requirement. Familiarity with Objective-C and Go is beneficial as well. We're very interested in your ability to learn and solve problems as well as your comfort level with learning new languages.

What you’ll do:

  • Discuss, plan, and build new features using Ruby, JavaScript, and React.

  • Triage and fix bugs, often working directly with our customers. 

  • Participate in peer code reviews through pull requests to make sure we're moving fast while also maintaining quality code bases. 

  • Participate in design reviews and give feedback. 

  • Contribute to server-side APIs — through code, peer review, or both — that are needed to ship features. 

  • Participate in our agile methodology (Sprint Planning, Demos, Retrospectives).

 What you’ll bring:

  • Experience building applications using Ruby, JavaScript, and React.

  • An analytical mindset. You think critically about your work, ask questions, approach problems from different angles, and are excited to improve the product. 

  • The ability to make things happen even when requirements are a little fuzzy. 

  • A customer-centric lens. You look forward to working with them so we can identify pain points and create solutions. 

  • Enthusiasm to problem solve. When things inevitably break, you eagerly jump in to diagnose and fix the core issues. 

  • Clear communication skills. You can clearly discuss and explain complex technical topics. 

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience working with Objective-C and Go

  • Worked on small teams and are comfortable wearing multiple hats

  • Experience working in an agile environment

  • Mentorship experience
