Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. 

We’re hiring for a Senior Backend Engineer to help evolve Webflow’s CMS product to support substantial workloads and build the largest multi-tenant database for no code visual developers. You can expect to help improve the scalability and usability of our CMS using the latest technologies, and build an innovative architecture that puts the needs of our customers first. 

About the role 

  • Location: San Francisco HQ or remote (Western Hemisphere) 

  • Full-time

As a Senior Backend Engineer, you’ll … 

  • Write scalable services, as well as new APIs and rewriting old ones, in Node.js, Express.js, Mongo, GraphQL, Apollo and AWS Lambda

  • Collaborate with software engineers, product managers, designers, and QA analysts in an autonomous, supportive team environment

  • Solve problems in a highly technical platform that empowers hundreds of thousands of people

  • Refactor existing components and code paths into clearer, standardized, documented, and testable API-driven boundaries

  • Unite our front and back end services

  • Build and maintain unit and integration tests (Jest and Cypress)

  • Improve our planning, development, and deployment processes to help you and your fellow team members

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities. 

About you 

You’ll thrive as a Senior Backend Engineer if you:

  • Have previous experience engineering scalable multi-tenant systems 

  • Deeply understand data design and modeling

  • Are familiar with one or more Javascript type systems (we use Flow here)

  • Love studying design patterns — and know exactly how and when to apply them

  • Are comfortable behind a linux terminal

  • Are comfortable working in an agile, safe-to-fail environment

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.

About us 

At Webflow, we believe that our success will be defined not only by what we do — but also by how and why we do it. So, here is the Webflow “why” and our “how”: 

Our dual missions — one for the world, one for us

  1. For the world: To empower everyone to create for the web and spark an unprecedented wave of digital innovation.

  1. Start with customers

  2. Practice extraordinary kindness

  3. Be radically candid

  4. Move intentionally fast

  5. Just fix it

  6. Lead by serving others

  7. Dream big

Our commitments to you 

  • We’ll pay you! This is a full-time, salaried position that includes equity

  • We’ll invest in your physical and mental well-being with health, dental, and vision benefits and a monthly stipend for health and wellness expenses 

  • We’ll pay you to take a vacation … seriously. We’ll give you a $1,000 bonus for taking your first vacation with us that is more than 5 days 

  • We offer flexible parental leave 

  • We provide remote employees with the equipment they need to create a great remote work environment 

  • We will offer you the support you need to help you grow as an impactful Senior Backend Engineer and a human being 

Ready to apply?

Note: You'll need valid U.S. work authorization to join us.
