Senior Full Stack Engineer
As a Senior Full Stack Engineer, Worksmith will provide you the opportunity to develop the necessary skillset to become a senior executive in the technology industry.
Not only will you will be given the opportunity to hone your engineering skills across our entire technology stack - from our React Native mobile app, to our Spring powered API, to our DevOps setup in AWS - but you will be given the opportunity to learn about business, entrepreneurship, and leadership - how effectively communicate between departments, how to think about analyzing cost vs. value of a new project or initiative, how to set deadlines and deliver. We believe strongly that this well-rounded skillset is a requirement for all leaders in the technology space, and we believe that Worksmith offers the unique opportunity to grow these skills - quickly.
The day-to-day responsibilities will include:
Architecting solutions for new features, from our front end systems, through our API, to our database.
Participating in grooming sessions to ensure that the scope of work for each feature is accurate.
Contributing to the tech debt backlog and owning the prioritization and roadmap associated with it.
Mentoring junior developers.
Having a good understanding of not only our technology stack, but of the business itself.
And most importantly, delivering the mail - making sure that your features are delivered on time.
Some examples of recent technical projects that our senior engineers have completed include:
Set up our CI process with Jenkins
Led the efforts to build our new React Native mobile app from scratch
Architected a solution to more consistently and predictably send system notifications
Load balanced our API through AWS
We look for these qualities in our candidates:
A willingness to learn
A positive and hard-working attitude
Patience and tenacity
Organized and detail-oriented
Based in Austin, TX
5+ years of professional experience
Strong object-oriented design skills
Experience with Spring, AWS, and/or React is a plus, but not required
