HelloSign Job Description
If you are an Elixir Software Engineer and would like to join us in building our newest product, HelloWorks, we want to hear from you.
As a Software Engineer at HelloSign, you will develop our new HelloWorks product and platform with new features and scale in mind. In addition to being highly skilled on the technical side, you should also be able to put yourself in the user's shoes and think critically about what you're building. We take pride in our work and want you to as well.
Our team of 9 engineers is curious, driven, friendly, and collaborative. We believe in an egoless approach to development and a blameless approach to problem solving. While we work independently, we support each other through frequent code and design reviews, daily stand-ups, and pair programming, facilitating learning and reducing friction in our regular release schedule of every 3 weeks. In addition to working with each other, we work cross-departmentally to promote transparency and share knowledge.
- Help scale this new product and our existing system to support millions of users.
- While this new platform is purely in Elixir, our existing platform is in PHP. Therefore, PHP knowledge is not required, but it’s nice to have.
- We believe in using the right tool for each particular job. Other than Elixir and PHP, our stack also includes AWS, MySQL, ElasticSearch, Redis, Memcached, Beanstalkd (for worker queues), SASS, and React JS.
Engineering experience: You’ve done web development or backend service development for 4+ years. Bonus points for strong MySQL experience.
Elixir experience: Ideally you have been coding in Elixir and Phoenix for some time and you have deployed and maintained an Elixir project in a production environment. Erlang experience also counts!
Teamwork: You’re used to working collaboratively, participating in code reviews, and being a team player.
Product centric: You love solving hard technical challenges and producing clean code, but you realize the product and the end-user’s experience is the most important thing. You need to care about the users and think beyond just the technical challenges.
Self directed: We’re a startup. We need someone who is comfortable taking an imperfect feature specification and driving it all the way to completion.
Good judgment: Ability to build secure and reliable systems.
