Senior Backend Engineer

Job Description

The Opportunity

Exciting news - Mixmax hit $12 million in annual revenue and we’re profitable! We just raised more money and are looking to invest more to accelerate growth.

We’re hiring a product-focused software engineer with deep backend expertise and strong attention to detail. As a Senior Backend Engineer, you’ll build the next generation of Mixmax features, scale distributed systems to handle millions of events, and drive quality across a large codebase, all as part of a globally distributed team. You'll also be responsible for improving and strengthening the foundation of our system, improving our team's developer experience, addressing our organisational security needs, and participating in collaborative decision-making about our architecture.

We’re hiring a Senior Backend Engineer for our Automation team.

Team Automation is a cross-functional product team behind Sequences - a core Mixmax feature most customers use to automate their communication with existing and prospective clients. We are looking for a senior backend engineer to join our team and help us scale Sequences to ten times as many customers as we currently have.

We are currently 3 BE, 2 FE engineers, an engineering manager, a product manager, and a product designer.

Being a distributed team, we try to work asynchronously, with only a few team meetings during the week (daily, planning, retrospective, etc). We mainly use Jira and Slack to communicate, and our tech stack is Node, Mongodb, React, and AWS. We are looking for a senior engineer complement the team, someone who is willing to learn and share with the team and help us take our product to the next level!

Within Three Months, You'll

  • Contribute to the modernization of the Mixmax architecture
  • Understand your team’s domain
  • Release big features in small, self-contained increments and evaluate their success using data
  • Make impactful improvements to your team’s payloads running in production

Within Six Months, You'll

  • Contribute to the development of critical projects while working closely with other engineers
  • Work with your team to improve our architectural patterns, scalability, and developer experience
  • Contribute to the culture of a growing team.
  • Join our on-call rotation

Preferred Skills and Background

  • We're looking for engineers who have experience with the core of our tech stack, which includes ES6 JavaScript and/or TypeScript, Node.js, AWS, and MongoDB.
  • Experience with highly scaled, data-intensive SaaS products built on AWS. A good working knowledge of several database technologies is required
  • Strong Agile skills; able to facilitate some Agile ceremonies
  • Mixmax is still growing fast, so we love new teammates who strive to grow personally and professionally beyond just expanding their technical abilities
  • We take pride in the quality of our work, so we're looking for engineers with experience maintaining and supporting the systems they've built
  • We're a distributed team in multiple time zones, so excellent documentation and communication skills are paramount!

It’s Also Awesome (But 100% Not a Requirement!) For You To Have

  • Worked with an event-driven system
  • Data-driven, customer-centric mindset
  • Domain-driven design and TDD skills
  • The ability to refer other great engineers to work at Mixmax! 😉
