About the Opportunity

We're looking for talented and passionate engineers who want to join our existing, high-performing Enhanced Content team.

As a Software Engineer at Salsify, you will be entrusted to innovate and constantly improve our products to deliver a platform and experience our customers love to use. Our engineers are simultaneously scaling a demanding application while simplifying sophisticated business processes for our users and learning from senior team members along the way. You will help solve complex business and scalability problems and help define the direction of the product. Engineers in this role will work across the entire Salsify technology ecosystem, building front-end interfaces in Ember.js and vanilla JavaScript, while interacting directly with retailers like Amazon. There are also many cross-collaboration opportunities, which allow team members to work with other engineering teams while driving towards company-wide goals.

We deeply value our engineering culture. We strongly emphasize trust, mentorship, and collaboration. We care about building the right thing, the right way, and having fun while we do it. Every member of our team has the freedom and responsibility to make Salsify a great place to work. From architecting and designing to building elegant, scalable software, Salsify empowers our engineers to innovate while solving exciting problems.

How You'll Make an Impact:

  • Build and ship production-grade software.
  • Set technical direction and help define the technical approach for the work the team takes on.
  • Work closely with product, design and engineering management to help define the product roadmap.
  • Collaborate with go-to-market teams to launch new functionality.
  • Grow as a leader both on the team and within the broader engineering organization with the opportunity to mentor new team members as the team grows.
  • Promote new and better approaches to engineering, tooling, and ways to think about problems.
  • Participate in tech talks and guilds to exchange ideas and strategies that advance our ability to build quality software.
  • Be proud of what you work on, learn from and give back to your team and the broader Salsify community - contribute to the success of an exciting and fast-growing Boston-based company with global customers.

You'll Enjoy This Role If You Have:

  • 5+ years of commercial software development experience.
  • A command of one or more JavaScript frameworks (most of our front-end was built with Ember & Typescript).
  • Experience with server side languages (most of our back-end was built with Ruby).
  • Experience building consumer facing applications in a SaaS or product-based company, specializing in front-end or full-stack development.
  • Experience with contemporary frameworks, build tools, and testing tools.
  • A drive to build scalable and performant applications - you know that just because a query returns the results you need, it may not be the most efficient approach.
  • An interest in exchanging ideas around building robust, secure, maintainable software.
  • Comfort providing and receiving feedback on implementation ideas.
  • Thoughtful opinions about efficient and secure deployment practices.
  • Ability to adapt and adjust the priorities according to the context.
  • The opportunity is based in Portugal.

What We Have for You:

  • Competitive Salary
  • Equity
  • Unlimited Vacation
  • Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance (Multicare)
  • Life Plan
  • Meal Allowance
  • Remote Allowance
  • Referral Bonuses
