Job Description

As a developer at GrowSumo on the Core Product team, you will work alongside other skilled developers, product leads, front-end developers, and success engineers to craft high-performance and highly operable web services that scale to support our rapidly growing user base.

You will empower GrowSumo’s mission of building the sales force of the future, building trust with our clients, partners, and colleagues as a team leader and mentor to junior developers.

What we do:

The GrowSumo Core team builds the foundational product that connects some of the fastest growing companies in the world to a global marketplace of distributors. Our clients send us over 25 million transaction and integration requests every year so that we can properly attribute and reward their partners for driving key business metrics.

Who we are looking for:

  • You have a strong learning reflex and you see challenges as a chance to grow.

  • You want to see customers getting value out of the software you wrote to solve their problems.

  • You are happy to help other developers learn from you, and you hope they challenge you to learn new things as well.

  • You’re proud of the code you write, but you’re also pragmatic about design vs iteration: you know when it is time to refactor, and when it’s time to ship.

  • You’re focused, driven and can get challenging projects across the finish line but you know that sometimes it’s okay for deep work to take its time.

  • You have experience operating services in production and take software quality practices personally.

  • You write meaningful tests and understand the value of observability and operability and what they mean in different contexts.

Requirements

  • You have 2+ years building web applications on a team
  • An ability to quickly learn new languages, or an existing familiarity with Python, Vue.js, Angular1.x, Golang, or similar languages.
  • Write readable, robust and reusable code
  • Work well on a growing team, communicating clearly and often.
  • You have an interest in constantly learning how the team can build better, more scalable, and more sustainable solutions.
