Passionate about entrepreneurship? So are we.

Who Is AppSumo:

AppSumo was started in 2011 by serial online entrepreneur Noah Kagan. The idea was simple: the tools you need to run your business shouldn’t put you out of business. Today, the AppSumo team is home to some of the best talent from Facebook, Microsoft, Bloomberg, to name a few. We’re always looking for the best and brightest to join our team.

But our mission remains the same. To date, we’ve partnered with over 1,000 startups to bring our community the absolute best deals on software. These startups have gone on to become household names in software, we’re talking Evernote, Dropbox, and Mailchimp to name a few.

With hundreds of successful product launches and over a million entrepreneurs served, we’re looking to take AppSumo to the next level. That’s where you, the Senior Software Engineer, come in.

About the Role:

Fundamentally, this job is about diagnosing our biggest business opportunities and implementing cutting-edge solutions to engineering problems to improve the AppSumo platform.

We’re looking for someone who loves solving problems, has a track record of success, and is excited by the prospect of working on a customer facing product and seeing their code impact millions of users within days, not months. Someone who, if given the option, would take a task and run with it, rather than being handheld throughout the process.

We rebuilt our platform last year with an updated tech stack that includes Python, Javascript, node, AWS, Docker, Linux, and Elastic Search. We run continuous integration and deployment using Atlassian Tools (Jira and Confluence), redis, celery, nginx, Postgresql, and git.

Our ideal candidate has 3-5 years of backend engineering experience (familiarity with the above frameworks is a plus but we’re happy to train you).

In your first six months, success means you have learned the code base and shipped out three meaningful updates to the AppSumo website.

Pay & Benefits:

The starting salary for this position is $132,000. In addition, we offer paid lunches every day, a stocked fridge, any snacks you want, and two all-expenses paid company trips with the team. (You can check them out here.) You’ll be equipped with a brand-new computer, monitor, standing desk and any other gear you need to feel productive. Not to mention, we also have in-office massages weekly. Oh, and you can bring your dog to work. We love your dog :)

At AppSumo, we don’t believe in benchwarmers or clockwatchers: we treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that when you have something to do, you’ll get it done. If you need to run an errand, hit the gym, or meet a friend for lunch you’re encouraged to do so. You can work from home as often as you need to, and you’ll have unlimited vacation days to go on adventures. (Everyone says it, but we mean it: Take as much time as you want.)

We’re committed to creating a diverse, supportive, and collaborative working environment - every person we bring on to the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.
