Who Is AppSumo
AppSumo is the tech powerhouse you’ve probably never heard of. We’ve helped launch MailChimp, Evernote, and Dropbox (to name a few) — over 1,500 startups have come through our doors and become household names in software. (Learn more about us here!)
Our motto? The tools you need to run your business shouldn’t put you out of business. And we are committed to bringing our community the absolute best deals on software. With thousands 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 This Role
This job is about assessing where the biggest business opportunities exist on our site and implementing cutting-edge solutions that improve the AppSumo platform. In this role, you’ll work on customer-facing products and watch your code impact millions of users within days! We work hard and ship fast, but we still keep a high bar for quality and testing.
On the day-to-day, you’ll be:
- Working with our product and design team to deeply understand and communicate the needs of our users
- Building infrastructure to handle hundreds of petabytes of user data using Postgres, ElasticSearch, Redis, and more
- Validating the performance of your amazing code through telemetry and dashboards
- Working in a CI/CD environment with Python and Jenkins, and touching on AWS and Docker
- Partnering closely with customer support to respond to user issues and solve them in a permanent, scalable way
This is a unique role best suited for someone who can fearlessly take a task and run with it, and use their broad expertise to work through the whole stack with confidence. Our ideal candidate has:
- 5+ years of industry experience, preferably with an e-commerce SaaS/PaaS company
- Knowledge of 3rd party integrations
- Experience owning an entire feature from start to finish
In your first six months, success means learning the code base and shipping out three meaningful features to the AppSumo website.
Why work for us?
We provide a competitive compensation and benefits package. We have moved to a hybrid workplace where you can choose your best working environment.
When at the office, you will be equipped with a standing desk, a monitor, and any other tech you need to feel productive. Oh, and you can bring your dog to work. We're animal lovers here!
In addition, we offer a stocked fridge, any snacks you want, and (once we’re allowed outside again) two all-expenses-paid company trips with the team to the local Sheraton—just kidding: last year, we went to an all-inclusive resort in Costa Rica; you can check it out here.
At AppSumo, we treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that you'll get it done when you have something to do. 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: We expect you to take time for yourself.)
We’re committed to crafting a diverse, encouraging, and collaborative working environment—every person we bring onto the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.
