Overview of Role:

CircleCI is looking for an experienced engineer who cares deeply about users and their experiences with the products they build. As a senior member of the User Engagement team, you will work closely with product, design, and your engineering teammates to build, test, experiment, analyze, and rapidly iterate on the features that have the most impact on the experiences of CircleCI’s users.

About the Team

The User Engagement team is at the forefront of growth engineering for CircleCI. The team’s mission is to hypothesize, build, analyze, and iterate on the features our users interact with most across our web application. We’re a unique team in that we have the opportunity to work throughout the entire CircleCI web application - across marketing sites, new user activation and onboarding, and through to our core CI/CD workflows - to help empower our users to deliver better software, faster.  

Here are a few things you’ll get to do in this role

  • Hypothesize, plan, architect, implement, analyze, and rapidly iterate on features and experiments that will empower our users to continuously ship better code
  • Work closely with product and design to brainstorm effective ways to engage with CircleCI’s users.
  • Help build the platform and processes for all future growth engineering efforts at CircleCI
  • Collaborate with, lead, and mentor your engineering teammates through planning, pairing, testing, and delivery of the features you build.

About you

We’re looking for someone who enjoys collaboration, is curious and interested in learning, brings strong communication and teamwork skills, and helps others grow by sharing their expertise and encouraging best practices. If this sounds like you, here’s the additional experience we’re looking for:

  • Experience writing, deploying, and operating high quality, well-tested, observable front-end code with some experience across the entire technology stack
  • Demonstrable experience architecting applications and services - primarily those with user interfaces - using well-accepted design patterns to allow for iterative, autonomous development and future scaling.
  • The ability to articulate opinions about user interface and user experience design and an understanding of how your work impacts our users
  • A deep appreciation and understanding of testing and its value in operating services at scale
  • A desire to mentor teammates in an open, respectful, flexible, empathetic manner.
  • Experience in the day-to-day practices of continuous delivery and agile development

We know there’s no such thing as an “ideal” candidate - we’re all a work in progress and are growing new skills and capabilities all the time. CircleCI welcomes those who are enthusiastic about learning and evolving, so however you identify and whatever your background, if this looks like a role where you could do work that excites you, we hope you’ll apply.
