The Opportunity: Senior Software Engineer
FreshBooks is looking for a Senior Software Engineer who will play a hands-on role in driving our mission to build a world-class technology company with a global footprint.
You will be instrumental in playing a vital role that impacts the lives of millions of small business owners around the world and directly impact customer experiences and businesses. We are looking for people who thrive in a creative, collaborative and agile development environment.
Whether you're based in Croatia, the Netherlands, Spain, Germany, Poland, the United Kingdom, or Ireland (locations in job posting are so limited, don't you think?), if you're passionate about building software with a global impact that feels like it was built specifically for each person who uses it, we'd love to learn more about you.
What you'll do as a Senior Software Engineer at FreshBooks:
- Build real world applications that have a meaningful impact on customers
- Make sound decisions even in the absence of complete information, and recognize when to over engineer and when not to
- Design and develop application technologies that optimize solution operation and minimize maintenance overhead
- Collaborate with full-stack and mobile developers on cross-functional Agile teams working on features for our customers
- Contribute to a large codebase that contains a multitude of customer features
- Participate and share your ideas in technical design and architecture discussions
- Ensure quality through automated and exploratory testing
- Ship your code with our continuous integration process
- Develop your craft and build your expertise in web full stack development
- Mentor others, versus just answering questions - Pairing and mentoring others is an integral part of this level
- Work in a dynamic Agile based environment
What You'll Bring to the Role:
- A minimum of 7 years of experience in web application development (Agile or Lean environment)
- Experience in Python (our core back-end technologies)
- Step up to handle tough issues and display a can- do attitude
- Experience with databases and SQL – our database is MySQL
- Experience writing and working with REST APIs -- and by “REST,” we really do mean actual resource-oriented REST, and not RPC using HTTP mechanisms
- Experience with Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, Terraform, or other similar tools
- Familiarity with continuous integration (or better, continuous delivery) and automated build pipelines
- The ability to balance desire to ship code quickly to our customers with the responsibility of making good technical decisions
