Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools.
Platform engineering is a new group at Mailchimp focused on maintaining and improving our core components, and we are looking for a Senior level engineer to help us do it. This team is focused on our internal job running tool, which is critical for our engineers and our feature development. You can expect to own the implementation of our technical roadmap, empower other engineers, and design best practices. You will collaborate with teams throughout the company and represent our group in cross-departmental projects.
At Mailchimp, we value learning, collaboration and clarity. You’ll find success here if you enjoy writing code, but you're aware that your job isn't only about shipping: you are a welcoming contributor that knows how to communicate with your team in order to provide great software. You prefer using proven technologies to solve interesting new problems. You've broken production environments—and then buckled down, fixed them and maybe you held a blameless post-mortem about it!
What You’ll Do:
Build a deep appreciation for the needs our job runner solves and own the implementation of features to address those needs
Communicate and collaborate with other engineering teams to facilitate their usage of the job runner into their products
Empower team members by providing technical mentorship, documentation, and testing infrastructure
Ensure quality by performing thorough testing and leveraging peer reviews for your work and the work of cross functional teams
Embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence
We’d Love to hear from you if:
You have experience driving technical projects, prioritizing work, identifying dependencies, facilitating technical decision and cross-functional team discussions
You’re experienced in designing and implementing application architectures and code that are highly scalable, available, maintainable, and performant
You are comfortable working with and improving upon legacy systems and code
You have experience with cloud computing platforms, ideally Google Cloud Platform
Significant coding experience in Go, PHP, Python, or other languages that can be demonstrated through a portfolio of code
You can work independently while also putting an emphasis on mentorship of those around you
You are passionate about building and delivering great features for customers
