Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small businesses. 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.

We’re looking for an engineer with an interest in engineering infrastructure to join our team.  The Engineering Enablement team provides tooling and services that powers the future of application development and operations here at Mailchimp.  You are a self-directed, experienced programmer who enjoys the trade-offs and complexities involved in implementing new features in a mature codebase.  You enjoy putting your head down and writing code, but you're aware that your job isn't done when that code gets deployed: you also enjoy working closely with Support, Operations, and other teams to keep applications healthy and users happy.  You prefer using proven technologies to solve interesting new problems, but you're aware that favoring older technologies doesn't imply letting your skillset stagnate.  You've broken production environments—and then buckled down and fixed them.  You're comfortable using git in a continuous Integration environment, and you're not afraid to dig into configuration management tools.

Most of our teams have at least one distributed member, so we encourage flexible working hours and some telecommuting but you should plan to be in the office most days. We’re willing to help you with relocation if you’re not currently local to one of our offices!

We'd love to hear from you if: 

  • You have experience developing new and enhancing existing features, and preferably an interest or capability in backend/infrastructure engineering (infrastructure as code).
  • You are happy straddling the line between application development and operations, adding value to both.
  • 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 architectures and code that are highly scalable, available, maintainable, and performant.
  • You appreciate and champion utilizing open source technologies and other standards to deliver new capabilities.
  • You can work independently while also putting an emphasis on mentorship of those around you.
  • You like to experiment: you’re comfortable with trying things, occasionally failing, and trying something else.
  • You have strong communication and teamwork skills - this team is partially distributed so effective written communication is key.
  • You embrace and demonstrate our values: humility, creativity, and independence.

Pluses, but not requirements, include:

  • You have experience developing new and enhancing existing features within the Mailchimp monolith.
  • You have experience in cloud infrastructure and application development including, but not limited to: Container Management, DevOps , CI/CD, Cloud Services and Virtualization.

What you'll do:

  • Build software for the next generation of Mailchimp’s infrastructure and applications using Go, PHP, Shell, and Google Cloud Platform services.
  • Share expertise with development teammates through code reviews, office hours, Tech Talks, and other avenues.
  • Provide mentorship for fellow team members.
  • Research and propose new approaches to work, new tools, and new best practices for the team.
  • Work with design and engineering team members to build features from concept through implementation.
  • Work independently with minimal supervision.

At Mailchimp, we understand that experience comes in many forms. We don’t just accept differences, we celebrate them, support them, and hire peeps from a wide variety of backgrounds because it makes our company stronger. We’re dedicated to adding new perspectives to the team - so if your experience aligns with what we’re looking for (even if you don’t check every single box), please consider applying!

Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
