Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.
We’re adding a Staff Software Engineer to our team to lead and manage strategic initiatives to improve and scale our backend services, while helping to mentor other members of our engineering team.
About the role
As a Staff Software Engineer, you’ll:
Architect, design, and implement scalable backend services
Cross-collaborate with software engineers, product managers, designers, and QA analysts in an autonomous, supportive team environment
Build and maintain unit and integration tests
Mentor other engineers on best practices, code design considerations, and quality
That said, these role responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly.
You’ll thrive as a Staff Software Engineer if you:
Have 5-10+ years of experience in scalable, multi-tenant environments.
Have 2+ years experience tech leading teams, including helping scope and breakdown work.
Value testing and documentation equally as much as your code
Are comfortable with ambiguity and scoping solutions with your teammates
Have consistently communicated trade offs throughout a project to meet both technical and business requirements
Get excited about encouraging and developing other engineers
If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
At Webflow, we believe that what we’re doing doesn’t define our success — so we focus on our “why" and "how".
To empower everyone to create for the web — and lead impactful, fulfilling lives while we do it.
