Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. 

We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer, DevOps to work on the next generation web publishing platform and help us democratize software development. You’ll be part of a team that builds thrilling user experiences with the latest web technologies: React, Flux architecture, CSS-in-JS, ES2015+, Cypress.io, Jest, and Flow. Webflow empowers hundreds of thousands of people and we need your expertise to make us even better.

About the role:

  • Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote
  • Full-time
As a Senior Backend Engineer, DevOps, you’ll: 
  • Join our Developer Experience team, which is responsible for the Continuous Integration system that allows our engineers to build and test the main Webflow application
  • Build developer tooling that supports and enhances the productivity and day-to-day efforts of your fellow engineers
  • Work with other teams in the Infrastructure group to ensure consistency and performance across environments and improve the process of getting code from local development to production
  • Work in an agile, safe-to-fail-but-always-learn environment, and hunger for growth opportunities
That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

About you

You’ll thrive as a Senior Backend Engineer, DevOps, if you have: 
  • Built and maintained Continuous Integration pipelines and systems
  • Experience with container-centric architectures, built with Docker and tools like Kubernetes (EKS, GKE, AKS, OpenShift, etc.), ECS, Docker Swarm, or Mesos
  • Experience or interest in contributing to full-stack applications built using React, Node, and MongoDB
  • Enthusiasm for mentoring and guiding less-experienced engineers
  • Previous experience as an engineer on a product or infrastructure team
  • Experience with code coverage and test metric tools, understands their limitations and strengths, and are familiar with one or more of them (we use CodeClimate and internally-built test metric dashboards).
  • Experience with testing, test frameworks, test automation, and the work necessary to build and maintain tooling to make testing easier
It would be a bonus if you had one of the following:
  • Experience working in a distributed team, especially across international time zones
  • Experience with performance and/or load testing concepts and tools
  • Have a cursory knowledge of object oriented and functional programming paradigms, GraphQL, and JavaScript runtime performance optimization
If you don’t meet 100% of the above requirements, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a job if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements!

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.
