Teespring (YC W13) Is Looking for a Senior Full Stack Engineer


What does our team do? Everything from a compelling experience for buyers, to a feature-rich platform for sellers, to a backend manufacturing pipeline to fulfil orders. At Teespring, “full stack” means anything from warehouse management systems to our 3rd party API to the number crunching analytics behind our campaign dashboards. It’s up to you to pick the challenge which excites you the most!

What is the job? We take code quality and engineering efficiency seriously. Engineers pair about 50% of the time, and we have a robust but lightweight code review process to disseminate knowledge. Nothing goes to production without automated testing. We do 2-week sprints, with engineers' input a key part of the planning process. Your expert input will also be considered when planning new feature work: both in terms of implementation decisions, and product experience.

Who is the ideal candidate? A passionate programmer with a leaning towards full-stack development. Substantial front ends skills are a definite boon, since many features have some user interface component. Deep, professional experience with Rails will be especially useful. A person with strong opinions, weakly-held.

If you are successful in this role, a year from now: Your team-mates will look to you for technical advice, guidance, and mentorship. You will have architected and led the creation of a significant piece of the team’s technology. Our collaborative environment and generous training budget will have substantially enriched your technical abilities. You will be speaking as an expert in your field at conferences and meetups.

Our Environment: Modern Rails Stack, React.js, TDD/BDD with RSpec/Cucumber, Golang. A big push towards CD and SOA at the moment.

What do we offer? Happiness is just as important to us as hard work. All startups in San Francisco offer the same perks, but what makes us different is our desire to completely change how the world thinks about custom e-commerce. That being said, here are the benefits you will receive: working with talented, collaborative, and entrepreneurial teams. Medical, dental and vision insurance for you, your family, and pet. Unlimited paid time off and 9 paid holidays. Generous stock options. Free (delicious) catered lunch and dinner daily. Fully stocked kitchen with drinks, snacks, and bar. Training, career development, and meet-up hosting. Fun SOMA office offering easy access to Muni, Bart, and Caltrain with commuter benefits. Social activities, office happy hours, concerts, game room, and endless free t-shirts!
