Smile is the largest provider of reward programs in the world. We reward tens of millions of people every year, and power rewards programs for thousands of businesses around the world. We’ve got big scaling plans in 2019 and beyond - we need amazing talent to achieve our goals and you get to be the one to find them and bring them to Smile!
You'll be helping us build new ways to help online businesses excite their customers. We're looking for Senior Engineers who love to work smart and not always reinvent the wheel. You'll be working with Rails, Postgresql, Kafka, Elastisearch and Redis on the backend, and the savior that is Ember.js on the front-end - all hosted on Heroku so we can focus on shipping a great product. We use Github, Slack, and Heroku CI to communicate efficiently and ship code every day. We recognize that languages can be learned and care more about the way you think about coding than your experience with a specific language or framework.
A little more about the Smile Development team:
The engineering team at Smile.io believes in being proud of your code, owning what you ship, and embracing new tools to increase developer happiness. We work in fixed-length build cycles that are punctuated by cool down weeks, where we focus on learning, architecture, and platform health. We ship early and often, using feature flags to get our code in the hands of end-users as soon as possible. We also rely on data, user research, and product feedback to make and shape important features and decisions.
We are remote-friendly, with engineers on our team working from home offices in Romania, Cyprus, New Orleans and more! Tell us where you'd like to work when you apply!
