Software Development Engineer

We are building our core engineering team right now, so this is a high impact and high ownership opportunity with founding engineer-level equity. If you’re a talented software engineer interested in solving real-world problems and building an amazing business, we may be the perfect place for you to come and do the best work of your life.
What you'll do:
An engineer in this role is expected to design, build, deploy, and manage systems from scratch. You will wear multiple hats of “architect”, ”tester” or “debugger” … everyone is expected to build systems from scratch. This means that you will need to learn, ideate and innovate on various layers across the stack… and that comes with a tremendous amount of learning
Write code that contributes to Shipmnts's core product
Building state machine models with smart workflow engines
Building a documentation system that enables massive amount of automation for this industry
Building an ocean and air logistics quoting and booking engine
Integrating freight partners, trade experts & their service portfolios into our platform
Developing tools for analytics around global trade, supply chain, freight partners...
Help build scalable programs that standardize information flow and increase operational capacity
Be part of a close-knit engineering team that ships new code every day

What you'll need:
Demonstrated experience in developing scalable backend services and implementing web applications - instead of looking at your experience in number of years we dig into your past work to find indicators of a level of competency and maturity signaling somebody with 3+ years of experience and experimentation (needless to say your work portfolio matters a lot to us)
A product-first approach to building software. You care about the real world functionality of your programming
Master of the language and platform of your own choosing. We try not to enforce language/platform selection. So whatever you know, you must know it in and out!
Experience in a fast-paced work environment & a bias for action. You ship quality code quickly

What you'll get :
The opportunity to define the engineering culture of a small team
Product ownership - take autonomy over core products & product features
Design & write software to help manage and automate the complexity of a multi trillion dollar industry - "global trade"

What you are:
Calm under pressure, have a great work ethic and communicate well
Self aware and always pushing for a higher standard. Always proactive, open to new ideas and feedback (that last part is very important as we work on rapid agile cycles so being able to process feedback is critical)
Anti fragile: with every failure you become stronger and better.
Detail oriented and absolutely intolerant to compromise or sub-optimal shortcuts
Problem solver with a global mindset

Our Stack (we are not limited to this as we love to experiment):
Ruby on Rails
Python
Node.js
