Engineering – Applications
Button’s mission is to build a better way to do business in mobile. Today, we work with some of the largest and most interesting businesses in the world, to connect consumers with what they want at the tap of a button. We build with the consumer experience in mind, and we have a reputation for paving the future of mobile and enjoying the road to get there. Our partners have turned to us, in large part, because we make complicated ideas simple, and because we can turn them into reality quickly. That’s where you come in.

As a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer, you will be designing and building solutions on top of our core platform technology. Though you will be part of a small team, you will be deeply embedded in a culture of continuous delivery and improvement. We’ve made it easy to ship and deploy new, well-tested code dozens or hundreds of times a day. Your vantage point means you will regularly collaborate with and learn from authorities on our data, infrastructure, and design teams, and you will have big customers both internally and externally.


    • Solve problems end-to-end by building workflows, tools, and UIs that weave together different systems and product concepts.
    • Collaborate with other engineers, product managers, and designers to develop major new products. You will be the person on the team who bridges backend concepts to the ultimate end-user experiences we want to achieve.
    • Make understanding, managing, and interacting with data on Button a pleasant and intuitive experience.


    • Passion for being generalist engineer. You are equally happy working on frontend or backend technology in the course of building something that delights.
    • Broad understanding of frontend development and building rich web applications. Our frontends are built with React and many reusable components.
    • Experience coding in Go, Javascript / NodeJS, or Python — our major programming languages.
    • Excellent understanding of REST APIs, HTTP, and reliability and troubleshooting in these environments.
    • Experience and comfort in a production environment. You’ll be working in a“magic-free” service-oriented environment, using AWS ECS, Docker, and HTTP everywhere.
