Full Stack Engineer

San Francisco, CA
If you want to work with an empathetic, friendly and supportive engineering team, we want to hear from you. In this role as a Full-Stack Developer at HelloSign you will help us scale our highly available eSignature platform and help us move to a service-oriented architecture. In addition to your skill in development, we like our engineers to put themselves in our users’ shoes. We value a cohesive, collaborative environment and invite you to learn more about working with us.

Though we have areas of specialty, we're also generalists and comfortable up and down the stack from writing SASS to optimizing SQL. While we work independently, we support each other through frequent code and design reviews, daily stand-ups, and pair programming, facilitating learning and reducing friction in our regular release schedule of every 3 weeks. In addition to working with each other, we work cross-departmentally to promote transparency and share knowledge.


    • Develop our electronic signing API. We want to be the easiest way for developers to integrate eSignatures into their websites and apps.
    • Continue to scale our system to support millions of users. Integrate our signed documents (PDFs) more deeply with Adobe's electronic signature SDK.
    • Continue migrating our JavaScript to React and our CSS to SASS. We want our service to be fast, responsive, and mobile-friendly.
    • We work mostly in PHP (Symfony framework) but also believe in using the right tool for each job. Our stack also includes AWS, MySQL, ElasticSearch, Redis, Memcached, Beanstalkd (for worker queues), SASS, and React JS.


    • Experience: You’ve done web development with an MVC-type framework. Bonus points for strong MySQL
    • Team work: You enjoy working collaboratively, participating in code reviews, and being a team player.
    • Product-centric: You enjoy solving technical challenges and value writing clean code, but you also care deeply about the experience of the end user.
    • Self-directed: We’re a startup. We need someone who is comfortable taking an imperfect feature specification and driving it all the way to completion.
    • Good judgment: Ability to maintain confidentiality of sensitive customer data.
