Full-time

Symphony Commerce is an emerging leader that provides fully managed Commerce and Fulfillment as a Service to brands throughout the world. Our platform allows teams to focus on what they do best - create and market amazing products - without requiring them to master the complexities of running supply chain.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Symphony, you’ll be the primary technical lead within our merchandising, order management and payments, or fulfillment team (we’ve got a lot of opportunity!) While each of our teams focuses on a different part of the ecommerce supply chain, we’re all focused on engineering ahead of our growth. That means working with teams across our company to develop our next generation of internal services, helping us develop the real time data infrastructure needed to help brands monitor and manage their business across the globe, and working to help us design our large-scale supply chain optimization algorithms.

Our goal at Symphony is to build our next generation of leaders from inside our team, so if you’re interested in taking the next step in your career, while remaining hands on for a while, this is a great opportunity to do so.

HOW YOU CAN HAVE AN IMPACT

    • Prototype, develop, and deploy dynamically scaled services to handle our site front, order management, and fulfillment orchestration platforms
    • Lead technical decision making and design for your team, working closely with our principal engineers as well as senior executives to define our technical roadmap
    • Coach and mentor our junior team members as they learn to deal with higher scale and more complex challenges

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR

    • At least 4 years experience developing large, enterprise-scale applications (the language is up to you, but Java or Python is a plus)

    • Passion to find (and help others seek) elegantly simple solutions to often complex problems in an environment where speed to market matters
    • Experience with both relational (MySQL) and non-relational databases (Dynamo, Mongo, etc.)
    • Good communication skills, particularly when it comes to mentoring other aspiring engineers

ENGINEERING PRINCIPLES

    • Place trust in your coworkers, support ideas with data, and adjust your approach as needed.
    • Ask for advice, don’t assume you have all the answers, seek to learn something new every week.
    • Learn to see the world through your customer’s eyes. Ensure your work has had the right impact, and be a constant advocate for fixing bugs and making improvements, however small.
    • Speak up when you see a risk, are getting behind, or need help and encourage others to do the same.

    • Retirement (401k)

We pride ourselves on a culture where we can move quickly, as do most startups. What differentiates us is that we what we do isn’t defined purely with software - there is a tangible intersection with the real world, and what we do here has a major impact on the success of other established and emerging brands.
