Red Ventures is looking for a talented Senior Software Engineer to join our team. We’re looking for experienced, professional engineers with go-anywhere, do-anything attitudes to build value for our customers and our team. Yes, you should write clean, performant, testable code in a variety of languages across our microservices. But you’ll also dive into logs and metrics with our DevOps group and take responsibility for the way your code performs in the cloud. You’ll pair up with automation engineers to isolate and eliminate bugs. You’ll collaborate with our security team for audits and penetration tests. You’ll talk with product management to align code to customers’ needs. You’ll sync with data analysts and data scientists to build rich AI-enabled experiences and make sure we can build a clear understanding of how to improve our products. You’ll have the opportunity to present interesting work and celebrate wins at our biannual internal tech conferences. We offer ambitious projects, a rich teamwork environment, space to grow your career and your skills and — once the pandemic is over — a hefty supply of free breakfast tacos.
