Senior Backend Software Engineer, Core

San Francisco HQ or remote

  • Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers everyone to create incredible experiences for the web — without writing any code.
  • The Core team is focused on transforming Webflow into foundational building blocks that will enable internal and 3rd party developers to extend and multiply Webflow’s value in a visual-first, scalable and secure way.
  • We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer to help us build a scalable infrastructure that will support this Platform initiative.

About the role

  • Location: San Francisco HQ or remote (anywhere in the Western Hemisphere)
  • Full-time

As a Senior Backend Software Engineer, you’ll

  • Lead new feature work and refactoring efforts across our stack
  • Design and implement scalable services in Node.js and AWS Lambda
  • Write performant UI components (React) that delight users and amplify their abilities as creative problem solvers (check out CSS Grid, E-commerce, Interactions, and more!)
  • Work on a highly technical platform that empowers hundreds of thousands of people, and serves millions of page views an hour
  • Cross-collaborate with software engineers, product managers, designers and QA analysts in an autonomous, supportive team environment
  • Create new APIs and rewrite old ones using REST, GraphQL, and Apollo
  • Build and maintain unit and integration tests (Jest and Cypress)
  • Mentor other engineers on best practice, design considerations, and quality
  • Support others on your team in a technical capacity
  • Receive support designed to help you grow as an impactful engineer and a healthy human being

About you

You’ll thrive as a Senior Backend Software Engineer if you:

  • Have contributed to building scalable, multi-tenant environments
  • Previous experience in either Kubernetes, Docker, Terraform, Chef, Puppet, or Ansible
  • Previous experience in JavaScript, Node.js, and React
  • Deep understanding of data design and modeling
  • Built and worked on complex web applications
  • A deep understanding of design patterns — and an even better knowledge of when to apply them
  • Very comfortable behind a Linux terminal

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
