We are back at it again partnering with the Collaboration group over at 99designs as they continue to scale, with an opportunity for a Senior Software Engineer to join in on the fun of helping their customers and creatives collaborate to bring their designs to life.
99designs is the world’s global creative platform that makes it easy for clients and designers to work together to create designs they love. Its mission is to champion creativity to create opportunities for people around the world.
Why join now? You’d be joining a high calibre and mature product tech business that’s small enough for you to have real impact.
Working in the Collaboration group you will be at the heart of the ‘logged in’ experience of 99designs. Your attention will be drawn to how clients and designers work with one another – solving critical design challenges, building features and workflows that help creative people and small businesses around the world work together online to achieve amazing results each and every day, and constantly build upon and refine how this space can be more modern, beautiful and ultimately better to use.
Working in the Fulfilment squad you are the intersection of Vista and 99d as they integrate their design and print capabilities. As a bridge between the two companies, this is a team establishing what the future vision of this collaboration is – there are a lot of new ideas, the chance to try out new things, and ultimately to forge a totally new product from this synergy.
As a Senior Software Engineer at 99d, this is a role that intersects being a technical leader whilst still being happy to primarily remain on the tools as a full stack software engineer. As a leader within the team, you will be involved in defining what ‘good’ looks like, leading technical decisions & architecture, assisting with product development, and overall strategic technical decision making.
The techy bits
Every team is fullstack and looks after an end-to-end, vertical slice of the 99designs product. This means that you own part of the front-end, back-end, storage, and operations – the goal is for teams to be in control of delivering a great end-user experience.
A little bit about you
You are either a fullstack software engineer with experience architecting, designing, and developing solutions for the web. 99d’s tech stack is across Golang, TypeScript and React, but we’d love to hear from web devs of any background. 99d are most interested in your practices and opinions around engineering – not what language you are most experienced in.
You are a hands-on, technical leader who thrives on innovation and developing meaningful products. You love building things that are maintainable & scale for growth, and making continuous improvements to how we work. Most importantly, you have a positive, people-first mindset and love building teams that foster creativity and collaboration, and you take ownership of everything that comes your way.
As 99d continues to scale, they are committed to building an inclusive and diverse team that reflects the communities in which they operate. They want people to feel like they belong and can bring their whole selves to work. Their aim is to continue to foster a collaborative environment with a keen focus on innovation, growth and ownership. Below are just some of the things they do to support their people:
Just a little bit curious?! Let’s have a chat to see if this can be your happy (work) place.
