Senior Backend Software Engineer

Omaha or Remote

Workshop is looking for a driven backend software engineer to help develop and design our software solutions. We’re a fast growing, venture-backed startup based in Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha-based candidates are preferred but will consider remote within ± 2 hours CST for the right candidate.

As a Senior Backend Software Engineer, you will:

  • Work closely with our product & design team to translate and execute product vision into scalable product.
  • Be a stakeholder in engineering and product strategy — this isn’t just another place to knock down story points and tickets — you’ll have meaningful and direct ownership in your work.
  • Have the autonomy to ship code to production regularly and frequently.
  • Develop tested, scalable core product features that are seamlessly integrated with our API driven frontend.
  • Own the technical direction on key roadmap projects for the team.
  • Mentor and coach junior developers on the team.

To be successful at this position, you’ll need to:

  • Have a passion for building and maintaining quality user experiences on the web at scale.
  • Sweat the small things. We view product excellence as a north star — We’re only successful when our users successfully use Workshop and care deeply about the end-to-end user experience.
  • Maintain a strong understanding of modern software development methodologies and their best practices
  • Have a deep knowledge and experience of object oriented programming in dynamically typed languages like Ruby or Python. Deep experience with Ruby on Rails is preferred — we use Ruby on Rails with some Node & Typescript to power our backend (and Vue on the frontend).
  • Have experience with relational SQL databases, schema, and query optimization. We’re big fans of PostgreSQL.
  • Care about web performance/optimization and treat performance as a feature.

Bonus points if you:

  • Have an interest or experience in securing web applications
  • Have experience with SQL database, schema, and query design and optimization. We’re big fans of PostgreSQL

Compensation and benefits:

  • Highly competitive compensation
  • Healthcare
  • Stock options
  • 401k
  • Unlimited vacation
  • Flexible work environment
