Senior Software Engineer
DrayNow (Conshohocken, PA) is seeking a local Senior Software Engineer to help our team inject technology into the tech-barren freight industry, automating complex processes, helping truck drivers find work, and adding previously-impossible efficiencies that have real green environmental impact. We’re a startup fresh into a large series-A funding round, with an already-successful platform seeing heavy use in the wild. We need your help to make it even better, adding features that our fax-machine-and-email-driven customers view as nothing short of magical.
We’re a small-but-growing team based out of Conshohocken, PA across from Spring Mill Station. We’re a supportive bunch that believes strongly in open source, preventing silos, great documentation and test coverage, pair programming, code review, and high communication. As a company we firmly believe that family comes first, with everyone from our leadership on down exercising flexible hours to give school events, little league games, and family outings priority with no questions asked. We’re deeply invested in our work and seek to work with folks just as self-driven and passionate about our craft as we are.
Our tech stack includes a range of AWS services, Docker, Serverless, Node.js, and databases including Elasticsearch and PostgreSQL on the backend. On the front, we’re React + Semantic UI + MobX on the web side and are currently rearchitecting our mobile app to use the latest and greatest in cross-device technologies. Even with a team as small as ours, we have high expertise in tough topics like containerization, high-scale architectures, security, and encryption, and we love to mentor.
Who We’re Looking For
Our Senior Software Engineer should:
offer a level of expertise with some of the tech stack above
be excited about mentoring less-senior engineers as our team grows
have a track record of great communication with non-technical users, with comfort translating between customer needs and technical specifications
be able to dictate proven solutions to problems based on experience
be opinionated about how great software is written, tested, and documented
passionately want to expand their area of expertise across the full stack
have little ego collaborating with other senior engineers on new solutions
be self-motivated to learn about the latest advancements in our technology space
Your responsibilities include:
Maintain our recently-rearchitected platform and keep technical debt to a minimum
Collaborate with the CTO and other senior engineering staff on platform enhancements and new product offerings
Ensure high quality of automated tests and documentation
Review pull requests of other team members across our full tech stack
Work directly with users to flesh out technical requirements for new platform needs
Prescribe solutions to tough problems without needing them dictated to you
Interested? Here’s what we offer:
Competitive salary based on knowledge and experience
Incredible health insurance
Flexible hours and weekly work-from-home days
A high-positivity environment that doesn’t sugarcoat problems
A crazy supportive team that celebrates each other’s wins and works together through losses (as infrequent as they may be ;-) )
