As an experienced Senior Software Engineer with frontend focus at Twice Commerce, you play a pivotal role in a cross-functional product development team, serving as a key leader and influencer in software engineering. You build scalable and maintainable functionalities both for internal and external use, and improve the overall quality of our technical systems and processes.

  • Put on a DevOps hat from time to time, and improve the productivity of everyone in the team by improving our existing tooling and implementing new things as needed.
  • Choose the best tools for what you are building, and actively improve the existing codebase and tech stack by leaving it in better condition than when you started.
  • Keep up-to-date with the latest programming tools & APIs, frameworks and best practices, share your learnings with the team in our demo sessions and take initiative in helping us adopt them at scale
  • Participate in our on-call rotation (during regular working hours) roughly every two months to monitor system alerts and support our Customer Success team with users' technical challenges. Fully focus on building software without distractions when you are not the one n call.
  • Anticipate technical challenges on the horizon, discuss strategies with peers, and initiate corrective measures for future readiness.
What we expect from you

  • A passion for and understanding of good UX, and the ability to make design decisions independently
  • A good understanding of the full web development stack + ability to support in backend work. Previous experience with Node.js / Postgres and other backend tooling is considered a big plus.
  • An insistence on quality - you are never satisfied with “OK”, and are not afraid to demand the same also from your teammates
  • Previous experience working in a startup/ scaleup environment
