The engineering team at Smile.io believes in being proud of your code, owning what you ship, and embracing new tools to increase developer happiness. We believe small, empowered teams can ship products with the highest impact. We are remote-friendly, with engineers on our team working from home offices in Romania, Cyprus, New Orleans and more! Tell us where you'd like to work when you apply!
As a Software Architect, you'll be responsible for thinking holistically about the Smile platform. You'll build and design the foundation of Smile's future products, features and systems, paying particular attention to how they integrate for seamless, stable performance. You'll act as a technical lead for the team, mentoring and coaching software engineers to grow their own architecture skills.
We currently power over 30,000 rewards programs, reaching more than 50 million customers, and serving 100k API requests / hour. Our primary deployment languages are Ruby on Rails, React & Ember.js, but as a team we enjoy learning new languages and technologies - so this list could change! We use Github, Slack, and HerokuCI to communicate efficiently and ship code every day.
You're an engineer who gets excited about turning ideas into reliable production code. You appreciate clear code that can be read by others and yourself 6 months down the line. You enjoy collaborating with other developers, and get excited about thousands of people experiencing a feature you shipped just minutes ago. You thrive on fast feedback loops & iterative development cycles. You've got experience working in a test-driven development environment and can help us adopt this approach at Smile.
