Are you interested in contributing to a customer-obsessed, high-performing, passionate team? Are you driven by creating innovative products that change the way businesses grow and the way email works? Then join us at Drip!

As a Backend Developer at Drip, you’ll be part of a small, agile, product team that is working to solve some of the industry’s most interesting technical challenges. You’ll collaborate cross-functionally as you design, build, and ship production features for our cloud-native ECRM application. In addition to gaining experience in a rapidly evolving SaaS start-up, you’ll also have a tremendous impact on the product: literally shaping and defining this new CRM vertical.

Some of your individual contributions will include:

  • Collaborating on small, empowered teams to help discover and understand market and customer problems.
  • Writing robust, well-tested code, ensuring that the team has the confidence to make changes and iterate quickly.

  • Have an ability to both understand and also design architectures that scale.
  • Aren’t afraid to push back and voice your opinion if you think differently from the rest of the team; we truly value you and your perspective, and we want to hear it.

Huge plus if you have experience with any of the technologies that we utilize:

  • PostgreSQL, Redshift, DynamoDB
  • Kinesis, Sidekiq

  • Are a proponent of TDD
  • Can teach yourself whatever you need to know and you’re not afraid to go find solutions to difficult problems that crop up
  • Never say “That’s not my job.”

Who we are:

We consider working for a successful early-stage tech company to be a lifestyle choice rather than a job choice. You will work hard and face exciting challenges, but our positions come with amazing advantages and fulfillment to those who earn them. If you bring your best self to the table, here’s what we’ll bring in return:

  • Competitive pay, benefits, and equity

  • Challenging and meaningful problems to solve - you will invariably make a difference and impact
  • A vibrant and devoted team, who still finds time for fun
