Senior Full Stack Engineer - Location Flexible
COVID 19 UPDATE:
We have leaned into the current health crisis with the development of new features like Volusion Curbside. Since March, we have hired more than a dozen new Volusioneers with no signs of slowing down. We are actively interviewing for key roles in order to keep up with our product roadmap goals. During these unprecedented times Volusion continues to provide stability and growth opportunities to our employees and merchants alike.
We are doing our part to flatten the curve so for the time being all interviews will be conducted virtually. As a company ALL employees are currently working remotely.
If “Location Flexible” is listed in the job title of a role, the role can be located in any of the states where Volusion is authorized to do business. Please work with your recruiter to understand any location constraints of a particular role and to communicate your location preferences.
Volusion powers thousands of ecommerce sites - from fledgling entrepreneurs like local artists selling handmade goods to mid market businesses processing millions of dollars in online sales every year. If you're a creative professional that has a passion for driving change and you want to better the world with your ideas, we want to hear from you!
About you:Your gift for analytical processing and bringing projects to perfect resolve has always been your strength. While you don’t seek glory or public recognition, you take satisfaction in knowing you’re great at what you do and that you’re an important part of a winning team. Volusion is seeking a take charge, technical/analytical data-driven perfectionist to fill our open Senior Full-Stack Engineer role.

You will architect these features through collaboration with the team, connect this architecture with business drivers, and ensure implementation inline with industry best practices.

You will be a member of our cross-functional architecture group making technology and best-practice decisions for all of our feature teams and across engineering.
- Define, document, institute, and coordinate engineering best practices: Our platform must be performant, stable, secure, and reliable, and our engineering teams need to deploy routinely while ensuring high quality and repeatability. You will be responsible for working with our teams and our DevOps and operations engineers to implement processes for all of these “ilities” across the platform.
