What Webflow is looking for in applicants

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. 

We’re looking for a Senior Backend Engineer, DevOps to work on the next generation web publishing platform and help us democratize software development. You’ll be part of a team that builds thrilling user experiences with the latest web technologies: React, Flux architecture, CSS-in-JS, ES2015+, Cypress.io, Jest, and Flow. Webflow empowers hundreds of thousands of people and we need your expertise to make us even better.

About the role:

  • Location: San Francisco HQ or US remote
  • Full-time
As a Senior Backend Engineer, DevOps, you’ll: 
  • Join our Developer Experience team, which is responsible for the Continuous Integration system that allows our engineers to build and test the main Webflow application
  • Build developer tooling that supports and enhances the productivity and day-to-day efforts of your fellow engineers
  • Work with other teams in the Infrastructure group to ensure consistency and performance across environments and improve the process of getting code from local development to production
  • Work in an agile, safe-to-fail-but-always-learn environment, and hunger for growth opportunities
That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

About you

You’ll thrive as a Senior Backend Engineer, DevOps, if you have: 
  • Built and maintained Continuous Integration pipelines and systems
  • Experience with container-centric architectures, built with Docker and tools like Kubernetes (EKS, GKE, AKS, OpenShift, etc.), ECS, Docker Swarm, or Mesos
  • Experience or interest in contributing to full-stack applications built using React, Node, and MongoDB
  • Enthusiasm for mentoring and guiding less-experienced engineers
  • Previous experience as an engineer on a product or infrastructure team
  • Experience with code coverage and test metric tools, understands their limitations and strengths, and are familiar with one or more of them (we use CodeClimate and internally-built test metric dashboards).
  • Experience with testing, test frameworks, test automation, and the work necessary to build and maintain tooling to make testing easier
It would be a bonus if you had one of the following:
  • Experience working in a distributed team, especially across international time zones
  • Experience with performance and/or load testing concepts and tools
  • Have a cursory knowledge of object oriented and functional programming paradigms, GraphQL, and JavaScript runtime performance optimization
If you don’t meet 100% of the above requirements, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a job if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements!
