Job Description

Posted 17 days ago

ConvertKit is delightful email marketing software built for creators. We help creators own their audience and turn fans into customers. For makers, authors, chefs, musicians, athletes, and anyone else making a living by creating the culture we all love, there isn’t a better tool for reaching inboxes. More importantly, there isn’t a team more committed to helping creators earn a living doing work that matters.

We’re on a mission to help creators earn $1B using our SaaS email marketing platform. We are 100% independent, 100% remote and are growing rapidly.

We are proud to have built a product that our customers love, and we’re looking for people who have enthusiasm and belief in our mission, vision, and values to join our team.

The Role

You’ll join a small team of engineers responsible for building and supporting ConvertKit Commerce (which beta launches July 15). ConvertKit Commerce allows our users to bridge the gap between building and connecting with their audience and earning an income. You’ll collaborate with other engineers, designers, and product managers to support improvements based on user feedback and build new features.

To learn more about how our engineering team works, peruse our engineering blog. Our post on working at ConvertKit as an engineer answers many of our FAQs and is mostly up to date.

  • Work to foster close and effective relationships within the team: you actively listen to teammates, practice radical candor, and lean in to productive disagreements.
  • You’re accountable for the work you commit to. You proactively communicate blockers, delays, and surface potential hidden complexities.
    • Provide technical leadership to the team and work with the team to define technical direction and architecture.

          This role will close on July 31, 2020. We usually receive a large number of applications, and hope to get through them within two weeks of the close date. You’ll hear from us either way.

          Here’s what you can expect from the rest of our hiring process:

          1. A phone screen with someone on the hiring team
          2. A short, 2-hour coding and writing assignment
          3. A technical interview to discuss the homework assignment and your technical knowledge

            ConvertKit is an equal opportunity employer. We value diversity in all its forms and we hire the best person for each role, no matter your personal background. Research tells us that applicants who are female or non-binary, as well as applicants who are people of color, are less likely to apply for roles they do not feel 100% qualified for.

            We encourage every person who is interested to apply. We’re imperfect communicators, so think of this posting as the starting point for discussion rather than proof you shouldn’t apply. Take the leap. You never know, you might be the perfect person for this role, even if you don’t match 100% of the job description above.
