Opportunities at Snowvation
Where do you go to book ski and snowboard trip for yourself or your kids in advance of that annual vacation in the Rockies? The resort website of course! Except, many of the resorts you know take your information and put it into a spreadsheet and then use that to schedule their team and fill their classes. Not anymore! Enter Snowvation! We’re a 2 year old startup with rapidly growing revenues, investors who believe in us and a dream for the future of the resort industry. We need your help – c’mon board!
senior software engineer
Are you smart, talented and have enterprise grade experience building web apps? This is no lightweight job – the platform is stable but the backlog is big and the feature wish list is long. You probably have about 5 years of experience under your belt so this isn’t your first rodeo. You enjoy outdoor sports but understand that we’re a startup so we’re all working hard to evolve, stabilize, and extend the product – growing from dozens of customers to hundreds as fast as we can.
who you are:
A professional developer with 5 years of experience as a software engineer and with a couple of enterprise level projects under your belt
Proud of your BS in Computer Science, Engineering or a related discipline
Demonstrated experience as a full stack developer including web frameworks and mySQL databases
Ninja level Python 3 skill – this is your tool of choice
A solid understanding of development best practices and respect for well-engineered products
A deep technical tool belt that might include Django, Flask, SQLAlchemy, WTForms, Ajax, Bootstrap, Jira, Stripe and Google hosting
A talent for making sense out of obscurity – you immediately begin executing concepts in your mind the moment someone has an idea.
A “can do” not “can’t do” mindset
Have worked in an early-stage company so you know what it means to shift priorities and responsibilities.
Organized professional capable of managing your time, tasks and activities without daily guidance
Willing to jump in wherever we need you – we’re a small company and everyone has a collection of hats to wear
imagine spending your days:
Actively working to burn down the backlog and prioritize the feature list – taking on the tough stuff and breaking out reasonable chunks for others to tackle
Collaborating with the leadership team to determine the best design path for future functionality
Coaching and mentoring your junior team members so that they can learn from your experience and grow professionally
Staying on top of the latest in web, ecommerce and API trends in order to keep us relevant
Working closely with the entire team to make sure that our product performs well and stands up to some tough scrutiny
Actively participating in establishing the company’s strategic direction and driving the technology evolution
Sharing your experience and best practices to elevate the entire organization – a rising tide lifts all boats
Grabbing lunch with the team and working through that tough technical issue over a game of foosball
What you'll enjoy as a member of the team:
Salary and real stock
A scrappy, smart and dedicated team of pros to hang out with
Super cool location in the ballpark district for your working pleasure
