Yesware is seeking a Back End Software Engineer to join our talented development team. We have created a feature-rich backend architecture and data platform along with apps for Gmail, Outlook, and the web. Together these provide the leading prescriptive sales platform, which serves over 100K sales professionals worldwide.

We value the insights and creativity of our engineers. You'll work side-by-side with product owners to create high-quality products at a fast pace. Our culture fosters innovation and excellence in engineering practices. Developers are responsible for the quality of what they produce, as well as putting that code into production and keeping it healthy. We have an internal open-source model in which you'll learn and extend the rest of our technology stack to realize the features you're working on.

Because you will be tasked with delivering maintainable, well-documented software, and because some of your teammates may be remote, we highly value written communication skills at Yesware. As such, we require all engineering applicants to please provide a cover letter in their application. We look forward to hearing from you!

Requirements:
 
  • Industry experience in software development. (Minimum of 1 year, additional experience highly valued.)
  • Engineering experience in a Ruby/Rails environment or similar web stack.
  • Evidence of exposure to architectural patterns of a large, high-scale web application (e.g., well-designed APIs, high volume data pipelines, efficient algorithms).
  • Excellent software development habits: object-oriented design, unit testing, integration testing, data structures, etc.
  • Experience with at least one SQL or NoSQL database.
  • A hands-on attitude and a willingness to get things done.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
  • Emotional maturity and adaptability.
 
Nice to Haves:
 
  • Experience developing email tools.
  • Experience developing SaaS offerings.
  • A desire to learn the other tools in our stack.
  • Experience developing strategies to handle database growth over time with both SQL and NoSQL databases.

Software Engineer

"The perks are pretty unbeatable - good pay, healthcare, yoga class, nap room, massages, lunch - but the real reason to work at Yesware is the environment. The people are smart. You won't find yourself doing busywork or tasks that you don't think contribute to the company's overall goals or your professional development. You're working on a product that customers love, which feels great. This is the perfect place to work if you feel that you're most productive when you're happy to come to work every day."

"There's a reason that Yesware was listed as one of Boston's Top Places to Work. Truly one of the most wonderful, open, empathetic teams I've ever come across personally or professionally. The work that Yesware does to create a culture that is constantly improving shows that they truly embody their values of being inclusive and empowering. Very supportive place for women and the LGBTQ community. Besides the incredible people, the perks are hard to beat as well -- nap room, snacks, beer on tap, monthly massages, meditation/yoga classes... the list goes on. Career-wise, Yesware has provided room for me to grow in ways I previously could not have imagined. Taking initiative is rewarded, and I've found that you can get involved with nearly any area of the company you're interested in (have seen people move across departments to pursue career interests many times)."

"First off, Yesware offers an amazing team to work with. The people they hire always fit to the company's core values - which is HUGE for me. Someone is always there to pick you up and help out when you need it. Also, the benefits and perks offered here help keep everyone happy to be at work/excited to do their part toward our company goals (which is VERY different from previous places I've worked). Lastly, the future of Yesware looks very bright. Specifically, because we offer a great product that I believe in, and everyone has the opportunity to earn their way to a promotion/excel along their personal growth path. I absolutely love it here. SO happy I found Yesware!"
