Engineering

Does _surveymonkey_ speak to you? Then you’re probably just who we need to help us build interesting, scalable solutions (and create maintainable systems that stand the test of time). See your code go live right away — and have an impact today, tomorrow, and for years to come. More importantly, we’re a friendly bunch looking for a teammate, not a lone wolf. If you're looking to own an integral part of our system, let's chat!

 

The Role

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer for the Developer Platform team who has a real passion for solving complex and interesting problems. We build and maintain the APIs that help grow our platform both internally and throughout our customer base, as well as provide strategic integrations to get feedback where it’s needed most.

Some of the things you will do as a Senior Software Engineer at SurveyMonkey include:

  • Design, build, and maintain high traffic, multi-region services.
  • Top-to-bottom ownership of new features, including crafting technical specs, writing readable and extensible code, and keeping tabs on post-release metrics.
  • Investigate and address issues with performance, scalability, and maintainability.
  • Participate in code reviews.
  • Stay on top of software trends and continuously self-educate.

You will be contributing to the engineering strategy and development, operation, and maintenance of the APIs. You will also be providing guidance and support for a wide range of solutions and services looking build against those APIs.

 

Qualifications

Essential

  • Minimum of six years experience in web application development mainly focused on the backend (we use Python)
  • Experience building and maintaining a publicly available RESTful API that supports tens of thousands of developers.
  • Able to write efficient SQL queries and design schemas for relational databases (MSSQL and MySQL experience is a plus).
  • Culture of code reviews, writing tech specs, and collaborating closely with others (not a solo hacker).
  • Be self-motivated and have a strong work ethic; willing to go the extra mile when it's crunch time.
  • Bachelors or Masters in Computer Science or a related field, or equivalent.

Ideal

  • Experience with multi-region data center architecture.
  • Experience working with a distributed service-oriented architecture.
  • Experience building high-traffic websites.
  • Experience supporting customer SLAs.
  • Experience designing APIs with the OpenAPI Specification.
  • Experience with modern authentication and authorization practices.
  • Experience with continuous integration (frequent deployments).
  • Material contributions to open source projects.
  • Linux (Ubuntu) configuration and administration.

 

At SurveyMonkey, we offer competitive salaries, medical/dental benefits, PTO, 401k, paid holidays and parental leave, and equity compensation.

SurveyMonkey is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
