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 our Enterprise Salesforce integration that is currently used by over 500 organizations. You will help take the integration and the SurveyMonkey platform to the next level by providing an engaging and native experience across a number of different Salesforce Clouds.



  • Experience developing applications for Salesforce Sales, Service, Marketing, and Community Cloud offerings.
  • You have 3+ years experience developing in the Salesforce platform: using Apex, Visualforce, Lighting UI, Aura Framework, etc.
  • Extensive knowledge of XML, SQL, JavaScript, HTML and CSS.
  • Strong understanding of ETL Tools and integrations leveraging SFDC Web Services APIs.
  • 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.


  • Salesforce Developer Certification.
  • 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 with modern authentication and authorization practices.
  • Experience with continuous integration (frequent deployments).
  • Material contributions to open source projects.
  • Linux (Ubuntu) configuration and administration.


Must be able to obtain and hold government security clearance at the Reliability level.

At SurveyMonkey, we offer competitive salaries, medical/dental benefits, PTO, RRSP matching, and equity compensation.

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