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 talented Front-End Software Engineer for the Developer Platform team who has a real passion for solving complex and interesting problems, and is constantly looking to improve and optimize the customer experience.

  • Build new dynamic features for our cloud-based software applications.
  • Create unit tests to ensure functionality throughout the development cycle.
  • Help grow the company by implementing trackable metrics for data-based decision making.
  • Work on both user-facing and non-user facing portions of our software.
  • Stay on top of software trends and continuously self-educate.

As part of our R&D team, you'll work closely with product managers, fellow software developers and designers to build new features and enhance current offerings in one of SurveyMonkey's software products. Every engineer here gets a chance to contribute cool and innovative new features that hit production fast, so you'll have plenty of chance to watch as features you worked roll out and help improve the lives of literally millions of users.
