Senior Software Engineer

Plug in Useful make some of the most popular SaaS web apps for Shopify. With over 100k users we've followed the rapid growth of Shopify and are looking to add a senior engineer to our 100% remote team of six.

As a Senior Software Engineer you'll have worked with React and Rails before and ideally have used the Flux pattern on a decent-sized web app. You can both architect software, building it from the ground up, and maintain existing systems in a thoughtful way.

Just as important is how you approach problems and work in the team. We don't want someone who puts their headphones on for three days and churns out code. Your instinct is to collaborate.

You'll work closely with our product manager to gather requirements, come up with technical solutions, present these in a clear non-technical way and agree on what to do.

You'll both mentor and learn from our software engineer through code reviews and working on problems together. And you'll help our QA tester to understand changes, how best to test them and be responsive in fixing bugs.

We're 100% remote across different timezones so clear, regular communication is key. Your location isn't important as long as there's a roughly 4 hour overlap with Eastern Time and European Time.

You're experienced in working remotely and have found a schedule and setup that works best for you. If that's a coworking space we can pay for that, but that's optional since you decide where you're at your most productive.


Skills & Experience

  • 1+ years React or similar frontend frameworks
  • 3+ years Rails
  • 5+ years software engineering
  • Have worked on web apps, ideally B2B SaaS
  • Software architecture
  • Have used a few different software patterns
  • Very collaborative
  • Clear non-technical communicator
  • Have worked remotely
  • Curious about new technologies
  • Ideally have worked with Kanban


Full time, 100% remote from any location with a 4 hour overlap with Eastern Time and European Time.

We believe strongly in work/life balance with reasonable hours (usually 37.5 hours or occasionally more when required) and paid time off.

Remuneration is at market rates for a senior software engineer based in London, UK.
