Role Description

About the Role

Think of the last Pull Request you merged at your previous job. Likely, it was code that ran in a small corner of your company's codebase, where its presence was appreciated but not noticed. At Shogun, your ideas and code will have a tremendous impact on the direction of our product, from the very first week. You will have opportunities to work on high impact projects that span across many departments.

Reporting to the VP of Engineering, you will mentor others, own complete feature implementations, and spearhead architectural decisions. We are a close-knit team that gets things done while having fun doing so. Engineers are encouraged to be autonomous, solving open-ended problems and maximizing their own growth. We view the company as a conduit for individuals to reach their highest potential in an environment that provides mutual benefit for both parties.

Here's what you'll do:

  • Contribute to the codebase within your first week
  • Ideate with other departments to better solve our customer's problems
  • Build and own end-to-end solutions using a wide array of technologies
  • Maintain existing systems to ensure high quality and scalability
  • Own the roadmap for an area of our Product
  • Scale a team with the growth of the company

Here's what we're looking for:

  • 4+ years of technical experience
  • Experience as a generalist, working on whatever part of the stack is necessary to solve the problem at hand
  • A passion for building web and mobile applications or systems that support them
  • We use Ruby on Rails, React, React Native, Docker and are hosted on AWS. Experience in one of these or similar web technologies is required.

Here's what we value:

  • Growth. Between hackathons, tech presentations, and weekly Brain Gains, we encourage each member to keep up to date and learn about the latest technologies and how we can leverage them.
  • Ownership. You will have autonomy over how you decide to implement solutions to problems.
  • Accountability. From setting your own deadlines to backing up your design decisions, we expect each engineer to follow through and be held to the highest standards.

Engineers work closely with every department in the organization -- from sales and customer success to product and marketing. Come join a team that has an incredible impact on the success of the company!
