| Austin

At Volusion, we make products that people love. Our teams are dedicated to providing SaaS commerce solutions and services for all business types, ranging from startups to large enterprises. If you are the kind of entrepreneur that loves working in teams, has a passion for driving positive change, and wants to change the world with your ideas, we want to hear from you.

The rundown:

We are a customer-first company and we want all efforts and communications to represent this philosophy. Collaboration is an important facet of this. The Engineering team works and sits directly with the Product, Marketing and IT teams. A few examples of feature-adds/projects the team has recently worked on include:

  • Site-builder using serverless infrastructure and React front-end
  • Inline content and style editing platform hosted in the cloud (AWS, Node.js)
  • Event tracking proxy that feeds our various marketing and sales systems (AWS, Node.js)
  • Modernization, automation and continuous deployment practices using tools such as Docker, CodeShip and Octopus Deploy

As a Software Engineer Manager you are accountable for the outcomes of your team(s) and the teams over which you might have influence but not manage directly. You are the person who ensures your team is running smoothly, delivering results on time, and openly communicating the team’s results to outside stakeholders. You are responsible for ensuring the technical products/features being completed align with and satisfy the requirements for the product manager’s vision. You may lead around 4–6 people. Ideally you would be able to lead multiple accelerators at one time.

  • Ensure your team is running smoothly and delivering results on time
  • Be willing and able to work along side your team on a daily basis
  • In this role, you should be prepared to contribute on the ground floor along side the folks you are managing.
  • Continuously deliver high-quality software using the latest proven frameworks, data storage, and open source technologies
  • Plan, design, develop, test, debug, and deploy highly-available ecommerce applications
  • Break down complex requirements into independent coding tasks and strategies
  • Actively looking for ways to make everything better
  • Experience working in modern agile and lean methodologies
  • Own your impact working with designers, peers, product managers and other departments to release features.
  • Be familiar with online SaaS subscription software
  • Brainstorm ideas and directly impact a well-defined business metric
  • Eager to help create the best tech company in Austin

We are looking for someone with:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or similar

  • Google Cloud or AWS experience
  • Database knowledge; SQLServer, MongoDB or more modern no-sql store
  • Strong interest in learning and expanding your personal toolbox of skills
  • High emotional intelligence
  • A/B test mentality

Who is also the embodiment of our culture code (we hope you are nodding your head in agreement as you browse through it!):

  • Humble: Have humility and be respectful; no egos allowed.
  • Effective: Get stuff done!
  • Adaptable: Willing to fill any role, anytime. Going above/beyond the call of duty.
  • Transparent: Open and honest to self and others.
  • A founder: Think big, go fast, and solve for the customer.

An Insider's view of Volusion

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We function a bit like a startup, so it's a fast paced environment that nurtures new ideas, but we also have a lot of fun. From celebrating holidays (even the funky ones- I'm looking at you Back to School Day) to Bingo Friday and Super Bowl parties, our People & Culture team always finds ways to bring us all together!

Samantha

Social Media Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

There are a lot of aspects of ecommerce that can be really complex - taxes and duties, shipping rates, GDPR and data privacy, SEO, etc. The biggest problem we tackle every day is finding ways to do the complex work for our founders so they can focus on what really matters to them - their product or service.

Jonathan T.

Director of Product & Design

How does the company support your career growth?

Here at Volusion one of our primary goals is to "breed amazing founders". We value creativity from our staff and our merchants. All employees are encouraged to offer, explore and create new ideas that will lead to their overall success in personal and work goals!

Malik

Senior Enterprise Sales Advisor

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're there to make sure our merchants get heard so being a great listener helps for a start! Other skills that would make someone successful on our team is being organized, attentive to details, willing to work hard to make the team successful and going the extra mile to make sure that our merchants feel taken care of.
