About the Opportunity

We are very excited to expand our business to new horizons in Latin America, starting with Mexico as a strategic location. As in everything we do, our commitment and vision are long-term, which is why we are convinced that investing in building a brand new team of highly talented people is the best decision.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Drip, you will have the opportunity to be one of the first of many crew members joining us from Mexico. You’ll be part of a small agile product team that is working to solve some of the industry’s most interesting challenges. You’ll collaborate cross-functionally as you solve, design, build, and ship solutions to our customers’ problems within Drip’s marketing automation platform. In addition to gaining experience in a rapidly evolving SaaS startup, you’ll also have a tremendous impact on the product: literally shaping and defining this new vertical. This role will work with Ruby on Rails.
