Our Ways of Working

We’re a remote-first company with team members located across the United States spanning multiple time zones. We know how valuable the flexibility of remote work is for our employees so people can get the work done in the way that suits them best. With rare exception, our employees generally work 9-5 in their home time zone. 

We also know that personal connection is the foundation for the great work we do together. In order to build community and collaboration, we gather in person two times a year at a full company offsite and a departmental offsite. These offsites are expected of employees and are great opportunities to meet the people you work with every day and to do some of the work that is much more difficult to do virtually.

What the Role Is

Babylist is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the Growth engineering team. As part of the Growth team you will help bring the Babylist experience – used and loved by millions of parents and gift givers – to even more people. You’ll work with expert technical leads and software engineers to build the first key experiences our users have with Babylist, from outreach to new users, to landing pages, sign-up, onboarding and beyond.  You’ll work closely with Product, Design, and other teams to execute these key initiatives.

Who You Are

  • A high-performing engineer with experience delivering end to end solutions that drive business growth
  • An exceptional problem solver
  • Very comfortable with JavaScript, React and Ruby / Python (or similar)
  • Able to deliver elegant, effective software solutions in a timely manner
  • A clear, friendly, and open-minded communicator
  • Passionate about making measurable improvements for our customers, and using data to drive growth
  • Successful in an agile work environment and able to break down large pieces of work to deliver value incrementally
  • Familiar with or interested in learning email systems, A/B testing, marketing attribution systems, and SEO
How You'll Make an Impact

  • Design your organization and processes to achieve maximum business impact
  • Champion the use of data across all business functions
  • Create a culture of inclusiveness, kindness, creativity, and impact

 What You'll Do

  • Work closely with product owners to design, implement and deploy systems to support and scale our new-user experiences, including email marketing, attribution, landing pages, and onboarding.
  • Provide thought leadership around process, tooling, systems, and software architecture. We benefit by more knowledge and learning how others solve problems. You will feel excited to bring in new ways of solving problems.
  • Improve and help maintain existing systems. Friction in the development process slows us down and has a large opportunity cost. We see value in taking time to create maintainable systems and remove hurdles from the development process.
