Who we are looking for:
We are hiring a Sr. Software Engineer to contribute to our rapid product development pace. Our Engineers work collaboratively to set the technical direction for our SaaS products, developing easy-to-use solutions for our customers.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone who has a passion for building leading edge software, loves learning new and emerging technologies, and is driven to help build a successful SaaS product used by thousands of happy businesses. We foster an environment that empowers small teams to collaboratively set the technical direction of our solutions.
We have opportunities on both of our teams (MyCase and AppFolio Property Manager) and all listed locations.
- Develop scalable, robust, and simple web-based solutions to solve complex business problems
- Formulate, implement, and evaluate algorithms and database queries to support SaaS scalability and stability.
- Implement new features and optimize existing ones to drive maximum performance
- Use test-driven development, code reviews and continuous integration to deliver high quality software, and rapidly fix bugs as they come up.

- Leveraging agile practices, encourage collaboration, prioritization, and urgency to develop at a rapid pace
- Research, share, and recommend new technologies and trends
You know you’re the right fit if…
- You love learning about new technologies, but understand the value of continuing to use something old if it still does everything you need it to do.
- You care about the long-term maintainability of the codebase and will learn to advocate for refactoring and clean-ups where appropriate.
- You care about work life balance and want your company to care about it to; you'll put in the extra hour when needed but won't let it become a habit.
Additional Skills and Knowledge:
- BS, MS, or Ph.D in Computer Science or related technical discipline
- Hands-on work/internship experience developing web-based applications, preferably in a SaaS environment
- Creativity, ability to solve complex problems without a roadmap
