Description

Senior Software Engineer

 

 

The Core Business team at RetailMeNot is responsible for the flagship www.retailmenot.com consumer website across the desktop, tablet, and mobile platforms. We help over 40MM visitors per month save money and discover great deals at their favorite retailers.

 

Our engineers work across the stack in a wide array of technologies and are constantly on the lookout for new technologies to improve our code:

- UI Engineers build intuitive interfaces to help users find deals and optimize every aspect of our pages, ensuring we have the fastest in-browser performance. On any given day, a UI engineer might write Sass, Handlebars, Twitter Flight, Node.js, Python, and PHP.

- Full-stack engineers iterate quickly to deliver new features while maintaining the high performance and scalability of the system. A Full-stack engineer might work in Javascript, Node.js, PHP, or Python as well as SQL and NoSQL databases.

- Algo engineers work on improving ranking algorithms that select which coupons are shown to users. An algo engineer could explore data with Numpy and Pandas, set up a MapReduce job, or train new machine learning algorithms.

 

This team is integral to the RetailMeNot business, so we need engineers who can deliver results while understanding the structure of a large system. We provide cross-team leadership that ensures that RetailMeNot code meets a consistent standard while building the platform of the future. Across the team we take an analytical and scientific approach, improving products through extensive A/B testing. When you ship a feature on this team, you’ll know your exact impact to the bottom line.
