Software Engineer - Applications Team

Published date Posted on Indeed on Sep 18, 2021 (38 d ago)

CafeMedia is seeking a Software Engineer with experience building intuitive user experiences, as well as RESTful APIs to serve those interfaces. You delight in creating new features for both internal and external end users using iterative, agile processes to guide development. You have experience working with Product Management to develop solutions and outline technical requirements for user stories. You have interest and experience in building out and maintaining CI/CD pipelines. Strong Javascript experience (bonus points for Typescript) is a must, along with at least one major API framework/library (e.g. Express, koa, hapi). Experience with front-end frameworks (e.g Angular2+, React, Vue) and Docker and/or Kubernetes is a plus.

This is a work-from-home position. Remote U.S. candidates encouraged to apply.

Required Experience:

  • 5+ years experience building services and RESTful APIs using NodeJS
  • 3+ years experience building web applications using JavaScript frameworks like Angular2 or React, along with the latest ECMAScript standards. Typescript experience is a plus.

Other Skills and Experience:

  • Experience using containers and deploying into a Kubernetes environment a plus
  • Experience developing software using Agile/Scrum methodologies
  • Strong unit testing and CI/CD experience
  • An understanding of ad tech and ad-driven website monetization a plus


Beyond experience building web applications, we focus on the qualities important to success on our team. These include:

  • Adaptable—you jump in, learn, and help where needed; you thrive in an agile team and pivot when necessary
  • Curious—-you actively seek industry and technical knowledge and share what you've learned with the team; you like to learn something out of your comfort zone
  • Detail Oriented—you understand the complexities and importance of variations that exist in your environment, and you obsess over system integrity
  • Pragmatic—you see the big picture and are able to come up with the simplest solution. You resist complexity for complexity's sake, and realize that sometimes perfection is the enemy of the good.
  • Design Focused—you are passionate about efficient system design and architecture, naturally thinking about structure and patterns beyond individual features.
  • Open Minded—you're not fixated on your own ideas or approaches, and accept ideas from others; you seek context rather than taking something on without external input
  • Passionate—you love what you do. You have a positive and enthusiastic attitude about your work, champion your ideas, and your energy is contagious.

CafeMedia’s mission is to keep the promise of the Open Web-that everyone can have their own site, and that creators own their creations and their future. We build technology to help independent creators be their own platform, to reach audiences at scale, and to make more money off their work than ever before. We bring the technology and expertise of the biggest, most innovative and successful digital publishers in the world and put it to work for independent publishers and individual creators. And it’s working-we’re growing fast and helping more and more creators live their passion, independently and on their own terms. That’s why we need you!
