Senior Software Engineer - Internal Tools (Full-Stack) (Remote)
Chicago, IL, USA
Posted on Wednesday, April 26, 2023
We started Super to help maximize lives–both the lives of our customers and the lives of our employees– so that everyone can experience all that life has to offer. For our employees, our promise is that Super is more than just a job; it’s an opportunity to unlock one’s potential, where learning is celebrated and impact is realized.
We are more than a fast-paced, high-growth tech company; we care about our people and take career progression seriously. This is your career and our aim is to supercharge it through the people, the work, and the programs that fuel who we are.
About this team
Internal Tools mission is to build tools and services for our engineers and business teams in order to automate repetitive processes and extend their capabilities. Basically, if something manual should be automated: we scope, build, and maintain it; from our custom Chatbot apps that control our CI/CD pipeline, to the tools our customer support agents use, and beyond.
About the tech: the architecture is powered by micro-services, written primarily in Python (Flask), React, Redis, and Postgres for storage with a focus on scalability and maintainability. We use Gitlab for version control, build CI/CD pipelines using Docker with Kubernetes runners, and our infrastructure is hosted on AWS. We invest heavily in monitoring and automated alerting using Datadog, and integrate this data into creating self-healing systems. We leverage data insights using Snowflake & Looker to facilitate data-driven decision making and experimentation.
About this role
We are looking for a senior-level full-stack engineer, with a primary focus on Python, to build amazing internal products that enable our teams to scale sublinearly. An engineer who is always thinking about system design, driving the architecture decisions, and mentoring the team to reach high-quality results. A motivated self-starter who will help to set expectations with stakeholders and be a bridge for technical advice and task’s statuses. If you love automating toil, creating useful UXs to aid engineering debugging and customer support, and observing the impact of your work on your colleagues’ and users’ happiness and productivity, this is the role for you!
