Job Description

MakerBot believes there's an innovator in everyone. As a global leader in desktop 3D printing, we set the standard in reliability and ease-of-use by providing effective solutions for every stage of the desktop 3D printing process. From the start, we have also redefined what's possible for makers of all walks by introducing many industry firsts. Today, we are proud to both serve the largest install base of 3D printers worldwide and run the largest 3D design community in the world.

Over the past few years, we've expanded the functionality of our printers to include the kind of accessibility and control consumers have come to expect in our always-on, cloud-connected world. And the web team makes that possible. Your work will have an enormous impact on our users.

For this particular role, we are looking for someone who will focus on our backend services and APIs. While we remain open to using the right tool for the job, current services are written in Javascript/Node.js and usually paired with a NoSQL database. Within the team, we also work with PHP and MySQL as well as some WordPress and Ruby on Rails.

In a nutshell, we are looking for someone who:

* Can take a feature from concept to execution by thinking through problems and potential pain points and offer solutions while working in harmony with others involved in the process.
* Is able to understand, maintain, and build upon existing systems.
* Can work with junior developers and help grow their skills by creating backbones that others can build upon.

Specifically, a successful candidate will have:

* A strong bias for maintainable and performant code.
* Empathizes with our users and aims to do right by them.
* Enough experience to feel comfortable owning their projects. 5+ years working with large projects using similar technologies. They will ultimately be creating, reviewing, and approving architectural design for our 3D printing web services.
* Strong written communication skills and a belief in the power of documentation and unit tests.
* Enough knowledge of server architecture to understand the impact of your code on performance and to troubleshoot issues.
* The ability to write and consume APIs.
* As user data is very important for providing a customized experience, a thorough understanding of security best practices is necessary

How we work:

* We are a small and somewhat nimble team. We aren't afraid to try new things if something isn't working but we also aim to be pragmatic about scope and timelines and seek to find the right balance.
* We follow some overarching principles of agile and scrum methodologies. Specifically, we work in two week sprints, run a daily stand-up, and hold sprint planning and sprint retrospective meetings.
* After passing all unit tests, new code goes through an asynchronous (i.e. via GitHub) peer review cycle before it gets sent off to spend some quality time with our QA team.
* We have a growing CI/CD infrastructure, and hourly deploys are common some days.

Bonus Skills:

* An interest in 3D printing.
* Competency in DevOps type tasks.

Additional tools and Technology we use:

* Git & GitHub
* AWS & Google Cloud Services
* Jenkins & CircleCI
* Docker
* New Relic & Sumo Logic
* Gulp, Sass
* Memcached
* Slack

Other things we do:

* Demo Day: Every other Friday the software, product, and design teams gather to share what we've been working on. It's a nice way to wind down the week. Soft drinks and beer provided!
* Programming Workshop: On non-Demo Day Fridays we hold an optional programming workshop. This a team-driven meeting where topics are suggested by all of us. Want to learn something new? Suggest it! Want to tell everyone how great some new tech is? Propose it! Beverages provided.
* Training Opportunities: Is there a conference or training you'd like to attend? A book you want to buy? We can make that happen!
* Quarterly team outings: We carve out time to have fun on company time! Events in the past have included: catching a film and grabbing lunch at the nearby Alamo Drafthouse; playing games, sipping beers, and slamming snacks at Barcade, and exploring good eats in Brooklyn on a local food tour. We are always open to suggestions!

Sometimes, it's the little things:

* Amazing view from the 21st floor. Great for Instagram!
* Snacks and seltzer. Fruit, yogurt, nuts, granola bars, chips, cereal… it's like bringing your pantry to work.
* A ping-pong and pool table, if you're into that sort of thing. And healthy intra-office competition to go with it.
* Twice weekly on-site, after-work yoga.
* Access to 3D printers, of course. But also helpful people who love sharing their knowledge and expertise to help and teach you how to use them.
* Monthly birthday celebrations complete with cupcakes, brownies, and some ridiculously delicious pudding cups.

The compensation package includes health, dental, vision benefits, pre-tax benefits for transit, 401K matching, and three weeks of vacation.

This is a great opportunity to make a big impact in a unique industry working with amazing people.

MakerBot, a subsidiary of Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS), is a global leader in the 3D printing industry. Founded in 2009 in Brooklyn, NY, MakerBot strives to redefine the standards for reliability and ease-of-use.
