Job Description

The Opportunity:

Shutterstock is looking for experienced software engineers to join our team and help drive the future of our platform. You will be working with highly motivated and extremely talented engineers, focusing on quality, performance, and scale at every step. Our users are our number one priority, so we work hard to deliver value back to them with everything we do. We believe strongly in team ownership of systems, which includes defining the vision of the services to prioritization of projects and empowering teams and individual team members to develop the solutions that best meet the needs of everyone involved.


* Contributing to all aspects of the services under the team's ownership, which includes design, implementation, refactoring, automated testing, deployment, and uptime of the services.
* Helping other team members grow as engineers through code review, pairing, and mentoring.
* Improving internal team processes by keeping what's working, throwing away what's not.
* Collaborating on the vision of the services under the team's ownership.
* Building the technology the right way: for us, this means simple, well-tested systems that gradually grow over time, and that provides plenty of insight into production performance.
* Engineers are expected to support systems they develop in production which involves being on-call. The actual periods and frequency vary by team.


* At least 5 years of experience as a Software Engineer
* Experience programming in at least one of the following: Node.js, Java, Perl, Scala, Go, PHP, C/C++
* Strong software development fundamentals
* Experience building RESTful APIs which power multiple consumers, as well as building services which consume from RESTful APIs.
* Experience building distributed services / applications which scale elegantly
* Proficient in both relational and nonrelational databases
* Basic understanding of DevOps and Unix systems
* Comfortable with a Git and Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) workflow
* Passionate about what you do and care deeply about the things you build.
* Able to clearly communicate to technical and non-technical audiences.
* Ability to both work independently and be a team player

Preferred Qualifications:

* Experience with front-end technologies, particularly vanilla JavaScript and React, as well as HTML, CSS, and Typescript or ES6+
* Node.js experience with good knowledge of key libraries
* Experience building message-driven architecture using tools like RabbitMQ
* Familiarity with Amazon Web Services and other cloud service providers
* Experience with automated configuration tools like Puppet, Chef or Ansible
* Experience building event-driven or message-driven architecture using tools like RabbitMQ and Kafka.
* Experience with end-to-end automated testing frameworks
* Experience working in an agile environment
