We’re in high growth mode at DojoMojo and looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our growing team as we build out a next generation marketing platform. We’re an incredibly passionate, collaborative and entreprenrurial group of engineers, QA, product managers and UI designers that work at a fast pace to ideate and build the new experiences our customers love. As a Senior Software Engineer, you've been in the industry for at least 5-10 years and have a proven track record of success, thriving in different team environments. You should demonstrate a high level of expertise in full stack web app development as you’ll play a key role in creating the technical roadmap through designing, developing and implementing solutions across our tech stack - AWS, Node.js, React, PostgreSQL, and an emerging Serverless backend
Our engineers are generalists, and your responsibilities will be flexible based on company needs as well as your skills and interests. You must be comfortable taking end-to-end responsibility for complex projects, and have experience researching infrastructure solutions and making key architectural decisions.

You enjoy supporting and mentoring less experienced developers, conducting code reviews, and all the while continually leveling up as an expert and leader in engineering best practices, learning new technologies as you tackle fresh challenges autonomously.
