Staff Developer, Public Platform

Company: Stack Overflow
Location: Erie
Posted on: April 5, 2021

Job Description:

At Stack Overflow, our mission is to empower the world's developers. Every day, millions of developers come to us to get answers to their programming questions, collaborate better with their teams, and find their next dream job. As the world continues to transform with technology as a leading force, we're driven to make Stack Overflow a place where everyone who codes feels welcome to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.

Some Recent Projects We've Been Working On Include

Staff Developer is one of our highest levels of individual contributor on Stack Overflow's engineering teams. You'll be a thought leader, a high productivity engineer, and a role model for other developers on your team and beyond. As a leading voice on a cross-disciplinary, agile squad of designers, product managers, and other engineers, the contributions you'll make to our most visible products will have a far-reaching impact and shape the future of the world's largest community of developers.

  • Automating site elections to allow users to nominate, discuss, and vote for the volunteer moderators of over 150 Q&A communities that are part of the Stack Exchange network.
  • Overhauling our question review system so both volunteer reviewers and question authors can get actionable feedback and automated assistance to improve question quality.
  • Rolling out a home grown and open source rich text / markdown editor to improve question drafting and editing for the thousands of contributors who use it every day.
    You'll work primarily in our main tech stack of C#, ASP.NET, and Microsoft SQL Server, with supporting technologies like Redis, TypeScript, and Elasticsearch. If you're not familiar with our specific tech stack, we'll pair you with mentors who will help you bridge the gaps. As a company dedicated to increasing developer knowledge, we'll give you the resources and support you need to develop mastery in your craft.

    We Expect To See
    • Extensive programming skills in your language of choice (not necessarily ours) and a track record of getting stuff done. You are adept at shipping high quality, well-tested code in a fast paced environment.
    • 10+ years of full-stack web development experience with any major server-side stack, relational database, and modern front-end (JS, HTML, CSS). Experience in our stack is a plus, but not a requirement.
    • Deep experience with Agile methodologies such as Scrum, XP, or Kanban. You've been on teams that practice Agile and you understand why it's beneficial for the team. Certification is a plus, but not a requirement.
    • A track record of leading and mentoring less experienced developers. You are eager to teach others and invested in the growth of your team.
    • Self-motivating, self-directing, and a great communicator (written and oral). You thrive in an environment that grants you a lot of autonomy to explore creative solutions.
    • Excellent problem solving skills. You excel at analyzing and solving problems using technology.
    • Living and working within GMT-7:00 (US) to GMT+2:00 (Europe) time zones.

      We Like To See (but Not Required)
      • Experience working remotely and/or working with teams that are distributed geographically.
      • An active Stack Overflow profile, open source code, example projects that you're proud of (whether open source or worked on at a previous job), or any other evidence of your passion for building great software.
      • Knowledge of how Stack Overflow works from our blog, podcasts, and other public artifacts. Ideas about how to evolve the platform and increase our impact on the developer community are even better.
      • Experience with building high scale, community-based applications. Skills working with large amounts of data or utilizing machine intelligence are a plus

        What You'll Get In Return
        • Competitive Base Salary
        • 20 days paid vacation
        • Generous parental leave (16 weeks at 100% pay), family care leave, and unlimited sick days
        • Stock options
        • Completely free health insurance (no copay, no premiums)
        • Gym membership reimbursement
        • Employees will never be poked with a sharp stick
          If you want to work remotely---. We'll reimburse you up to $2,000 to set up a great home office.

          If you want to work in our office--- You'll be in our headquarters in New York City, and enjoy additional benefits like free lunch every day prepared by our own in-house chefs, transportation reimbursement, and all the espresso you can drink.

          Work Environment

          We're a remote-friendly team. Whether you work remotely or work out of our office (re-opening June 2021 at the earliest due to COVID-19), you'll be part of a remote work culture that emphasizes online communication (Slack, GitHub, Hangouts, Zoom, Stack Overflow for Teams).

          Employment is conditioned upon successful completion of a background check and upon having the appropriate legal right to work.

          Diverse teams build better products.

          Legally, We Need You To Know This

          Stack Exchange, Inc. does not discriminate in employment matters on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, military service eligibility, veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or any other protected class. We support workplace diversity.

          But We Want To Add This

          We strongly believe that diversity of experience contributes to a broader collective perspective that will consistently lead to a better company and better products. We are working hard to increase the diversity of our team wherever we can and we actively encourage everyone to consider becoming a part of it.
