About the role


DataCamp is looking for a passionate and ambitious Growth Software Engineer to join our multidisciplinary team.

You will be closely working with a data scientist, a growth marketer, a product manager, and another engineer to achieve that goal. 

Responsibilities

  • Own the implementation and split-testing of high-impact features across multiple different microservices built with Rails & React
  • Work across multiple applications owned by other engineers without hindering anyone else’s productivity

The ideal candidate

  • Should have a clear understanding of standard web development processes and best practices
  • Is a strong communicator who can explain technical concepts in an understandable manner
  • Is comfortable rapidly writing throwaway code that gets the job done -- even if it’s not well-optimized, well-tested, or well-architected
  • Cares more about the business impact of the work than the elegance of the technical solution
  • Must be detail-oriented, self-organized and capable of tracking multiple tasks simultaneously

What will make you stand out

  • Having a working knowledge of A/B testing fundamentals
  • Awareness of the potential web performance implications of running A/B tests
  • Deep knowledge of Ruby on Rails
  • Strong grasp of ES6 and JavaScript fundamentals
  • Past experience working in product, design, or technology education

What's in it for you?

  • Competitive salary and stock options at an early stage company
  • 100% of medical and dental insurance premiums paid
  • Flexible hours
  • International company retreats every 6 months
  • Work with a great team (everyone says this, but we’re serious)
