Senior Software Engineer - Python / Go (B2B)

Job description

BigCommerce’s mission is to help merchants sell more at every stage of growth, from small startups, to mid-market businesses to large enterprises. We focus on being the best ecommerce platform so our customers can focus on what matters most: growing their businesses.

We are equally passionate about growing our employee’s careers and providing them an incredible experience as we rapidly expand across the globe. We are proud to have been  recognized numerous times  for our product and workplace culture. We empower our people and customers to build, innovate and grow, so together we can redefine the ecommerce industry.

BigCommerce , named a "Great Place to Work" in Australia 2024, is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our Sydney development team.

The B2B team is looking for a Senior Software Engineer who want to make an impact at every level of society by powering innovators, creative thinkers, entrepreneurs, and business owners around the world to be successful at each stage of their business growth.

**To be considered a candidate you must be located in Australia**

** Work Authorization Visa Sponsorship cannot be provided**

What you’ll do:

Our team’s core programming languages include Python, TypeScript and recently adopting Golang, but we’re more interested in your problem-solving skills and your willingness to learn than your specific experience.

We work closely with other engineering teams, product owners, designers, business representatives and external partners to build a robust e-commerce platform that enables our customers to grow their businesses and our technology partners to build robust integrations and enhancements on top of our APIs. We have a team of people at different levels and with different expertise and we work to iterate, learn, and build great software together.

Who are you :

  • You’re a trusted professional with at least 3 years of experience building amazing products. You have ideas and opinions and you’ve tested and refined them through your work
  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, MIS or related equivalent experience
  • You have a solid understanding of modern programming and design principles. You write tested, maintainable code that you are proud of and you are committed to keeping code quality high.
  • You are passionate and knowledgeable on modern technologies and tools, without being biased toward a specific technology. You’re more interested in finding the right tools and patterns for the job.
  • You’re an excellent communicator. You can explain not just your ideas, but the reasons behind them, and you’re comfortable to do that in person, over Slack or email, or in a code review.
  • You lead by example. You own your work, and hold yourself responsible for results. You might still be developing your leadership qualities, but you get stuck in and aim to inspire the people around you. 
  • You love to teach as well as to learn. You don't hesitate to ask for help and are always ready to provide help when needed because you want the whole team to grow.
  • You enjoy your work and the team you work with. You think terrible puns are funny and you would poke fun at your manager because they can’t spell. 

Our Hiring Processes Might Include

  • Recruiter phone screen
  • Hiring manager screen
  • Code Assessment
  • Final Stage / Team Cultural

Compensation:   Base Salary, Plus Super, Plus Equity
