Abstract is a design workflow platform for teams to version, manage, and collaborate. Our company’s mission is to dramatically improve the productivity, transparency, and impact of Design.


About the Role

At Abstract we develop high quality web applications that help transform the attribution, connection, and measurement of Design to increase its impact. We are looking for a Senior Full Stack Software Engineer to join Abstract, in pursuit of shipping high quality software. 

Join us and have an impact that’s felt and experienced by designers all over the world. Do you crave the autonomy to ship high quality software with peers in engineering, product design, and product management? If iteration and craft are values you are drawn to, if impacting the world of design through a product focused on connection, or if you love to create excellent software with some of the finest engineers and designers around, please consider this role!

We're interested in your ability to solve technical problems, support fellow team members, and partner with teams across the organization in a pursuit of transforming the way designers work. Shipping high quality code, mentoring those around you, and communicating with peers often. Expertise in JavaScript, React, and Ruby is a requirement. Familiarity with Objective-C and Go is beneficial as well. We're very interested in your ability to learn and solve problems as well as your comfort level with learning new languages.

What you’ll do:

  • Discuss, plan, and build new features using Ruby, JavaScript, and React.
  • Triage and fix bugs, often working directly with our customers. 
  • Participate in peer code reviews through pull requests to make sure we're moving fast while also maintaining quality code bases. 
  • Participate in design reviews and give feedback. 
  • Contribute to server-side APIs — through code, peer review, or both — that are needed to ship features. 
  • Participate in our agile methodology (Sprint Planning, Demos, Retrospectives).

 What you’ll bring:

  • Experience building applications using Ruby, JavaScript, and React.
  • An analytical mindset. You think critically about your work, ask questions, approach problems from different angles, and are excited to improve the product. 
  • The ability to make things happen even when requirements are a little fuzzy. 
  • A customer-centric lens. You look forward to working with them so we can identify pain points and create solutions. 
  • Enthusiasm to problem solve. When things inevitably break, you eagerly jump in to diagnose and fix the core issues. 
  • Clear communication skills. You can clearly discuss and explain complex technical topics. 

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience working with Objective-C and Go
  • Worked on small teams and are comfortable wearing multiple hats
  • Experience working in an agile environment
  • Mentorship experience


You'll meet with a member of our People Team to start, then our Engineering Manager and a few cross-functional folks from across Product, Design & Engineering. After this we'll set up either a pairing session or take home exercise (your choice) for the technical interview. Finally, you'll meet our VP of Engineering.


At Abstract, we are actively working to build a diverse and inclusive organization. Here, diversity includes age, economic class, educational background, ethnic variance, familial status, gender, gender expression, gender identity, marital status, national origin, religious affiliation, sex, sexual orientation, transgender status, or veteran status.
