Shogun, and we're on a mission to help people create the best eCommerce experiences in the world.

We were in the Winter 2018 batch of Y-Combinator, we just raised a Series A investment, we have over 14,000 active paying clients, and we're preparing to launch a new product in 2020 (you can read more in Tech Crunch).

Our teams are fully distributed and global (check out our team page)! We have no office, so we are looking for team members that are comfortable with and motivated by the opportunity to work remotely.

You Are...

A Software Engineer in North America or the UK that specializes in Go and brings in a deep understanding of design patterns and data structures.

In This Role You Will...

  • Build robust and scalable software using Go

  • Participate in architectural design discussions and planning sessions

  • Solve technical problems of high scope and complexity

  • Help define and improve internal coding standards

  • Collaborate with Product Manager and other Engineering stakeholders

Requirements

  • Strong proficiency and working experience (3+ years) in Go

  • Experienced in working on a medium-to-large monolithic codebase. You have done more than a simple microservice

  • Comfortable working in highly agile, iterative software development process

  • Strong background in PostgreSQL

  • Working experience in GraphQL

  • Good hands-on knowledge of CI/CD tools

  • Proficiency in the English language, both written and verbal, sufficient for success in a remote and largely asynchronous work environment

  • Self-managing, both in motivation and learning

  • Work in line with our values

Nice-to-Have

  • Experience with Fastly or VCL

  • Knowledge in Ruby, React, PWA

  • Experience with task queueing systems (preferably Faktory)

  • Experience in Google Cloud Platform

  • Experience working with a remote and asynchronous team

We Offer

  • A competitive salary

  • Benefits (vary by location)

  • An environment that cares highly about the quality of the code and good practices. We’ve suffered enough without them!

  • A fully remote work environment - our team is global and has been remote from the very start!

  • Occasionally, we hire on a full time contractor basis to begin with. Team members enjoy the same opportunities for great compensation, full time positions, and consideration, regardless of location.

Our Values

  • Work in the open: Operate with high integrity and choose what's right over what's easy. Be transparent as a company and with each other.

  • People are People: Treat yourself, colleagues, and customers with dignity, empathy, and respect. Start from a presumption of positive intent.

  • Win and grow together: Strive to be the best, individually and as a team. Support and encourage each other. Seek opportunities for growth.

What is your Interview process like?

The interview process is generally 3 or 4 video conference interviews. For many positions we will also ask for 3 references, and contact all of them. Some roles have a paid test component (i.e. design test for UI designers) or a short contract period (i.e. 1-2 weeks engineering contract work at a premium hourly) before final decision. The interview process is generally 1-3 weeks depending on the complexity of the role. If we end up passing on someone’s candidacy, they will receive a polite email notifying them of our decision. For more sensitive circumstances, or situations where we might feel the candidacy may be valid for a future role, we would give a call.

What efforts are you making in terms of increasing diversity & inclusion within your company?

We are a 100% remote, global team that values a high degree of transparency and collaboration. Across the 20 countries where we have team members, we promote an asynchronous environment where people can learn and grow from each other and complement each other's strengths. Shogun is committed to listening and learning from one another and we are continuously growing and making improvements to our efforts around equity and inclusive practices.
