Submittable is looking for experienced full-stack engineers to build on our industry-leading platform. Your work will very much drive our product and how people use Submittable. We are a thoughtful, engaged team with diverse interests.
Why we need you
Since our company started 8 years ago, our software has grown and changed to better suit the needs of our customers. We pride ourselves on creating software that is simple to use, but has powerful features that solve problems our customers face.
Our software was originally built with ASP.NET MVC, C#, and SQL Server, and uses many AWS services. We are actively migrating our backend stack to a serverless infrastructure, using .NET Core and Lambda, and heavily leveraging the AWS platform. On the front-end we use React, Redux, and ES6. We adopt modern best practices aggressively.
We have more work to do. We’ve lined up interesting features that will take the company to the next level, but they won’t be easy to build. It will be an exciting challenge, and something you and your teammates can be proud of. We have great engineers here already, but we want to learn from you.
We’ll need you to take a feature from idea to execution, so you need to know how it will work end-to-end. Show us cool ways of solving problems. Spin up new tech where it can make a big difference. Help us direct and amplify the energy of junior developers. Ship quickly and iterate. Make something people want.
Founded in 2010, Submittable is a submission management platform used by 10,000+ clients in over 63 countries, including CBS, MIT, and National Geographic. Started by a novelist, a musician, and a filmmaker who all also happened to be engineers, Submittable is now a rapidly growing company of 70 valued and thriving employees with diverse backgrounds and interests. The software you design will be used by over a million people every month.
Based in Missoula, Montana, Submittable’s office is 1 block from surfing, 7 miles from skiing, and 5 miles from the Rattlesnake Wilderness. If you’re not into sports or the outdoors, many of us have other interests, too--we also have, among our staff, professional musicians, accomplished artists, published writers (even poets!), former chefs, and a quilter who once won third place in the county fair. Our average "commute" time is 10 minutes, with many staff biking or walking to our office in downtown Missoula. Housing costs ⅓ that of NYC and SF (10% of Submittable employees are first-time home buyers). The average TSA wait time at Missoula International Airport is 5 minutes.
We offer highly competitive benefits for full-time employees, including:
- Health insurance, 401K, life insurance, and optional HSA, FSA, and DCA accounts
- Flexible hours, including flexible vacations and sick leave
- Generous paid parental leave policy for mothers, fathers, and adoptive parents
- Discounted fitness memberships, personal development stipends, and book purchase reimbursement
- Involvement in community outreach programs for all employees, including company volunteer outings at local nonprofits
- Fully stocked kitchen with complimentary snacks and beverages for all employees
- Gender-neutral bathrooms with free pads/tampons
As a product used globally, we're very motivated to hire and support employees who are representative of different and diverse backgrounds and experiences, including but not limited to diversity of ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, religion, ability, culture, and socioeconomics.
Thank you for your interest.
