About the Job

Developers at Vendasta work in teams, working with Product Managers and Designers in the creation of new features and products. Our Research and Development department works hard to help developers learn, grow, and experiment while at work. With a group of over 100 developers, we have fostered an environment that provides them the opportunity to continuously learn from each other.

The ideal candidate will have a strong e-commerce background and join our Marketplace products development team. They can demonstrate that they are bright and can tackle tough problems, while also being able to communicate their solution to others. With their experience building e-commerce solutions, they will help our teams as we continue to grow our end to end e-commerce platform. They are creative and can mix technology with the customer’s problems to find the right solution. Lastly, they are driven and will motivate themselves and others to get things done. As an experienced Software Developer, we expect that you will grow into a thought leader at Vendasta, driving better results across our development organization.

We are looking for a candidate who fits one of these personas:

  • The Expert: You are an expert in one of these technologies: Cloud Native Computing, GoLang, or Frontend using Angular. You know the right patterns and techniques to make things simpler for your colleagues and more reliable for our customers.
  • The Mentor: You have experience from delivering high quality solutions. You love to take that experience and level up the intermediate developers around you to help them become senior developers too.
  • The Shipper: You excel at taking the great ideas from nothing to usable prototype. You know which corners to cut now, so that as the idea takes off it will be easy to improve and scale.
  • The Generalist: You have worked on multiple and varied large projects. When there is a tough problem your experience will allow you to find a workable solution, because it is similar enough to something you have done before.


  • Develop software in teams of 3-5 developers, with the ability to take on tasks from the team and independently work on them to completion.
  • Follow best practices to write clean, maintainable, scalable, and tested software.
  • Contribute to the best engineering practices, including the use of design patterns, CI/CD, maintainable and scalable code, code review and automated test.
  • Work collaboratively with Product Managers to design solutions that help our Partners connect digital solutions to small and medium sized businesses.
