Job Details

OneSignal has a lot of the great tech startup qualities you'd expect, but we don't stop there. Our massive scale and small team, emphasis on healthy life balance and kindness in all our interactions, and focus on ownership and personal growth make OneSignal a uniquely great place to work.

Our product engineering group builds our main product interface (https://www.onesignal.com) and API. With over 9 billion messages sent each day and over 1 million users, our small team’s work makes a massive impact. We tackle challenges at the intersection of engineering and product development, like notification authoring for over a dozen different platforms and multiple mediums (push, in-app, SMS, and email) and intelligent message delivery customized to each recipient.

Our team engineering process is extremely lightweight (inspired by the original Agile Manifesto), driven by clear ownership, and built for learning. We work closely with our product and design teams throughout the development... process and opt for collaboration over hand-offs. As part of our team, you’d help build the technical foundations for great new features and drive those features from inception through completion.

We've found product-market fit, we’re now building the systems we need to scale our product and productivity for the future. That means a core part of our short term work is remodeling our early systems for the long term by paying down technical debt and putting maintainability before magic. If this sounds like a good challenge, you'll find constant support from your peers up through executive management. All our managers are highly technical and know that great engineering is the key to our continued success.

We view software engineering as a team endeavor, and partake in fun and collaborative engineering practices like technical tea times, pair and mob programming, and hobby/game nights—including work-hour Game Times.

In a typical month, a Senior Product Engineer at OneSignal might:

  • Work with product, design, and stakeholders throughout the company to understand our strategy and business context, then communicate it to product engineering team members to provide context for their work and capture feedback.
  • Mentor engineers you support to ensure they have a clear career growth path and the resources and opportunities they need to capture it. Provide and solicit regular feedback to help them achieve their goals.
  • Ensure we maintain a high standard on all our work by reviewing tasks & occasional PRs, guiding folks as needed to ensure work management consistency and technical excellence.
  • Work closely with managers, technical leads, and product managers to review and prioritize long term investments in our technical and product roadmaps.
  • Help evolve our hiring practices by improving the candidate experience and furthering our efficiency and fairness in identifying key signals in our sessions.
  • Work with our recruiting partners to source new candidates and grow your team, ensuring every new member has a smooth onboarding and is set up for success.

What You'll Bring:

  • A demonstrable ability to communicate clearly and empathetically with folks with varying communication and working styles
  • A passion for mentoring junior through senior level software engineers to achieve technical excellence, grow their skills, and advance their career together
  • Familiarity with modern client-side development (we use TypeScript + React, so experience with that or an equivalent is desired)
  • Familiarity with modern server-side development (we use Ruby, Rails, and Go, so experience with those or equivalents is desired)
  • An understanding of data and performance considerations for high scale applications, and experience guiding engineers in trade offs with a maintainability mindset.
  • 5+ years software engineering experience building consumer or business applications
  • 1+ years management experience supporting a team of software engineers

In keeping with our beliefs and goals, no employee or applicant will face discrimination/harassment based on: race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital domestic partner status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or veteran status. Above and beyond discrimination/harassment based on 'protected categories,' we also strive to prevent other, subtler forms of inappropriate behavior (e.g., stereotyping) from ever gaining a foothold in our office. Whether blatant or hidden, barriers to success have no place at OneSignal
