We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our engineering team at CraftJack to help us build great products.  We will look to you as an important member of our small team as we tackle important challenges to keep our technology ahead of the curve.  CraftJack’s products reach millions of consumers and professionals in the ever-expanding, increasingly competitive home improvement services industry. We are a fully remote company and if you’re ready to work with a dedicated team focused on cutting edge technological solutions, please join us!.

What is the vision for this role?

We are a small team of experienced Engineers (software, QA, and DevOps) and are looking for someone with expertise in how we can better support our business through software craftsmanship.  CraftJack is growing and we want to tackle problems before they happen and invest in our future.  A great fit for this role is someone who is ready to take an active part in architecting and building solutions using SOLID principles that can help our team produce software more efficiently and reliably. 

What are we looking for?

  • 5+ years of software development experience focused on application development.
  • An in-depth understanding of Microsoft web application stack; .NET Core and C#.
  • A solid understanding of unit testing, TDD, and automated testing. We can’t stress this enough!
  • Experience working with databases using SQL and migrations (no stored procedures).
  • Experience developing for distributed systems (NServiceBus), message queues, caching (Redis) and web sockets (SignalR).
  • Comprehensive understanding of AWS tools like Lambda, API Gateway, and DynamoDB.
  • Familiar with one or more CSS, HTML, and Javascript frameworks -- preferably Bootstrap and Foundation.
  • Experience using a Javascript client-side MVC/MVVM framework -- preferably Angular2 or React.
  • Familiar with software development methodologies; including Agile and Scrum.
  • Have the skill and patience to craft semantic HTML and CSS to meet responsive design and cross-browser requirements.
  • Exposure to using source control systems and workflows in a small team environment - preferably with Git and Gitflow.
  • Be driven and positive with the ability to thrive and deliver in a fast-paced, innovative and creative environment.

What is the team like?

  • We want to use the best tool for the job… if there is something better then let's try it.
  • We are Agile and work in two-week sprints.
  • We are disciplined when it comes to testing. We have a large suite of automated tests covering our web, backend, and mobile applications. 
  • We want to have fun at work. Work hard, play hard.
  • We spend time to train new people who join the team and adjust how we work together via retrospectives.

What would be my career trajectory?

As a company we have a very flat hierarchy.  Your direct manager will be Ryan Ferretti (https://www.linkedin.com/in/ryanferretti) and his boss is our CEO, Chris Brown (https://www.linkedin.com/in/brown784).  If you care about building experience by releasing great software, accomplishing goals, and learning new things, this is the right place for you.  If you care about titles and meetings, this is not the right place for you.  Our belief is there will always be “the next job” so push yourself to learn and grow in the time you are here.

What is work like at CraftJack?

CraftJack is an emerging online referral service that is an operating brand of HomeAdvisor, the leading online marketplace helping homeowners and home service professionals connect.

Think of CraftJack as a startup without all of the risks: no late (or missed) paychecks, no need to find your own expensive health insurance plan, no working for a tiny fraction of your market value. It also means no corporate atmosphere with strict dress code, no watered-down coffee, and no stuffy bureaucracy to drown out your ideas. We value every team member and if we hire you, it’s because we think you can do great things with us.

We aren’t going to sugar-coat everything.  We have our challenges like every other business.  Where we separate ourselves is having the willingness and motivation to take our challenges head-on before they grow.

Where is the office?

We are a fully remote company but also understand the importance of having a space to collaborate when necessary.  We have a space in the Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago that we will be moving into once the pandemic subsides.  We have been fully remote since March 2020, so this role will continue to be remote first.  We have a take-as-you-need vacation policy because we know how important it is for everyone to be refreshed when they come to work.

Compensation & Benefits:

  • The salary band for this position ranges from $95,000 - $115,000 based on experience and interview performance. Compensation may vary based on factors such as cost of living
  • This position will be eligible for a competitive year end performance bonus
  • Full medical, dental, vision package to fit your needs
  • Flexible vacation policy; work hard and take time when you need it
  • Pet discount plans & retirement plan with company match (401K)

If you’re excited about joining a collaborative, high-impact team, send us your resume to start the conversation.

An Insider's view of CraftJack

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Our ethos on work-life balance and productivity today is all about performance and delivering results; less about the hours and more about the quality of the work itself. We prefer working smarter than working longer, often resulting in individuals curating their own day with enough overlap for collaboration while affording personal flexibility.

Noah Mishkin

Founder & VP of Operations

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

After receiving feedback and questions about certain projects, efforts, initiatives, and how we prioritize product releases, it was clear we could use more information. This launched a new internal video series called, "What Is That?!", 13-minute interviews explaining how efforts align with core values, corporate goals, and customer-centric care.

Noah Mishkin

Founder & VP of Operations

How does the company support your career growth?

Individuals have opportunities to grow here at CraftJack with access to tuition reimbursement, certificate programs, and internal mentorship. We host quarterly business reviews which include a workshop focused on personal and professional growth. We've seen careers grow from part-time internships to full-time new management positions.

Noah Mishkin

Founder & VP of Operations

What is your vision for the company?

I see CraftJack continuing to do what we are best known for: questioning every precedent, principle, and asset within our industry, staying true to our customer's best interest while exploring new technology driven innovation to improve on the successful developments we've already created.

Noah Mishkin

Founder & VP of Operations

What are some things you learned at the company?

A key fundamental factor in my leadership style is empathy. It's less about making decisions based on what I've read or heard works, rather, determining what I myself would and would not appreciate as an employee. Additionally, learning how to be present in a moment and listen well is often far more effective than providing advice.
