CircleCI is looking for an experienced full-stack engineer who is passionate about growth engineering and how to engage with users across our platform. You will work closely with product, design, and your engineering teammates to build, test, experiment on, and analyze features that impact CircleCI’s users from onboarding through to engagement and retention.  

To thrive in this role, you are someone who works well with distributed teams and sees collaboration as the key to success.

Work across CircleCI’s entire platform, with particular emphasis on our user interfaces and cloud applications.

Extensive full-stack engineering experience with a focus on front-end development

An eye for detail when implementing complex UI designs.
