About the Role 

As a Full Stack Developer on our Personas teams, you’ll have the opportunity to grow and evolve a brand-new product, but also to see your creation used by lots of customers very quickly. This brand-new product will face enterprise-scale usage very early in its life cycle. We need to nail scale right out of the gate. The design challenges are meaty, and you’ll be expected to work closely with design and research to iterate on a fast-changing product. You’ll also need to understand and articulate the trade-offs between new functionality and stability. You can persuade all involved to make the right architectural choices for the long-term technical and financial health of the product.

What?

  • [WEAR THE CUSTOMER’S SHOES] We’ll create beautiful and intuitive customer interfaces for what is essentially a visual programming language for marketers
  • [DRAW THE OWL] Iterate on Personas Journey Orchestration’s web experience in both big and small ways. Build new features and improve performance, usability, and accessibility
  • [BE BOLD] We load test our pipelines to hundreds of thousands of messages/sec. We then optimize the system’s cost to achieve strong unit economics
  • [EMPOWER OTHERS] You're empathetic, patient, and love to help your teammates grow

Why? Imagine a platform that can take the hundreds of thousands messages entering Segment’s pipelines every second, add in a new identity graph, and overlay multiple high speed realtime and batch databases — and you have the Personas platform. Since we released it a few years ago, we’ve built several successful products on top of the Personas platform — Segment Audiences for realtime audience management, Segment Traits for computation, and Profile API for realtime personalization. Now, we’re making the next one.
