You’ll be the technical steward of our platform, charged with ensuring our applications, services, APIs, and backend systems are designed for maintainability, scalability, reliability, and growth. 

Mailshake is a profitable, bootstrapped, and fast-growing startup looking to expand our product offering with the feedback of thousands of happy customers.

The ideal Software Architect possesses a unique blend of big picture design thinking and low-level implementation details, with the ability to balance everything in between. This person should have a constant eye on the horizon for what’s coming, but also not lose focus on the day-to-day things that need to get done. This role requires demonstrable knowledge of how to design applications and services for cloud-specific infrastructure, including serverless and container technologies. The Software Architect is expected to write code in some form almost daily; non-coding architects need not apply.
