What does a day look like in my role?
Senior Full Stack Developers at Leadpages are an expert in, and responsible for a part of our technology stack. Based on their focus, they may share ownership of an entire API or set of Python API microservices and their repositories, or a Javascript application and a collection of shared libraries. They may also be responsible for codebases in other languages or stacks, establishing more breadth in their expertise.

They are expected to be able to take anything from tasks to full features/stories, and even smaller self-contained epics/projects and drive them to completion, collaborating with the product or other teams in order to ensure stakeholder needs are met.

Senior Full Stack Developers are also expected to be able to rotate into on-call periodically, and develop enough of a breadth of knowledge of our ecosystem to do basic issue triage, pulling in other engineers or departments as needed for resolution in an emergency.

In order to keep learning, and support other engineers’ learning, Senior Software Engineers will spend time pair programming, as well as some teaching or mentoring where there’s interest.

As a Senior Software Engineer at Leadpages, you will have the opportunity to build, develop and test features for our SaaS applications used by thousands of users. Our engineers are experts in their craft and are always striving to improve and develop new skills. You will work both on a team of engineers for large projects, and solo for bugs and smaller tasks.
