Lead Software Engineer

Date:  Jun 26, 2022

Tunis, TN, 1053

Company:  Vista

Who We Are:

Vistaprint is the industry leader in personalized physical and digital products. We empower over 17 million global customers to make an impression – and we’re fueled by forward-thinking and innovative technology. We encourage our engineers to think like owners – to continue to act small as we grow. Every team builds their own roadmaps, and chooses the programming languages and technologies that suit them best. This helps us have a big impact at the enterprise level, while still feeling small and nimble.


Just last year, Vistaprint generated $1.508B in revenue through customized print products, signage, apparel, websites and more.


Why join the Digital team?

The Digital team at Vistaprint delivers SaaS products that small businesses use to get online and market their business – things like websites, domains, email, social media, and search engine listing tools. We help small businesses build their online identity and engage with their customers across the digital landscape. Our solutions are a strategic mix of world-class partnerships and home-grown products. As with everything else, small business marketing is moving online and Vistaprint Digital wants to propel our existing customers forward and attract a new breed of customers to our platform. We’d love to have you join us too.


No matter where you are in your career, we will give you the support you need to continue growing as you work with fellow engineers, product managers and designers to solve challenging problems using modern tools. In addition to JavaScript, Typescript, React, Gatsby and Java, you will also gain proficiency in dev-ops, working with tools including Kubernetes, Docker, Spinnaker and Amazon Web Services.


How do we spend our days? We spend our days doing great work to help small businesses thrive in a digital world. Working as a team to define the work we need to do to better serve our customers. Writing code instead of navigating bureaucracy. Learning how to use new tools and documenting what we learn. Working alone, in pairs and groups as we see fit. Who are we? We are makers, thinkers, Parkour enthusiasts, gamers, brewers, dancers, musicians, chefs, board game nerds, and sci-fi fans. Join us!



What You Will Do:

  • Lead a squad of five to eight engineers in the design and development of mission-critical software
  • Split your time 40/40/20 between ensuring technical excellence/coding/designing and improving squad processes and practices

  • Knowledge of DevSecOps best practices and experience with CI/CD tools

Why You'll Love Working Here:

Being at Vistaprint means that you don’t see work as just a building, a desk or a manufacturing floor. You see it as a chance to take a step forward in your career journey – and your life. We strive to give you everything you need to learn, grow, and succeed. Through innovation, collaboration, and perpetual exposure to what’s next, we’re always pushing boundaries and broadening our horizons. We embrace the chance to operate outside of our comfort zone to discover what we’re capable of. Some might call that a challenge; we just call it another great day at work.


Remote First-Culture:

In 2020, Vistaprint adopted a Remote-First operating model and culture. We heard from our team members that having the freedom, autonomy and trust in each other to work from home and, the ability to operate when they are most productive, empowers everyone to be their best and most brilliant self. Vistaprint also provides collaboration spaces for team members to work physically together when it's safe to do so or believe in office working will deliver the best results. Currently we are enabled to hire remote team members in over 20 US States as well as several countries in Europe: Spain, Germany, UK, Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Switzerland.


About Us:

As an e-commerce powerhouse, Vistaprint is a dynamic organization that maintains an exciting, entrepreneurial culture. With founder Robert Keane’s return as CEO, we’ve renewed our focus on empowering and helping small businesses. To do this, we create customer value (and delight) through accessible, cutting-edge technology. We thrive on providing opportunities for exploration, collaboration, innovation and growth – for both our customers and our team.
