Workshop is an internal marketing platform that helps internal comms teams create, send, and measure multi-channel campaigns. Workshop is a fast growing, venture-backed startup based in Omaha, Nebraska. Omaha-based candidates are preferred but will consider remote within ± 2 hours CST for the right candidate.

👀 What we’re looking for:

  • A passion for building and maintaining quality user experiences on the web at scale.

  • Strong understanding of modern software development methodologies
  • Deep knowledge and experience of object oriented programming in duck typed languages like Ruby or Python. Deep experience with Ruby on Rails is preferred -- we use Ruby on Rails to power our backend platform (and we use Vue on the frontend).
  • Experience with SQL database, schema, and query design and optimization. We’re big fans of PostgreSQL.
  • You care about web performance/optimization and treat performance as a feature.
  • Interest or experience in securing web applications is a plus.

💻 You will:

  • Work closely with our product & design team to translate and execute product vision into scalable product.
  • Be a stakeholder in engineering and product strategy -- this isn’t just another place to knock down story points and tickets -- you’ll have meaningful and direct ownership in your work.
  • Have the autonomy to ship code to production regularly and frequently.
  • Develop tested, scalable core product features that are seamlessly integrated with our API driven frontend.
