Senior Software Engineers at BARK own the design and implementation of new features and improve our current codebase. You are enthusiastic about optimizing large scale operations as well as building intuitive, friendly interfaces. You get a thrill from applying creative problem solving to balance ambitious timelines with technical rigor. You know that the success of the company lies in the strength of the team and you are excited to collaborate and mentor.

You love that the code you deploy results in tails wagging across the country.

  • Technical: Build beautiful, intuitive user interfaces and build on our backend services to access customer data.
  • Feature Delivery: Write well-designed, testable and reliable code as you ship features that make dogs happy, and your coworkers too.
  • Code Quality: Maintain a highly responsive system by ensuring code quality, stability and scalability. You are pragmatic, not dogmatic.
  • Leadership: You are someone who people want to work with. It's not only that you have great ideas, it's that you make other people better too.
    • You have 3-5 years of full-stack web-development experience using Ruby on Rails in a professional environment
    • You have delivered and maintained production software in a team environment
    • You can design data models and optimize queries
    • You write tests early and often and enjoy working in a CI/CD environment
    • You care about delivering a good customer experience and align your code to that
    • You are comfortable with diving in to understand and build on an existing codebase
    • You value your own time and others' and find solutions to optimize it
      This position is a full-time, salaried position. BARK currently has offices in NYC, Seattle, and Columbus, Ohio, but for the right candidates working remotely is also an option. We offer health insurance for both you and your pup, 401k, wonderful team lunches, cold brew on tap, and a dog to pet anytime you wish.

      About Bark

      Here at BARK, we love dogs and their people. We're looking to make all dogs happy throughout the entire world (we're not kidding). Think Disney for dogs -- we make magic for dogs and their people through our products, events, and experiences.

      Our ambition level is high, the opportunity is huge, and our love for dogs is through the roof! We launched in 2011 with BarkBox, a monthly-themed subscription of all-natural treats and clever toys. Since then, we've shipped more than 70 million toys and treats to the dogs across the world and use all of that direct customer feedback to inform new initiatives and ways to make magic between dogs and their people. We've since expanded into other offerings as well, as we aim to become THE Dog Company for every family with a belly-scratch-loving, interspecies family member.
