The Role

As Senior Software Engineer in Whispir you will be working in one of our Agile development teams:

Within these responsibilities, the three promises for the Senior Software Engineer role are:

The Tech

We have a burgeoning Javascript/Typescript codebase for our newer software - both on the frontend (React) and our backend.  We also have a legacy Java EE stack that we’re evolving and factoring away from.  

You will know at least one of these ecosystems and one or two others to a deep level. You should be familiar with various AWS cloud services such as EC2, EKS, MSK, RDS, Lambda.  Experience with automation tools (such as terraform, cloudformation) and CI/CD processes is a must.  

Our Values

Product Engineering at Whispir is committed to building the best customer experiences.  We define, together, clear goals and boundaries for your team, so that you can become more effective and efficient.  We support you to make decisions quickly and keep moving forwards.  We understand we don’t get everything right, but we measure, error-correct, and evolve through incremental improvements.  We want to enable autonomy and trust in (and between) our teams - you are the expert!  We measure our impact, so we can understand how much value we're adding.

We value collaboration over competition and compassion over judgement.  We believe that good culture requires good leadership and for this position we are looking for leaders who live our values. We should enjoy coming to work every day and extend that opportunity to our coworkers.  

The Whispir platform touches the lives of millions of people every day. We cover a wide range of use cases from large-scale crises communication to helping out small businesses with managing their customers and suppliers.
