About the role

Lob was built by technical co-founders with a vision to make the world programmable. We offer two flagship APIs (print & mail and address verification) that enable companies to send postal mail as effortlessly as sending emails. Lob is venture-backed by the most reputable investors in tech, and we are rapidly growing our team to shape the future of our company and meet the demands of a quickly growing customer base and dynamic product offerings.

If you are looking for a progressive, fun-spirited, and mentally stimulating environment, come join us at Lob!

About The Team

The Dashboard Team at Lob builds and supports the suite of features necessary for enterprises, marketers, and non-technical users to take full advantage of Lob's products without needing to integrate with their internal software. 

As a software engineer on the Dashboard team, your work will enable customers to design their mail visuals, manage millions of sends, and surface valuable analytics about their campaigns. We are looking for a talented software engineer who can see potential in the vision, drive initiatives from scratch, and mentor others on the team.

This is a unique opportunity to join a growing startup and make an incredible impact on the team. Lob’s mission is to turn slow and manual offline processes into timely, relevant and personalized communication channels.

You’ll work with Vue, TailwindCSS, Node, Docker, Postgres, Redis, Netlify, and AWS.  You’ll bring your industry experience to help the team choose which technologies to add, which technologies to keep, and which technologies to consolidate and remove.

As a staff software engineer, you’ll...

  • Work with Product Management and Engineering Leadership to define and plan the biggest team and organizational priorities over the next 6-12 months
  • Work with Product Management and other Engineers to research, design, and implement new capabilities.
  • Create new and support existing functionalities within our Dashboard to create and deliver direct mail, address verification and other offline tasks
  • Shepherd the experience and accessibility of the UI dashboard used by our customers
  • Guide and improve front-end best practices we can follow as a team and propagate across the company.
  • Work with Customer Success and Support to troubleshoot customer issues.
  • Coach and mentor other engineers.

What you will bring to this role...

  • 5+ years of overall experience in full stack focused software engineering roles (range of front end and back end skills, leaning one way or another is okay!)
  • Passion about building product features and making APIs interactively accessible
  • Eager to solve complex problems across teams and architecture
  • Expertise in design patterns and best practices
  • Exceptional collaboration and communication. You know how to balance having strong opinions with actively listening to others. 
  • (optional) Experience with assessing and implementing accessibility features

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that meeting just 50% of a role’s requirements puts you in the running.

Our team loves working at Lob because…

  • Our business model is incredibly sustainable and Lob has thousands of customers ranging from startups to Fortune 100 companies. 
  • We are a growing, dynamic and passionate team headquartered in San Francisco, with team members throughout the US. We give our employees a lot of responsibility and ownership of their work. You will have fun at work while engaging in challenging projects.
