Software Engineer

Umbel is a high-energy, fast-growing startup based in Austin, Texas. We help the most admired brands in sports and entertainment find new fans, drive highly relevant interactions with them, and increase ticket and sponsorship revenue. With unprecedented first-party audience insights, teams, venues and brands keep audiences engaged before, during, and after live events. In 2018, Umbel merged with MVPindex.

We are seeking a Software Engineer that loves to build incredible things. This position will focus on the web application level of our stack.

This position will work closely with all members of the product and engineering team in a collaborative environment to design and implement new products and features. We focus on writing highly performant code, love finding creative solutions to problems, and obsess over building elegant user experiences. Current development projects include a React-based single-page app used for browsing and visualizing data, an engagement tool for helping our clients build customer-facing experiences for data acquisition, and integrations with client tools such as CRMs and email service providers.

What You Must Have

Ambition and optimism, offset with realism. We are an ambitious startup with big goals. We take big chances and know that optimism and perseverance are the keys to wild success — and we are tested on that daily. If this excites you, great. If uncertainty is uncomfortable, this might not be the right place for you.

Curiosity backed by execution. This is a tech startup, and you should be prepared to geek out on the intricacies of big data. There’s a lot to learn and define, and you will naturally need to be obsessed with staying ahead of the curve. But it doesn’t stop there. You must leverage that learning and turn it into creating amazing experiences both inside and outside of the workplace.

Motivation and determination. Exciting — and daunting — challenges face us every day at Umbel and MVPindex. We excel in the pursuit of challenging goals and are looking for fighters, who go to bed and wake up each day with a fire in the belly.

  • Write high-quality, performant, and reliable full-stack code
  • Rapidly architect, prototype, and build out new features
  • Participate in code reviews
  • Push back, think creatively and have fun building products

What Skills & Experience We'd Like You To Have:

  • Strong understanding of JavaScript and experience with ES2015+

  • Strong CSS skills and familiarity with BEM methodology and preprocessors (e.g. SASS)
  • Webpack or other similar application bundling tools

  • Django or a similar web framework
  • Testing, including unit, performance, and load testing

  • The opportunity to invent new solutions, grow your career and enhance your skill set
  • Option for 100% employer-paid health insurance
  • Unlimited paid vacation policy
