You are energized by sharing knowledge and working closely with a team. You thrive on building a foundation for future products, and implementing solutions in the present. You value programming over specialization, and consider yourself a true generalist.

Our Platform team is looking for a Full Stack engineer to help build the future of VSCO products. You will work with the newest technologies and have the autonomy to create work without being micromanaged. Your voice will be valued in both internal projects as well as in consumer-facing products. We are a tight-knit, collaborative team.

The day-to-day

  • Lead development of new features for the future of the VSCO Platform, including APIs and services
  • Collaborate with people across engineering/creative to deliver and launch projects
  • Help the growth of the platform team by actively participating in code reviews, paired programming, training, and mentoring


  • BS in Computer Science, or equivalent experience
  • 4+ years experience with shipping production code in Go, Node.js, and/or PHP
  • Proficient with web languages and NoSQL databases, Go, MySql, Mongo, Redis and experience with OAuth and RESTful APIs
  • Passionate about beautiful design and strong desire to contribute to a small team with Lean methodologies
  • Ability to think of business concerns beyond engineering and experience working with cross-functional feature teams

Nice to have

  • Knowledge of service-oriented architecture (SOA)
  • Experience with ecommerce — preferably Braintree
  • A personal connection to photography
