Senior Software Engineer

MikMak is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our growing Product team. This role is about sharing ownership of a growing codebase, along with many of our infrastructure and third party software decisions.

We use Javascript as our main language at MikMak, with Vue.js powering our front end experiences, and Node.js running our backend & services. We rely on Firebase, Google Cloud and AWS to host and manage most of what we do.

The core MikMak experiences are web applications, and this is a large part of what engineering is working on. This can range from new feature development, product enhancements, bug fixes, or QA testing. These experiences are built using Vue.js, and are tested on many different devices and environments.

To support these experiences - along with the MikMak team - we also build internal applications & services. These might range from dashboards to make life easier for our Client Success team, to an automated email report service for our clients.

MikMak is an exciting, nimble startup that is growing quickly. If you like being part of an early stage team, are excited by ambiguity, and love taking ownership, you could be a great fit for this role!
