Full-Stack Engineer (Multiple Positions)

Austin, TX

About Convey’s Engineering Team

Our Engineering team believes in collaboration, flexibility, and humility above all. There are no silos of information — we all work on the platform together, and we take ownership for coding and maintaining all of our work. This means that we only focus on writing clean, effective code that will stand the test of time. In this role, you’ll be focusing on the entire product lifecycle, and you’ll provide insight into idea generation, design, prototyping, planning, building, shipping, operating, and maintaining our product.

We code — a lot, and we ship and continuously iterate on products that have a direct impact on creating value for our customers, our users, and ourselves. Learn more about the Convey team on our about page or learn more about our engineering philosophies, tools, and challenges on our blog.
