Minted is looking for experienced full stack web developers (Senior Software Engineer, Digital) to join its Digital engineering team in Kansas City (or you can work remote!). Help Minted build digital products that customers love -- with beautifully designed, delightful, and functional user experiences.
At Minted engineering, we marry design with technology to deliver beautiful, unique products that are co-created by our artist community and our customers. Our engineers take on multiple roles and challenges, and we have a strong culture of mentorship and promoting from within. We are a metrics-driven organization and we work hard to make sure every project we do has a measurable impact. We give attention to our craft, and strive to build software and experiences that shine in their quality, influence on the business, and benefit to our customers. We like to ship early and often and to constantly reduce both the noise of software development and the iteration time toward seeing our work in production.
