OUR CULTURE

TRUST TO BE TRUSTED: We believe with eyes closed and delegate responsibilities. To be trustworthy, you need honesty, transparency, and consistency in quality and performance. This is the great pillar of all relationships that involve VTEX within and outside the company. We’re trust-first.

BUILD FOR COMMUNITY: It’s all about being ready to grow and reach new levels with others. Have a clear purpose, collective thinking, and a flexible essence, and you’re building for the community. We are global, but we’re audacious enough to aim for the stars.

BE BOLD: Boldness is about challenging the status quo and not being afraid to make mistakes or take risks. We test new alternatives, walk into the unknown and explore possibilities no one thought about. To be bold is to apologize instead of asking for permission.

Our stack consists mostly of .NET for CPU-bound applications, Node.js + Typescript for IO-bound services and a pinch of Golang here and there. On the frontend, we leverage React stuffed with Typescript and served with GraphQL on the side. As an engineer who builds our frontend, you’ll get to:

• Evolve large-scale and resilient microservices with 24/7 uptime
• Design and build low-latency and highly available APIs Depending on your role, you might perform any non-empty combination of these tasks. We also expect and encourage every engineer to join our tech discussions, elaborate processes and build tools that raise the bar of our engineering practices and to take part in the hiring and onboarding of new team members. 

YOU SHOULD APPLY IF

• You are passionate about solving complex business problems with simple and elegant development solutions;
• Working with our tech and learning about commerce sounds exciting;
• You are keen to learn new concepts and not afraid to adapt to new paradigms;
• Working in a team that values initiative and ownership feels right to you;
• You are able to design simple solutions to complex problems;
• You are willing to question and suggest alternatives to existing approaches;
• You are comfortable working remotely and can attend meetings within typical US Eastern time zone working hours. 

 Even though we value familiarity with our technology stack, we don’t require that you have any previous knowledge of it. We’ve found that people who have a solid grasp of fundamental software engineering skills combined with a growth mindset fit in well at VTEX – and all the people we’ve found with this profile proficient in at least one programming stack.
