Software Engineering, Full-Stack at Gusto

Gusto is fundamentally changing how the world works by empowering everyone to put people first. Gusto reimagines payroll, benefits, HR, and personal finance by automating the most complicated, impersonal business tasks and making them simple and delightful.

We’re looking for talented and motivated engineers across all levels of experience. Gusto engineers own entire features in our system. You'll influence the initial specs for the feature, build/modify the backend APIs (mostly Rails), write the front-end code that consumes said APIs (mostly Backbone.js and React.js), and be responsible for ongoing improvements once the feature is deployed.

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Own what you build as you architect, test, and refine the Gusto platform
  • Tackle a wide variety of technical problems throughout the stack and contribute daily to all parts of our code base, using our development workflow
  • Work with our product and design teams to understand customer pain points, come up with solutions, and then prototype, iterate and launch daily
  • Be surrounded by individuals who are doing the best work of their lives and loving every moment of it

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Passion for creating memorable experiences for customers
  • Interest in technologies such as Coffeescript, Backbone.js, React.js, Ruby, and Rails
  • Appreciation for a test-driven, code review culture
  • Successful track record building distributed, high-throughput applications that scale
  • Experience turning wireframes and mockups into elegantly executed code
  • Well-structured, easily maintainable, well-documented code that balances beauty and pragmatism
  • 4-year degree in Computer Science highly preferred
