This role is a Senior Software Engineer, where you’ll be responsible for determining the best solutions for business problems. You’ll be called upon to use your experience and knowledge to help guide the technical direction of the team. This is a full-stack role, so you’re as comfortable diving in to build a new service as you are adding new user experience. You like to own your infrastructure and are as capable of solving a problem caused by AWS issues as you are writing a new algorithm. If you’re unfamiliar with these or other problems, you’re comfortable searching for a workable solution on your own.

What are the challenges you'll take on?

  • You will deliver powerful services & experiences for the business and end users
  • You will write clean, safe, tested code & leading your team towards the same
  • Own high performance, distributed services
  • Ensure that applications are tested and deployed without human intervention
  • You will grow yourself and shape your team to continue taking on additional responsibility and new challenges

What are we looking for from you?

  • Pragmatism — you’re biased for action, delivering small pieces that grow over time
  • Creativity in problem solving & autonomy
  • You'll be expected to work directly with PMs to design scalable solutions
  • You will independently find opportunities to build tooling to improve the lives of our engineers as well as users
  • You have comfort with multiple languages (our primary languages are Java, Golang, Python and JavaScript), with deep knowledge of two languages (Go, Java, Python, Ruby, JavaScript or similar)
  • You have familiarity with current cloud technologies (AWS preferred)
  • You are familiar with or prepared to learn about:
  • Infrastructure (as code)
  • Databases/data modeling
  • Data warehouse technologies (Redshift, Hadoop or similar)
  • Continuous Integration & Delivery
  • You are capable of learning new topics when unfamiliar
  • You have a desire to learn and grow, push yourself and your team, and share lessons with others

Tryouts are open at Fanatics! Our team is passionate, talented, unified, and charged with creating the fan experience of tomorrow. The ball is in your court now.

An Insider's view of Fanatics

What are some social events your company does?

We try to do several fun things each month. From root beer floats, baking competitions and game nights to potluck lunches, cooking classes, movies, Festivus, birthday celebrations and happy hours. With an office of 30+ people, we try to have a variety of events to cover the different interests in the office.

Angie

QA Manager

What does your typical day look like?

Working at the Fanatics Boulder office makes for a great work day- through the day it's easy to maintain a balance of concentrating on work, communicating with my team, and taking a break for lunch or a walk. I really enjoy being able to work a modern office setting with nice equipment, snacks, and friendly co-workers.

Jeff

QE Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've been with Fanatics 15 months. I've learned three new languages. I became a go-to person in our office for AWS and DevOps skills. I've influenced code quality standards, architecture, and what frameworks and languages we use. We are encouraged to continually learn and grow, and given agency to put our new skills to use in meaningful ways.

Dave

Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When architecting a solution, we allow each team the ability to choose the correct tool for the sitiuation. We do not force them to use any particular languages or technologies. The teams have found that creating lightweight POCs frequently turn into full fledged solutions rather quickly.

Jim

Director, Branded Engineering

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We collaborate using a lot of methods depending on which area of the business that we need to talk to. Most tech focused teams rally around Slack conversations. Discussions outside of the tech team tend to use more traditional channels like email, video, Jira, and Git. People from other offices are also always coming to "visit" us in Boulder.

Manager, Software Development
