Do you believe that creators should have the ability to get paid for the value they give to their fans?

We do, which is why we’re building Patreon, a platform that powers membership services for creators with established followings. Patreon strives to provide creators with insight, education, and tools that make it possible to retain creative control while running their creative business, so creators can focus on creating and energizing their fanbases.

Our user base has doubled in the last year alone, and we have paid over $2 billion directly to creators on our platform. In order to support this level of growth, Patreon is looking for a Software Engineer, Developer Experience.

What you will do:

  • Help build, scale, and maintain the development environment at Patreon
  • Build and maintain tools to improve the development lifecycle
  • Identify opportunities for new processes and solutions, design, and build these solutions
  • Collaborate with other engineering teams to define best practices
  • Work with engineering teams to improve their development processes
  • Research new technologies and prototype solutions to optimize the development lifecycle.

Skills and experience you possess:

  • Have 3 or more years of backend and/or frontend experience
  • Have 3 or more years of experience with testing best practices and CI/CD tools
  • Have 2 or more years of experience with infrastructure automation and configuration management (Ansible, Terraform, or similar)
  • Have 3 or more years of experience with Python and/or JavaScript in a software engineering or adjacent role
  • Have 2 or more years of of experience in Linux system administration and shell scripting
  • Be interested in setting engineering best practices and improving engineering processes

Projects you may work on:

  • Devx: our cloud based development environment.
  • CLIs, and frameworks
  • Testing and CI/CD pipelines
  • Slackbots to automate common tasks
  • IDE and browser extensions
  • Documentation and training efforts

Who you’ll work with:

You’ll join a fast-moving and thoughtful team, many of whom are often creators themselves, full of passion for our product, and pride in the work they do both inside and outside of Patreon.
