We are Webflow.

We envision a world where everyone can create powerful, flexible websites, and apps as easily as they create documents today. Because the only thing better than the internet is an internet we can all create for.


Why Join?

At Webflow, we have two missions. One for the world, and one for us. We want to empower everyone to create for the web — and lead impactful, fulfilling lives while we do it. -We are a remote first team and have been since we were founded. There is also a headquarters in San Francisco if you feel like you thrive more in an in-office environment. -We cover 100% of a platinum-level, $0 deductible health plan, including dental, vision, and life, for you and your dependents. \*\*US based team members only. -You’ll get $200 a month to spend on health and wellness — whatever that means to you. Whether it’s new hiking shoes, a meditation app, or a fancy sound machine for better sleep. -Remote Webflowers get $380 per month for remote work expenses, like a coworking membership, snacks and coffee, or to cover your internet bill. -You’ll get up to $1,000 a year in skill development reimbursements. 

About this role

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.

We’re adding a Staff Software Engineer to our team to lead and manage strategic initiatives to improve and scale our backend services, while helping to mentor other members of our engineering team. 

About the role

  • Location: Remote
  • Full-time

As a Staff Software Engineer, you’ll:

  • Architect, design, and implement scalable backend services
  • Cross-collaborate with software engineers, product managers, designers, and QA analysts in an autonomous, supportive team environment
  • Build and maintain unit and integration tests
  • Mentor other engineers on best practices, code design considerations, and quality

That said, these role responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. 

And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects directly related to Webflow.

About you

You’ll thrive as a Staff Software Engineer if you:

  • Have shaped the direction, design, and creation of new initiatives through deployment
  • Value testing and documentation equally as much as your code
  • Are comfortable with ambiguity and scoping solutions with your teammates
  • Have consistently communicated trade offs throughout a project to meet both technical and business requirements
  • Get excited about encouraging and developing other engineers

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
