Who is Litmus?

Litmus’s email creation, testing, and analytics platform empowers marketers, designers, and agencies to confidently deliver quality, brand-aligned communications that delight and engage consumers. Over the last 10+ years, we’ve built a reputation as thought leaders and one of the most trusted solutions in the industry, and it shines through our customers – all 250,000 of them, representing the world’s top brands in tech, banking & finance, retail, media, and more. 

And with our newest acquisition of Kickdynamic, an AI-driven content automation solution, we are now the leaders in email marketing personalization.

How do we do this? It all starts with our people, and a core belief that the talent we seek should be a culture add rather than a “culture fit”.

 

What would I do at Litmus?

We're looking for an experienced .NET Engineer—already eligible to work out of the US or UK (with EST / UTC time zone overlap) to help build the next generation of Litmus tools by expanding our capabilities in offering personalization solutions to our customers.

In your first week, you will:

    • Receive your work computer, credentials, and anything else you might need to get started
    • Set up your new laptop for development and help contribute any improvements you spot back to our onboarding documentation
    • Be introduced to your Engineering Buddy – someone you can lean on for help and pairing
    • Walk through the product/features, various tools, and software we use  
    • Connect via All-Hands meeting with the Infrastructure team
    • Experience little wins. You’ll be set up with some smaller pieces of work to help you find your feet in our codebase

In your first month, you will:

    • Begin a journey around our infrastructure team, getting exposure working in one of our teams to gain experience of our problem domain and our technology stack
    • Become familiar and comfortable with our software development process: Iterative development, writing well-tested code, working in a small development team
    • Ship updates to production

After your first couple of months, you will:

    • Start to feel a bit settled, having developed some good fundamentals for our problem space and gained exposure to how one or more teams work asynchronously. At this point, we’ll look to place you into a specific team, where you’ll have a more focused domain to work in, and a team to support you on your journey
    • Dive into some of the technologies and practices we use as a team. This will include infrastructure-as-code, AWS, and graph databases. You can look forward to learning about and contributing to this tooling as you go

What is Litmus looking for in a candidate?

  • You have a well-founded understanding of C# development. We won't limit to ‘x’ years’ experience, but you should be able to demonstrate your app building skills and confidence with C#. We're happy to introduce you to the other technologies we use

  • You know how to build things from start to finish. You can identify a need, understand its impact, and seek out and work with others to deliver a well-crafted solution in a team environment—asking for help when needed

  • You have good communication skills. As a distributed team, it’s important that we're able to understand each other, verbally and in writing, connecting at the appropriate level of abstraction. You communicate clearly and with empathy, whether you’re discussing refactoring options with a developer, or working with a designer to understand user experience

  • You write clean, thoughtful code. Our code is the home that we live in every day. You enjoy putting effort into crafting understandable and well-tested code, to make everyone’s shared development experience more enjoyable

  • You are eager to collaborate, learn and teach. Our Engineering team is friendly and supportive of each other, and we look for opportunities to learn from each other’s experience

  • You are an experienced engineer.  You feel comfortable within the .NET ecosystem and are eager to jump in and help solve problems.  An ideal role would include regular opportunities to learn and grow within an experienced team


Not sure if you meet all the requirements?
Please apply! We know there is no job description that can measure a person’s attitude, aptitude, or amplitude (the ability to turn it up a notch) and highly encourage you to apply. 

Our approach is shaped by a strong respect for each individual. This applies to every aspect of employment – from equitable wages, work-life balance, the freedom to be your whole self, to equal opportunities for growth and development at Litmus. We believe wholeheartedly the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
