We’re looking for a Staff Software Engineer to join our Webflow Labs team. Webflow Labs is a team within Webflow building new products focused on pushing the boundaries of visual development. We’re hiring technologists and engineers to focus on prototyping new software development workflows and services. One example of this is DevLink, a new tool that enables Webflow to generate React UI components. If you have a passion for rapid prototyping, building novel web services, and talking to customers, then we want to hear from you!

About the role

  • Our cash compensation amount for this role is estimated at $151,000 - $208,000 for most locations and $168k - $231k for locations with a higher cost of labor. All figures cited above are in $USD or its equivalent in local currency. Total compensation is based on several factors, including but not limited to role, level, professional experience, qualifications, and location.

As a Staff Software Engineer, you’ll … 

  • develop new capabilities and extensions on top of the core Webflow product.
  • design, scope and implement solutions using a combination of technologies like Javascript, React.js, Node.js, GraphQL, MongoDB, AWS.
  • work closely with your team to identify high-impact opportunities.

  • engage in rapid feedback cycles from customers.

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

  • Have experience working across the full software engineering stack - Frontend, Backend & Infra
  • Have experience with cloud services: edge compute, CDNs, distributed data stores

If you share our values and enthusiasm for empowering the world, we’d love to review your application! We promise we do take the time and care to review every application we receive. However, as much as we wish we could interview everyone who submits an application, we cannot guarantee an interview or feedback due to the unprecedented volume of applications we are receiving today. We are rooting for you, and hope you do consider applying.

If you are extended an offer, that offer may be contingent upon your successful completion of a background check, which will be conducted in accordance with applicable laws. We may obtain one or more background screening reports about you, solely for employment purposes.

Webflow requires all new employees to submit proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status as a condition of their employment.  As such, your failure to timely provide such information, upon Webflow's request, may result in the revocation of your offer or the termination of your employment with Webflow, as applicable. 

At this time, Webflow does not require fully remote employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  However, you must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination to work out of any Webflow office, visit an office, or attend any in person work events, including company off-sites, company sponsored social gatherings, and meetings.  As such, at this time, we will only consider individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for roles which require any in person work.  If, due to the nature of your role, you are at any time during your employment required to work in person, but you are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, subject to applicable regulations, your employment may be terminated.  

We are committed to maintaining a safe and inclusive workplace, and our vaccination policy will evolve in response to the changing risks and regulations associated with COVID-19.
