Shoelace is slowly growing our engineering team. We're focused on making sure we build the right things, at the right time, for the right ecommerce merchants. We're also trying to make sure that our engineering and process gets to 💯. Hence the "slowly". If you can help with that, the area we need the most right now is in easing the load for our senior engineers. Not just to build more product but to make sure we do everything a little better. If you want to take responsibility and help the team be the best it can be, we want to hear from you.

When you apply, make sure to tell us about something you've contributed on that's in production and being used.

### What does Shoelace do?
Shoelace builds tools to help marketers tell better brand stories. The best intro into our approach and methodology is here: shoelace.docsend.com/view/y4njthg

But in short, at Shoelace we believe retargeting doesn't have to repetitive, intrusive or annoying. The best ad experiences build connections, tell a story and strengthen the brand. We're building the tools that make that easy.

- Make pragmatic trade-offs every day, weighing up complex business needs against technical realities
- Help level the team up with your contributions

- Work on a small team shipping code often
- Develop in some combination of NodeJS, C#, MongoDB, MSSQL, Docker, Redis, cloud infrastructure, CI/CD pipelines and React
