About CommerceBear

CommerceBear is a multichannel ecommerce enablement platform that makes it easy for home goods manufacturers and wholesalers to sell online.

Job Description

Bear is building the future of furniture by helping merchants sell everywhere. We exist to make it easier for enterprises, SMBs, and family owned businesses to grow and manage their ecommerce on channels like Wayfair, Amazon, Overstock, and more.

The home goods space is undergoing a massive shift from offline to online. We want to be the platform of record that powers a majority of the furniture transactions on the internet. We’re also backed by some of the best individual and institutional investors in the world.

We’re looking for remarkable talent to join us on our journey. Our team is passionate, entrepreneurial, with a strong bias for action. We believe that the only way to build a truly category defining company is to absolutely obsess over your customers.

TLDR; you’re an experienced engineer and love to build software in an agile, fast paced environment.

The Role
As a Sr Software Engineer at Bear, you'll develop and maintain features to deliver on the Bear platform. You’ll be challenged with balancing reliable and scalable code, shipping fast, and shipping often. You will jump right in and start adding real value immediately and learn from and mentor our incredibly talented engineering team. Our engineers are highly proficient in what they do and see opportunity to improve our product everywhere they look and you will be part of prioritizing this work. Everything we do is focused on our users, which means we need to deliver a product that is both seamless and effective. We’re an agile team focused on building out a deep roadmap of important features.

You Will:

  • Write and review a lot of code.
  • Work with third-party marketplace APIs (Amazon, Overstock, Wayfair, and many others).
  • Work with third-party shipping APIs (UPS, FedEx, CEVA, and many more).
  • Work with our Backend Node APIs and Syndication Engine.
  • Work with our frontend Svelte writing custom components from the ground up.
  • Write tests with all of your features.
  • Define the architecture and data patterns used with the team.
  • Champion for our users to make every touchpoint delightful.
  • Fix bugs and deploy hotfixes via our CI/CD pipeline.

About You

  • 4+ years of experience.
  • User obsessed and have a strong eye for detail.
  • Strong coding abilities.
  • Proven ability to learn on the job.
  • Strong understanding of the software development life cycle.
  • Are comfortable taking a feature from idea to production.
  • Can legally be employed in Canada.

Why choose Bear?

  • We are a group of passionate people who are working to solve a fundamental problem
  • We’re growing incredibly fast and ground floor opportunity
  • Flexible work schedule focused on delivery
  • Paid sick days, flexible vacation policy, comprehensive health benefits, and team socials
  • Top of the line hardware to help you build your own (WFH) workspace
  • We care about our culture and core values
