Job Description

Whisbi’s Live Engagement Platform helps brands maximize website value and convert more web visitors into customers by engaging & guiding them at every step of the customer journey. Our platform combines, live video, chat, voice, web/content sharing, and chatbot. We are transforming Digital Sales & Marketing through differentiating online customer experiences that improve Live Engagement and increase sales conversion. Whisbi has been shortening sales cycles for large enterprises for over ten years, by delivering Live Engagement solutions that engage customers in the exact moment a sales decision occurs.

About the role

As a Senior Backend Software Engineer (Node.js), you will help Whisbi’s software achieve the best quality and reliability. You will make intuitive high-level decisions for software development. You will see the “big picture” and create architectural approaches for software design and implementation to guide the development. You are a team player who loves to teach and learn.

About the team

At Whisbi we care about shipping real value to customers fast. We do this with an integrated product/engineering team that is lean, powerful, and fast.

What kind of people are there?

Most team members have serious experience in startup engineering. It is a different game, and we are shipping at least once a week to full-enterprise systems. We own our responsibilities, check our own work, and make sure experiences are reliable.

Many have 10+ years of experience and have owned their own companies. These are the people who have enough battle experience to architect solutions that can be built fast, destroyed safely, and scaled easily when the time comes.

All are amazing learners and flexible problem-solvers.

How do we work?

We always work with well-validated strategic customer problems and solutions that have already been experienced tested with rapid prototypes in the field - before we consider building.

We apply SOLID principles in both engineering and product design.

We combine strategic viewpoints in product and engineering to reduce scope, so our tactical executions are always small and rapid. Quick to deliver, quick to learn, so as a team we course correct early.
