Emma is looking for a Senior Developer to join our growing Portland engineering team.

We're looking for someone with a proven track record of building robust, scalable platforms with an eye to finding elegant solutions to complicated problems.

We'd like you to excel in the following areas:

• Python or similar high-level language. You write code that others want to read. Your commit log is a thing of beauty. You dream in closures.
• Strong technical and architecture skills. You're as comfortable sketching the 50,000 ft view as you are tuning the tiniest of details, and you're adept at turning conceptual designs into shipped code.
• A variety of data technologies, both relational and non. You'll know the strengths of each, and when to use them.
• Leading teams and projects. You enjoy collaboration and the opportunities for learning that come with it.

Emma is a Web-based communications service powering the emails and surveys of more than 30,000 small and midsize businesses, non-profits and agencies around the world. We work with national brands like Apartment Therapy and NPR’s Car Talk and local companies like Portland Roasting, the Willamette Week, and Hoyt Arboretum. We’ve also been recently named by Inc. Magazine and Winning Workplaces as a Top Small Company workplace.
