Join the team
We believe if you give a motivated and creative person enough freedom they can do amazing things. We believe a group of these people can change the world. We believe a lovingly crafted product can thrive in a world of mass-produced junk.

Big Cartel is home to nearly a million independent stores around the world, and in the last decade they’ve generated over $1,000,000,000 (yep, that’s a BILLION) in combined sales. On top of that, we have a product used by hundreds of thousands of people every day, and we’re constantly creating new features and marketing plans to inspire and delight them.
We’re looking for an experienced Software Engineer to join our Ruby team. We build Rails apps, traditional and API driven JS apps, to support our artists and enable them to be successful. We deploy frequently. We strive for fast, confidence inspiring test suites. We try not to let a day go by without pairing with one of our co-workers for a few hours to share context, root out a bug, or refactor a scary piece of legacy code. We value effective professional communication.
As a small team we sometimes wear many hats. For this reason adaptable generalists with varying backgrounds are an asset to us. We also feel it’s important to point out the obvious here – there’s a serious lack of diversity in our industry and it really bugs us. That’s why we’re doing everything our small company can do to change that. We hope to continue to build a company whose culture promotes acceptance and embraces how rewarding it is to work for artists of all types all over the world.
While we definitely want your sharp skills, we’re specifically looking for a great teammate who values creativity, respect, and an honest desire to support artists over an impeccable resumé. If you’re hesitating to apply for any reason, don’t. We’re excited to hear from you.
This is a full-time and salaried position that includes all of our awesome benefits like paid family leave, solid insurance, 401(k), and a generous PTO policy (we encourage you to take 4 weeks off!). You can work remotely from anywhere in the United States, but if you want to join us in Salt Lake City we can help with that.
