The Position

As a front end software engineer, you will be responsible developing websites and applications.

The salary range for this position starts at $110k/year and is negotiable depending on experience.

We invite candidates from Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, North Carolina, Oregon, and Canada.

Our Development Practices

Our backend code is largely written in Perl and Go using PostgreSQL and Linux. Our front end code uses Less, Sass, BEM, Bootstrap, Jade, gulp, and AngularJS; our JS unit tests are written using Jasmine. We maintain high standards for our development practices. All new code is expected to include automated tests run by TeamCity, and all work goes through internal code review on GitHub Enterprise.

Job Requirements

The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate strong experience and knowledge in each of the following areas. We’ll give you a homework assignment that will give you an opportunity to show us your skills.

  • Strong knowledge of JavaScript, including at least one framework such as AngularJS (preferred), Ember, or Backbone.

Junior-level GeoIP Release Engineer

MaxMind is looking for a talented and highly motivated person to help us build, release, and improve our GeoIP databases. This is a great opportunity for someone with some background with Linux and programming who is interested in becoming a software engineer. Our GeoIP data is used by thousands of companies around the world, including most of the world’s most visited websites.

Founded in 2002, MaxMind is an industry-leading provider of IP intelligence and online fraud detection tools. MaxMind is privately held and based in Waltham, Massachusetts.

The Position

Every week we release a few dozen GeoIP databases in various formats. To do so we must prepare the input data, transform it using multiple build steps, and check the quality of the output against the previous release.

As part of the existing process we always look for ways to improve our data quality. We also want to improve the build code and automate the build steps. Ultimately, this will result in a more efficient release cycle.

You will be responsible for both managing the current build process and improving it. This will involve documenting the current build process as you go, using command line tools, maintaining the legacy build code in Perl, and automating the build process, and refactoring and rewriting parts in modern Perl as appropriate.

MaxMind will provide a dedicated, in-office programmer to pair with, give guidance, and review code. We will also provide paid time and a budget for learning opportunities as appropriate.

Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities

Unlike most positions which seek existing ability to do a job, we are looking for someone who can grow into a software engineer.

In particular, we are looking for someone who has:

  • High aptitude with logic and mathematics and the ability to learn new programming languages, including Perl
  • Experience with Linux/Unix, command line tools, and some programming background
  • Comfort working with large amounts of data in sometimes messy datasets
  • A willingness to work with and make improvements to a large, crufty legacy codebase
    • Working at MaxMind

      We're a casual, friendly, results-focused company of about 30 employees. We want you to get things done, but it's also important to have a life outside the office.

      In addition to competitive compensation, we offer excellent medical, dental, vision, life, and short and long term disability insurance, a Safe Harbor 401(k) with employer contribution, FSA/DCA, and transit reimbursement.

      This position requires you to work from our office, which is located near downtown Waltham, MA, outside of Boston, a five minute walk from the nearest commuter rail line and several express bus lines.

      To apply, please email careers@maxmind.com with a resume in PDF format or a link to your resume. All applicants must include a cover letter detailing their interest in the position and highlighting relevant experience.
