San Antonio or Austin, Texas
Full-Time Position
Weekly Hours: 40

At BoldBrush, we know that art can transform lives and make the world a better place. That’s why for over a decade we’ve made it our mission is to inspire the world’s artists, collectors and art lovers by connecting them with each other and with great art. We provide the art community with technology that is simple to use, empowering and beautiful. And we back that technology with live support powered by people who are passionate about art and tenacious, ingenious and driven to make every interaction remarkable.

We’re seeking a senior software engineer in the San Antonio or Austin area to help us build our FASO Artist Website application.

You’ll work with our product–development team to build new functionality into our product, and with our customer–support team to resolve issues as they arise. You’ll be required to be creative in your work. We try to keep meetings to an absolute minimum so you can spend your time focusing on what you love to do.

We allow for flexible hours and remote work options, but you need to be in the San Antonio office on a regular basis. You can have a huge impact on the future of BoldBrush. Our stack includes Linux, Windows Server, SQL Server, PHP, Javascript, Memcached, and some legacy classic asp, all running on geographically distributed servers at both AWS and Rackspace.

We are currently looking for software engineers who are eager to solve some hard problems in these areas. The ideal candidate will be able to work well with minimal supervision and be comfortable with working on various layers of a complex system powering thousands of websites.

As a member of the team, you will be working with other engineers with years of startup experience developing and integrating large-scale backend systems. You will build the engine powering highly interactive web applications that support the dreams of thousands of visual artists. Our work environment is relaxed and highly collaborative. If you see yourself working on interesting problems with us, we'd love to meet you.
