Senior Software Engineer - Commerce Risk

Primary Location: Florida - Remote Additional location(s): California - Remote; Illinois - Remote

Location Details: 

At GoDaddy the future of work looks different for each team. Some teams work in the office full-time, others have a hybrid arrangement (they work remotely some days and in the office some days) and some work entirely remotely.

Hybrid-or-Remote:  This position may be a hybrid or fully remote position, as decided by your manager. If designated as hybrid, you’ll divide your time between working remotely from your home and an office location, so you should live within commuting distance. If designated as remote, you’ll be working remotely from your home and may occasionally visit a GoDaddy office to meet with your team for designation. 

This position is not eligible to be performed in Alaska, Mississippi, North Dakota, or the Virgin Islands.
