Principal Engineer/Tech Lead – Mission Control

Primary Location: Kirkland, Washington Additional location(s): United States - Remote


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

This is a remote position, so you’ll be working remotely from your home. You may occasionally visit a GoDaddy office to meet with your team for events or offsites.​

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

Join our team:

The Mission Control team is focused on creating a best-in-class experience for managing our smart point-of-sale terminals. Our customers are banks, resellers, and developers who need to remotely manage hundreds of thousands of payment terminals.

We’re a new and growing globally distributed team. Like GoDaddy’s customers, we’re entrepreneurial – we love to build things, we challenge the status quo, and we constantly seek to improve.  The team is empowered to solve problems and innovate as we see fit.

Tech Stack: AWS, NodeJS, Emberjs, MySQL, Kafka, ElasticSearch

In this role you will...

As Principal/Tech Lead, you’ll lead the delivery of projects from end-to-end.  Because the team is growing, this is a great opportunity to grow your leadership skills, to create an impact beyond the team, and become a domain expert in the ecommerce/payments space.  You’ll work with other leaders to drive system improvements, lead innovation projects, and mentor other engineers.  Additionally, you will:

    • Contribute to the architecture and design of new features
    • Review code and design documents
    • Advocate for best practices and standards
    • Mentor junior engineers

Your experience should include...

  • 5+ years experience in NodeJS back-end engineering, systems design, and scalable architecture.
  • 3+ years experience in front-end development and frameworks.
  • Experience with CI/CD systems such as CircleCI, Jenkins, or Github Actions.
  • Recognized as a technical leader on your team.

We've got your back... Enjoy our many benefits (My Wallet), including paid time off, 401k, equity grants and parental leave. Join one of our employee resource groups (Culture). Continue to have a side hustle, if you have one (we love entrepreneurs, remember?). Most importantly, come as you are and make your own way.
