Senior Software Engineer

Primary Location: Kirkland, Washington Additional location(s): Tempe, Arizona


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 hybrid position. You’ll divide your time between working remotely from your home and an office, so you should live within commuting distance. Hybrid teams may work in-office as much as a few times a week or as little as once a month or quarter, as decided by leadership. The hiring manager can share more about what hybrid work might look like for this team in the future. 

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