Who We Are:

Vistaprint is the industry leader in personalized physical and digital products. We empower over 17 million global customers to make an impression – and we’re fueled by forward-thinking and innovative technology. We encourage our engineers to think like owners – to continue to act small as we grow. Every team builds their own roadmaps, and chooses the programming languages and technologies that suit them best. This helps us have a big impact at the enterprise level, while still feeling small and nimble.

Just last year, Vistaprint generated $1.508B in revenue through customized print products, signage, apparel, websites and more.

As part of our cross geographical team of software professionals, you will be tasked with building features that energize and inspire our customers.

  • Collaborate closely with product owners and business stakeholders to overcome complex challenges with innovative technical solutions
  • Communicate cross-functionally with other team leads, product owners, and business partners

Your Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of experience working as a software developer in a fast-paced, technical, problem-solving environment
  • Proven track record of engineering excellence including continuous delivery of high quality, massively scaled, innovative software
  • 2+ years with full-stack software development including front-end frameworks using JavaScript, HTML, CSS, AJAX and some MV* frameworks like React / Vue / Angular / Backbone
  • Mastery of at least one object-oriented programming language (Java, C#, etc.)
  • Cloud experience
  • Experience with Agile development using Scrum or Kanban


Nice to Have:

  • Strong ability to communicate with diverse audiences (including technical, non-technical and senior management)
  • Strong problem-solving skills
  • Excellent collaboration and the desire to work with a cross-cultural team

Why You’ll Love Working Here:

  • Opportunity to work on an extremely collaborative, globally dispersed team
  • Chance to influence and drive decisions around new technologies and how the team works
  • Experience setting architectural and development ideals and standard methodologies
  • Competitive salary + comprehensive benefits
  • Flexible working hours
  • Continuous development opportunities such as trainings and conferences
