Lifeway is hiring a
Remote Senior Full Stack Software Engineer

📍 Remote

This is a position on the Digital Experience Commerce team which builds and maintains Lifeway’s website lifeway.com. We are looking for a highly collaborative Remote Senior Full Stack Software Development Engineer who is motivated and interested helping us build and enhance our website to provide the best experience for our customers. The ideal candidate is a full stack developer proficient in working in React/Next.js as well as in GraphQL/AppSync in order to integrate with our Commerce microservices and other APIs. 
About the team and software   
The Digital Experience Purchasing team currently consists of 8 to 10 engineers and primarily operates as two squads that focus their engineering efforts on our backend Commerce Domain (Commerce Engine and Commerce Domain microservices) and our website (React/Next.js/TypeScript/AppSync/CloudFront). We also collaborate with other teams including our UX research and design team to provide the functionality needed for our customers.   
Our team supports the full stack of applications we create, and team members participate in on-call rotations for our applications. We build cloud-native solutions whenever practical and are avid users of AWS technologies.  We leverage Infrastructure as Code for our CI/CD methodology using AWS CDK. 
Our tech stack is React/Next.js using TypeScript which leverages a GraphQL API managed via AppSync in AWS.  We have integrated with a headless CMS provider (Contentful) and a leading search provider (Algolia).  However, we are always exploring new technologies and how we can use them to benefit Lifeway’s mission of designing trustworthy experiences that fuel ministry.   
About the role   
You will primarily design and implement solutions which will integrate our backend services into our Next.js website using GraphQL/AppSync while also helping to create reusable React Components. You will work independently on deliverables but will have multiple peers working in the same technology stack. You will help provide mentoring to other team members and participate in peer Code Reviews.  As a member of our frontend team, you will be well-versed in React design patterns; and you will regularly work with staff and principal engineers along with your team members in highly collaborative problem solving, sophisticated design, and delivering resilient and quality software that tens of thousands of churches and individuals rely on every week.  
Why Lifeway?
