We are looking for a Software Engineer for one of our core CMS product teams in central Stockholm, to help us shape the future experiences of Optimizely’s products and offerings. These are exciting times: We’re at the top of industry analyst ratings and we are modernizing and creating a SaaS version of our CMS, as well as creating new ways of composing structure and layout. Our engineers are excited to take the product they love and have been working on for many years to the next level. And here is your opportunity to join them, as we are expanding these teams.  


This time we are looking for a .NET back-end or full-stack profile. You would be joining a group of teams with many very senior engineers with diverse skills, so personal and cultural fit will be a key differentiator alongside skills and experience. 


You are self-motivated and like to collaborate with your colleagues to find the best solution that solves the problem, considering architecture, cost of development and cost of ownership. We value building robust solutions that can live on and evolve over many years, while always prioritizing spending our time on what provides the most value possible to our customers. You are comfortable with working in a fast-moving agile environment and working closely with User Experience Designers, Product Managers, and other stakeholders. 


We work in hybrid mode and collaborate closely, in the office as well as remotely. We value work-life balance and while we are a global company and collaborate across time zones we prioritize respecting local working hours, family commitments as well taking care of your physical and mental health. We believe you will learn a lot here, we also believe that you bring new knowledge and ideas to us. We want you to thrive here for a long time, as many of us have. Optimizely is the best place to be your best!
