Working at MaxMind

MaxMind has a social mission. MaxMind donates over 60% of profits to charities.
MaxMind’s compensation strives to reward getting stuff done, quality of work, and working well with others.
Our culture is very important to us. We’re friendly, collaborative, and work-focused. We don’t like office politics and unnecessary stress. We like to have productive workdays and don’t like work to chase us when we’re done for the day. We maintain a set of core, overlapping hours, but are flexible with specific start and end times and are understanding about appointments and life events. We care about helping each other succeed.
We are a fully remote company so communication centers around video chat, group chat, and Agile planning tools.
Diversity and Inclusion
We're committed to diversity and inclusion and are mindful of incorporating them into all aspects of our company.
We encourage and sincerely welcome applications from candidates of color, women, queer candidates, candidates with family caregiving responsibilities, transgender candidates, and from other communities not well represented in the tech world.
MaxMind is looking for a talented, experienced, and highly motivated Senior Software Engineer to help us develop and improve our products. We help protect thousands of companies worldwide from fraud, screening over a billion online transactions each year, and we provide IP intelligence data to thousands more. This work requires us to take on exciting challenges and we want you to help!
This is a full time remote position, and we welcome candidates to apply anywhere from Canada.
You must be eligible/authorized to work in Canada.
As a Senior Software Engineer, your job will be to carry out development projects both big and small. You may work on adding features to existing products, refactoring legacy code, fixing bugs in our open source APIs, or developing entirely new services. We're looking for an experienced software developer who can make good technical design decisions, write tests and documentation, and communicate well with non-developers.
Our salary range for Engineering roles begins at $165k CAD, with the specific offer depending upon skills and experience. See more about benefits and compensation below.
Our Development Practices
Our backend code is largely written in Perl and Go using PostgreSQL and Linux. We maintain high standards for our development practices. New backend code is expected to be written in Go, include automated tests run by TeamCity, and go through internal code review on GitHub Enterprise. The existing Perl code is being slowly rewritten in Go.
We use free software as much as possible, and we release code back to the community when we can do so. We're always improving the way we do development, and we expect you to participate in that process.
The first step is to complete a homework assignment. We ask for this so that we can gain insight into your work, and to make sure it aligns with what we are looking for. The next step would be a first round interview with our hiring manager and another engineer. This will be a technical interview combined with a pairing session. Next, there would be a final interview with two other team members. That interview would be a more general / behavioral interview. The final step of our hiring process is reference checking.
In addition to competitive compensation, our US benefits include medical, dental, vision, life, and short and long term disability insurance, a Safe Harbor 401(k) with employer contribution, Health Savings Account, Limited Purpose Flexible Spending Account, Dependent Care Account, and paid parental leave.
Our Canadian benefits include medical, dental, vision, life, accidental death and dismemberment, critical Illness, short and long term disability insurance, Employee and Family Assistance Program, and paid parental leave. You also have access to a group Retirement Savings Plan. In lieu of a Canadian RRSP contribution we provide a bonus payout at the end of each year that employees may decide to use toward retirement savings.
Everyone participates in a company performance-based bonus plan. MaxMind offers a $2,000 professional development budget and five days for professional development annually.
