  • Manage tight deadlines and prioritize workload with little supervision
  • Work efficiently within our in-house CMS and Salesforce
  • Communicate effectively with the editorial team to ensure any roadblocks are addressed in a timely manner
  • Source and resize images to accompany articles as needed
  • Liaise with freelance writers when necessary
  • Assist supervising editor with daily operational and organizational tasks, such as assigning articles

An Insider's view of StackCommerce

What’s the vibe like in the office?

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

All businesses need one thing to thrive: customers. But one of the biggest problems is getting them. That’s where my partnerships team comes into play. We help the product makers of the world get new customers in a way that’s never been done before and we're pretty darn good at it!

Vendor Partnerships

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Within my first few weeks at Stack, I was already working on projects that aggressively pushed my skillset into new areas. Now half a year in, I already feel far more well-rounded as a developer because of the small team and lack of organizational boundaries. This allowed me to try new roles and be a decision-maker on projects that have huge impact

Alex

Software Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

One of my favorite initiatives is Hack Day when we ditch our daily tasks in favor of pursuing an out-of-the-box idea or product to improve the business. It’s a really fun event, and we’ve seen some of our most successful products come out of it! We also offer a $500/yr learning stipend to encourage the team to pursue new skills and personal growth.
