Senior Software Engineer

About Prive

Prive is the world's first marketplace infrastructure platform for eCommerce brands. We are building for the new generation, enabling brands you know and love to compete and win at scale. Starting with the tools and systems that allow brands to manage and optimize their end-to-end pricing and incentives levers, we are changing the status quo of guess-work and tribal knowledge- hardly what 2021 should look like. Prive enables brands to compete against the Amazons of the world.

About the Role

As a senior software engineer at Prive, you'll be a member of the founding team, shaping the engineering org and the culture of Prive as we enable thousands of brands to compete amid unprecedented eCommerce growth. You will be in the front seat of an industry that is heating up and will be a key player in changing how shoppers engage with brands, so an owner-mindset, ambition, and a desire to help our brands win is something that is core to our mission. We aren't just another SaaS platform, and being 'headless' doesn't sound like a lot of fun. Join us on our mission to equip all eCommerce brands with the tools to compete like a tech company.

Why join?

  • We are growing quickly, seed-stage & backed by the Valley's top VCs
  • Join a team that has led core marketplace products at companies like Uber, now bringing the same thinking to an industry that is heating up
  • Work directly with the founders as a member of the founding team. As we are small, there are lots of opportunities to grow and shape the future of the company
  • Help set the technical foundation of Prive by leading to the end-to-end development of products & features
  • Redefine the way shoppers interact with the brands they love

Types of engineering projects you can lead

  • Experience - Build consumer-grade products for the enterprise and magical E2E offer experience for shoppers
  • Targeting - Novel systems for efficient promotional budget allocation across multiple incentives levers and objective functions
  • Pricing & Promotions Engine - Foundations for incentives structures, execution & serving, budget management, timing. Design and implement new incentives and promotional offers that will engage shoppers.
  • Measurement - Experimentation platforms & analytics
  • Integrations - Seamlessly integrate with the existing eComm ecosystem

Who we look for

What we really care about is your ability to learn, build, and execute. Are you pumped to operate a space that's evolving quickly? Are you excited to shape a young tech stack and engineering org? Are you motivated by helping our users compete and scale? We look for not just Owners but also Sellers (bonus points if you have set up a Shopify store). The following is also nice:

  • 5+ years professional software development experience (L5+)
  • Experience managing & recruiting engineers
  • Backend and frontend experience with modern web tech stacks
  • Experience in building and deploying machine learning models
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science/Software Engineering or equivalent industry experience


  • Competitive equity package
  • Home-office setup stipend
  • Location flexibility: We're based in San Francisco, CA, but are embracing remote-work to enable you to do your best work from anywhere.
