As the Cimpress Mass Customization platform grows, Cimpress needs to help merchants market and sell the million+ SKUs available across our fulfillment network. It doesn’t matter whether the merchant is selling to customers through an in-store retail experience, a wholesaler relationship, a large online store, or a small turnkey store built with Shopify or WooCommerce.


The Merchandising Solutions Team builds systems that help merchants create powerful user experiences for their customers ordering customized products, without the development overhead of a merchant needing to reinvent the wheel or hire a consultancy. Our solutions are completely “white label”, so the merchant can showcase their brand experience in the way they would like.


Our engineers need to be truly versatile. One day you may be building a REST/JSON API in C# on MongoDB, the next needing to write a single-page UX in NodeJS. Intellectual curiosity, a solid background in software engineering fundamentals, desire to work on customer-facing UX, and passion to learn quickly are more important than deep experience in a specific technology.


Here are some successful recent examples of solutions we have delivered:

  • A fully-customizable CMS system geared towards arranging taxonomy and marketing across a wide variety of promotional and apparel products.
  • An in-store retail experience for a high end brand in East Asia.
  • “Groups and teams” functionality which allows customers to design their logo apparel, and then customize the names on the individual products.
  • Customers can choose from a wide range of decoration technologies from embroidery to multi color print, where the design experience is tailored (including warnings and rendering) to the specific decoration being chosen.

As a Principal Software Engineer you will be a key leader on this experienced, fast-paced and driven development team. You will work within green field development areas that create new business opportunities for a large and fast growing company. 



  • Proficiency in at least one mainstream back-end language: Java, Python, Ruby, PHP, C#
  • Knowledge of web languages (HTML/CSS/Javascript) is useful
  • Excellent presentation skills, especially to non-technical audiences
  • Proven track record of years of successful software delivery

Willingness to work with merchant customers around the world (non-native English speakers), some travel possible
