About SurveyMonkey Business Solutions

SurveyMonkey is the world’s most popular survey platform. While it is a great general-purpose tool used by millions, there is ample opportunity for specialized solutions. Our team builds targeted products that address the specific needs of our customers:

We operate each product team like a small start-up within the larger SurveyMonkey organization. This affords us the flexibility to try new ideas quickly, but with the resources of a larger company. Our goal is to transform them into high-growth, profitable businesses that leverage the enormous user base of SurveyMonkey.

Who We’re Looking For

We’re looking for a senior developer with a deep understanding of all aspects of the web application stack, with a focus on the back end. You should care about the quality of your code, user experience, and how your choices impact the business as a whole. You need to be able to evaluate trade-offs and make decisions.

Our team has been building Rails applications for over ten years. As our applications have grown, so have our teams and you will collaborate with our designers and frontend developers. We are committed to sharing our work - not just with each other, but via open source contributions.

If this mindset speaks to you, please include a cover letter along with your resume to introduce yourself. Our team puts a lot of stock in written communication. Plus, we’d appreciate a sense of your personality.

We offer relocation assistance to those located outside of Ottawa, and are also open to hiring a remote candidate within North America.

Why Work Here?

We are a remote team. As long as your work day overlaps the Pacific time zone by at least four hours, where you live and work is up to you. You will be asked to travel a few times a year for a full team meeting. We use this time not only for larger planning discussions, but also for a little social interaction. In the past year, we’ve gone bowling in Phoenix and hiking in Portland.

We are strong believers in work-life balance. We know world-class work can be done in just forty hours a week when distractions are minimized and the pace is sustainable. If you consider yourself to be a manager of one, this role is a great fit.


Must be able to obtain and hold government security clearance at the Reliability level.

At SurveyMonkey, we offer competitive salaries, medical/dental benefits, PTO, RRSP matching, and equity compensation.

SurveyMonkey is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.

Accommodations are available for applicants with disabilities
