Staff Software Engineer

This new team is in the process of building cloud services in a microservices architecture for a new platform we are creating to bring internal monitoring in house, and looking for a top-notch Senior Engineer to join our team.  The new services will be built in Node.js with a mix of Koa and Express, so experience with that is certainly preferred, but not required.

In this role, you will:

  • Architect solutions from their inception through production, from design, develop, test and deployment.
  • Work with product owners to understand their needs and deliver solutions in a test and learn approach.
  • Break larger services into microservices which are:
    • Small, and independent
    • Easy to learn, change, extend
    • Enable self-service by service users

About You:

  • Extensive professional experience (8+ years) writing web services at scale using one of Nodejs, Python, PHP, Ruby, Java, C#, or C++.
  • Working familiarity with at least one other language and a willingness to work in a polyglot development environment.
  • Thorough understanding of REST and web technology.
  • Experience with cloud technology (AWS preferred) and designing solutions that leverage its unique advantages.
  • Collaborative DevOps mindset and a passion for technology and learning. Enjoys mentoring teammates and helping everyone perform better.
  • Practitioner of lean or agile software development principles and practices, understanding and advocating the importance of test automation, continuous delivery, continuous improvement, and value delivery.
