Our software engineers are committed to the craft of collaboratively building high-quality and sustainable software products that delight our clients and their customers by taking advantage of emerging tools in an ever-changing technological landscape.

  • Operational efficiencies leveraging modern ecosystems and automated build and deployment pipelines.
  • Collaborative build practices that allow our teams to be agile and responsive to our clients' needs.

What You'll Do

You will focus on building high-quality software as part of a collaborative product engineering team, using your skills to own the development of larger components. By regularly reviewing and contributing to the refinement of your team's work, you'll align to project teams working alongside other talented software engineers and architects. You will lend creativity to solving software problems using core development tools and techniques. You will contribute to the entire software stack of the components that you own-aligning data, API, and UI components to the norms of the rest of the software product. All while experimenting with new technologies and developing skills across the stack and contributing to the positive flow of your team. Specifically, you will:
  • Write high-quality application code using emerging technologies and frameworks primarily targeting cloud-based ecosystems.
  • Collaborate with other software development capabilities to iteratively develop, validate, and operate software at scale using agile techniques.
  • Verify components at the unit and integration level using proven validation techniques.
  • Develop supporting scripts and routines that automate procedures and help maintain components in production environments.

What You'll Bring

Your primary responsibility will be to deliver functioning, validated code leaning on your experience building production software. You will bring your ability to organize your ideas into design, code, and supporting tests that others on your team can use. Collaboration will be key as you ensure that your components align with the overall technical direction of the product team. Humble expertise will serve you well as you listen and observe the needs of your client in order to best apply your understanding. Curiosity will drive you to understand why your check-in broke the build as well as to lend a hand in maintaining the pipeline. A desire to learn and grow will always be fed by those around you. You take pride in your work and take time to appreciate the little details about the software that you are building.
