Our customer and internal-facing platforms are powered by microservices, including event-driven and HTTP APIs. Our services are fronted with a suite of modern JavaScript applications. We own the full stack of each service from application logic to infrastructure and we are operationally responsible for the services we run. We practice continuous integration and delivery, deploying our services to production hundreds of times a day.
We continuously evaluate new technologies to assess their fit within our solutions, so a strong desire to learn is a must. Experience with the technologies we work with today is a plus but not essential. We are committed to delivering excellence and every team member has to be comfortable taking ownership of the quality of their applications through testing to production.

You Will:

  • Contribute to the design and development of application features
  • Document, organize, and prioritize feature requests and bug reports
  • Review, test, debug, and comment on task deliverables
  • Provide operational application support
  • Mentor junior engineers
  • Investigate new technologies, tools and processes and make recommendations for adoption
  • Coordinate, communicate and provide technical support to other functional groups relating to web application development and support

You Have:

  • Five years or more of applied experience coding in an object-oriented language (Python preferred).
  • Five years or more of applied experience working in a *NIX (OSX/Linux/BSD) environment
  • Strong understanding of HTTP REST-based web application architecture.
  • Strong skills in debugging, performance optimization, and unit/integration testing.
  • Ability to identify customer needs, gather requirements, and execute with high independence.
  • Ability to mentor and work effectively in a globally distributed team of engineers.
  • Ability to adapt to a dynamic environment that includes changing needs and requirements.
  • Proven ability to write highly maintainable, well-tested software.
  • Excellent communication skills (both written and verbal) and ability to succinctly present information to stakeholders, the customer, and management.
  • AWS expertise (EC2, ECS, S3, Lambda, etc)
  • Experience with container technologies (Docker, LXC)
  • Experience with Github Actions or CircleCI
  • Experience with vSphere or vCloud Director
  • Strong understanding of continuous delivery workflow.
  • Competence with multiple languages and technologies (Python, Javascript, Go, Java, etc).
  • Creative approach to problem-solving and exceptional analytical skills.
  • Ability to quickly adapt to projects that require taking initiative and developing new expertise.


  • Bachelor degree
  • Highschool diploma
