  • You better those around you by driving team efficiency improvements, mentoring teammates to strengthen individual skills and share your learning.

About You

  • You have 5+ years of experience in Software or Systems Development.
  • You have expertise in designing, analyzing and troubleshooting large-scale distributed systems, particularly in a cloud environment (preferably AWS).
  • You have strong development skills in at least one language (preferably Java).
  • You can lead and drive forward complex technical discussions with a variety of audiences, including Software and Systems Engineers, and Senior Management.
  • You exhibit customer empathy: you are a “voice of the customer” and understand how your projects affect user experience.
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Computer or Electrical Engineering, or 2 years of equivalent work experience.

What We Offer

  • Competitive compensation packages with a salary, bonuses, and restricted stock grants.
  • Generous benefits, including three weeks of paid vacation, medical, dental, and vision insurance, and fully paid family leave.
  • A high-growth company, providing opportunities for continued professional development and growth.
