Platforms

We are looking for software engineers who have high availability, resilience, and security in mind while they’re creating state-of-the-art solutions.

  • You will be fully responsible for projects from initial design to bringing the new functionality live.
  • Your code will be used at scale and you have to think in that mindset when building features.
  • Identify and improve parts of the platform to make it more robust and scalable.
  • Collaborate across teams and time zones to make things happen, review code and be open to feedback.

Who you are

  • Familiar with complex distributed systems
  • You are flexible, a team player, someone with an eye for detail.
  • Able to take ownership and lead a project.
  • You have great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts
  • Preferred Qualifications: 
    • Demonstrated knowledge of Java, Web Services (RESTful, SOAP)
    • Experienced in creating performant SQL queries and table structures in PostgreSQL or other relational databases
  • Open to some domestic and international travel
