Full Stack Engineer

We believe strongly that a well-designed application makes customers happy, reduces support costs, and removes the need for static documentation. We ensure that every feature is customer-driven and simple enough to explain on a single page wiki.  Rather than hire into well-defined categories, we are looking for engineers that want to take ownership, deliver results, and make a difference in many different parts of our product and process evolution.  Here are some of the things that are important to us; if they’re important to you, we want to talk to you.

  • Code reviews and Test Driven Development are a way of life. We know that “the slow way is the fast way.”
  • Our engineers are masters of at least 1 part of our stack, are fluent in 2, and understand all 3.  Our technology looks like this:
    • Node.JS and/or Java
    • JavaScript - Angular, CSS, and Sass
    • AWS - EC2 (Ubuntu), RDS (MySQL/Postgres), Elasticache (Redis), S3, SQS
  • We make heavy use of GitHub and expect well-organized check-ins.  All code commits go through a highly collaborative code review process.
  • We are interested in engineers that have either strong Java experience with a desire to dive deep into Node.js or have a strong background with building and supporting production Node.js applications.  Experience with Java 8 is a plus as is experience writing unit tests, using mocking frameworks and task runners, and working with dependency injection.  On the UI front, experience in a modern UI framework such as Angular or React is desirable.
  • We do frequent, zero-downtime, no-drama deployments to our running production servers and focus on building highly scalable and available multi-tenant applications running on AWS.  Your code will run millions of times per day and will encounter corner cases you never imagined.
  • We run micro services that are a mix of Java and Node.js.  All of them expose and consume RESTful interfaces.
  • We consider experience with cloud application SDKs such as Amazon AWS, Google, Salesforce.com, or Office 365 a plus; if you have experience with single page web applications that make asynchronous server requests via REST, we’re interested to hear about it. 

Next Step
