Software Development Engineer

Software Development Engineer (Austin, TX)

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.

Job Summary

SDEs take ownership of their code and work closely with others to develop new features as well as efficiently address reported defects in ways that delight our customers. Using an Agile/Scrum methodology, SDEs discuss requirements, propose solutions, estimate their work, and then collaborate with others through the entire lifecycle.

Role & Responsibility 

  • Follow the established Agile/Scrum methodology for software design, development, code reviews, and testing; ensuring product quality and reliability
  • Design, develop and integrate solutions that can be shipped on time while complying with standards for usability, security, stability, reliability, and performance
  • Code reviews and Test-Driven Development are a way of life. We know that “the slow way is the fast way.”
  • 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 checkins. 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 microservices 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,, 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.
