Job Description:

  • Role can be fully remote*

We're looking for promising software developers with a passion for mastering new technology. Our stack is heavy on server side technologies - mostly Java and Rails oriented, but that doesn't stop us from using the right language or tool to solve a particular problem. We use Ruby to drive browser and API tests of our Java applications, build Fitnesse suites to organize our Scala-based integration tests and use C# to connect our applications to our clients' Windows-based ecosystems.

Core Responsibilities:

  • Develop software with high autonomy, pairing when appropriate.
  • Work with QA to write unit tests, UI tests and integration tests to prove your code works.
  • Contribute to a friendly, team-oriented atmosphere.
  • Stay on top of developments in the industry.
  • Communicate effectively, especially when shaping the direction our technology should take.

Technologies in use:

  • Languages: Java, Ruby, JavaScript, Scala, Python, Clojure, Bash
  • Third-party products: Oracle, ElasticSearch, MongoDB, AWS (Lambdas, S3, EC2, ), RabbitMQ
  • Frameworks: Spring Boot, React, Rails, Hibernate, jQuery
  • Systems Automation: Docker, HashiCorp Nomad/Consul/Vault, CloudFormation, Puppet, Hiera, Jenkins

Experience and Skills

You'll be able to demonstrate you can code in a practical interview, and you are comfortable with the idea of getting your hands dirty in every aspect of an end-to-end software creation process. If any of the following describe you, you'll probably be a great fit:

  • 3-5 years of Java development experience
  • You're a seasoned software professional, looking for a place you can perfect your craft amongst friendly and supportive co-workers.
  • Writing beautiful code is a passion of yours and you want to show the world.

  • 401(k) company match
  • Professional organization memberships
  • Game room, team events and quarterly company parties
  • Weekly games, beer, bagels and snacks
  • Casual work environment, jeans encouraged
  • Work with smart, cool and dedicated folks
