  • Build tools to help our internal business partners better perform their jobs

  • Interacting with customers and/or sales on a bug in the software, quickly resolving it, and coordinating across the team to push a fix.
  • Working with other engineers and discussing quirks in network protocols and network interconnection which translate rapid API changes.

 

WHAT YOU BRING:

The right candidate will have an abundance of hard-core programming skills, have solid instincts for API usability and design patterns.

  • Experience working in an environment leveraging remote communication collaboration tools like Slack, Zoom etc.
  • Never being afraid to venture boldly where none have gone before and develop code where there are no previous libraries to draw from.

 

Preferred Experience

  • Cassandra experience.
  • Any experience interacting with physical world equipment - industrial, medical, etc
  • SQL experience.
