Job Description

We also build bi-directional connectors and integrations for other core systems and tools like Tableau, Workday, and VSCode. The PaaS team is entrepreneurial and partners with many other product experience teams (PXTs) to expand the impact of our product beyond

Ways we work:

  • Software Craftsmanship - we want to be proud of our work.
  • Test-Driven Development - we take ownership for our code without QA engineers
  • Pair programming - we value collaborative development
  • Continuous Delivery - teams independently ship code to prod every day
  • Kanban & Lean - no more backlog grooming, no more T-shirt size estimating
  • Continual improvement - we take time to sharpen the saw and adjust how we work
  • Autonomous & responsible teams - making their own product & dev choices
  • Multi-functional teams - collaborating through all phases of the product dev process
  • Customer research - we build what our customers actually want
  • Trusting leaders - who empower us to create the right solutions for our customers
  • Solid technology - of the team’s choice, for the right job

You’d be an outstanding fit if you have:

  • Experience building software with Node, GraphQL, ReactJS, and Postgres.
  • Experience writing unit tests, performing code reviews, and participating in design discussions about architecture, data shape, and business logic.
  • Experience designing, building, or supporting high performance distributed systems.
  • Experience designing, building, or supporting self-service platforms.
  • A foundational understanding and experience with topics related to platform scale, security, availability, deployment and operations.

You are:

  • An encouraging and engaged team member, able to express sophisticated information to a variety of consumers.
  • Able to problem tackle independently and prioritize work based on anticipated business value.
  • Able to distill sophisticated ideas into straight forward language.
  • Passionate about data, innovation, and using technology to unlock the future.

And these would be nice to have as well:

  • Experience in data modeling and/or data architectures
  • Experience with database and query performance tuning
  • Experience solving analytical business problems using data
