Currently, we are looking for a mid-level to senior software engineer with significant design and implementation experience who is highly motivated, self-driven and will take on the following responsibilities:

  • Design and implementation of new features and capabilities based on functional/user requirements.
  • Interaction with partners' technical personnel to develop API and other interface specifications.
  • Support of the back-end server, database and presentation engine.
  • Basic engineering responsibilities including release engineering tasks and management of our source code and cloud hosting.
  • Contribute to the overall team in a simple, SCRUM based and rapid turn-around development environment.
