Senior Software Engineer / US Based Team Lead - Scala

Are you ready to build great mobile and web-based applications and lead global teams with some of the brightest thought leaders, designers and technologists?  

As a Sr. Software Engineer / Team Lead, whether you are faced with a brand new system with a full galaxy of choices to make about server stacks, front end frameworks and supporting tools, or you have to assess a project with 10 years of technical debt, connections to legacy systems and a nasty performance cliff that has to be solved, you have the chops to figure it out and help the team find a way to succeed.  

A good Sr. Software Engineer / Team Lead, will have had exposure to a broad variety of front end and back end frameworks and multiple software ecosystems and will be able to explain patiently to clients and prospects about where the source of their pain may originate: anything from the network, database, back end, middleware, API, or front end - to the human factors that influence an application’s success or failure. Whether you’re consulting across multiple projects and teams or rolling up your sleeves to dig into code on just one, your flexibility makes all the difference.

This role may be performed from a remote location within the United States

Your Responsibilities:

  • Act as team lead
  • Participate in the end to end architecture, development and roll out of a data analytics platform by coordinating with UI and Backend developers globally dispersed

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, a related Engineering discipline or equivalent professional experience
  • 8-12 years of progressive experience in designing, building and maintaining software systems
  • Strong, demonstrated experience using Scala
  • Experience with Microservices with an emphasis on Java and Scala
  • Strong, demonstrated experience using AngularJS version 1.x and solid JavaScript skills
  • Multiple operating system families and environments (Mac OS, Linux, Windows)
  • MariaDB/MySQL experience
  • Experience working in AWS with a variety of Amazon tools such as RDS and S3
  • Knowledge of source control systems such as BitBucket or GitHub.  
  • Knowledge of Big Data Systems including Hadoop, HDFS and Spark
  • Designing and implementing APIs for systems, with both RESTful styles of communication and other legacy approaches (e.g. SOAP)
  • Software estimation skills, including Agile estimation with Story Points and Scrum planning experience.
  • Agile team leadership and leading by example in mixed teams of clients and consulting staff

Highly qualified candidates will also have:

  • An advanced degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering,  a related field, or equivalent experience
  • Used software configuration management frameworks (Chef, Puppet, Ansible, or Salt) to configure both individual servers and fleets of machines
  • Familiar with Docker and Vagrant
