Emerging Technology - Software Innovation Specialist

San Francisco, CA 94103

Most software developers, engineers, and architects get to build cool software systems. Very few get to say with a straight face: Im reinventing banking. Or hospitality, or logistics, or insurance. Were combining technology, industry expertise, and entrepreneurial experience to massively disrupt our clients core businesses, in order to propel them into the future and create better products and experiences for everyone.

Were doing this by leveraging the power of new patterns and architectures (Serverless, Microservices, Event Sourcing, etc) and technologies (Kafka, Elixir, TensorFlow, Node.js, Docker, Go) to build cloud-native style solutions for the enterprise. Most of our work fits what we call Digital Decoupling, where we design and build a state of the art system to wrap legacy, isolate legacy components, build new functionality, and slowly and methodically hollow out the existing core.

Our team is deeply hands on, highly technical, and prides itself in being battle hardened, lead-from-the-front technology thought leaders. If you want to largely draw diagrams and pontificate on adding yet another layer to an already bloated monolith, this probably isnt the role for you. Our competitors are hiring for that kind of thing.

If, however, youre interested in solving some of the hardest problems in enterprise technology and transforming and disrupting established industries, lets talk.

Basic Qualifications:

+ Minimum 2 years hands on experience building interesting and innovative applications, or equivalent open source contribution (several projects as ongoing contributor).

+ While we are looking for a mix of technologies, .NET or JEE application experience or legacy application maintenance probably dont qualify as interesting or innovative.

+ Experience explaining complex technical concepts to an executive audience. If you can explain what event sourcing or the reactor pattern are to a layperson, youve got this.

+ Some experience designing and building software systems. i.e planning out infrastructure, cloud platform components, network details etc.

+ Experience working in an agile team.

Technical Literacy (Required for all levels):

+ Working knowledge of git

+ Experience with at least one modern programming language (including but not limited to Go, JavaScript, Elixir, Ruby, Python, Rust, and sometimes Java)

Preferred Qualifications (General):

Below are nice to haves, and if you dont have more than one or two, dont be discouraged. Were trying to build a team with a very diverse set of skills and backgrounds, and a big part of that means different skills.

+ Experience with more than one programming language (JavaScript, Go, Elixir, Python, or Rust preferred)

+ Hands on experience with Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, or Azure; namely choosing platform components and assembling application and runtime architecture

+ Experience with the Serverless framework and serverless architecture.

+ Experience with microservices architectures and constituent technologies (hapijs, gokit, Spring Cloud)

+ Experience with containerization and container platforms. (e.g. Docker, Kubernetes, Docker EE, Mesosphere)

+ Experience with Event Driven Architectures and constituent technologies (e.g. Kafka, Kinesis) and patterns (Event Sourcing, etc)

+ Functional programming experience, specifically with Actor systems (Erlang, Elixir, Akka)

+ Experience with embedded devices and development (mostly C, but also some Rust, etc)

+ Experience with high performance networking (Quic, network layer optimization) or realtime transaction protocols/methods (HTTP2, Server Sent Events, MQTT, WebSockets)

+ Experience with distributed transactional data stores (CockroachDB, Spanner, ScyllaDB, etc)
