Job description

Our startup client is growing and looking to add a Platform Engineering Lead responsible for design and development of enterprise grade platform-level features to their team full time with benefits!  The primary focus of this role will be the implementation of  server-side logic, data model design and implementation, maintenance of a central database, and ensuring high performance and responsiveness (e.g., requests from the front-end). The role also requires enhancement of existing integration modules to interact with external systems like Salesforce, Gmail, Zoom and Gong, and Elastic - just to name a few. 

You may also be required to debug or enhance python code running NLP workflows, thus a working knowledge of python is an added plus. Our application is designed to run both on-prem and SaaS, hence understanding of docker based microservices is required. Even though the role primarily focuses on “back-end”, we expect the lead to take day to day ownership of the product, and have a "figure-it-out and get-it-down" attitude.  Therefore, the ideal candidate should have the ability to understand and leverage new technologies, including front-end (e.g., React), and is willing to wear multiple hats including business analyst, DBA, QA, and team lead / project manager.

  • Familiarity with Spring Boot application, search technologies like Elastic and NoSql databases like Cassandra is a huge plus

  • Experience with AWS EC2 systems is an added plus

  • Must be proficient with the entire software lifecycle - requirements, design, coding, testing, deployment, performance, and support

  • Knowledge of Enterprise integration-as-a-service technologies  is a HUGE plus; added bonus would be experience integrating with Salesforce CRM and Google Apps (email, calendar) 

  • Python, Machine Learning or NLP experience will be super

  • Experience with container technologies like Docker; familiarity with hybrid cloud deployments (on-prem, public) a plus

  • Experience with Enterprise security (e.g., SSO) a plus 

  • Comfortable in fast-paced environments and quick decision making; asks good questions

  • Strong verbal and written communication skills; can explain complex ideas simply to a non-technical audience

  • Experience managing a small team of engineers is a plus

  • Attention to detail; ability to multitask under tight timelines; flexibility to handle continuous variety of works; quick learner

  • Able to work Pacific time and start-up hours

  • Comfortable working with distributed teams (e.g., India)

  • Mission-driven, ready to help build a hugely impactful company

  • Creative mind and a can-do attitude.  Keen ability and initiative to go “beyond”and make an impact -- a “startup mindset” 

  • Must be a Green Card holder or a US Citizen.
