Job Description

About the Role:

We have a highly productive technology team that enjoy a fast-paced and collaborative work environment that has involvement in end to end delivery of scalable technology solutions. We have a multi-cloud environment, and within our Development team we develop our client facing products utilising .Net/.Net Core, AWS, Javascript (React), gRPC, REST API’s, deployed using AWS running Docker containers, to name a few.

  • Our Senior Software Engineers are end-to-end owners. You will participate actively in all aspects of designing, building, and delivering products for our clients.

  • Develop with a variety of platforms and technologies, such Docker, Kubernetes, Gitlab, AWS, Azure, Aliyun, .NET Core, Java, Scala, SQL Server

  • Participate in design reviews and proof of concepts

  • Contribute to solution design in line with our overall technical roadmap and industry best practice

  • We have dozens of individual, mission-focused teams working across a wide spectrum of technological challenges. You will have the opportunity, depending on your interests and aptitude, to work on large-scale distributed systems coordinating thousands of servers in cloud and physical data centers around the world, petabyte-scale data challenges, machine learning, advanced visualizations, and interactive user interfaces – to name a few.

  • Senior Software Engineers contribute to more than our product – they build up our team. Through a combination of mentoring, technical leadership, and/or direct management of small teams, they make others better and raise the bar for those around them. 

Who We Are Looking For:

Skills and experience

  • Commercial development skills in OO programming (C#, Java or C++) and design

  • Cloud-based platform experience (AWS, Azure or Aliyun)

  • Excellent understanding of Agile development methodology and development practices 

  • Understanding of designing web-based, service-oriented applications and integrated back-office systems 

  • Experience in distributed source control system (such as Git)

Key Attributes

  • You have a sustained track record of making significant, self-directed, and end-to-end contributions to large and impactful software projects. You think beyond just the task at hand to deeply understand the 'why' behind what you are doing. 

  • You understand engineering fundamentals. At our scale, many off-the-shelf techniques and existing technologies (open source and enterprise) simply don't work. You are able to work from first principles to evaluate solutions and adapt them to a unique environment. 

  • You are a broadly skilled Technical Lead accustomed to developing web services. You have experience building always-on systems, working across avariety of technologies and service layers.

  • You have a product-focused mindset.  You have the passion and ability to contribute to the process of discovering what will delight our clients and push forward one of the world’s largest and most influential industries toward a vision of openness, transparency, and evidence-based decision-making.

  • You work with confidence and without ego. Our senior engineers (Tech Leads) have deep knowledge and exercise a high degree of leadership in their daily work. You have strongly-held, defensible ideas, and advocate for what you believe is right. You are also adept at identifying and evaluating trade-offs, willing to be proven wrong, and quick to walk through fire to support your fellow teammates. 

  • You value, seek out, and foster diversity. We are a global team from many diverse backgrounds, with different experiences and perspectives. To complement this team, you will welcome ideas that are different from your own and be skilled at finding and building from common ground. 

  • You are a creative thinker, not bound by "the way things have always been done". What you know is less important than how well you learn and innovate. We don't need engineers who know all the answers; we need engineers who can invent the answers no one has thought of yet, to the questions yet to be asked.
