Position/Team Description

We are seeking an experienced software developer to join our Integration Technologies team, which leverages Modo’s exciting XModuleTM technology together with an innovative middleware framework to integrate third party products and services at a truly rapid pace.

As a senior member of the team, you will be responsible for leading development projects, determining sprint schedules, reviewing work of peers, and providing guidance for best practices. You will also act as a mentor to other developers on the team, provide technical expertise when evaluating new projects, and help lead architectural discussions.

Our team is a fun group of developers who frequently collaborate even while most projects are 1-2 person efforts-we rely on sharing many common problems and solutions to thrive at work. We are open minded, and opportunities to push the envelope will abound for motivated self-starters. At the same time, we regularly look to improve and enhance our development practices and are happy to hear new perspectives. We also frequently collaborate with a team of external developers with whom we are standardizing a variety of practices collectively.

Come join our team as we create and contribute to an ecosystem of integrated technologies that will tremendously expand the capabilities of our products!
