We're looking for a Full Stack Engineer with an unwavering passion for designing meaningful, easy-to-use applications. Most of the work we do is on large-scale, enterprise-wide systems (both commercial and government)- this project in particular will help with supporting and modernizing a large educational application.
At Flexion (an agile software company that's been delivering excellence for over 24 years), our company culture is built on autonomy, trust, and transparency. We empower teams to remain self-sufficient and self-directed by hiring people who can solve complex problems through collaboration-this means lending a hand and flexing your multi-skilled muscles (research, content, business analysis, information architecture, etc.) as needed. Every member within a cross-functional team is a leader who takes responsibility for the entire team's success, which mirrors the company's overall flat structure.
What the job looks like:
Collaborate with teammates to architect, design, and implement software solutions to satisfy business requirements.
Coordinate with teammates on interdependent workstreams.
Comfortable working with all aspects of software development; including DevOps, quality assurance, research, and design.
Ability to shift gears and jump on a critical issue along with other teams and resolve quickly.
Why we want to hire you: You are passionate about software development and you can design small pieces as you go, while still thinking about how they fit into the whole. You welcome change as a positive thing (instead of viewing it as "rework") and never look at anything you deliver as "final." You understand when "good enough" really IS good enough, without ever compromising on the overall product quality.
5+ years of experience in software development
Experience with the following Open Source technologies: If you have Angular 2+ you can ramp up (we are using up to version 10), and Node.js
Experience with cloud/serverless technologies (we're using AWS DynamoDB but open to others)
Familiarity with Open Source work management tools such as JIRA, Jenkins, and Git, or similar
Proven experience working in a team setting on large scale projects
Proven experience working with Agile methodologies for delivering software
Ability to review and understand business requirements
Ability to review and create technical design documentation
Strong understanding of test-driven development and testing concepts to participate in unit testing, integration testing, system testing, and load testing
Strong understanding of enterprise-class system concepts (Deployment, Performance, Scalability, Availability, and Security)
Strong oral and written communication skill
Team player, highly collaborative
Relate effectively and work respectfully with diverse workgroups
Ability to consistently perform well during times of increased workload
Set and meet deadlines
Manage multiple job functions simultaneously
Preferred Qualifications (nice to have, not required)
Microservices architecture experience a plus, not required
