This is an entry-level client-facing role covering both pre- and post-implementation of the Enlighted and Comfy systems. A large portion of your time will be spent identifying the unique needs of our customers and mastering an understanding of their operational methods. Additionally, this role will be tasked with becoming a Comfy and Enlighted subject matter expert, using this skillset to support our customers with new and existing deployments, ongoing product support, and guide our customers so they see the most value that they can from our products. In this role, you will shadow and support a more experienced member of the team until you are able to manage client relationships on your own. 

Position Overview

We are looking for a Senior Cloud Software Developer to help build the next generation of our smart building products. This is an opportunity to make difference by developing products that make offices, hospitals, factories and warehouse into energy efficient, interactive and efficient spaces in which to work. This role is on our real-time location services team, which uses IoT and real-time data to help our customers continuously track equipment and devices in their buildings. Whether the user is a shop-floor manager, a corporate facilities manager or a nurse looking for a critical piece of equipment, our service is improving the way that people work. Come join our startup culture and participate firsthand in designing the future of workspaces.

We value clean architecture and modern approaches to software development and testing. Our products consist of cloud-based micro-services, machine learning models driven by real-time data, and modern web and mobile applications. You will work closely with a tight, agile team that ships features continuously, and you will be able to see the impact of your work on real customers.

As a Full Stack Software Engineer, you’ll be working as part of a scrum team to build cloud micro-services that are resilient, fault-tolerant and performant, while working with other teams to determine how the features and functionality that you add can make our customers happy. To do that, you'll need to have technical depth; systems thinking; and the ability to work as part of distributed team. This is the ideal role for someone who wants to be part of a cutting-edge cloud development team while improving the lives of people in buildings all over the world. Join us in Transforming the Everyday!

What will you do?

  • First and foremost, you love writing software. Your code is comprehensible, well-structured, highly performant; your best days at work are in front of the computer cranking out code on your own, although you have the experience to know that a winning product requires an entire team.
  • You are curious and passionate about knowing “why”, whether it is why a use case is important for a customer, or why something strange happens one time in a hundred tries.
  • You love both learning and teaching. In this role, you will be interfacing with design, front-end, back-end, platforms, analytics, as well as our PM and QA teams; towards that end, you enjoy working across teams to solve hard problems.
  • Agile development is second nature. Not only will you be expected to participate in daily scrums, sprint planning, and retros; you'll be expected to help improve our ceremonies.
  • You strive for quality, and are obsessed with unit tests, automation, and squashing any bugs that sneak through. But it's more than that: you'll use our product, realize "hey! that's not what I expected!" and figure out how to make it better for everyone.

What will you need to succeed?

  • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, engineering, or other related discipline required
  • Deep knowledge of at least one modern programming language (Python preferred)
  • Expertise in service-oriented architectures; ideally, you've developed APIs for both internal and external-facing services
  • You're obsessed with performance, and have experience with instrumentation and monitoring services to ensure the application is behaving as expected
  • You have a basic knowledge of computer science fundamentals, including data structures, algorithms, and object-oriented design
  • 8+ years of industry experience developing large-scale applications (Junior and Senior level candidates are also invited to apply!)
    • Experience with delivering cloud-based services in AWS or GCP
    • Experience with data processing technologies such as Kafka/Kinesis, Spark, Storm
    • Experience with server framework, or with Java microservice frameworks like Spring Boot or Quarkus
    • Ability to define, design and deliver a distributed automation platform for compute, storage, database, queuing and other infrastructure
    • Understanding of web service development
    • Experience with Terraform and Jenkins

Preferred Knowledge/Skills, Education, and Experience

  • Experience building complex, scalable, high-performance software systems that have been successfully delivered to customers
  • Experience designing and deploying dynamically scalable, highly available, fault tolerant and reliable cloud applications (AWS preferred)
  • Experience working with third-party / IoT integrations
  • Experience working with platforms for Big Data or Machine Learning solutions
  • Technologies We Use: Python, FastAPI, Redis, TensorFlow, Postgres, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, AWS, GCP, Java, Javascript, Typescript, Vue

What you can expect from us:

  • Mentorship from experienced team members balanced with the expectation to be self-driven and self-motivated to grow and learn at Comfy | Enlighted
  • Constant collaboration with numerous teams, including Customer Support, Professional Services, Product, and Engineering.
  • Creativity and thinking outside of the box will be strongly encouraged
  • An exciting team that respects and embraces your ideas and expertise
  • Coworkers that are motivated by teamwork, pursuing excellence, and team wins opposed to the prospect of personal gain
