Associate Software Engineer Program - Security Team

We're seeking inventive, passionate software developers with a diversity of perspectives and backgrounds who want to be change agents on our journey to transform (and secure!) the Application Economy.

About CA:

CA Technologies is a Fortune 1000 company with a startup mentality – and we're searching for incredible, bright talent to dominate in the marketplace. CA has been a leading software company for nearly four decades – with a global customer base that includes the majority of the Fortune 2000 – but what excites us today is the opportunity to redefine the future of our industry in the age of the cloud, mobile, social and big data. We have a daring vision and a powerful, expanding solution set that helps the world's most successful companies realize their boldest objectives.

About the Role

As an Associate Software Engineer you'll play a key role in the CA Security product development community. You'll be focused on CA Privileged Access Management (CA PAM) family of products, which are market-leading enterprise security products supporting hundreds of Fortune 1000 customers. You will plan, code, and retrospect with your team. Your code will run through continuous integration, merge to master, and deploy to production. The features and functionality that you build will be used by our customers to secure their most protect information assets every single day. In this role, you will not only build skills and gain increasing responsibility, you will also be making an impact by providing analysis related to software design and development, evaluating software performance, and making your recommendations to the rest of the CA PAM team.

We collaborate constantly. We develop with modern languages, frameworks, and tools. We believe in clean code, automated testing, and scaling. We take walks, play games and have fun to give our brains a break. We use our own products to manage our work and stay agile. We're always getting better. We care about mentoring our developers. We pair program, perform code reviews on every commit, and have several forums for knowledge sharing. We actively invest in the growth of our developers, and our associate engineers are no exception.

Role Training:

The Associate Software Engineer position includes a 3-week training program (Mainframe has additional 4 weeks) in one of our U.S. based offices in June 2018. During this training, all participants' expenses (meals, travel and hotel) are covered by the company. After the training is complete all will return to their home offices and work with their Business Unit.

How Will YOU Stand Out?

Must Haves:

  • Students on track to graduate in December 2017 or May 2018 with either a BS or MS in Computer Science or Information Systems
  • Experience with full stack web application development
  • Knowledge of object-oriented and/or functional programming
  • Experience with Java and JavaScript
  • Great communication skills along with the ability to clearly and effectively discuss project work with others
  • Intellectual curiosity and the ability to grasp concepts quickly
  • Proven Team experience; Agile Team experience is a plus

Why Our Engineers Love It Here?

  • Mission-Critical Technology: CA Technologies is all about enabling its customers to be successful in the Application Economy. Enterprise security is an absolute requirement to enabling that success. Our teams get a chance to innovate with a mission critical, cutting edge and market-leading enterprise security solution
  • Big Enough to Be Interesting...Small Enough to Make an Impact: CA Technologies is a leading enterprise software provider with 12,000+ employees, hundreds of customers and decades of history. Success at scale is what CA is about. That said, the CA Security business unit – and specifically the CA Privileged Access Management product team – is nimble enough that each and every developer means something. Individual contributions power the development teams and the collection of development teams dictate the success of the product.
  • A Learning Environment: Our experiment-rich culture has us evolving our methodology and tools constantly. We encourage developers to attend and present at conferences and meetups.
  • Collaboration & Influence: Our teams work closely together in agile style, enabling us to learn from each other rather than getting trapped in silos. Every developer is empowered and encouraged to make things better - the product, the technology, the processes, and the culture.
  • Work/life balance: We take this one seriously, and work hard to make the pace sustainable.

The Perks
