Sr. Principal Software Engineer

CA Technologies creates software that fuels transformation for companies and enables them to seize the opportunities of the application economy. Software is at the heart of every business in every industry. From planning, to development, to management and security, CA is working with companies worldwide to change the way we live, transact, and communicate – across mobile, private and public cloud, distributed and mainframe environments.

Marc Andreesen quipped in 2011, “Software is eating the world”, and agile management practices are at the center of the feeding frenzy, spreading far beyond their origins in software development to sectors such as the auto industry, routers, chip manufacturing, groceries, and retail.

At CA Technologies’ R&D Innovation Center in Boulder, Colorado we build products like CA Agile Central, formerly known as Rally, that enable companies to morph from slow-moving bureaucracies into places where trust, collaboration, innovation, and rapid response to changing customer demands are the norm.

We think radically transforming the way software is built and delivered is pretty exciting stuff, and we’re looking for developers who want to join the fun.

A Bit About Us:

We collaborate constantly. We develop with modern languages, frameworks, and tools. We think about clean code, automated testing, and scaling all the time. We take walks, sample the kegs, and play games to give our brains a break. We use our own products to manage our work and stay agile. We’re always getting better.

Some of the reasons our engineers love it here:

  • Hackathons: Unleash your creativity with regular opportunities to prototype your ideas with whatever cool new tech you want and present it to the rest of the business. Many hackathons have become full-fledged parts of our products.
  • No role or tech ruts: Expand your role or create your own. Work across the entire stack or specialize in an area of interest to you. Change teams when you need some new scenery.
  • 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: Our teams work closely together in agile style, enabling us to learn from each other rather than getting trapped in silos. Almost all production code is written in pairs.
  • Influence: Every developer is empowered and encouraged to make things better – the product, the technology, the processes, and the culture.
  • Location: With a thriving tech scene, 300 days of sunshine, 300 miles of dedicated bikeways, and an almost embarrassing abundance of outdoor adventure opportunities, Boulder is an amazing place to live.
  • Work/life balance: We take this one seriously, and work hard to make the pace sustainable.

  • Build a new page using ReactJS, creating reusable UI components along the way
  • Enhance service to service communication over a Kafka message bus

  • Use Splunk and in-house tooling to dive deep into a performance problem and fix it
