Associate Software Engineer
Holding an entry level position does not mean you will be making a less valuable contribution to the team. It is expected, that even on your first day, you begin to have a positive impact on our systems, product, team, and customers. Here, all ideas are heard, and the best ideas win, regardless of where they come from. Great products come from the fusion of rock solid engineering, clear product vision, and a hypersensitivity to the customer experience. In this environment, you’ll be given, and expected to take, every opportunity to grow and learn. Under the mentorship and guidance of experienced team members, you will be brought up to speed on our practice and standards. You will be entrenched in the design, development, maintenance, and testing of the product. Being a well-rounded team member does not come from burying your head in the code, although we expect that you do that sometime too. Along with growing your skills as a professional developer, you are expected to embrace and live our design and development methodologies, understand our business, become an expert level user or our products, and grow empathy for our customers.
