We’re looking for a seasoned software developer to join our team. We have an exciting opportunity to apply the latest technologies and tools for building high performance, scalable big-data solutions. Our team is responsible for the Audience Console, a key product within the IgnitionOne Digital Marketing Suite. We are rewriting the Audience Console as a reactive application using Java and using toolkit such as Vertx and leveraging stream processing using tools (e.g. Apache Storm, Kafka Streams etc) and the stack rounds out with Kafka, Cassandra, and PostgreSQL

Our rich web applications are based on Angular.js and Bootstrap. While we have a dedicated UX development team that does the heavy lifting, you will at times be responsible for UX feature enhancements in addition to all server side development.

There is immense opportunity before us, and so we move fast and employ agile development practices to fulfill our growing product vision.
