Location: Seattle, WA
Senior Software Development Engineer
 
If you're a strong senior/principal full stack developer with solid CS fundamentals and a passion for building massively-scaled consumer facing web applications, we have a great role for you. 
 
One of our international partners (an exceptionally well-funded global company with a significant equity opportunity) is building a new Engineering Office in Seattle, and we’re building a small team of very senior/principal engineers to seed the office: a team that will embed with current global staff, and then architect and build the next-generation platform.
 
Responsibilities
  • Integrate with an international team to become familiar with the key technical challenges and business priorities
  • Serve as a true technical leader, provide technical direction at a strategic level, and architect and develop new systems
  • Build a location based, highly performant, massively-scaled system that can support significant user interaction
  • Focus on performance, scalability, and reliability
  • Work closely with strong engineers, program managers, and others in Seattle and offices around the world
 
Requirements
  • 8+ years commercial software development experience, building and shipping products for real-world customers at scale
  • 5+ years experience in ownership of significant features or elements of complex web systems at scale, with proven design skills
  • Strong understanding of system performance
  • Significant experience working independently and being self-motivated
  • Strong CS fundamentals (with competencies in algorithms and data structures)
  • Excellent communication skill, and analytical abilities; ability to think critically of the current system, with respect to growth, performance and stability
  • Comfort working with international teams, and some willingness to travel to Asia
  • BS degree in computer science, software engineering, information technology or related fields required
  • Understanding of systems internals and networking are a plus
 
This is a full-time role, located onsite at the Company’s downtown Seattle office.
