Software Engineer - Ruby/Java

Portland, Oregon

We are looking for an engineer to join our access team. Our customers are both internal and external. Externally, we provide login, authentication and role management. Internally, we offer consistent and secure role management services that expedite the development process of other teams.

We work with some of the smartest, nicest people you'll meet. People who work here say the problems they work on are enormously challenging, and that the team culture is the most supportive they've seen. If you'd like to be the next great member of our team, read on!

What working here is like:

* We build high-availability applications using contemporary technologies and practices.

* We ship incrementally and often. Once we merge code we typically ship it through to production straight away.

* We own a number of operationally critical services, so we proactively invest in our operational concerns.

* We rotate through a week of being on-call for the team as well as being the "support hero" that fields questions from outside the team during the day. On-call is pretty quiet after hours, and we take time to fix anything that does come up.

* We own our process and we're free to improve on it as we see fit - normally an experiment we try after a discussion in a retrospective.


* You have a collaborative working style that includes colleagues in important decisions and leads to shared code ownership.

* Proficiency in either Java or Ruby, or in similar languages like .NET or Python and the ability to get up to speed quickly.

* Flexibility and a desire to learn are important-most of our current work is in Ruby and React and we support services written in Java.

Nice to haves:

* The bulk of our work is in backend services and APIs, but we have a bit of UI, so React (or similar UI framework) experience is great to have.

* Experience or interest working on a complex service oriented environment coordinating a large number of services.

* Ability to work with heterogeneous systems and troubleshoot new environments you may not have encountered before.

* A security mindset in everything you do, including experience working with different encryption schemes and preventing XSS and SQL-injection

* Experience or interest working with single sign-on and identity management standards such as SAML and SCIM.

The kind of person that enjoys this job:

* Likes working deep in the guts of a system, improving the infrastructure for everybody, but not always building things our end users would see in a web browser.

* Enjoys working on critical components that are designed to be performant and resilient to failure.

* Wants the autonomy to decide how to tackle technical challenges.

* Finds the operational aspects of owning services engaging rather than a chore.
