Currently hiring for highly experienced software engineers with a blend of specializations including API design and development, integrations, databases, and others to help build their next-gen products as their top technical initiative of 2021.

The ideal candidate has strong experience in core Java and at least one other commonly used language and web framework. Their applications are built on a multi-lingual set of microservices (mainly Java and Golang), so the ideal candidate has experience in both or at least a desire to learn Go and not only work inside of the Java box.
