Senior Software Engineer

Montreal, Quebec, Canada  - Permanent

Job Description

Our client is solving interesting problems for cloud native developers in the Kubernetes space. They are looking to hire engineers that care as much about empowering developers as they do and have embraced the cloud native phenomenon that is taking over the world.

You will be working on products aimed at drastically improving the way cloud native developers work. Your impact will be felt by thousands of users at companies like Epic Games, Microsoft, PTC, Ticketmaster, Cisco and Unity Technologies. This is a rare opportunity to join a growing team of smart and empathetic software engineers. The role is focused primarily on product development of new products and services.

They have loosely adopted Basecamp’s Shape-Up approach to development by undertaking well-shaped projects in four-week cycles. As a team, their focus is firmly on products that help users make the shift to the cloud with Kubernetes, front and center.

We’re looking for:

Candidates with a strong track record of putting Golang, Python, and Javascript to use to bring products to life. Ideally, you’ve already had some direct or indirect exposure to Kubernetes and have a passion for creating WOW experiences while at the same time making continuous improvements. Have a great idea? Act on it! You don’t have to go through layers of bureaucracy to get things done.

You Will:

•You’ll work in Golang, Python, and Web-components (Javascript+CSS) because the products comprise multiple services and those services are written in various languages (the best language for that particular task).
•You’ll work on Linux or Mac: choose whichever platform makes you the most productive.
•You’ll use your favorite IDE or editor
•You’ll work as part of a small team (2-3) building a feature, or reviewing open source community PRs, or improving performance, etc., in four-week development cycles, and then you’ll cool down between cycles doing self-directed learning, improving your tools, or maybe even hacking up a demo of an exciting new idea of yours.
•You and your team will use GitHub issues and ZenHub to track and plan the work, Figma for UI design, CircleCI for continuous integration, Docker Hub for the resulting images, and of course Slack and Zoom. You’ll have a weekly all-company (Zoom) meeting to stay current on all the things.
•As an engineer, on-call responsibility is shared among all engineers in the organization, currently one week every three months.

Must Have Skills:

•5+ years of Software development experience
•2+ years of Golan development experience
•Expert with technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes.
•Strong understanding of Microservice Architecture.
•Knowledge of one or more of the cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP)
