  • ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY

    SEs are both technical (developers) and social (client-facing). They work directly with Solutions Architects to design and prototype ideas, with engineering teams to tune bespoke software, and with Project Managers to hit delivery targets.

    The SE’s primary responsibility is to carry out the architect’s design. This requires extensive knowledge and deep configuration of our core products, integrations with third parties, complex script writing, and a significant amount of critical thinking and problem solving.

    SE’s also spend much of their time engaged with the customer. This is most often to provide status, work through technical hurdles, and provide expert guidance on our core software.

     

    RESPONSIBILITIES

     

    • Contribute to the design and implementation of components and solutions for customer-specific consulting services agreements, in collaboration with Solution Architects, Project Management, and globally distributed engineering teams.
    • Design-review solutions to ensure best practices, avoid performance bottlenecks, and identify components that could be added to our core product.
    • Assist in unit testing, performance testing, on-site installations, and application configuration.
    • Develop robust ingest scripts (using Groovy) to translate customer-specific metadata into our core objects.
    • Develop utility scripts (primarily using Java, Node.js or Python) to accomplish customer-specific requirements.
    • Create, maintain, and document customer implementations.
    • Respond quickly to critical customer issues.
