This job is no longer available.

As a part of a highly productive team, you will be assisting in adding new features to an active front end webpage that our customers utilize daily.  Using Perl, HTML, Bootstrap, jQuery, CSS, and JavaScript in an agile framework, you will code pages that talk to web services to retrieve data. After the data is returned, you use XSLT to style the results for display to customers. 

Hundreds of Fortune 500 customers use our products daily to make important decisions for their clients.  Customers run searches against our systems 24/7, so strong team members are needed to ensure that our applications run flawlessly and seamlessly around the clock.  Our products are a very important part of a customer’s workflow, so we need team members who are customer focused and dedicated to producing high quality products.

In this role, your responsibilities will include new development, maintenance work, and responding to bugs submitted by customers or our QA teams.

A typical day on our team could include the following:

  • Arrive at work, grab breakfast from our cafeteria, and grab a free cup of coffee or tea from our convenience centers.
  • In our daily scrum stand ups, you will report your development status.  During sprints, you will also help to groom the backlog for a sprint, as well as to help pull stories into a sprint.  At the end of a sprint, you will also participate in the sprint retrospective.
  • Throughout the day, you will continue to work on stories and bugs, as well as attending other meetings as needed.
  • During your lunch hour, you can grab lunch from our cafeteria, exercise in our workout facility, or participate in one of the many sports leagues on campus or other professional groups on campus.
  • During a break in your day, you can take a brisk walk along our beautiful campus to help clear your mind and get some exercise!

We aren’t looking for average engineers for this position. We are looking for team members with a strong work ethic who are customer focused, driven, dependable, passionate, innovative, and curious, shows initiative, and requires little management. We do not want an engineer who is trying to build experience for resumes; we are looking for an engineer who wants to build a career.  As a member of our team, you will enjoy great benefits from the company while working for a manager who cares about you and understands the importance of work life balance.
