Our Engineering team is growing with the addition of a Principal Developer, Architecture. This new senior-level individual contributor role reports to the Director, Software Development, and will play a key part in defining our technology roadmap, scaling our SaaS platform, and evolving the architecture of our successful suite of desktop and web-based applications.

  • Experience building, maintaining, and deploying a product using a service-oriented or microservice architecture
  • Experience in both hands-on and technical oversight roles, ideally working on multiple different products
