Software Engineering
Gurugram, Haryana, India
Posted on Saturday, August 26, 2023

The Role:

Great products need great architecture. As a CorpEng Senior Backend Engineer, you’ll design and build the engines that drive our business. We hire people that approach software from a systems perspective and have the aspirational goal of everything ‘well-crafted.’ A great candidate can deliver real customer value while pursuing ‘high marks’ on these quality attributes:

Availability, Scalability, Interoperability, Modifiability, Performance, Security, Testability.

What You'll Do:

  • Work with world-class engineers to solve challenging problems using cutting-edge technologies.
  • Participate in an agile environment with small, self-managed teams and a mature development process.
  • Lead the design of sophisticated, distributed, microservice architectures in the cloud.
  • Implement transactional or eventually consistent stores that provide well-encapsulated domain object semantics.
  • Architect highly scalable and performant data pipelines that leverage serverless and containerized compute that balance cost, latency, and duration.
  • Design and implement complex enhancements to extend DISCO’s highly customized billing services.
  • Evaluate whether existing software tools on the market can solve a business problem, or whether custom code is needed (buy vs. build).
  • Design and build data analytics capabilities to drive low-latency key performance indicators.

Successful Candidates:

  • Must design and communicate external and internal architectural perspectives of well-encapsulated systems (e.g. Service Oriented Architecture, Docker-based services, micro-services) using tools such as architecture/design patterns and sequence diagrams.
  • Must have experience designing and operating software in a cloud provider such as AWS, Azure, or GCP.
  • Must have API design and data model implementation experience, including how to scale out, make highly available, or map to storage systems.
  • Must have experience using Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) with an emphasis on a well-maintained testing pyramid.
  • Must have experience with multiple software stacks, have opinions and preferences, and not be married to a specific stack.
  • Must have strong hands-on-keyboard experience with one or more modern programming languages including a JVM language (Java, Scala, Kotlin), Python, and/or C#. Must also have a strong understanding of SQL.
  • Should have experience with ‘Big Data’ technologies such as: Kafka, AWS EMR, Apache Spark, DataFlow or Pipeline Systems, Columnar Databases, ElasticSearch, NoSql stores.
  • Should know how to identify, select, and extend 3rd party components (commercial or open source) that provide operational leverage but does not constrain our product and engineering creativity.
  • Should have experience coordinating with product management to ensure dependencies can be satisfied across teams and functionality.
  • Might have experience implementing custom integrations with third party back-office solutions such as Salesforce.
