Job Description

About the Team
The team you will be joining is autonomous and composed of people with different backgrounds, including backend, front-end and robotic. The team works in an Agile environment and is responsible for the orchestration of the various user workflows that we currently have in our platform or any new workflow that the product team might want to implement in the future. We design, implement, deploy and maintain the services responsible for the coordination of simulations and analysis. Also, we work with the product manager to conceptualize the different parts that define a workflow (Test Suite, Simulator, Stack-Under-Test, Rules, Metrics, etc.).
Our team DNA
We like our python code modern, typed, flake-ed and black-ed. We like thorough unit testing; we think that "ship it" is more important than "it's not perfect yet", we are pragmatic programmers. We believe that DevOps is a culture and not a role or team, and everyone embraces it. We prefer incremental changes and iterations over long development cycles. We love getting our backlog done, and we help each other to achieve it. We don't know everything, and we are always eager to learn more from each other or on our own. We are not afraid of exploring new technologies that could help us to deliver faster and better.
What you will do
As a Cloud-native software engineer on our SaaS platform, day to day, you'll be expected to: define, design, implement and integrate significant features, either alone or working with other members of the team. You'll investigate and solve complex system issues and bugs. You'll provide code and design review for other team members. You'll help to develop and improve our CI/CD systems. You'll contribute to maintaining high technical standards, e.g. overall architecture and design patterns, continuous build systems, coding standards, etc. You'll work collaboratively with other teams across the company to coordinate development efforts and best practices.
