Senior Software Engineer/SDE 3, Socrata Solutions

Apply Online

We are looking for a remarkable Senior Software Engineer (SDE3) to join us!  We’ve built a team of not just the best engineers, but some really awesome humans as well. This team builds cloud software (platform + apps + ecosystem) to accelerate the flow of government data into the hands of citizens, developers, businesses and researchers.

 

This means a few things:

Responsibilities

We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer who can help lead a team to build massively scalable, distributed systems for some of the most important data on the planet. We’re looking for someone who is as equally comfortable diving deep into development, as they are guiding and mentoring other engineers.

 

Qualifications

 

We would love to talk to you if you… 

  • Care about scalable, robust, well-tested code.  
  • Have experience with at least one statically typed language like Scala, Elixir, Java, Go or C++ 
  • At least 5 years of experience building distributed systems
  • Have experience exploring or, ideally working with, database technologies including RDBMS and NoSQL stores.
  • Demonstrated excellence working with database technologies including RDBMS and NoSQL stores. Bonus points for experience with technologies like Elasticsearch, Amazon Athena, Spark, and AWS.
  • Demonstrate experience in owning all aspects of a system lifecycle, from proper design, testing, deployment, metrics and monitoring 
  • Are comfortable working in a heterogeneous development environment where you’ll be working with multiple development languages and technologies.
  • Show a strong track record of shipping scalable software in the face of ambiguity.
  • You want to build customer-facing experiences that encourage transparency and drive better, more efficient governance.
  • You want to work in company where everybody believes in a shared mission and has a strong sense of shared responsibility. 
  • You provide code reviews to your team members, especially any more junior engineers on the team. You are a strong communicator, both within and outside of engineering, with a willingness to both mentor and teach when appropriate.
  • You are comfortable making technical decisions when there is no clear correct answer. 
  • You have a proven track record of shipping great products. 
  • You are not afraid to hold yourself accountable and learn from mistakes. 

 

 

Please apply if you share our beliefs that: 

 

  • Have and enjoy sharing your great sense of humor 
  • Share our passion for our clients’ success (no really, we mean it) 
  • You code your way out of problems, don’t talk about them. 
  • It’s healthy to laugh at yourself. 
  • A flat tire is just an opportunity to change a tire and keep going. 
  • Hard work is necessary. Smart work and long hours are all appropriate, but not a way of life. 
  • There are no experts, just people who are constantly working toward becoming one. 
  • Buzz words like "think-piece", "charette" or "cross-functional synergy” have no place in an engineering team. 
  • You make the most progress as a team, and teams aren’t built out of people who want to shout the loudest. 
  • Checking in code is part of progress, solving customer problems is having impact.
