Title: Jr. - Sr. Scala Software Engineers (Backend, CI/CD, functional prog., Typelevel stack, & Microservices Arch) ($75K Jr. - $200K Sr.) (100% Remote)
From our start in 2009, Conexess has established itself in 3 markets, employing nearly 200+ individuals nation-wide. Operating in over 15 states, our client base ranges from Fortune 500/1000 companies, to mid-small range companies. For the majority of the mid-small range companies, we are exclusively used due to our outstanding staffing track record
Who We Are:
Conexess is a full-service staffing firm offering contract, contract-to hire, and direct placements. We have a wide range of recruiting capabilities extending from help desk technicians to CIOs. We are also capable of offering project based work.
Description & Requirements
We are redefining the relationship between forward-thinking financial institutions and their customers. We leverage progressive and modern technology and an industry leading product vision to make user-friendly mobile and web apps. We have a first-class API; the same API our web and mobile apps use is the same API that is open to the community to build on top of and extend.
You are infinitely curious and thrive in an environment where you are constantly learning and growing. You want to be somewhere that you are trusted and set up for success every day. You want to be surrounded by other great engineers that drive you to be better every day.
Although you work in a team, you are self-motivated and able to work with independence. You want to own the deliverable from working with the product manager to define the scope all the way through supporting your work in production. You care deeply about your work, your team, and the end user. We value trust and those with a bias towards action. We have a remote-first culture that challenges you each day and supports your growth. We are confident you will love it here.
What you and your team are working on
As a Senior Engineer, your team is at the heart of the effort to build our next generation of services that power a set of critical domains. These services ultimately power our Open API and our online and mobile banking products. Our APIs are first-class-citizens and are consumed by both internal teams and exterior organizations.
Your team is constantly keeping your services up to date, with the newest development, deployment, and release practices to offer exciting user experiences with highly secured data. Your team also collaborates with other teams to build tools and processes that help scale our rapidly growing platform.
About the team
We are committed to creativity, thoughtfulness, culture, and openness—the perfect place to make phenomenal products that have a big impact. Having grown beyond being a startup we have retained all the best parts of our startup roots while maturing and offering the security and benefits of a large, publicly traded company. With an engineering team of less than 100, we place high value on continued education and contribute to, and use, open source projects.
Our team is distributed and that means you can live and work wherever you want– as long as your work hours match US business hours. You’ll get the chance to choose your own tools, work with progressive and modern technologies across the stack, and contribute to products that are used by thousands of people.
