Job Description

Core Responsibilities

As an engineer on our team you will collaborate with designers, QA analysts, product managers, and engineers at varying levels of the organization to guide solution design and technical requirements.

The Xfinity Recommendation Platform Team:

  • We value diversity of opinion over group consensus
  • We value being able to pursue a plan everyone can live with over everyone agreeing that the plan is the best one
  • We start from the assumption that someone, somewhere has already figured out a solution to this problem; we value using their results over rediscovering them ourselves
  • We value actively and humbly seeking and appreciating honest feedback over preserving our egos
  • We value building iteratively and elicit feedback over delivering a "finished product"


Minimum Qualifications:
  • 3 + years of experience with Java (JAX-RS or Spring Boot).


Preferred Qualifications:
  • Experience with writing RESTful API specification and a strong understanding of the HTTP protocol
  • Capability to debug code and triage production issues using system traces/logs
  • Ability to use Command Line Interface for a variety of operations
