Full Stack Engineer - REMOTE

Why you want to work at Flexion:

We're looking for a full-stack engineer with an unwavering passion for agile development and automation. Most of the work we do at Flexion is on large-scale, enterprise-wide systems (both commercial and government)-this project in particular will help ensure that millions of Americans receive high-quality healthcare.

Flexion is an agile software company that's been delivering excellence for over 24 years. Our company culture is built on autonomy, trust, and transparency. We empower self-directed teams by hiring people like you who can solve complex problems through collaboration. This means lending a hand and flexing your multi-skilled muscles (research, content, business analysis, information architecture, etc.) as needed. Every member within a cross-functional team is a leader who takes responsibility for the entire team's success, which mirrors the company's overall low bureaucracy structure.

What the job looks like:

You'll be part of a multi-disciplinary foundational components team tasked with improving DevOps and software engineering practices for government enterprise systems in healthcare. We strive to automate all things and build the highest quality software systems with modern, cloud-native tools and emerging technologies. The project work is primarily remote but may require some client on-site work estimated at < 10%.

  • You collaborate with team members to develop tools that support several product development teams across a broad line of business. At times this will be application development or infrastructure as code. At other times you will have a consultative role, developing recommendations with partners and customers.
  • You swarm and pair with your team to design, code, test, debug, deploy and document software in an agile environment, including application framework components.
  • You provide expert troubleshooting services and support product development teams as diagnostic experts to help reduce the severity and duration of significant incidents and to understand and document incident root causes.
  • You contribute to the design and architecture of software and infrastructure to ensure projects meet goals for security, scalability, maintainability, availability, and resiliency. You clearly articulate and present the implications of design and architectural decisions, issues, and plans to program leaders and stakeholders.
  • You collaborate with other teams in the organization to define supporting infrastructure and software tools needed to run and monitor software in a large-scale environment. You socialize and coach cloud services tools, solutions, and services.
  • You learn and analyze new technologies and industry best practices to identify suitability for adoption by the development team, our partners and customers.
  • You develop reusable patterns and encourage innovation that will increase team velocity.
  • You drive a quality mindset within the team.
  • You use your excellent communication skills to build relationships with other teams.
Why we want to hire you:

You can design small pieces as you go, while still thinking about how they fit into the whole. You welcome change as a positive thing and never look at anything you deliver as "final." You understand when "good enough" really IS good enough, without ever compromising on the overall product quality. You want to work with team members who challenge and support you every day. You demonstrate an unwavering commitment to automated code coverage.

You have these attributes:
  • A history of technical leadership, excellent communications, relationship building, and a positive attitude.
  • A self-starting, go-getter attitude.
  • Passionate about learning new technologies and the ability to do so quickly.
  • Dedicated to agile engineering practices.
  • Write tested, high-quality code efficiently.


You have these skills and experiences:
  • Production programming expertise with several of the following (experience in all not required): Python or Javascript or Node.js or React or Angular or Java.
  • Expertise in building APIs using a microservices architecture.
  • Senior-level experience developing cloud application architectures, especially AWS.
  • Experience with automated unit testing, end-to-end testing, smoke tests, and application monitoring.
  • Demonstrated success using design patterns and software engineering best practices.
  • Some knowledge of and experience with:
    • Virtualization and containerization with Docker.
    • Infrastructure as Code, preferably Terraform, AWS CDK, GitHub Actions.
    • Core Linux networking, shell scripting, and administration skills.
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Information Technology Management or Engineering, or other IT-related degree or two (2) additional years of experience in the Information Technology field in lieu of a degree for a total of ten (8) years of experience.
  • 6+ years of application development experience
At Flexion, we live by these principles:
  • Speak openly and honestly with your colleagues and clients about problems and proposed solutions
  • Welcome and handle changing requirements and priorities with little or no warning
  • Collaborate online in small groups about 50% of the time
  • Encourage simple and minimal solutions that keep options open
  • Expect and vocally advocate for quality first
  • Learn new practices and techniques as the situation demands
  • Ensure the teams develop demonstrable software every week or two
  • Do what needs to be done to deliver the product or project without ego or attitude
  • Dig deep to find the root causes of problems so we can create the right solutions
  • Relentlessly improve yourself, your team, and your processes
