  • Hands-on experience designing and creating Event schemas and services
  • Skilled in designing/building RESTful APIs
  • Ability to write clean, well-designed, and high-quality code in a highly collaborative Agile development environment
  • Being okay with the uncomfortable feeling that comes from learning new things
  • Passion for growing your skills, tackling interesting work and challenging problems

  • Degree in Computer Science or related field

 

What experience we think is nice to have

  • Experience with:
    • TDD and DDD
    • Modern CI/CD Tools (Github Actions, Gitlab)
    • APM tools (Datadog, Appdyanmics, New Relic)
    • Modern Testing Frameworks (Browserstack) 
    • PostgreSQL or other RMDS system
    • Infrastructure As Code (Ansible/Terraform/Packer or equivalent)

Our Pack at Embroker lives our values


  • Pack First
    We succeed and fail as one team. We always optimize for what is best for our entire organization. We communicate honestly and openly, treat each other with mutual respect, and assume positive intent in interactions. 
  • Create Magic
    We deliver delightful experiences at every customer touchpoint and dedicate ourselves to make each one exceptional. We build transformational world-class products by applying our full creativity to find solutions to even the hardest problems. 
  • Be All-In
    We make focused commitments. We are accountable to ourselves and each other to deliver on time. We move fast and attack challenges with relentless positivity. We build things that make us proud.

We believe that systemic structures and practices disproportionately disadvantage the most marginalized people in society — including people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women and LGBTQ people. We believe that these communities must be represented and included in the work we do, to make our Pack stronger, more creative, and improve the way we do business. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
