What are we building?
We're building a new Payments Platform for Northwestern Mutual(NM) - Enterprise Payments Network (EPN) using the latest technologies on AWS.

Tech stack and dev tools we are using are Node.js, Typescript, Kafka, DynamoDB, Lambda, Kubernetes, Postman, Kevlar, Cucumber...

Whoever take up this position will have a chance to influence those decisions.
The EPN program has several agile-scrum teams that operate together as a part of a program organized using the Scaled Agile Frameworks (SAFe). On your scrum team there will be engineers holding roles as scrum master, devops, QA, and leads. There will also be a business analyst/product owner. We have a testing group outside the teams as well that help us coordinate and test the larger platform and integrating teams.

This position is a Milwaukee corporate office position. We are currently working entirely remotely due to covid. Until it's determined to be safe this position will remain as a remote position, with office time voluntary.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

NM has always been known for it’s culture. To this day, I have still not received a “no”, when asking a colleague for a lunch or coffee meeting. Networking was an invaluable part of my internship experience that allowed me to determine where I wanted to go within the Cyber Security domain.

I started as an intern and worked my way up. Northwestern Mutual made it so easy to network and learn, then they empowered me to go out and achieve.
