Job Description

Programmer/Analyst II 

This is an estimated 3 months contingent/temporary position in Seattle, WA and is offered through Volt Workforce Solutions. We are among the largest staffing companies in the US for contingent/temporary and direct hire placements, and support many of the top rated Pacific Northwest companies.

We offer unique opportunities for smart, hands-on engineers with the expertise and passion to solve difficult problems in distributed highly available services and virtualized infrastructure.  At every level, our engineers have a significant technical and business impact designing and building innovative new systems to power our customer’s business critical applications.  

Our team is building new Infrastructure-as-a-Service technologies that operate at high scale in a broadly distributed multi-tenant cloud environment. Our customers run their businesses on our cloud, and our mission is to provide them with best-in-class compute, storage, networking, database, security, and an ever-expanding set of foundational cloud-based services.

As a Software Engineer on the IaaS Platform team, you will be involved in all stages of product development, working with individuals from product management, design, documentation, engineering, and QA to help define, design, develop, and release the right products and features, for the right people, at the right time.

From a technology perspective, this is a green-field development environment with a huge amount of autonomy, leaving us free to build and innovate without being encumbered by legacy products and services. We're on a Clojure/ClojureScript stack, and communicate with other services via well-defined, RESTful interfaces. We're into functional programming, immutable data structures, one-way data flow, and keeping things simple.

About You

You work backward, starting from the user. You care about creating usable, useful software that solves real problems and brings delight to users. You have solid communication skills. You can clearly explain complex technical concepts. You work well with non-engineers. You can lead a conversation in a room with designers, engineers, and product managers. You are comfortable with ambiguity. You have a strong sense of ownership, and are able to drive development of new projects and features to completion. You are comfortable working at all levels of the stack.
