Job Details

Senior Software Engineer

Location: Lehi, UT

As a Software Engineer at Workfront, you will work with your Engineering team and partner with Product Management to take ideas for Workfront’s products and turn them into realized features in our Work Automation Cloud platform. You will work in an Agile environment and estimate assigned work, create OO designs, provide task breakdowns and implement features and micro-services.  

As a Senior Software Engineer, you are more than just a coder. In addition to your software engineering responsibilities, you are also expected to guide a small to medium-sized team to deliver in a product area by helping identify dependencies and risks for the group, being a planning consultant to the project managers, recommending improvements to our engineering practices and helping other engineers become more proficient in solving specific problems.

A Typical Day in Your World:

  • Meet with your team and tell them the awesome things you did yesterday and what unspeakably incredible things you will complete by this time tomorrow.
  • Create new features using our development technologies that will delight and inspire marketers, IT professionals, and other knowledge workers worldwide. 
  • Create engineering designs that solve complex problems.
  • Fix occasional bugs in our SaaS platform - when your day was only somewhat less than awesome and unspeakably incredible.
  • Debate the optimal design of an ideal user experience for a variety of unrealized features identified by our Product friends. Or propose some ideas of your own!
  • Help QA and other software engineers find the best way to test your work to ensure that, not only does it work as advertised, but will continue to work and perform at mass scale when thousands upon thousands of people are using it at the same time.
  • Lead discussions with your team about what emerging tools, technologies and processes are coming that may impact how we improve our products and our SaaS platform in the future. 
  • Provide your well-considered opinions to the creation and modification of our technology roadmaps.
  • Have a fabulous lunch with people you respect and admire. Enjoy a free soda. Or 10 because, hey, they’re free!
  • At the end of a release, as the rest of the company is validating that, in fact, you and your team’s work is indeed awesome and unspeakably incredible, take some time to do some research, train in a new technology or even play a game – em, we mean participate in a team building exercise – with your team.

To Land This Job You’ll Need:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering (or equivalent education) or equivalent work experience.
  • 5-7 years of programming experience with 2+ years recent experience in Python technologies.
  • Demonstrate sound knowledge of other technologies in use at Workfront (Java, Spring, Docker, AWS, GCP, etc.). 
  • Experience with data technologies (RDBMS, NoSQL, Kafka, ElasticSearch).
  • Be able to speak to a time when you were able to dive into someone else’s code and make an optimization to it without rewriting the whole thing.
  • Ability to describe concepts and whiteboard designs dealing with high-availability and redundancy.
  • Experience researching solutions to complex problems and pitching your ideas to senior team members.
  • Ability to demonstrate a high level of ownership for the entire SDLC; including QA, build, deployment and support of production systems.

Now, Blow Our Minds:

 

  • Have a unique experience in real-time or massively distributed systems, public cloud or PaaS systems like AWS, GCP or Azure, databases or big data.
  • Demonstrate extraordinary communication skills to the point where we feel that, not only can you talk to engineers, but to the CEO and everyone in between and do credit to our organization.

 

  • Convince us that you have successfully led measurable and, preferably, dramatic improvements in the engineering practices of a software team and that you have the passion and drive to do it again.

 

  • Show that you are a person who, upon seeing a problem, moves quickly to solve it instead of waiting for permission and specific instructions from others.
