Do you have what it takes to harness the power of the internet like a superhero in a comic book movie? We’re seeking a Sr Back End Developer who is ready to make an impact for one of our clients in Denver.

Here’s the thing – the internet is an incredible tool, but it would be worthless without properly functioning websites and mobile apps. Our client relies completely on roles like this to maintain a world-class level of customer service. If you can ensure a company’s online presence is reliable, professional, and free from errors, then this position is right for you.

HOW YOU WILL MAKE AN IMPACT

You are a highly skilled and experienced Back-End Developer with a passion for creating quality, dynamic, scalable, and interactive back-end services and serverless capabilities, including integration with back-end infrastructure, in an agile setting. You thrive in a fast-paced environment with changing priorities and a wide set of responsibilities within the team. You are capable of interacting directly with business stakeholders to define and fine-tune requirements and working alongside other developers, designers, QA, product owners, and scrum masters. You can guide a team to implement features to full completion. You can pick up on new technologies quickly and with little instruction. You are self-motivated and take pride and ownership in your work, in quality, and in investing yourself in others for the benefit of the team.

  • Take ownership of back-end capabilities and drive continual expansion, reuse, and improvement across the board
  • Integrate with backend infrastructure, mostly cloud-based but some on-premise as well
  • Analyze and solve problems across all levels of the stack
  • Produce clean, secure, testable, maintainable, reusable, well-documented code, and participate in and drive regular code reviews
  • Unit-test code for robustness, including edge cases, usability, and general reliability
  • Work closely with Product Owner on data-driven product development
  • Work closely with QA on bug fixing and improving application performance
  • Optimize applications for performance, scalability, security and user experience
  • Continuously discover, evaluate, and implement new tools and technologies to maximize development efficiency
  • Follow Agile development methodology and DevOps practices with an Agile mindset

  • Expertise with CI/CD and automated software pipelines (Azure DevOps preferred)
  • Deep experience with Agile, preferably DevOps
