Boston, MA (or remote with extensive travel to Boston)

  • Up to $250,000 FTE plus benefits for Principal Engineers (hiring at all levels)

  • Focus on scale, automation, and high-availability platforms for members around the globe

  • Introduce modern cloud best-practices to the redesign of complex, mission-critical platforms


On behalf of our client, we are searching for a well seasoned Software Engineer who knows how to lead a team to success while still enjoys being an individual contributor. The ask is to quickly modernize the way we build, deploy, scale, and run software in support of operations around the globe.

On a mission to bring modern cloud best practices to the team, we are looking for an experienced Software Engineer to lead this undertaking. You’ll join a group of diverse, passionate engineers from all manner of backgrounds, responsible for the development, security, and operations of our global runtime platform. Together, we will tackle critical problems that impact everyone.

As a Platform Engineer, you will:

  • Lead engineering teams to deliver a highly-available runtime Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering to support rapid application delivery and operation

  • Build and operate multi-tenant shared services that support software engineering organizations comprised of 100’s of engineers and 10’s of teams (eg. event streams, databases, data analytics, message queues, storage, logging, etc.)

  • Define and champion the development of new services, to reduce platform complexity and mean time to recovery

  • Work on cutting-edge security solutions for critical infrastructure with the largest attack surfaces you’ll find anywhere

  • Automate processes that have never before been automated, both for technology delivery and instrumentation workflows that span classified and unclassified networks

And we think you’d be the perfect contribution to our team, if you:

  • Possess a deep understanding on the design and development of Java (or JVM-based) applications in critical production environments

  • Have experience working cloud offerings (AWS, Azure, or GCP)

  • Bring hands-on experience with PCF (Pivotal Cloud Foundry) and/or OpenShift, and CI/CD technologies (Jenkins, TravisCI, CircleCI, or Pivotal Concourse)

  • Have designed and built scalable containerized applications (Docker/Kubernetes, AWS ECS, Mesos)

  • Bonus points: SECRET / TOP SECRET clearance (not a must have) or hands-on experience with AWS GovCloud

As a Platform Engineer you will join a passionate group of industry and technology leaders solving real-world problems in a truly mission critical environment while working in a flexible environment that encourages you to take risks. You’ll be welcomed into an intelligent, and diverse group and that’s bringing modern software development methodologies to a realm that impacts everybody, everyday.
