Wearable technology is revolutionizing the enterprise and with our platform, Skylight, the largest companies in the world deliver more efficiently, with higher quality, and in a safer environment.

Skylight relies on a robust back-end service stack that coordinates and connects these wearable devices to the necessary business systems already in place. Our platform needs to be flexible enough to run in the cloud or in our customers' data centers. Our customers are big and because of this we need to make sure that we put scalability, flexibility, and security first.

We're looking for talented software engineers to add to the team that tackles these challenges.

* Be an active participant in iterating and improving engineering processes
* Occasionally work with customer-facing teams providing support for technical issues regarding networking, triaging issues, and providing IT consultations for best practices on deploying the solution into customer data centers.

Successful candidates must demonstrate a passion not only for technology, but for our mission to elevate the impact of people in the connected industrial workspace. All applicants must have a BA/BS in Computer Science, a related technical field, or demonstrate equivalent work experience. Candidates hoping to be considered should demonstrate:

* A track record deploying highly scalable, secure, production-grade back-end services

Ideal candidates will build on top of that foundation and demonstrate:

* Knowledge of container orchestration utilizing Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, or similar
* Knowledge of service logging with the EFK stack or similar
* Knowledge of service monitoring with Prometheus or similar
* Knowledge of API management at scale
