Considerations as we expand will include performance, scale, extensibility, infrastructure, data analytics, and integration points with larger enterprise ecosystem as well as external providers. In addition, you will have direct development responsibility for key framework components. Experience with a wide breadth of technology paradigms and concepts is expected with a focus on data-driven, web based applications a must. The job will be varied and challenging.

* Experience with distributed systems, API integration and modeling.
* Experience with JavaScript, related frameworks (Node, Angular, Meteor) a plus
* Experience with modern MVC (Model-view-controller) frameworks
* Experience with event-driven programming and frameworks
* Experience with a variety of database systems, both relational and NoSQL
* Experience with information security paradigms and implementations
* Experience on performance optimization and tuning of web applications required, databases a plus
* Excellent clarity of thought process and communication ability
* Comfortable expressing and defending points of view while respecting those of others.

These skills are not required but are a plus:

* Experience with data analytics - both tools as well as impact to data structures and implementation
* Experience design multi-channel platforms and web-sites (desktop, mobile).
* Working in a startup or agile development environments
* BA/BS/MS in computer science or related subject area


We pay competitive base salaries and we reward performance. Our salary structure is commensurate with experience. In addition, you will be eligible to participate in our comprehensive benefits program including medical insurance and 401(K).
