Your Impact

As a Senior Software Engineer on the Business Technology team, you’ll design and build the engines that drive our business. You will create custom applications and back-end microservices that will allow internal business leaders to make data-driven decisions. You will build data pipelines to generate near real-time metrics. In addition, you will deliver real customer value while pursuing ‘high marks’ on these quality attributes: availability, scalability, interoperability, modifiability, performance, security, and testability.

What You'll Do
  • Work with world-class engineers to solve challenging problems using cutting-edge technologies.
  • Participate in an agile environment with small, self-managed teams and a mature development process.
  • Design and build sophisticated, distributed, microservice architectures in the cloud. These are custom applications and back-end services that support the company's operations and business needs. 
  • Implement transactional or eventually consistent stores that provide well-encapsulated domain object semantics.
  • Build highly scalable and performant data pipelines that leverage serverless and containerized compute that balance cost, latency, and duration.
  • Evaluate whether existing software tools on the market can solve a business problem, or whether custom code is needed (buy vs. build).
Who You Are
  • A proven engineer with 7+ years of hands-on software engineering experience including having designed and built enterprise-level software applications.
  • Passionate about building software and solving hard problems using Python, Java, C#, or C++.
  • Have experience with multiple software stacks throughout your career and are willing to adapt to new ones.
  • Have the ability to design and communicate external and internal architectural perspectives of well-encapsulated systems using tools such as architecture/design patterns and sequence diagrams.
  • Have experience designing and operating software in a cloud provider such as AWS, GCP, or Azure.
  • Have API design and data model implementation experience, including how to scale out, make highly available, or map to storage systems.
  • Have experience using Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) with an emphasis on a well-maintained testing pyramid.
  • Have experience coordinating with product management to ensure dependencies can be satisfied across teams and functionality.
  • Approach software from a systems perspective and have the aspirational goal of everything being ‘well-crafted.’
  • Have experience operating in an Agile environment. 


Even Better If You…
  • Have experience with ‘Big Data’ technologies such as: Kafka, AWS EMR, Apache Spark, DataFlow or Pipeline Systems, Columnar Databases, ElasticSearch, NoSql stores.
  • Have experience implementing custom integrations with third party back-office solutions such as Salesforce.
  • Know how to identify, select, and extend 3rd party components (commercial or open source) that provide operational leverage but do not constrain our product and engineering creativity.

An Insider's view of DISCO

What are some social events your company does?

I'm part of an employee group called the DISCO Ambassadors. We represent employees’ voices, interests, and opinions and help them connect, especially as we are growing quickly. We have happy hours, executive Q&As, yoga classes, sports teams, and are working on more to encourage cross-functional collaboration and drive our company culture.

Zach

Manager, Sales Development

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I put real effort into staying close to my team. When I joined DISCO, I scheduled meetings with each team member and I meet with each new hire class. They know I have an open door policy and will support their growth at DISCO. I do weekly standups to share recognition and updates, as well as hold quarterly focus groups to gauge how we are doing.

Tim

Our Product Delivery team is made up of people who are very smart and passionate about their craft, whether it's software engineering, product management, or design. These folks come into the office energized by the challenge of solving hard problems. They love what they do in our open and collaborative space where they make amazing software.
