Principal Software Engineer, Authentication

We’re looking for an experienced Principal Software Engineer to provide technical leadership for our cloud-based authentication services engaging with several engineering teams. Authentication services are a key part of the entire JumpCloud product portfolio and provide the foundation for our identity and security solutions.

With JumpCloud’s Cloud Directory Platform, we've taken Zero Trust and made it actionable - from securing the devices our employees are working from, the networks they are communicating through to ensuring the resources they are authenticating against are being accessed by the right person with the right permissions from the right location, on the right device.

The Problems You’ll be Solving:

Our Principals are hands-on, active in the code and think big about Architecture, Design and Distributed Systems Practices. Continuous improvement is a core value at JumpCloud. We challenge every member of our team to be 1% better everyday. 

  • Own the architecture and design of the authorization area, for example, MFA and conditional auth.
  • Lead prototyping and early coding efforts around new technology on the cutting edge of the auth space 
  • Work with product managers to eval up and coming tech and vet product ideas for viability
  • Work with and mentor tech leads and other engineers on three teams, helping them review designs, provide architectural guidance, help with key parts of implementation 
  • Work across the entire organization, in partnership with the Architects and other Principal Engineers to make key technology decisions, address technical debt and ensure engineering consistency in both technology and processes

We’re looking for…

  • 10+ years of commercial software development experience in a variety of languages (Javascript with Vue.js or React; Java, Python, Go, Node, Rust, Scala or C++ on the backend). JumpCloud currently uses Vue.js, Node.js, Go; with Python and Javascript for testing.
  • 8+ years of experience developing SaaS applications in AWS, GCP or Azure.
  • Experience with authentication and authorization protocols such as OAuth, OpenID Connect, LDAP, SAML, SCIM, WebAuthN
  • Experience with infrastructure/deployment management systems such as Puppet, Chef, Ansible, or Saltstack.
  • Experience with container fabrics such as HashiCorp’s Nomad/Consul/Vault or Kubernetes.
  • Solid understanding of RESTful API design.
  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or a related field.

An Insider's view of JumpCloud

What’s the vibe like in the office?

A key trait for us is having an open, positive mind. We believe that taking the road less travelled - or at least exercising that path - will create new, different, and interesting ideas. We ask our teams to always consider the outside-of-the-box solution to a problem and encourage them to try those creative ideas.

Aaron

VP of People

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work with multiple teams across the organization to highlight and recruit for openings at JumpCloud. We like to have a diverse group of people in our interview process. Hiring at pace is a huge goal for JumpCloud so it's essential for us to build connections with all of our stakeholders.

Zeynep

Manager, Talent Acquisition

What makes someone successful on your team?

My team members feel empowered to create, design and execute with a lot of freedom at JumpCloud. This enables them to take an active role in their career development and the development of other team members at JumpCloud.

Courtney

Manager, Learning and Development

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

I'm available pretty much anytime via email, Slack, phone, in person. More than the communication vehicles and time, I really like to dig in on projects with our teams. By working on important issues together as just another voice or hand to help, I think that helps the team feel that I'm accessible to them and there to help.
