About the Team

Our software and technology team works as a small agile team that uses the latest tools to provide a highly analytical and forward thinking product to enhance our cloud platform. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our technology stack and development processes.  We leverage PHP, Laravel, NodeJS, websockets, VueJS, MySQL, Redis to build out a best in class product and platform to enhance and revolutionize the on-premise and virtual conference spaces for high stake meetings. We’ve recently containerized our product stack, migrated to Kubernetes and AWS and implemented CI/CD to streamline our operations and deployment process. In the near term we’re looking to migrate this into a terraform project and begin adding replication and redundancy across regions.

The ideal candidate will have at least five years of experience and demonstrable growth of skills in software engineering and will have a passion for experimentation and constant improvement. This includes someone with a strong desire to learn and implement software best practices and choosing the right tool for the job. This person might not be a subject matter expert on both the frontend or the backend or the server itself, but would be an expert on at least one of them and capable in the rest. We are looking for someone excited to participate and learn from code reviews and try out new things, as well as teaching the rest of us a thing or two. We are looking for a team player that recognizes the importance of working outside of their comfort zone when needed to best benefit the team and to contribute across the entire product stack.

Our team is constantly looking for ways to improve our stack and processes, doing things such as implementing continuous deployment and containerizing our product, self-assessing our agile maturity, and with plans for more improvements every day. If you want to work with a great team of developers dedicated to developing best in breed software, this is the position for you!
