Job Description:

About us:

At Clarabridge we support your autonomy, independence, and growth. As a purely commercial firm, there are no timecards or clearances, and we offer unlimited PTO and flexible work arrangements. Professional development opportunities include conference travel and dedicated time for independent projects. Perks include free coffee, sodas, and snacks, a pool table, waffle Fridays, a gym, and proximity to the Wiehle Avenue Metro station. Finally, as a member of an engineering team at a medium-size company, you will be able to have significant direct impact on technology and customers and will help shape the direction of our product at Clarabridge.

About the role:

As a Senior Software Engineer on the Clarabridge Platform scrum development team, you will be collaborating with other progressive engineers to bring our software to the next levels of scalability, performance, security, and functionality. This stack processes very large amounts of data using a variety of open-source technologies such as Java, Elastic, Kafka, Spring, Docker, Kubernetes, Postgres, Jenkins, Ansible, and others. In this role there is lots of opportunity for growth - you will start with responsibility for both story-level and epic-level work, and broaden out from there. As with all of our engineering roles, you will have influence on design and implementation and will be able to both mentor and be mentored.

About the team:

We are a scrum shop and happy to teach and mentor if you don't have previous scrum experience. If you do have scrum experience, then you'll be happy to know that we do full scrum, complete with sprint planning, review, retrospectives, daily scrums, backlog refinement, and planning poker. We also embrace XP development methodologies and put great value on XP development principles. We are proud to be recognized with a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award for the Best Places to Work in 2022.

About you:

You are a candidate with a proven track record of building scalable data processing applications. Specifically, you have:

Bachelor's degree in Computer Science

5+ years of relevant software engineering experience

3+ years of active and recent Java+Spring experience (other languages and frameworks are a bonus)

Additionally, you have experience in at least a few of the following areas:

Unit, integration, acceptance, and performance testing

CI/CD with Jenkins

Elastic, Solr, Lucene querying and optimization

Containerized workloads running in production, ideally with K8s. SDN plugins experience is a plus

Logging/Metrics in distributed applications, for example ELK, Prometheus, and Grafana


Terraform, Ansible, CloudFormation
