Lead Software Engineer - Studio at Clarabridge
Reston, VA, US

As a Lead Engineer on the Studio scrum development team, you will be leading a talented group of front end and back end developers in the creation of the next versions of our powerful-but-user friendly analysis software.  The technology stack is comprised of many open-source technologies including Java, Mongo, Angular, Jenkins, Spring, and others.  This is a hands-on, deeply technical role that includes architecture, design, and implementation responsibilities.  Depending on your background and interests, this role could include people management responsibilities in addition to technical leadership, but that is not a requirement.  There is lots of opportunity for growth, mentoring, collaboration across teams, and influence on broader technical initiatives as well.


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.


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)
  • 2+ years of Angular experience (enough to knowledgeably influence Angular codebase evolution)

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

  • Unit, integration, acceptance, and performance testing
  • CI/CD with Jenkins
  • Mongo
  • LDAP, OAuth, SAML, JWT
