Full time Design & UX Front End Development Information Technology Product Software

Job Description

reDock Inc., an early stage SaaS company, has an immediate opening for a senior full stack developer (JavaScript/React and Java/Kotlin/Scala) to help us build our core product. Our software leverages machine learning, search, and other techniques to extract corporate content into meaningful segments that can be repurposed to accelerate document creation and deliver winning business outcomes. As a motivated full-stack developer in a startup environment, you will have tremendous say in the work you do and the direction of our product.

Our target stack is React, GraphQL, Kotlin (JVM based language), .NET, running on Linux with Docker and Kubernetes. Our legacy application runs on .NET and Orchard CMS, so .NET experience is a huge plus.

You will primarily build the backend services for our product, such as to manage content, search it efficiently, handle import and export capabilities, deal with user authentication and authorization, and more. You will integrate your software with systems like ElasticSearch and Kafka. You will also build out our GraphQL API, and implement React components on the frontend. If you have the ability and the interest, you may also be involved with the devops for our solution, and with training and using machine learning for classification, segmentation, and analysis of our data.

As a candidate, you love writing software. You always pay attention to the details. Your code is consistent, beautiful and bulletproof. Your log messages are useful. Your terminal window is always a keystroke away. You likely know regular expressions almost as well as you know your native language. You love playing with and prototyping new technology and frameworks. You understand the difference between blocking and non-blocking code. You love tinkering with stuff. You like a challenge when solving problems and live for that “aha!” moment when you solve a doozy. You are always striving to expand your knowledge and toolset. You have strong opinions and an active mind. You will have great examples of bringing tremendous value to the organizations you have worked for.

Please send us links to live projects, github projects, or other examples of your work along with your application.
