Description

We get to make cool software, work with the best people, tackle strategic business challenges and build awesome careers. But, most importantly, we get to see our work strengthen organizations to do heroic work and change the world for the better-all while having a lot of fun in the process.

Galvanize was founded in 1987 in Vancouver, Canada, and has since grown to include seven global offices. We build award-winning, cloud-based security, risk management, compliance, and audit software used by some of the world’s largest organizations. But we don’t just make software. We get to spend our days working with the best customers and coworkers, tackling strategic business challenges and building awesome careers. We help our customers change the world for the better, an idea that drives our company culture. And that means helping to create value and impact for more than 7,000 active customer organizations in 140 countries—so they too can create the future they want to see.

The Role

We’re looking for a Senior Software Engineer with extensive experience in Modern JavaScript (ES8+), Node.js, and AWS. We love JavaScript & know that it has evolved drastically. It’s far easier to use, it’s far faster, and much richer in the syntax and capabilities it includes. JavaScript pairs perfectly with AWS and Serverless frameworks and forms the backbone of our current and future product development. You will work on some of the largest production apps in the industry, with direct access to infrastructure as code that automates our multi-region AWS deployments around the world.  You will collaborate with, mentor and guide a team of talented developers to design, build, test and deploy robust, scalable and secure back end APIs that power visually-stunning user interfaces. You’ll also collaborate across teams to build shared services, seamless integrations, as well as tackle interesting scalability and performance challenges.

Qualifications and Experience

  • You have a Bachelors or Masters degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or equivalent experience with 3-15 years of experience. 
  • You have strong ability to coach, mentor and lead fellow developers, provide guidance on technical design and provide constructive code reviews.
  • You have experience designing and building large-scale, high availability, secure web applications using JavaScript & Node.js in an agile environment.
  • You have experience working with Docker, AWS Lambda (or equivalent), and Serverless capabilities. 
  • You have experience working with a complex JavaScript codebase with the help of a strong test suite.
  • You write clean code and care deeply about code quality.
  • You have experience setting up robust testing architectures and detest having bugs slip through to production.
  • You are passionate about learning and continuous improvement.
  • You have creative ideas, a collaborative attitude and strong work ethic.

Bonus

  • You have experience building applications with TypeScript.
  • You have experience integrating with applications using message brokers, queues, and streams.
  • You have experience building secure RESTful APIs and storing data in relational databases (ideally PostgreSQL).
  • You are actively involved in local meetups and contribute to open source projects.
