Software Engineer at SS&C Intralinks
When finance professionals need to do big deals beyond business boundaries, Intralinks is their platform of choice for content distribution and collaboration. We help power financial markets.
When Whole Foods was acquired by Amazon, they turned to Intralinks to provide their due diligence virtual data room. When Ares Management LLC grew their investor base and raised more than $65B of capital they chose Intralinks to support their capital raising and fund reporting needs.
Intralinks needs you. We’re already the market-leader and we are still on a growth trajectory. We’re investing heavily in R&D to extend our platform and expand our SaaS portfolio. At Intralinks this means a mix of maintaining our flagship offerings with a good dose of pure innovation going into net new offerings. This a great place to get traction in your career, working for a company with pedigree and world-class customers.
Our culture is one of agility. We’ve adopted Scrum and we need people like you to help examine what we do well and what we don’t do so well and identify opportunities to learn and improve. Our teams are self-managed, which means that your input is valued and there are opportunities for trying new tools and technologies to get us there faster. Our technology stack is progressive; CI/CD enables continuous incremental releases.
We love to see a full stack profile in our engineering candidates but we know that it takes time to get to that, so whether you have a front-end or back-end bias, if we are a good fit for each other we will invest in you to get you to that next-level in your professional development. We expect you to come in with a good baseline and a great attitude, and if you have those we’ll help you develop skills, adopt an agile mindset, and have fun doing it.
- Work in a cross-functional Scrum team, informing requirements and design and seeing it all through to implemented code in production.
- Work closely with software architects, challenging their decisions and collaborating with them to optimize technical designs.
- Inspect iterative results and propose improvements to technique, tools, and process.
- Take co-ownership of your Definition of Done with your Development Team member peers and be uncompromising on quantifiable code quality.
- Get to know your customer and empathize with their pain points so that when you solve their problems you share in the satisfaction.
You have to bring these things to the table:
- Some experience. You’ve built something on your own, worked a contract, or have a year or two in a software company. At this point we’re looking for the basics and the right character—we’d like to meet you.
- Some degree of experience with Java and Spring AND/OR some degree of experience with React, (Backbone and AngularJS a plus), Ember, HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, Web Standards—the usual suspects.
- You speak RESTful APIs.
- You know the difference between structured and unstructured data and variations of data models to meet different needs, maybe you’ve already stood up Postgres or Mongo and done some things.
- You’ve worked with Product Owners and Designers and built things together that turned out all right (or maybe they didn’t, but you understand why).
- A collaborative attitude, an ever-growing curiosity, and a desire to win.
You will be tested on this stuff.
It would be great if you also have:
- A Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science.
- Some experience with Selenium, Jasmine, Mocha, etc.
- Some experience with Python and Ruby.
- A solid grasp of the basic principles behind microservice and serverless architectures.
- Non-judgmental familiarity with several operating systems (and command line superpowers).
Be ready to tell us some stories that support the above.
It would be mind-blowingly awesome if you also have:
- Successfully obtained your PSM I certification from scrum.org.
- A Graduate Degree in Computer Science or some other cool technical field.
- Something else that we’d be surprised to learn about you that also qualifies as awesome. (Cliff-diver? Community leader? Artist/musician?)
Surprise us with what you can bring to the table!
