Alight Inc.
San Francisco, CA, USA

Senior Software Engineer

Responsibilities

As a full-stack developer, you will play a central role in the design, development, and delivery of new user-facing features that implement stochastic modeling, goal seek, and similar advanced analytics. The ideal candidate will have a passion for creating high-quality user experiences working closely with product owners, UI/UX designers and engineers.

You should have solid experience building dynamic applications and services using JavaScript, AngularJS, and Node.js. As an Alight engineer, you will be part of a small cross-functional, agile team where you will have continued opportunity to learn and grow.

As a growing startup, we look for self-starters who thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment – which means wearing many hats, being able to change direction quickly, and showing an eagerness to learn new technologies as the need arises. In this role you work with a small, collaborative cross functional team – so excellent interpersonal and communication skills are also a must. Most importantly – we look for people who can prioritize, take ownership, and deliver – because it’s a lot more fun to get things done.

Skills and Requirements

  • 3+ years of solid experience with Node.js or developing backend services or APIs using other technologies
  • Solid experience with JavaScript and one of the major JavaScript MVC frameworks (Angular, Ember, React, Backbone)
  • Proficient at creating self-contained, reusable, and testable modules and components
  • Writing automated tests to verify expected behavior
  • Strong grasp of software engineering principles and practices
  • Prior experience with or understanding of REST (or designing APIs) highly desirable
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or equivalent
  • Experience with NoSQL database technologies is a plus
