We’re open on background but what we’re looking for is experienced engineers with commercial

experience in Javascript / Python development, AWS, CI/CD, distributed systems, event driven

applications, micro-services, container orchestration and event-sourcing.

As a Senior Software Engineer, you are responsible for participating in the development of product

features through all the phases of the software development cycle, working alongside the product team,

customer success team, and other senior engineers. You’ll have a strong working knowledge of several

aspects of software development, from designing, coding, testing to DevOps. You will be comfortable

working side by side with other internal stakeholders, making decisions together in order to quickly deliver

valuable working software to Agyle Time customers.

To succeed in this role you will be agile and retrospective, and not afraid to identify what we’re doing

wrong so we can fix it, and what we're doing right so we can make it even better. You are impact and

delivery driven. You’re thoughtful and pragmatic, able to make the right prioritisation decisions balancing

new technologies, opportunities for improvements, and delivery timelines. Having you around makes

everyone better.

As part of our engineering team, you’ll be helping us to deliver an exciting product. This role is diverse with

plenty of growth potential and the ability to learn several cross-domain skills.

You’ll join our team as a senior member and take ownership of aspects of our technology. In addition, you

will:

 Work in cross-functional product teams responsible for the discovery, delivery and validation of

product features.
