Is your idea of the “big picture” more of a massive billboard than a framed 8 x 10 photo? We’re seeking a Senior Backend Engineer who is ready to take control of large-scale programs and applications for one of our clients in Denver, CO.

Here’s the thing – large companies have a distinct need for help with their massive technology functions. Whether it’s SAP, a Java application, or SharePoint, these businesses require talent who can keep them up and running smoothly. If you have the breadth of knowledge it takes to work at the enterprise level, our client’s opening is waiting.

Our intent is to break out of the traditional (and cerebrally painful) ways of the past, and to leverage technology as a means to deliver game changing innovation and improvements to the financial services industry.

We’re a Kotlin shop – building cloud based services, but if you’re experienced in any of the JVM based languages we should talk. Agility is a key characteristic necessary to fulfilling our goal of delivering best of breed solutions.

We’re looking for self-driven, critical thinkers with the ability to deliver. The Senior Backend Engineer is responsible for designing, building, deploying, and troubleshooting our solutions. This is a full-time position based out of our downtown Denver office.

  • Work closely with a team of people to modernize outdated processes and improve user experiences
  • Design, build, support, and document new features, ensuring we’re building the right product for our customers
  • Work to understand requirements & develop them into working features
  • Must have 5 years of programming experience in languages such as Java, Kotlin, Scala, and/or Groovy
  • Domain Driven Design

  • Experience with fintech, financial applications, banking, or mortgage software products is a plus
  • Enjoy working in agile methodology and comfortable with the scrum process
  • Bachelor degree in Computer Science, Engineering, etc.
  • Minimum of 5 years of software development experience
Base Salary Range:  $115K – $135K (includes full benefits and bonus)
