Quickly maturing startup seeking like minded Sr. Backend-leaning Fullstack Engineer! PacketFabric redefines how companies procure, consume, and manage their network connectivity. The technical team is a small, talented, and close knit group and we need a team member to help us accomplish our goal of making the best darn carrier network on the planet.


Description



  • As a well rounded software engineer, you should definitely be the type that appreciates diversity in your day, and challenges outside of your comfort level! A typical day in the life of a PacketFabric senior software engineer might include these types of activities:

  • Designing a deterministic lifecycle workflow for our next product offering.

  • Writing core platform code for a new feature, and unit tests for functionality.

  • Refactoring and improving existing code for performance and simplicity. For example, breaking a large method into smaller, more maintainable and easily tested methods.

  • Building command line tools to help network engineers better manage network state.

  • Researching additional ideas, you may have to improve the product/platform overall and sharing with the team.

  • Interacting with customers and/or sales on a bug in the software, quickly resolving it, and coordinating across the team to push a fix.

  • Working with backend engineers and discussing quirks in network protocols and network interconnection which translate rapid API and UI changes.


Requirements



  • The right candidate will have an abundance of hard core programming skills, have solid instincts for API usability and design patterns.

  • Very comfortable using Git in a team environment (i.e. pull-requests, branch management, rebasing).

  • Experience working in an environment leveraging remote communication collaboration tools like Slack, Zoom etc.

  • Never being afraid to venture boldly where none have gone before and develop code where there are no previous libraries to draw from.


Preferred Experience



  • A huge plus for actually doing any router/switch configuration or infrastructure automation.

  • Previous exposure to layer 2/3 networking protocols and concepts such as IPv4/6, VLANs, VPNs, BGP, etc.
