Unanet · Nov 17th 2020
We are seeking a Principal Software Engineer to help us migrate from an existing, lightweight Web API (C# .Net Core) to a new Web API (NodeJS + TypeScript) to support our web apps (Vue.js + TypeScript) and soon-to-be released mobile app. We're looking for a dynamic engineer who is no stranger to building well-designed, performant and effective APIs that support complex business rules/flows. You will start by learning from the experiences of our current team and our current offerings and become familiar with our C# .Net codebase and database architecture. You will work with the existing team to build a shared library with the types and shared business logic that exists in both front-end and back-end applications. As you improve in your understanding of our business logic, you will contribute your API experience and help architect and support more features to our existing SPA and mobile application. You will leverage your experience to establish best practices for Platform/API development and drive our team and codebase to a higher level.
Our Principal Engineers not only help lead, collaborate, and develop their own career, but are also hungry to assist others in the development of theirs as well. You’ll have the chance to set the tone of the platform you’ll be working on.

Collaborate with other teams to build shared microservices that can serve many applications and scale independently

By Day 30
You will immerse yourself in our culture, our product and our tech stack
You’ll work with Product Management, QA and Cloud Ops to better understand our product offering (C# .NET and Node.js) and new web offering (Vue.js, React Native)
You’ll contribute to defining a technical roadmap that takes scalability, testing and performance into account and present a gap analysis of what can potentially be done even better
You’ll become a contributing member of our efficient and effective SDLC process
You’ll take on development items to get your hands in our current Web and API stack
By Day 60
You will work with and understand the nuances of your team
You’ll create and help work on a backlog of technical infrastructure work as related to the platform and API identified in your First 30 Days
You’ll co-create a backlog of work to systematically add new features from which the entire team can pull work items from
