Title: Senior Associate Software Engineer/Senior Lead Software Engineer
Location: Chicago, IL 60602 - Onsite 3 days per week
Duration: 6 Month Contract to Hire
Must Haves:
  • 5-8+ years of overall software engineering experience
  • 4-6+ years in Site Reliability Engineering
  • Experience developing, supporting, and managing cloud technologies
  • Experience working with onshore/offshore teams
  • Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) experience, which is the platform they currently use, OR Microsoft Azure since they working to move over to Azure soon
  • 5+ years of experience working with Java, React, Spring Boot, and any other website technologies
  • Ability to work flexible hours when needed (may have to take SWAT calls outside normal business hours + will be in on-call rotation once every couple of months for 1 week at a time)
  • Really needing someone who has developed, supported, and managed cloud technologies
  • Not looking for someone to develop the application from the ground up, but someone who understands the architecture and has the drive to engage other teams and get issues resolved + can troubleshoot.
  • Must have an application background, financial experience is preferred, who can understand how the application, transfers, and logins work.  NOT someone who has developed a transfer between applications - that is a totally different role.
  • Will be working with developers and architects - should have development background to understand how things are being developed. 
  • This resource won't be talking directly to clients, but talking to other business partners internally. 
  • They will need to be on SWAT calls for major incidents
  • Frequency depends - they do have a rotation for on call shifts between offshore and onsite resources - so won't be on 24-7.  It will likely be a weekly basis rotation - once every couple of months they will be on call for a week.
  • Need past operational experience
  • Experience with Kafka and Datastage
  • Angular or React
  • If they managed mission critical applications, but don’t have experience with either of these, they would consider them, as well
  • Experience managing a financial website
