C# – Senior Backend Software Engineer
The colleague we are searching for will join a project’s development team as a senior software engineer. You will design solutions to complex or unusual problems; the work will range from high-level architectural design to low-level performance optimizations, and will require considerable ingenuity and judgment. Our engineering team is highly collaborative and closely aligned to our goal of enabling communities to more easily improve health and economic well-being. At Asemio, you will be in a position to work on virtually all aspects of projects and have a strong voice in product and technology strategy.
About the work
You’ll be working on a software system for a career and technology education center. The system needs to handle information at scale, safely. We deal with real transactions that impact people’s lives.
The application’s presentation layer is developed in ReactJS, the business layer in C#/.NET Core, and the data layer is PostgreSQL.
Skills and experience
Education and professional experience:
- BS degree in computer science or related technical field, or equivalent practical software development experience.
- At least five years of professional software development experience.
You know the C# language inside and out, both the pretty and the ugly. You can tell when a piece of code is inefficient and you know how to optimize it. You’re constantly thinking about the fragile balance between readability, maintainability, and efficiency while writing code.
You will be asked to break down technical concepts in a conversational manner so that anyone can understand. You should be able to explain the impact of technical decisions on business workflows and users. You see software as merely one of many tools to help our partners.
Programming experience and technical communications requirements:
- Strong computer science fundamentals.
- Excellent ability to explain complex concepts to others.
- A strong intuition when it comes to code organization.
- Mastery of C#.
- Proficiency with SQL, relational databases, and data modeling.
- A solid understanding of .NET and .NET Core.
- Experience with Entity Framework.
- Experience with GraphQL is a plus.
- Experience with Google Cloud Platform, AWS, Docker, containerized applications, and other DevOps technologies is a plus.
- Experience with continuous integration and delivery pipelines (e.g., CircleCI) is a plus.
- Experience with collaborative, iterative, and human-centered processes (e.g., agile, extreme programming, human-centered design, continuous quality improvement) is a plus.
- Participation in the larger tech community, such as contributing to open source projects, or involvement in industry events is a plus.
- Ability to actively engage with less experienced developers to both learn from and impart skills and wisdom to is a plus.
- Community volunteer experience is a plus.
