GoCanvas is on the lookout for an extremely talented Engineer who has a passion and excitement for SaaS and the mobile revolution. Your mission is to develop and improve the GoCanvas platform, helping make our vision for the GoCanvas product become a reality and unleashing the power of data for our tens of thousands of customers around the globe. Working within a small yet very innovative team environment, you’ll be doing incredibly meaningful work by ensuring GoCanvas continues to innovate and create highly scalable software systems for increased efficiency through each release.
Given our extremely collaborative environment and daily stand-ups, you will be most successful working in our Reston headquarters on a daily basis having face-to-face contact with our team of developers, QA testers, designers, and product managers. A familiarity with Agile methodologies and process would be very helpful. Having a degree in Computer Science and 5+ years of experience, preferably in a high tech startup, is ideal for this position.
We are looking for an Engineer who is responsible for the development and maintenance of a SaaS application portfolio. The ideal candidate is interested in creating innovative applications and loves to work on the cutting edge of technology and be comfortable across a range of technologies. We need someone who is resourceful in getting things done — a productive team member that is both independent and collaborative.
You should be excited about experimenting and pushing boundaries. Our ideal teammates are constantly looking to learn something new and become better at what they do — whether that means doing self-driven research or asking the other individuals questions where they are most knowledgeable.
What You Bring
You will need to wear many hats, be comfortable across the stack, and be able to strategically lead a project team to successful delivery. You should be excited to mentor, influence, and lead a team and you are an expert in at least one language or domain.
