Google Cloud Platform (master)
Principal Engineer at Spartez Software has a cross-team impact - you’ll be solving the most challenging (and rewarding) matters like performance and reliability of our Cloud apps, data residency and automatic cross-region data migration, and end-to-end testing.
Of course, not every day will be about re-architecting our existing products, starting a new product or saving the world .
So expect to spend a lot of time working as a part of our product teams and devote your talent to deliver features that will delight our existing customers, or create new opportunities.
You’ll work side-by-side with our strongest people (listed in order of experience, descending ) :
Bartek Z. - Architect, 18+ years in software development and 5+ years in Architect role. You’ll love every interaction with Bartek and be amazed how he combines technical knowledge and product (read : customer) thinking.
Roman L. - Head of engineering, 17+ years in IT, passionate about Cloud technologies and engineering excellence. Roman is experienced in growing leaders, and he is all about delegation and trust!
Grzegorz T. - Principal developer with 16+ years of real software development passion; a frequent ShipIt winner; a person behind our new product - Whiteboards (from the early idea to successful launch), a real coding machine who thinks about products holistically!
Team leaders :
Oleh Zh. - 16+ years of professional experience; calm and knowledgeable; learning and adjusting as he goes.
Vasilii K. - 9+ years in software development, running his own product in parallel and being adored by his team since he stepped into the TL role almost a year ago.
What you will do at Spartez Software :
Build the future - you’ll have a real impact on the roadmap and features of the existing products; you may create new opportunities using 20% time;
Guide teams from a concept to deliverable and improve the way we deliver;
Help us further develop one of our Atlassian Marketplace products! Which one? It depends on your skills, experience, passion and our current investment priorities.
The reality changes too quickly to set such things in stone;
Perform hands-on software development in a variety of technologies (see our stack below) along with the team by implementing features, automated tests, fixing bugs, and doing code reviews;
we don’t pigeonhole people in front-end or back-end silos;
Teach others how to apply architecture patterns, inject security into systems design, meet a high code quality standard, and improve their future performance - through code reviews & knowledge sharing (internal & external);
Contribute to the standards of operational excellence and own quality (performance, scale, rollout plans).
What you need to have :
10+ years of hands-on experience with various front-end and back-end web technologies. Whereas we appreciate the breadth, we expect the depth even more!
Be a software engineer role model : nothing is impossible, it’s a matter of asking the right questions and picking the appropriate technology.
A proven record of complex software solutions is how we check that;
Strong theoretical foundations of computer science - algorithms, computational complexity, OOP. Technologies come and go, good engineering practices remain;
Good understanding of modern Cloud architectures , and practical experience implementing them in GCP, AWS, or Azure;
Deep architectural understanding of web applications , including performance , quality, and security aspects;
Good grasp of SQL and relational databases;
Command of English at level B2 or higher.
