Company Description

The best-run companies in North America rely on J9 Technologies to make their applications run faster and better. We are a proven company with a deep history providing application performance management ("APM") and IT Operations Management (“ITOM”) software and services to the largest companies in the US and beyond like like DirecTV, CVS, Southwest Airlines, Boeing, Humana, Big Lots and more.

Job Description

We’re looking for a strong software engineering manager and developer, who has a proven history inspiring their team to rapidly produce high-quality enterprise software applications while contributing as a senior software engineer themselves. Reporting directly to the Founder and CTO of J9, you will drive architecture and development, managing a small team focused on delivering integrations to 3rd party monitoring and analytics tools using Scala, Akka Streams, and React/JavaScript UI. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate specific experience as an agile development “player-coach” leading teams that consistently balance the need for innovation and creativity with the need to ship working product at the end of every sprint. Your managers, executive sponsors and teammates alike will describe you as a strong but fair leader, an exceptional software engineer who leads through example and earns respect through talent and performance, and as someone who is equally as adept at managing up as you are at managing down. Your product owners will think of you as someone who is careful making promises and adept at negotiating scope, budget, and timelines - but also as someone who delivers as promised when you do make a commitment. Some Challenges You’ll Tackle

  • Actively contributing to the adoption of strong software architecture, development best practices, and new technologies.
