You’ll be helping to analyze, design, develop, test, and support complex application software as you work directly with the Senior Director of Software Development and our development team in Manila (no travel required). We work out of a beautiful office building in the heart of Silicon Beach in the Los Angeles area, have additional offices in India and the Philippines, and offer full benefits including flex hours.

- Digging deep into technical details to troubleshoot, optimize, and design and implement innovative software solutions.
- Solving tough technical challenges in a startup-like atmosphere with a highly collaborative team.
- Proactively eliminating roadblocks and successfully handling multiple competing priorities in a fast-paced environment

Required qualifications and skills:

- Master’s or Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field and 7+ years relevant work experience OR 10+ years relevant work experience (including 3+ years solid work experience in any combination of Java and Kotlin).

- Experience working with Agile methodologies.
- Strong verbal, written, communication, and time management skills.
- Be self-driven and able to deliver high quality results in a timely fashion. (Obviously from these requirements, the ability to multitask is essential!)
- Have a creative approach to problem-solving and be resourceful and tenacious enough to find a solution when nothing seems to work.
- Passion and pride for building a great user experience.
- Strong leadership and the ability to mentor other engineers.

Desired qualifications and skills (pluses):
