Full-Time Software Development Engineer – Socrata Solutions

RichardShermanTylerTech – Posted by RichardShermanTylerTech Anywhere

Job Description

We are looking for a remarkable Software Development Engineer to join us! We’ve built a team of not just the best engineers, but some really awesome humans as well. This team builds cloud software (platform + apps + ecosystem) to accelerate the flow of government data into the hands of citizens, developers, businesses and researchers. With our Socrata solutions, we impact society by enabling governments of all sizes to employ data-driven leadership.

This means a few things:

Software Engineers here work in teams of 4-8 devs to build scalable, distributed systems for some of the most important data on the planet. We’re looking for people who are comfortable diving deep into development, learning from others, and sharing their ideas.

Visa Sponsorship: At this time, it is unlikely that we will be able to provide sponsorships for visas for this position.


  • Build and ship high-quality customer-facing features.
  • Maintain and improve a distributed cloud platform running on AWS.
  • Play an active role in mentoring other engineers.
  • Collaborate with other devs, engineering management, and product owners to design and architect solutions to our business problems.


  • We would love to talk to you if you…
  • Care about scalable, robust, well-tested code
  • Have experience with at least one statically typed language like Scala, Elixir, Java, Go or C++
  • Have significant HTML, CSS, and JavaScript experience.
  • We are currently using React/ES2016 supported by Redux, jQuery, Typescript and Ruby on Rails.
  • Have experience with testing frameworks like Mocha, Chai, Jest, RSpec or similar tools.
  • Show a strong track record of shipping software in the face of ambiguity
  • Have and enjoy sharing your great sense of humor
  • Demonstrate experience in owning all aspects of a system lifecycle, from proper design, testing, deployment, metrics and monitoring
  • Share our passion for our clients’ success (no really, we mean it)
  • Have experience exploring, or ideally working with, database technologies including relational databases (we use Postgres) and NoSQL stores. Bonus points for experience with technologies like Elasticsearch and AWS.
  • Are comfortable working in a heterogeneous development environment where you’ll be working with multiple development languages and technologies. This team owns significant portions of Scala, Ruby, and JavaScript code, as well as periodically touching Python, Elixir and other languages.
  • You solve the problem, not the symptoms.

Please apply if you share our beliefs that:

  • It’s healthy to laugh at yourself.
  • Hard work is necessary. Smart work and long hours can be appropriate, but are not a way of life.
  • There are no experts, just people who are building expertise.
  • Buzz words like “think-piece, charette or cross-functional synergy” have no place in an engineering team.
  • You make the most progress as a team, and teams aren’t built out of people who want to shout the loudest.
  • Owning a software platform is like owning any other complex system (a house, a business, insert favorite metaphor here), it requires observation and maintenance as well as new construction.
