Company Description

gloo is a fully-funded startup in Boulder CO that has exited beta and launched our mobile apps (iOS and Android). We are in search of someone to help lead a team of engineers for our backend SOA and analytics infrastructure. You will help us build out this application and work with us to guide its evolution as a key member of our technical architecture council.


Job Description

How you MIGHT spend your day
◾Defining, designing, developing the infrastructure that will house our customers’ content
◾Helping establish a vision and executable plan for our analytics engine with the ability to consume unstructured/structured data and produce meaningful results that will help our customers measure their success, improve their outcomes and make sound business decisions
◾Leading a team of talented engineers so that everyone is as busy and happy as they can be
◾Working with the product team to turn our customer’s vision into reality
◾Working alongside the mobile development team to make sure the puzzle fits together perfectly
◾Applying your best practice experience in test-driven/behavior-driven development to elevate your team to a whole new level
◾Forming a solid understanding of the rest of our technology stack so that your talent can be valuable throughout the gloo community
◾Thinking through a tough challenge over a game of foosball

Qualifications
A bit about you:
◾You have at least 7 years of full-stack experience on JVM (Java/Scala/Groovy/Clojure) based web applications.
◾Your experience building enterprise level SOA architecture
◾You might have played with Scala on Play 2.0 and are excited by the possibilities
◾You have demonstrated competency working with Big Data and producing reporting/analytics output that makes sense – Hive and Hadoop are incredibly useful here
◾Your projects might include web applications, content management systems, ecommerce sites and learning management systems
◾You have a passion delivering high performing, well-architected software that is easy to maintain
◾You thrive in an environment where “what if” is commonplace and feel confined when the rules are already set in stone
◾You have worked in an early-stage company so you know what it means to shift priorities and wear a bunch of hats
◾Open Source tools are your preferred sandbox
◾You are an organized professional capable of managing your time, tasks and activities without daily guidance
◾You have a talent for making sense out of obscurity – you immediately begin executing concepts in your mind the moment someone has an idea
◾Building strong and long-standing relationships is an important part of your being

Anti-Requirements
◾A need for structure and repetition in every work day
◾Using the words, “it can’t be done” in a sentence
◾Believing, “that’s not my job”

Compensation
◾Compensation commensurate with Experience
◾Medical with HSA contribution
