  • Partner with product, UX and engineering on feature discovery and rapid prototyping to help shape the long term roadmap in the JumpCloud product portfolio.
  • Partner with engineering teams to execute and deliver great products to our customers quickly.
  • Make key technology decisions, inform build vs buy decisions, and inform new product development vs technical debt decisions.
  • Provide expertise in SaaS technologies that must function robustly and at scale.
  • Partner with other Principal Software Engineers in the company to help drive our overall technical strategy.
  • Have a major impact across the engineering org by being a role model developer and mentor for other engineers.

  • Experience with infrastructure/deployment management systems such as Puppet, Chef, Ansible, or Saltstack.
  • Experience with container fabrics such as HashiCorp’s Nomad/Consul/Vault or Kubernetes.
  • Solid understanding of API design.
  • You lead by example, and you’re very capable of rolling up your sleeves and writing production quality code.
