Innovation Senior Software Engineer

For this software engineering role, we are looking for someone to join our future forward concepting team as a contributor and collaborator on new projects. The Future Forward Concepting team looks at a broad range of potential opportunities, seeking to find novel and interesting technology applications to solve real problems our users have.

The ideal candidate for this position would be someone who relentlessly questions the existing methods and techniques for solving problems. Asking “Why?” as a result of a particular interaction or software feature is ideal. We are seeking a collaborator, not necessarily someone who is going to be on the hook for endless tasks in Jira with the rigors and ceremonies of typical software development.

The concepting group may move from project to project, and we would expect the right candidate to be excited by change and the challenge of context switching between many ideas.

Collaborators we’re looking for possess similar traits to those outlined below:

If any of the above sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
