MAX Digital is looking for strong and innovative software engineers to join our agile team. We build complex and compelling web and mobile applications for the automotive industry. Join us and spend your days innovating and building products with important impact. We're looking for curious, collaborative people who are eager to teach what they already know and who jump at an opportunity to dive into new territory.
Successful members of our team are internally driven to finish assignments, make noise when blocked, and are just as eager to learn new technologies as they are to jump in and solve a problem in legacy code, because to them it's all about the success of the team. Those who succeed on our team take risks to go after big rewards and are not afraid to try new things.
What you will do:
As Staff Engineer on our NextGen Engineering team, you will be responsible for keeping a consistent and dedicated engineering focus on the version of our products in use by our customers today. We believe that being innovative does not stop when a product launches.
The Staff Engineer is expert in our technologies and a lead engineer, providing guidance to our Back End team. This requires working with Product Owners on the definition of requirements to develop new SaaS and mobile applications that are disrupting the automotive industry. The Staff Engineer creates actionable technical specifications and is the overall Back-End code owner, assigning work to team members and reviewing their code prior to implementation.
The NextGen Engineering team is also partnered with the MAX Digital legacy teams on transforming our core systems, leveraging the latest technologies. This person is strategic and can play the role of architect, tightly aligned with other engineers across the organization to build innovative consensus. This is a great opportunity to help shape and grow best-in-class automotive solutions.
