Principal Software Engineer | Front End (optional remote)

Engineering - PM - IT Svcs Washington Seattle, Washington Boston, Massachusetts


We’re looking for a Principal Software Engineer interested in building industrial-strength applications with maintainable code and clean user experiences.

Our team is responsible for the large-scale web app serving as the primary interface for our company’s product. We build data-dense visualizations and deep-dive investigation interfaces for a full range of security & performance users, from entry-level to expert.

We embrace strongly-typed TypeScript and functional paradigms. We tackle tech debt in a timely manner. We give peer code reviews to keep our quality bar high (and we use tools like Prettier and ESLint to automate the pedantic bits).

We offer an engaging and innovative environment in which people are encouraged and supported to collaborate on industry-leading technology and create a world-class engineering team, while they develop and enrich their individual growth. And we’re doing it with creativity, intellectual curiosity, and a sense of humor.

We believe in actively investing in a diverse engineering organization. We are seeking highly talented software engineers from all backgrounds, who bring in their own perspectives, influences, and experiences. Are you as passionate as we are about positive culture and amazing technology? If so, we can’t wait to chat with you.
