Job Responsibilities:


You'll be responsible for building and maintaining new and existing features in our distributed service architecture. We continue to build new features on top of a modern stack - it consists of a database layer (CouchDB), an application layer (Kazoo and a number of other individual applications), an audio transcoding/call routing layer (FreeSWITCH), and an SBC/proxy layer (Kamailio). Many parts of this stack are written in the programming language Erlang. Communications between components is often over the AMQP protocol; specifically, we use RabbitMQ. In this role, you will spend most of your development time on Kazoo or the other peripherals in the application layer. This will include some front-end development as necessary (largely in AngularJS). We value moving fast and responding to change quickly, so don’t hesitate to propose adoption of new technologies that help us deliver value and functionality to our customers.
Of course, sometimes you might have to spend some time on a cool side-project! Some examples of projects members of our team have built include a fitness data aggregation application to encourage staff health activities, a Chrome browser extension that takes advantage of our platform APIs, or a Mario Kart 64 race stats collector!

  • Associate's Degree or Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, Business Information Systems, or similar field, or equivalent work experience required.
  • 3+ years of development experience
  • Strong understanding of a typical full-service stack
  • Ability to perform code reviews, create detailed plans and willingness to work collaboratively with a development team.
