Job Description

meltmedia is seeking a Software Engineer to join us in delivering exceptional, web-based, technical solutions to our customers.

  • The Software Engineer focuses on:
  • Understanding our clients' business objectives
  • Designing, and ensuring the successful development of technical solutions
  • Working with a cross-functional team of professionals
  • Mentoring others in designing and developing purpose-built and cost-effective solutions that can evolve over time

Successful meltmedians are innately curious. This curiosity drives continued exploration of better solutions to common problems, while being pragmatic enough to balance the risk of new solutions with the reliability and familiarity of well-established solutions.

Required Experience and Skills:

  • 5-7 years of experience in the trenches, developing purpose-built software solutions for clients
  • Expert in translating clients' high-level visions into low-level technical details
  • Experience with face-to-face communication with the clients to understand their pain points
  • Ability to design and document innovative solutions, appropriate for the various constraints such as timeline, budget, and the expected lifespan of the solution
  • An understanding there are often simple technical solutions to what may seem like insurmountable problems to our clients
  • Having a goal of making people's lives easier through technology
  • meltmedia is a cloud-first shop, so experience and extensive knowledge in the full AWS stack is crucial

meltmedia's solutions vary based on the needs of our clients. Our custom solutions are a polyglot approach that may use client and server-side JavaScript, Java, Python, and PHP, depending on the needs of each project.

While we maintain solutions of varying architectures, our preferred solutions tend to be server-less based, utilizing many of AWS’s services such as Lambda, Dynamo, RDS, Event Bridge, Step Functions, SQS, SES, SNS, Cognito, API Gateway, ECS, ALB, and WAF. We rely heavily on CloudFormation stacks built using CDK to deploy our infrastructure. In addition to our backend solutions, we integrate heavily with our clients' existing infrastructure such as Adobe Experience Manager, Drupal 8, Veeva, IQVIA, and Salesforce.

There will be ample opportunity to introduce improvements to technology, techniques, and solutions that grow our expertise and ultimately provide better solutions for our clients. An applicant's experiences and the impact they personally had on the outcomes of those solutions, good and bad, will ultimately be the most important factor in determining the right person for this role.

meltmedia believes we can always get better… and we will expect you to believe the same. Whether it’s in providing better solutions to our clients, better experiences for their customers, or better environments for our people to deliver exceptional outcomes. At our core, we live by four key principles: Personal integrity is non-negotiable, success is best measured collectively, everyone deserves enjoyable experiences, and authenticity is a strength.
