The Ideal Candidate

Entersekt is looking for a senior software engineer who is borderline fanatic about engineering world-class software systems. You will join a team of very talented developers and help fast-track the building of scalable and secure products in the form of microservices which run in Kubernetes and are predominantly written in Golang.

Entersekt is a leader in our domain, with a global presence, so we set the bar high. The more of the following you can offer, the better suited you will be for the position.

The Role

You will help deliver features for an Entersekt component team that builds customer authentication solutions (Transakt) involving both mobile devices and backend services. Your primary focus will be modernizing some of the core back-end components and building new functionality to align with the product architecture. This will include working with other teams to simplify the integration of mobile authentication into Entersekt's other products.

Successful candidates for the role will generally possess the following qualifications and skills:

  • 5+ years' experience with one or more general purpose programming languages (for example, C#, Java or similar)
  • Golang development experience
  • Linux experience is required
  • Knowledge of unit, integration and performance testing
  • Experience in designing and building generic, reusable and configurable software components
  • Experience in integrating with systems via REST APIs
  • Experience with container technologies like Kubernetes, Docker and Helm
  • Strong understanding of SOLID design principles and architectural design patterns
  • Experience with Agile development methodologies like Scrum
  • Exposure to the following would be advantageous:
    • Java development
    • Microservices architecture
    • Running applications in the cloud (AWS, Azure)
    • Cryptography and PKI
    • gRPC and Protocol Buffers
    • Instrumenting software to facilitate metric reporting and tracing with technologies like Prometheus, Grafana and Jaeger
  • A software/engineering qualification (for example, a Computer Science degree) is preferred

Personality Attributes

  • Hungry and eager to make a difference at a technical and operational level
  • A healthy self-esteem – you will be challenged by some bright minds on a regular basis
  • Good communication skills – you will need to explain your ideas to your team
  • The ability to get things done – we don’t like to micromanage, but we expect you to do the right thing
  • A tendency to think outside the box – innovation is valued highly at Entersekt
  • A preference to work in a team rather than by yourself
  • An attitude of being proud of your code and taking ownership
