Ref No.: 17-00048
Location: Stamford, Connecticut
HSI is seeking a Software Engineer for our Client located in Stamford, CT. The Software Engineer will function as the technical expert within Products and Services, Company's innovation group. Products and Services functions much like an autonomous startup within Organization. You will have a seat at the table driving our business decisions and helping us bring new products to market. This is an ideal role for a software developer that aspires to be a startup founder in the future.

You Will:

Collaborate with your peers to brainstorm new ideas and then evaluate the merits of each idea through an iterative development process.
  • Work on a team that builds and deploys whatever is necessary to validate a business concept (this team prides itself on self sufficiency and independence).
  • Be responsible for the execution of your ideas from start to finish and ensure that a measurable outcome is reached.
  • Work with other departments to transition your MVP into a scalable solution when a successful idea is discovered.
  • Primarily build software that supports consumer facing web applications. Experience with APIs and mobile apps is required.

You Are:

Innovative– You have strong creative mind and the new and unknown is exciting to you. You are comfortable filing any gaps with minimal supervision and direction.
  • Analytical – you are a fanatical truth seeker that uses data to form an opinion and, more importantly, you change your opinion when new results lead you to a different outcome.
Organized - will drive the business and technical requirements, development and release activities related to new products, including internal communications.

Technical- this role is expected to write both front end and back end code. If you are familiar with Java/Grails, AWS and Git you will fit in perfectly. You will work with our frontend developer to integrate UI components so you should be comfortable with basic HTML, JS and CSS.
