Junior Software Engineer - 6 Months Project-Based

Associate Level   •   BGC, Taguig

Job Description

Do you thrive in an environment focused on innovation, continuous delivery and platform services? Interested in defining and designing the next generation of systems for Entrego?

Our Software Engineering team is at the heart of Entrego’s business. We have the flexibility to make the technology choices that best provide customer value to clients. As a member of the team, you’ll be involved in these choices. As an example, most teams build RESTful services, typically with simple APIs using JSON. These are usually built on the JVM with Java but some pick Scala, Clojure and Kotlin. We are also decomposing our services into micro-systems to make things easier to maintain and continually deploy. When appropriate, the teams build event-driven, streaming architectures and we also have teams working on front-end solutions, generally using React.js.

We are Cloud-Native. We organize for feature velocity, so wherever appropriate, you will use AWS services like Lambda, Kinesis, ElastiCache, Aurora, DynamoDB and of course EC2, ECS and S3. To further help speed things up, you’ll look to build on top of open source systems and libraries like Redis, Cassandra, and DynamoDB.

Who are we looking for?
