Senior Software Engineer (Remote)

Elite Technical has a client for which we are seeking a Senior Software Engineer for a direct hire position. The client is headquartered in Orlando, FL but is open to the selected candidate working remotely. This client offers an energetic and cooperative based culture with competitive compensation and a robust benefit package.

We are looking for a seasoned team player who is excited to help architect and develop complex and scalable web services and infrastructure but is also capable of putting their head down and quickly implementing product features without rework.

Key responsibilities will include:

Designing web services that scale;
Identifying and implementing scalability/performance improvements;

Architecting and enhancing our client's AWS cloud infrastructure;
Mentoring junior engineers and interns;
Working with large quantities of data and optimizing read/write performance;

This is a Scrum based environment. The work is predominantly back-end focused Java development with occasional front-end coding. If this sounds like an interesting opportunity, please contact Elite Technical immediately.

Interested candidates must be either a U.S. citizen or Green Card holder as the client is unable to accommodate candidates requiring sponsorship.
