Description

Are you a Principal Python Software Engineer, who is interested in the stability of working for a $600B Private Equity Firm, but has the ability to leave your mark on the technical direction of a rapidly growing, intrapreneurial "start-up" that is based in the low country, and poised to have 400% growth over the next four years, then this could be the opportunity for you!

Our client has an immediate need for a Principal Software Engineer/Lead Software Engineer on a full-time basis in the Charleston area. This role offers a great balance between having the ability to stay "hand-on" technically, to set the technical direction for their engineering organization going forward, and leading more junior engineers on the team.

This Engineer would support the ongoing development of their highly transactional, core asset acquisition system that is written in object-oriented Python/AngularJS and help them with the development of their NextGen application. This will involve ongoing feature development on the existing back-end platform, selection of a new Python framework, the selection of a new Javascript front-end framework, and a total overhaul of their front-end UI in the near term. The Principal Engineer will serve not only as a lead technologist but also as a technology evangelist to their executive leadership team, consulting them in regard to the "best of breed" technology needed to help them scale and become the dominant player in the space. They will also have the chance to build out the engineering team as they grow and handpick the brightest engineers in the market.

Required Skills/Experience:

  • 8+ years of Full-Stack Software Engineering experience using Python and JavaScript
  • Experience working with modern JavaScript frameworks such as React, Vue.JS, or Angular.
  • A strong understanding of Flask to build REST APIs
  • Possess a command of RDBMS, ideally MySQL
  • Proficiency in building cloud-native applications in either Google Cloud (GCP) or AWS
  • Familiarity with GitHub, Travis-CI, or comparable tools
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to interact with business stakeholders on a regular basis
  • The desire to own the ongoing development of their core business system and a mentality of continued innovation.
  • A passionate to coach, mentor and lead others to become world-class engineers
  • Completion of a four-year degree in Computer Science or a related field of study.
