KVH is creating a business architecture that will enable our company to scale and automate our satellite telecom and manufacturing operations around the globe. We're seeking software developers with both the ability to help design that architecture, and to build/test/integrate the services and APIs as we build it out. You'll be helping to drive our migration from traditional server-based systems to data-centric architectures. You'll be designing and building a Business Support System (BSS) middleware layers to automate event-driven and scheduled interactions triggered by customers, devices and systems across our networks. You'll need a powerful set of tools, including the ability to work directly with business stakeholders and fellow engineers to translate business needs to technical requirements; a dedication of quality, security, and maintainability throughout the design/development/implementation process; superb software-engineering skills, sometimes on an Agile team, sometimes working independently, but always well-organized; an appreciation of - and ability to create - well-architected, self-documenting APIs and systems; a willingness to roll-up sleeves for hands-on DevOps work when required.

Most importantly, developing software at KVH offers the best of both worlds: the opportunity to work on one of the leading global satellite telecom networks at truly global scale, and a small team environment where your creativity, ideas and feedback are encouraged and valued, and where you can make a real impact.
