Senior Software Engineer

Changepoint (barometerIT)

Job Description

Changepoint’s barometerIT product is a cloud-based, crowd-sourced solution for the management, governance, planning, and audit of business architecture and enterprise architecture concerns. In a nutshell, it is a platform for creating and maintaining a graph-based “map” of any enterprise. In the coming years, we expect to double-down on graph-based analytics and intelligence.

As a Senior Software Engineer for our barometerIT product, you will work closely with product management to translate customer needs into killer features. You will identify and implement key technology components to enhance the platform, and exercise design and coding skills both inside and outside the bounds of an existing "best practices" application stack. You will collaborate with your engineering peers to deliver a robust cloud-based offering.
