Back End Software Engineer (IS)

Updated on 11/05/2021

Job Description

Inductive Automation, the leader in creating cutting-edge software for the industrial automation world is looking to add talented people to our rapidly growing team! We are a unique, innovative, and fun company with a strong mission: to empower our customers to swiftly turn great ideas into reality by removing all technological and economic obstacles. We have a huge passion for our product and our customers; no matter what role you might play in the company, you can sense that there is something special about what we do and who we are.

We’re looking for Backend Software Engineers to join our team as we create solutions that meet the business and data needs of our customers and internal stakeholders. The solutions we build take many forms, from hand-crafted applications for our internal business users to websites that allow our customers to learn about products and manage their accounts, as well as the infrastructure that we provide to make sure that data is safely and reliably delivered.

You’ll be joining us at an exciting time. Our team is in the midst of transforming how our systems are structured, moving from a monolithic approach to a microservices architecture. This new approach changes what’s possible when it comes to the tools we build and the business intelligence we can deliver to our customers and stakeholders. We’ve made some great progress so far, but we still have a long way yet to go. We’re looking for talented people to join us on our journey.

Our new microservices are written primarily in Python 3 / Django 3, and are hosted in AWS Cloud. Our legacy systems are written in Python 2 on the Ignition platform, and are hosted on-prem. Both systems rely on MySQL as the database backend. We’re looking for people with some demonstrated expertise in most or all of these technologies, and strong desire to learn others.

More importantly, the ideal candidate would be someone who is comfortable getting their hands dirty as they help unravel the complexity of our legacy systems and join us as we build systems that are more modern, flexible, and reusable.

Requirements

  • Python (or any other programming language, and willingness and ability to learn Python quickly)
  • MySQL (or any other relational database, and willingness and ability to work with MySQL)
  • Debugging and troubleshooting
  • Testing (manual and automated testing; interest in TDD is a plus)
  • Documentation
  • Familiarity with Linux
  • Other Desired Skills and Experience

    • Ignition
    • AWS
    • Django

Inductive Automation, LLC is an equal opportunity employer, and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, and status as a protected veteran or individual with a disability.
