Chronotrack Systems is looking for an experienced backend software developer to help advance our growing product line. The stack behind our live product line consists of distributed backend services written in Scala, Java, Ruby, and Python and front end services written in Zend PHP. These services process data, interact with social networks, and perform a variety of tasks that require scale using technologies like memcached, mysql, S3, DynamoDB, Reddis, RabbitMQ, Gridgain, and various other distributed technologies. We're looking for a developer experienced and comfortable in this kind of environment who wants to develop software in the exciting and growing global market of endurance sports.
We offer competitive salaries, great benefits, and a stimulating work environment. Great development setup with a Macbook Pro and anything else that will make you more productive. We encourage and subsidize conference participation and continuing education. We love open-source, both using and supporting. We believe in fostering a workplace where team members can be productive and happy.
We have two development locations, Detroit Michigan and Washington D.C. We prefer someone to be close to these locations, but telecommute is also a possibility for the right candidate.
