- An innovative, experienced, and talented software engineer to help force disruption in an outdated software environment and accelerate its pace of change.
This Jedi will be helping lead the charge at American Express to modernize an aging enterprise architecture using the latest and greatest in technologies and tools.
Our team is focused on innovating from the ground up.
We are introducing domain specific micro-service-based architectures using docker and other container technologies.
While what language you speak is less important than your innovative mind-set and flexible brain, Java is the current dialect, and "Full-stack" is a philosophical imperative.
This role will be an expert or "go to guy" for the architecture, design, and engineering of solutions and components that span a newly expanded American Express software landscape.
The successful candidate will partner in the creation of a new culture at Amex.
They will also be responsible for providing core system design, evaluating and proving platform components, and delivering working prototypes and frameworks for delivery teams to build upon. These components are required to have a high-performance service interface (RESTAPI) capable of scaling to extremely high transaction rates. This will require developing highly scalable components in a distributed environment. Our goal is to use open source frameworks where applicable to build an industry leading, API-enabled system.
