Developer / Architect - Data Services

Engineering | Portland, OR | Full Time

Job Description

About the Opportunity

We’re looking for a talented, senior developer with a strong background in data pipelines, analytics and visualization to join our Agile engineering team. We’re Eleven Software; makers of ElevenOS, the cloud-based central authentication platform used by major hospitality brands around the world to effortlessly and securely connect guests and residents (and all their devices) to the internet with an at-home wifi experience.

If you join us, you’ll be leading a small team of engineers focused on designing and building the cloud services needed to support existing and emerging reporting, analytics and data extraction requirements. You’ll be working mostly with Linux, Python, Elasticsearch, DynamoDB, JavaScript and various relational databases. But, we’re eager for you to bring us your experience, vision, and knowledge of technologies we’re not yet familiar with.  

Your job as part of the broader engineering team is to help Eleven continue to innovate and sharpen our edge as the leader in cloud-based centralized authentication services for guest networks as we scale and modernize to meet rapidly growing demand.  We authenticated over 150 million guest sessions last year, and, even though we’re fifteen years old, that was just the beginning. You’re comfortable working in a hybrid architecture environment where legacy services, still running in the languages in which they were built, are talking to a growing ecosystem of services built in modern languages on modern stacks and with flexible deployment models (cloud, datacenter, appliance).  

There’s never a dull day here. If you like a mind-bending challenge… or if working within a team of driven engineers with diversified skillsets sounds attractive… and working alongside a whole team of terrific people with a shared passion for our core values of teamwork, excellence, innovation, and customer-centricity excites you, then Eleven might be the place for you. If you agree, let’s talk.
