Geosite - Senior Software Engineer application - GIS experience highly preferred

At Geosite, our engineers work on some of the most innovative applications of geospatial data in the industry. Our senior engineers combine a mastery of front-end or back-end engineering (sometimes both) with a curiosity to solve problems and a seasoned toolkit for doing so. The senior engineering team is responsible for creative technical implementation; you must have the desire to push the product to its current boundaries and beyond and think outside the box to deliver technical solutions.

- Have a strong understanding of software architecture fundamentals.
- Are proficient writing unit & integration tests.
- Understand and have worked in the Agile software development lifecycle.

- Care about your professional development as well as contributing to the development of others.
- Are known for helping others become the best versions of themselves.

- Stay on top of geospatial technology trends and help the team assess how Geosite can best get ahead of them
- Contribute towards architecture decisions
- Communicate the technical feasibility, level of effort required, and best practices developed when the team scopes new features

Desired Skills:
- The more experience with geospatial data the better
- Demonstrated experience working with data visualization libraries
- Prior familiarity with building enterprise SaaS products
- A willingness to share knowledge with junior engineers by teaching them how to think about system life cycles, edge cases, and failure models specifically
