Senior Back-End Software Engineer with Full Stack Experience

Become part of the team that is changing the world of manufacturing:

We are looking for a driven, high-energy, proven Senior Back-End Software Engineer with Full Stack experience for our digital manufacturing SaaS solution. ThinkIQ is the leader in Transformational Intelligence for Manufacturers, contextualizing data — both in-plant and across the supply chain — to improve yield, safety, quality, and compliance. Simply put, actionable end-to-end data insights lead to safer products and improved key metrics, and we are looking for team members who will help us drive success. If this sounds like you, we want to talk!

With ThinkIQ’s Transformational Intelligence platform, manufacturers finally have a complete overview of all operations. Changes in any variable are intelligently linked to both actual and predictive outcomes. This data may help one manufacturer avoid recalls from a temperature spike or assembly line slow down. It may help another manufacturer spot a weakness in their product that could become a major safety concern. And it may help another find that a small change in raw ingredients or suppliers can significantly increase their bottom line. At ThinkIQ, we do not just gather data. We do not just analyze data. We make sense of the data, and suggest actions that enhance safety, reliability, and efficiency.

As a Senior Back-End Software Engineer you will work with product management, software engineers, quality assurance and professional services to build exceptional software products that meet functional and performance requirements as specified by product owners.

Required experience includes:

  • Bachelor’s Degree or higher in appropriate field of study

  • Track record of developing elegant, high-quality, well documented, testable, and maintainable SaaS software using several of the technologies we use (see section later).
  • Full stack development using our overall LAPP/LAMP stack – understanding how the whole system works together.
  • Strong SQL experience is required (PostgreSQL preferred).
  • Working in an agile software development team.

Desired experience:

  • In addition to a Software Engineering background, QA, Services, System Administration, and Support backgrounds are all a plus.
  • Familiarity with manufacturing software domain.
  • Time series data and sensor / IoT data.
  • Signal processing.

Responsibilities:

  • Working as part of a team; architect, design and build software that meet the requirements for functionality, performance, simplicity, scalability, and supportability.
  • Document the architecture, design, and implementation.
  • Build unit tests.
  • Work with QA to ensure that they understand what to test and how to test it so that we end up with a product that works.
  • Troubleshoot and support the developed software and running production systems.
  • Make our product a delight to use and rock-solid.

Technologies we use:

  • Overall Stack: LAPP and LAMP (Linux, Apache/NGINX, Postgres, PHP, and MySQL).
  • UI Technologies: HTML, JavaScript, CSS, jQuery, Vue Js.
  • Middle Tier: PHP, CMS (we are using Joomla) based on MVC pattern. GraphQL.
  • Database: Primarily PostgreSQL, secondarily MySQL.
  • Data collection and ingestion: C#, .NET using OPC UA.
  • Operating Systems: Linux and Windows.
  • DevOps Scripting: Bash and Python.

  • IDEs: JetBrains and Visual Studio.
  • Version Control: GitHub.
  • IT Automation: Ansible.
  • UI Test Automation: Selenium.
  • Unit Testing Automation: PHPUnit, Vue Js, plpgUnit.

Attitude and Cultural Fit

  • Customer focused: Our software has no value until it is creating value for our customers.
  • Lean: Must function well without a large supporting bureaucracy: We are a startup company; we all wear many hats and do many jobs. We are a flat organization with limited resources where the decider and the doer often can be the same person.
  • Learn: Open to learning new technologies with enthusiasm.
  • Inclusive team builder and team player: The ThinkIQ team is ONE team. All our efforts are focused on making this a winning team and strengthening the team. We are all responsible for building and supporting the team. There is no room for sub-teams, hidden agendas, or internal fiefdoms.
  • Agile: Our decision processes are quick, we experiment to find solutions, we learn from our experiments and implement robust solutions. We are looking for a person with creativity combined with discipline and accuracy.
  • Transparent and honest: We are a sharing organization where it is easy to gain insight into what other parts of the organization is doing. Our systems provide controlled access to information so that any person with a need-to-know information has access to that information. We expect honesty so that we can make good decisions.
  • Hungry: The right person wants to make a difference in the world and believes that it is possible to create better and simpler solutions than exists today. While all team members will be financially rewarded when we are successful, the right person is driven more by the value created to the customer than the financial reward to the individual.
  • Willing to go the extra mile: We are all working hard because we believe in what we are doing. We are looking to expand the team with people that want to do the same. We are not discouraged when faced with an extra challenge or an unexpected obstacle.
