What We’re Looking For: - 4+ years developing software professionally on a team - Knowledge of UI frameworks like React, Angular, or others - Experience securing APIs - Experience delivering software using cloud platforms such as AWS, GCP, or Azure - Exposure to relational and non-relational databases - Experience establishing continuous deployment practices, including automated testing and continuous integration
What We Value: DREAMING BIG We constantly challenge ourselves to push boundaries, defy conventional wisdom, and take smart risks by pursuing big opportunities hiding in plain sight.
MOVING FAST We push ourselves and portfolio companies to build processes and systems that compress time, speed, and decision-making to produce results faster.
EXPECTING MORE We demand the best from ourselves, our team, and our partners. We create the context for success by providing the appropriate resources, infrastructure, training, and mentorship required to win.
High Alpha is an equal opportunity employer, and we value diversity at our company. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
