We are looking for a Software Engineer that is passionate about developer communities, REST, and of course, building and consuming APIs. The role will be a combination of development on our developer portal solution and our core tech behind generating APIs. You’ll be helping build the API that generates APIs. In fact, that API generated our own private API (so meta!). You'll have a huge impact on the company and customers as a very early member of the organization, and be introduced to a large range of cutting edge API providers.

- Lead development on a robust developer portal solution for APIs we provide
- Contribute to the core solution that generates APIs
- Gain a deep understanding of the Emergent One platform

- Strong knowledge of object-oriented design and design patterns
