  • Deploy and monitor AWS infrastructure.
  • Jump in and help our product development teams engineer, improve or fix any ongoing projects.
  • Architect solutions to leverage the best of cloud infrastructure.

What You’ll Need:

  • 5+ years of experience as a software engineer in a fast-paced, web-centric environment.
  • Experience with Python, Java, and Linux or similar Unix environments.
  • Experience with AWS or other cloud platforms.
  • Experience with architecting high-volume web applications, services, and infrastructure in a startup type setting.

  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills.
  • Solid communication skills with both product management and engineering teams.

Where You’ll Work:

Our motto at Red Spark is, “love what you do and do what you love.” That’s the spirit you’ll feel in our office every day. Collaboration is essential to how we operate, and we’ve structured our office accordingly.  A wide open, modern workspace that’s fully equipped with anything you need from technology to table tennis, our center city Philadelphia office feels even better than home.
