At 11:00am we scheduled a meeting to review a product requirements document that describes a major new feature we need to implement. You agree to lead the implementation of the new feature, so after the meeting you come up with a design for this new feature, and ask the team if they can review your design tomorrow. In the meantime, you sketch out a new data model, and draw out a flowchart or interaction diagram to clarify things for the review. After reviewing your design, we'll break down the work into stories or chores in the backlog or icebox.
Tomorrow, you'll be using a network analyzer like Fiddler or Charles to examine packets going in and out of our own custom-written proxy server, to figure out why a third party service is returning an error code to the server side of the proxy server, which ultimately ripples back to the client as an error. That'll have you deep into HTTP headers, cookies, content encoding, whether query arguments are encoded properly, and more as you try to figure that one out. That'll be fun.
I've got 45 years of professional software development experience building some of the most successful and well known software in the world at companies like AT&T, Oracle, and Netflix, as well as numerous startups. This taught me that the best teams emerge when you bring together very talented software developers with the right combination of culture and process, and then something magical happens.
Please DO NOT submit a resume. Your application will be turned down if you submit a resume. Instead, please apply by emailing a cover letter, explaining how your background is relevant to this job description, and why we should consider hiring you. You can read more about our business at www.adtoniq.io, and feel free to comment on our business as well. If we think you're a good match, we'll schedule a 90 minute Google Zoom during which we can talk about the position, but the bulk of the time we'll pair to write some code together to see how well we can work together. During the Zoom, you'll be doing the driving and writing the code, but we'll be working together. If it's a go from both sides after that, we'll have additional interviews where we can explore the details of this position, culture fit, and our company.
