Bitsight is looking for a Software Engineer to help design, build, deploy, and maintain the middleware microservice architecture that’s responsible for delivering data to our Security Ratings application, used by over 2100 customers to manage their cyber risk. Leveraging your software engineering experience, you’ll be responsible for developing a deep understanding of our tech stack, the information architecture that drives the product, and the interplay between the two.

You’ll be responsible for working closely with our Product, DevSecOps, Data Science, and UI/UX teams to understand the evolving requirements of our middleware architecture and how to build performant, scalable solutions for requirements defined in collaborating with the Product organization.

Key responsibilities will include:
  • Contribute to scale our SaaS product during a time of rapid user growth to ensure an excellent customer experience;
  • Maintaining, building, and optimizing our REST APIs with a particular focus on making existing APIs scale to handle larger and larger amounts of data;
  • Decoupling existing chunks of our primary backend service with an eye toward spinning them off into their own microservice if prudent;
  • Where appropriate, design and implement non-REST APIs to improve performance for specific customer or front-end needs--e.g. websockets for real-time notifications, etc.;
  • Championing best practices for our microservice architecture and design;
  • Working closely with the DevOps team to improve and optimize our CI/CD processes and production architecture to improve both developer and customer experience.

  • 2 or more years of experience designing, building, and maintaining a customer-facing SaaS application;
  • Knowledge of microservice and software architecture designs patterns;
  • Experience with object-oriented languages (Python, Ruby, C#, Java, etc.);

Preferred Skills:
  • Experience with one/some/all of the following technologies: Python, Django, Kubernetes, AWS/GCP/Azure, Jenkins, Express, Nodejs, Spring Boot, Flask;
  • Experience with breaking up a software monolith into microservices;
  • Experience with managing the rollout of new APIs, data manipulation, and processing technologies (gRPC, GraphQL, Kafka, etc.) to software development organizations.
