HireVue Senior Platform Software Engineer in South Jordan, Utah

Senior Platform Software Engineer

Location(s): Salt Lake City, UT or Remote, USA

Do you stand out from the crowd? We're looking for engineers that want to build something great with a group of incredible people. We work hard to create our industry-leading products. And we strive to make our users, customers, and, most importantly, their candidates (you!) have the best experience possible.


In addition to the standards (salary, bonus, equity), HireVue offers:

  • Flexible PTO + medical + dental + vision

  • Comfortable office + weekly team presentations + hackweeks and team events

What you will be doing:

You will be joining our assessments engineering team as a platform engineer. This team owns developing and maintaining our job candidate assessment system. This system uses our advanced AI to analyze games, video, and text from thousands of job candidates per day. As a platform engineer, you will be creating and maintaining backend services, processing pipelines and datastores that are robust, scalable, and maintainable. You will work directly with a Product Manager, Designer, QA Engineers, IO Psychologists and other Software Engineers.

We believe that code isn't worthwhile until customers are using it. Your team will ship high quality code to production frequently. Here are some of the things you'll do to make that happen:

  • Prototyping, writing tests, reviewing each other's code, and working closely with the QA engineers

  • Making architectural decisions with domain experts so your team's work is scalable and easy to operate

  • Monitoring how your code behaves as customers use it


User interface: Javascript, Angular, React, GraphQL, Yarn

Platform: Java, Python, Django, RabbitMQ, SQS, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, DynamoDB, S3, Splunk

Infrastructure: AWS, Docker, Elastic Cloud, Auto scaling, EC2


We want to build great, industry impacting features and have fun doing it. Our team members think the most important parts of our culture are:

  • Teams work together to decide what will give our customers the most value and how to accomplish it.

  • Thursdays are work from home Thursdays. Slippers encouraged.

  • Use that flexible time off policy for that big Utah powder day (but don’t let your team down!)

  • Our most important “attrivute” is “Act like an Owner”. Others are “keep it simple”, “disagree and commit”, and “think big”.

  • We get excited about our hackweeks and try to have large team or company events at least twice a year.

Hiring process:

  • Fill out our very basic application form or reach out to us (apply, email, shout, call)

  • We send you a link to use our awesome software and tell us more about yourself (includes a coding challenge and assessments)

  • An onsite visit to check out the office, meet the team, and learn more about us while we learn more about you.


  • Gather requirements by working with Product Managers, reviewing customer needs, asking questions and refining the requirements.

  • Brainstorm, design and implement solutions. Effectively document your work for consumption by your team.

  • Prototype and test designs, taking the user process, and basic feature functionality into account, as well as the feature's ability to perform in acceptable time measurements and to scale to many multiple users, whether that is within one customer account or throughout many customer accounts.

  • Deliver production ready solutions for deployment, including an accompanying thorough test suite of unit tests and/or automated test tools.

  • Deliver solutions within the timeframes needed to meet customer requirements, exercising judgment to determine what can be delivered when.

  • Take feedback and learn from peers.

  • Provide effective feedback, coaching, mentoring, and leadership to other team members.

  • Possess a good knowledge of the languages and libraries in use, learning those that are new to you. Demonstrate good judgement in implementation and design.

  • Understand and use current development and architectural patterns effectively.


Ideal Experience:

  • B.S. Computer Science (or related field) or equivalent experience

  • 8+ years in a software engineering role

  • 5+ years Java experience

  • 5+ years AWS experience

  • 3+ years Python experience
