We are a tight-knit team of innovators on a mission to radically improve government technology.
A software engineer at Quicket will develop next-generation technologies exclusively for mission-critical and sensitive government workloads. At Quicket we have engineers focusing on backend development, mobile and desktop development, front-end development, and infrastructure engineering. Candidate must have experience in one or more of the following: RESTful API development, RDBMS, unit and integration testing, and cloud-based infrastructures.
Quicket is a tight-knit, rapidly growing team, so the ability to move quickly and liaison with other teams is paramount. Switching teams is encouraged as we grow and form more specialized groups. We need our engineers to be versatile and always eager to tackle new problems as we continue to push technology forward.
Software Engineer - Intern
A software engineering intern at Quicket should be ready to learn. We understand you probably haven’t coded professionally before, and we’re here to help you grow. Intern candidates should have a demonstrated interest in web application development. Preference for knowledge of SOLID development, REST API principles, and the HTTP protocol. We move quickly, with ample cross-team communication, so you have opportunity to see how different teams and technologies work, to expose you to different possible career paths. We don’t do intern projects. From day 1, you will work with a team on code going into production. We do this so that you know what it’s like when you come back full-time.
Mobile Applications Engineer - Android
We are seeking exceptionally talented programmers with a passion for developing mobile applications that make a big impact on government efficiency and effectiveness. Must be fluent in Java and have experience in Android application programming. Candidates are familiar with network related APIs, accessing remote databases from Android devices, and JSON/XML formatting.
-Design and build advanced applications for Android
-Closely collaborate with cross-functional teams
-Work with outside data sources and API’s
-Unit-test code for robustness, including edge cases, usability, and general reliability
-Work on bug fixing and application performance
-Use immense creativity to plan, evaluate, and implement new technologies
A front-end engineer at Quicket will be able to write a front-end with a focus on security and usability. Our clients use our software in unusual locations and circumstances, so fundamentals of UX are important. Ideal candidates will be familiar with jQuery/Bootstrap, but also know when new frameworks or libraries can help us accelerate our development, while maintaining a stable product. Candidate must have experience with some of the following: jQuery/Bootstrap, consuming REST APIs, common authentication and authorization approaches, performance testing, and unit/fuctional/integration testing. We need developers with an interest in solving hard problems that will help us to scale.
A DevOps Engineer will be supporting multiple product teams with automating deployment, QA, CI/CD tooling, and infrastructure for an AWS based SaaS company providing solutions exclusively for sensitive government workloads. Primarily this involves working with developers to encourage ownership for the full life cycle of their applications from story to deployment and beyond. You will be evaluating tool sets and using them to craft solutions that enable engineering teams to deliver value to the client quickly and reliably.
This is a development centric position, extending existing tools and writing new ones. Python is strongly preferred but other languages are welcome as the task warrants.
Linux is our target platform, Bash and general Linux system administration skills are required.
We are 100% AWS. Experience with EC2, S3, Lambda, VPCs, and IAM is required.
Windows Server 2016 exists in a few unavoidable cases and Windows 10 on the desktop per user preference so PowerShell/.NET is helpful.
We’re currently seeking to improve and expand our use of among other tools: Terraform, Ansible, Docker, Packer, CloudWatch, DataDog, Slack, Jira, Jenkins and LambCI.
Back-End Engineer (Python)
A Back-End Software Engineer will be responsible for RESTful API development, RDBMS, unit and integration testing, and cloud-based infrastructures. In addition, he or she will oversee the design, development, and deployment of server APIs. This position includes managing the build-out of all necessary systems to enable our product. Reports to Director of Engineering.
