Senior Software Engineer

San Mateo
Do you want to work in a room full of people who love what they do while building a product that has real impact?

We're looking for passionate, product-focused software engineers who have hacked systems in creative ways, who are curious about new languages, technologies, and trends.

We believe that working hard is a byproduct of loving what you do and not something that can be measured on a timesheet.

At Armory, you'll work in small, collaborative, agile teams, interface directly with customers, and build awesome products that address real problems. There are no facts in the building; everyone owns their own mistakes; we ship code continuously; we are a tribe. 

Do you have experience with some or most of the below? We'd love to talk!

    • Polyglot: familiarity with two or more of: Java, Groovy, Go, Python, Ruby, etc.
    • SpringBoot
    • AWS or GCP
    • Kubernetes, Mesos/DCOS, or Docker Swarm
    • Docker or other container technology
    • Restful APIs
    • 4 + years experience
Our current tech stack is JVM based web-services (mostly Java8, some groovy), Go, Python, Kubernetes, Javascript, SpringMVC, AWS and, of course, a strong focus on dog fooding our own continuous delivery tools. You don't have to know our exact tech stack, but you should be familiar with similar tools and willing to learn.

Engineers at Armory work reasonable, flexible hours. We look for people who are thoughtful, can break down problems, work individually sometimes, and in pairs or teams at other times. You are trusted to work on your own but ask for help when you are blocked. Empathy for your coworkers and our customers is an important part of success here. As an early stage startup, most people wear many hats. We'll work with you to find the balance of what you want to do, what you are good at, and how that fits in with the company goals.

Armory is a two year old, YCombinator (W17 batch), Crosslink, Bain Capital, and Javelin-backed, Series A-funded startup. We are based in San Mateo, CA, just a few minutes from the Caltrain. Our long term vision is to unlock massive enterprise value for companies through software. We’re commercializing Spinnaker (Netflix OSS), a next-gen immutable infrastructure CD platform that enables blue/green deploys, canaries & rollbacks. Learn more at
