Are you a talented and creative Application Engineer or Developer who programs in Java, Python or JavaScript?  Do you have experience building Serverless Applications on AWS or Azure, OR do you have a history building web/server-side applications and want to break into Serverless Application development? Do you want to build solutions that are used by real people that solve real-world problems?

If so, we want to speak with you!

Berico Technologies is working with the Department of Commerce to better commercialize intellectual property (inventions) that are developed and owned by the Federal Government. These inventions are developed by National Laboratories, University partnerships and other research/development programs, making the Federal Government one of the largest creators of intellectual property in the world.  Well known US Companies license these inventions to bring new technologies to market in the form of new consumer products. Commercializing this intellectual property is also good for the economy because it maximizes the return on investments made by US Taxpayers.

Berico is building a modern web/mobile enabled, publicly accessible expanded commercial marketplace that will make it easier for companies to search and discover intellectual property from the Federal Government, and direct from Universities and US Business.  We seek an enthusiastic Application Engineer/Developer to help us achieve this vision using modern development techniques and frameworks to create the best user experience possible. As an Application Engineer/Developer, you will work with a team using technologies like: API Gateway, Lambda, Swagger, Git, Jenkins, and languages like Java, Python or JavaScript. You will work with a talented team comprised of a scrummaster, product owner, web and devops engineers, a UI/UX designer, a QA test engineer and the Chief Technology Officer to build, test and release the marketplace using an AWS Serverless Architecture. If you want to get your hands dirty with React and AWS, we would like to hear from you.
