A bit about the role & team | the opportunity: 

The Hybrid Cloud is a team of many agile squads, all working together to deliver a competitive hybrid cloud/desktop auditing solution.   Different squads are responsible for specific components of the solution, including Desktop Working Papers, Smart Sync scalability, the Hybrid Data Pipeline (HDP), and data warehousing (Sherlock).  Each self-organizing squad has their own unique culture and workflow.  The tech stacks also differ between squads, using languages/platforms such as C++, C#, Python, JavaScript, Node.js, Angular, and Java, and technologies such as AWS (Lambda, Athena, MongoDB, DynamoDb, S3, Redshift & Redshift Spectrum, SQS, SNS), Jenkins, and Silk Test. 
As a whole, our squads work closely with each other to coordinate features and updates. We also host hackathons and other team-wide events where we take the day off and bond over activities like axe throwing, bowling,  and escape rooms. Join us and be part of our family!
