Full Time
Software Engineers at Pathpoint write, test, document & evolve the code and software systems that deliver value to Pathpoint and our customers. Our stack is TypeScript, React, Node, and Golang, continuously deployed on AWS and continuously tested in CircleCI.

Senior Software Engineers are the technical leaders of their teams, responsible for building the highly leveraged software systems that are multipliers of the team’s efficiency and working closely with other team leaders to advise on planning and set technical direction.

Our teams are small to enable focus, and often employ Agile Development practices to solve problems in a complex real world domain where the requirements may not yet be fully defined, so the solutions need to be resilient to change while being stable and performant.
