Senior Software Engineer - Cloud Services - 100% Remote

United States - Remote
Product Engineering – Lifecycle
We are 350+ employees from diverse backgrounds, that hail from more than 50 countries, and speak 15 languages. But, we all share one thing in common: we’re passionate about accelerating software innovation. Our vision is to put Nexus products at the center of every open source decision made by modern engineering organizations.  We’re one of the fastest growing tech companies in America and have been named both a Deloitte Fast 500 and Inc. 5000 company three years in a row. We pride ourselves on being an open and supportive company, which is why we were named to Fast Company’s list of 50 Best Workplaces for Innovators in 2019. Learn more at

Our product development teams lead the ongoing evolution of multiple market-leading products and services -- Nexus Repository and Nexus Lifecycle -- used by hundreds of thousands of developers, application security professionals, and legal staff across the world.

As a platform engineer, you will be a critical part of designing and delivering the next generation of cloud-based software and services complimenting Sonatype’s market-leading supply chain and open source software governance portfolio.  You will develop the services and infrastructure needed to deliver mission-critical customer-facing solutions at a massive scale. You will work closely with your teammates and product development to turn new and innovative ideas into reality.

No one is going to tell you when to get up in the morning, or dole out a bunch of small tasks for you to do every single day. Members of Sonatype's software development organization have to have the internal drive and initiative to make the product vision a reality. Flow should be the predominant state of mind.
We are looking for smart people, who get things done and that well in a team environment. We have a deeply strong team technically, though many places probably claim this. If you love working on and solving some of the most difficult software engineering challenges, you will love working here.
