Job Summary

We are in the process of filling open positions for the combined company following CenturyLink’s acquisition of Level 3 Communications. All qualified candidates who express interest by submitting an application to an open posting will be considered. However, based on business needs, preference may be given to internal applicants on certain positions. We still welcome, and encourage, all application submissions while we continue our integration process.  Internal applicants are current, active CenturyLink employees, including Level 3 employees who have transitioned to CenturyLink as part of the acquisition.

We have an opening for an experienced Senior Lead Software Engineer to expand our team of engineers who are developing CenturyLink’s Cloud offering. This person would contribute to building one of the products that run as part of our cloud architecture, touching all aspects of the development lifecycle from coding to deployment all the way to support.

Job Description

Who we hire:

Just like everyone else, we want to hire unbelievably bright developers, who are a joy to work with, love to work with others, solve problems, listen well, and lead as appropriate. Oh, yeah, they have to love to learn new things, too. On top of that, our ideal candidate also should have a passion for cloud computing and for creating applications and services that make developers’ lives easier while helping them create their enterprise-ready applications.

Limiting yourself to just one area of the technology stack would be unthinkable for this kind of developer, so we hope that you are comfortable doing everything from creating beautiful, friendly UIs, to crafting logical and easy to use APIs, all the way to writing distributed computing algorithms between applications running on entirely different clouds.

Since our teams operate in an extremely Agile culture, using a combination of XP and Kanban practices and processes, you’d be encouraged to collaborate closely, deliver small pieces of working software frequently, work in pairs, write your code test first, and think about things like cycle time and WIP limits. All of this adds up to an exciting, challenging, and always interesting place to work, where hard problems are found and solved every day.

Who you are: 

You’re the type that gets things done and solves problems. You love coding and are passionate about learning new things and expanding your skills. You want to contribute, and hopefully, one day, create something that matters to you. You want freedom to code, without being interrupted by a crazy amount of meetings and interoffice bureaucracy. You’re a direct but open-minded communicator that’s also transparent and kind. If you’re laid back and appreciate an open door policy that means you can ask anyone anything – this is the job for you.

Your experience:

You’ll need to be well-versed in developing for the web, using such technologies as JavaScript, JavaScript frameworks (ex: Knockout, React, Angular, Ember, etc.), OOP languages (ex: Java, Scala, Python, Ruby, Node.js, etc.) Modern SQL and NoSQL databases (MySQL, MongoDB, couchbase, etc.) and Agile Methodology. This is a full stack position, so you must love coding both the back and front ends; bonus points awarded if you have cloud experience (AWS, Azure, etc), TDD experience, and configuration management automation (preferably through Ansible).  We also love people who contribute to open source projects (send us your github!)
