About You

You love building great software. Your work could be supporting new feature development, migrating existing features, or creating APIs. You'll have a primary focus on backend development in Elixir, though may need to jump into the frontend from time to time.We use modern tools, which means you’ll have the opportunity to work with software like Memcached, RabbitMQ, Zookeeper, Docker, Redis, Jenkins, Puppet, Ansible and much more. 

You have worked with teams before on large and demonstrable projects,preferably built on Elixir (experience with Phoenix and Ecto is a huge plus) You’re also familiar with frameworks like Rails or Node. You understand how to design systems in a distributed manner across hundreds (and even thousands) of servers (experience of OTP, while not required, is very good to have) - we handle 100s of millions of API calls every week and are growing fast. You understand Agile software development and DevOps practices, and can work closely with QA teams to optimize your code.  

You relish creating high quality code from the comfort of your own home. Your engineering projects will focus on understanding customers' needs and translating those needs from product specifications into functional, production ready code. You'll have the opportunity to ship code daily that will be used by customers.

You love learning. Engineering is an ever-evolving world. You enjoy playing with new tech and exploring areas that you might not have experience with yet.  You are self-driven, self-learner willing to share knowledge and participate actively in your community.

Having overlap with your team is critical when working in a global remote team. Modus requires all team members to overlap with EST morning hours daily. In addition, reliable high speed internet is a must.

This includes but is not limited to installing BitDefender endpoint security, provided by Modus Create on the machine you will be connecting to the clients network and systems with. BitDefender provides the following features: AntiVirus/AntiMalware, Intrusion detection systems, Blocking of Phishing/compromised websites, Full Disk Encryption (using native tools to the operating system), Disables external storage, Automatic patch deployment and Windows risk management.
