Senior Cloud Software Engineer

As a Senior Cloud Software Engineer at Hellebore, you will help design and implement advanced microservice-based architectures for mission-critical systems for our Air Force customers. As part of a digital strike team, you will help design and execute rapid software development projects to meet critical mission needs.

At Hellebore, we’re working on automating everything, tackling the hard problems, and embedding security and quality into every step of the way.

With a strong path for professional growth, you will use modern tools (i.e. Kubernetes, Helm, Docker, Istio) and practices to work with a small, dedicated team on building a new software architecture. In this role, you will utilize DevSecOps to help build advanced microservice-based architectures for mission-critical systems. This new project has plenty of room for you to be creative and innovative. (There's no maintaining someone else's legacy code here!) Our on-site team utilizes modern development practices to engage with our client on highly specialized (and interesting) problems. We value beautiful, well-tested, high-quality code. We leverage automation wherever possible.

It takes all types to make Hellebore great. If you are someone who enjoys creating innovative ways to reach ambitious goals, who is open to and energized by receiving honest feedback, and is comfortable in a start-up environment: we should talk.
