About The Position
We are looking for a talented Software Engineer to join our SaaS team, responsible for developing APIs and web services that are part of Aqua’s growing cloud security platform. You should have experience developing in modern, SaaS-based environments using Go.
Our SaaS team is building a state-of-the-art cloud and container security platform used by thousands of developers, businesses, and enterprises to keep their workloads secure. Our platform consists of multiple microservices based on Go, Node.js, RDBMS and NoSQL on the backend and Vue.js on the frontend. We use container and serverless technologies such as AWS API Gateway and Lambda and deploy our code to production hundreds of times per week using modern CI/CD processes.

- Enhance the platform via development of new features, APIs, or code improvements
- Work with a team of backend, frontend, and infrastructure engineers to build highly scalable, secure microservices
- Build tooling required to manage users, accounts, and other data stored by our platform
- Interact with cloud provider APIs and services to create distributed and scalable applications
- Lead architecture and planning sessions, perform code reviews, and write documentation
- 5+ years of industry experience in a software engineering role, preferably building a SaaS product.
- Strong experience writing, testing, and delivering software
- Experience with MongoDB, DynamoDB, or other similar databases
- Ability to write scalable, well-documented, tested REST APIs
- Experience interacting with cloud provider APIs – uploading files to AWS S3, querying lists of EC2 instances, etc.
- Familiarity with microservices, containers, Lambda and modern CI/CD deployment processes
- Familiarity with cloud deployment tooling, such as AWS CloudFormation or Terraform
- A secure software development foundation – a solid understanding of the OWASP Top 10 and other security guidelines
- A startup and self-starter mindset – the ability to juggle multiple projects, mentor other engineers, and advocate for tools and processes to improve our developer experience
- Experience working in remote and distributed teams
