What You'll Do
We cover the full stack so you can start the day fixing a Javascript bug, hack on the API over lunch, and investigate database performance issues before heading home. Or, if you like, take a few days to focus on delivering a small feature that our tens of thousands of customers have been asking for and measuring exactly how often it's being used. 
Who You'll Work With
You will join a fast-moving, multi-talented Engineering team where new features are delivered to customers multiple times a day. We call ourselves the A-Team and our mission is to improve the OpenDNS customer experience in hundreds of small ways that add up to the best security solution on the planet. This team does it all, so you'll never be bored, and you'll constantly be learning new technologies.
Who You Are
You're a Software Engineer that enjoys wearing many hats, a self-starter that's willing to jump headfirst into the codebase and start improving it immediately. This is a true generalist role, so if you've tried a few different web stacks and have your favorites, that's a good sign. Or, if you've got solid middle-tier experience and you're a fast learner, this would be a great opportunity to branch out.
Our minimum requirements for this role: 
* Experience designing, implementing, and supporting a large-scale customer-facing web property or service
* Demonstrable PHP, Python, Java, C++ or JavaScript skills
* In-depth knowledge of object-oriented concepts, programming, and systems design
* Understanding of various design patterns and Service-Oriented Architecture
* Excellent oral and written communication skills
* Excellent analytical and troubleshooting skills
Desired Skills
* Experience in an Agile environment
* Experience building (and supporting) microservices
* Amazon Web Services
* Relational databases (MySQL, Amazon RDS)
* Continuous Integration/Delivery tools (Jenkins, Docker, Chef, Ansible)
