Senior Software Engineer Opportunity


Our Values
Here at RIDGID we believe in an agile development methodology and constant team collaboration. Our teams are passionate about working together to solve challenging problems for our customers and our business. Our software is used by millions of customers worldwide; therefore, we value quality and agility so we can effectively bring new features to market. We encourage growth via challenging projects, team exercises, training, developer conferences, and other technical community involvement.


What We’re Looking For
We are looking for creative team members who love to develop software.  We want to work with people that make learning and teaching others a fundamental part of every day. We expect our senior engineers to be curious about how they can apply technology to make a meaningful impact to our customers.
In particular, we’re looking to hire a Senior Software Engineer who has experience with large-scale web applications, web services, and data architecture. If you are an experienced geek who loves working in an agile environment and who enjoys web development, databases, and working with other engineers of various disciplines then you’ll be a great fit!
What is a Senior Software Engineer and Why Are We Hiring One?
Senior engineers at RIDGID take on the challenge of leading full-stack development across a healthy mix of customer driven technology solutions. Each senior engineer on our team has a stand-out passion or two that they get to exercise on a regular basis. For some it is large-scale back-end web solutions and others it might be mobile development or machine learning. Senior engineers here are seldom given a directive on how to solve a problem. They are hired to be leaders and work with other leaders to design and deliver the best solutions for our customers’ needs.

As our tools continue to get “smarter” and more connected, the need for mobile applications and web services to support this kind of connectivity is increasing rapidly. The ecosystems of software that supports our website, CRM system, mobile applications, and our connected tools are all becoming more important than ever. We need senior engineers to join the team to help explore and keep up with the demand for new technology in this space.
We are looking to hire a Senior Software Engineer who can focus and help take the lead on building out our RIDGID Cloud infrastructure and services in conjunction with other software engineers and hardware/firmware engineers.
