About us:
We are a new company with a team that has worked together for over a decade. We are spinning out, from our former parent company, and now client, Apex Supply Chain Technologies.
We build solutions using blockchains, our own smart contract framework, API framework, and a robot/IoT hardware control framework that can make decisions autonomously or through consensus. Sometimes what we build interacts with hardware controls in the real world, and sometimes transactions just live in the cloud.
We’re looking for engineers who are ready to contribute fresh ideas from all variety of areas, including IoT integration, blockchain distributed ledgers and distributed computing, large-scale system design, networking and data storage, security, artificial intelligence, machine learning, UX design; the list goes on and is growing every day. As one of the software engineers, we will count on you to be versatile, display leadership, and be enthusiastic to take on new problems across the full stack as we continue to push technology forward.

  • Manage a team of software engineers, including task planning and code reviews.
  • Set the technical direction for products, projects, and teams.
  • Cultivate innovation by driving cross-collaboration and execution of projects across multiple teams.
  • Contribute high-level technical expertise and direct code development, while also providing technical leadership to the team.
  • Engage in and improve the whole lifecycle of services, from inception and design, through to deployment, operation, and refinement.
  • Lead the technical designs of new software components, systems, and features.
  • Leverage your technical knowledge of web technologies, software services, authentication protocols, programming languages, application integration techniques, and network security to set the technical direction.
  • Help define and execute/implement a long-term roadmap with other leads and cross-functional stakeholders.
  • Mentor and train other team members on design techniques, and coding standards.
