Etna Interactive, a full-service digital marketing agency, is seeking a Software Engineer to build awesomeness. No, seriously, we want talented software developers to help us create the best tools, integrations, systems, and applications that help our clients grow their businesses. We see skilled engineers as the master builders needed to turn our creative dreams into realities.

As the leading digital marketing agency in our market, we have lots of tools that we use to build our clients’ businesses. Here is where the engineering role starts to make things great.

We expect you to understand how to:

  • Integrate digital marketing systems and data using modern and not so modern API’s
  • Design and build company internal systems to enable our teams to succeed
  • Support or refactor legacy systems to meet new standards
  • Write and execute smart testing structures to ensure quality implementations
  • Create great data architecture and be nimble with SQL

This position reports directly to technology leadership and has wide liberty in architectural and implementation decisions for completing system needs. Architectural autonomy provides wide latitude for the right engineer to create great things with minimal disruption; this doesn’t mean that you are off on your own. Solutions are often bound by the legacy systems that they work with or inside of. A great software engineer will leverage their expertise in systems integrations with their knowledge of software architecture to build sustainable and scalable solutions.

The role is expressly responsible for:

  • Turning complex needs into elegant and appropriately scalable designs and then implementing these designs with the help of leadership and other team members.
  • Maintaining systems that currently make up our proprietary technology footprint.
  • Taking responsibility for technology risk analysis and mitigation.
  • Supporting clients with highly complex engineering needs.

Etna has a broad technology and product management team that the engineer will work with to seek clarity and implement their projects. We pride ourselves on being a great place to work with incredibly smart people.

Ultimately, we need engineers to be great listeners and communicators. If you think you have the strong ability to listen to challenges from other teams and apply smart technology solutions, then you can succeed at Etna Interactive.

While a well-developed skill set and innate intelligence will get you in the door, a great personality that complements our team is a must. We’re a staff of over-achievers and life-long learners; still, we manage to squeeze fun into the mix every chance we get.

Must Haves:

Our firm has made a big name for itself in the medical marketing space; our clients expect and deserve the attention of a professional with:

  • Mastery of software development – including SQL, API consumption and design, data architecture, technical requirements building, and quality testing.
  • Superior ability to communicate and collaborate with both peers and supervisors.
  • Strength to ask great questions to clarify real world needs.
  • Real world experience in connecting systems through various API integrations.
  • Real world experience in diagnosing, fixing, and improving legacy systems.
  • Excellent troubleshooting skills in software, systems, and people.
  • Ability to express complex ideas in technical and laymen terms.

We truly enjoy each other here at Etna and you will fit in best if you have:

  • A sense of humor and optimistic personality
  • An eye for detail
  • A considerate and collaborative attitude
  • Self-motivation
  • A resourceful nature
  • Good judgement
  • Dedication to quality
