Our Fortune 100 client is looking to bring on a talented Full-Stack Engineer with JavaScript experience building backend NodeJS micro-services. (TypeScript a plus). You’re comfortable building web apps or microservices and deploying them with git & pipelines.

What’s the Role? 

As a full-stack engineer, you’ll be working on the Platform Engineering Team, building a modern application platform to host our company's growing suite of micro apps. You’ll code in NodeJS/TypeScript daily, alongside modern tech, such as AWS, NGINX, Lua, and a robust CI/CD pipeline. Your day-to-day will be back-end development, although we may touch react from time to time. 

Our clients are your fellow engineers, building microapps, dashboards and UI to service the financial representatives and other employees of Northwestern Mutual. Help us build the gateways, identity, and data microservices that hundreds of these apps depend upon.  

You’ll solve complex problems, collaborating with both architects and designers to deliver the platform.

  • 3+ years of engineering experience.
