Full Time
Here at Appian, we're passionate about technology. We love making it, and we love using it. Joining Appian Engineering will provide you with the opportunity to learn in an environment that values cross-functional collaboration and is committed to personal and professional growth. We want to revolutionize the way people work, and in doing so, we develop the Appian platform to be simple so our customers can thrive.

Appian is growing and so is our Data Integrations squad! Our team is improving and expanding our core integration capabilities to offer our customers increasing possibilities in a low-code environment. We are looking for brilliant engineering leaders like yourself to build out and expand our integration services. This is a servant/leader role so you should be comfortable (and excited) to be coding up to 50% of the time.

Building a platform forces us to think abstractly, and write code that will work and scale no matter the shape or source of the customer's data. That makes for more interesting and challenging design problems.

To be successful in this role, you need:
  • Experience designing and implementing code that connects highly available and mission critical interoperable systems.
  • Care personally about fostering a culture of learning, growth, and career development for software engineers.
  • Effective interpersonal and communication skills that allow you to genuinely connect with people.
  • Skilled at producing secure and robust code, especially leveraging industry best practices and standards such as OAuth and SAML
  • Ability to consistently produce efficient and elegant code in Java or other object-oriented languages in a timely manner.
  • Passion for tackling and solving complex problems involving high-performant interoperable systems.
  • Flexibility and openness to work with different tools, technologies, and people.
  • Initiative to identify and seize areas of opportunity.

Some of the tools and resources we will equip you with include:
  • An on-boarding program that will provide hands-on experience with our platform, and the processes and technologies we use in the Engineering department.
  • Our team works primarily with Java, Git, Locust, Docker, Kubernetes, and Helm; while also having the autonomy to use other technologies as needed to accomplish our goals more effectively.
  • Personal Indie Time (dedicated time to build whatever you want with whomever you want) and annual hackathons that provide opportunities for growth and leadership, which are activities that inspire others and get creative juices flowing.

Basic qualifications:
  • B.S. in Computer Science or related field, advanced degree preferred.
  • 10+ years in software development.
  • 2+ years as a mentor or manager.
