CoreLogic -- Software Engineer

Posted June 28th, 2017

About CoreLogic | FNC:

Software technology company CoreLogic | FNC continues to revolutionize the mortgage technology industry building systems that give mortgage lenders and servicers access to the most current residential real estate information available.

We are a fast-paced, collaborative financial software company, where driving multiple projects and priorities is the norm. We seek a diverse workforce, where the expertise of many produces excellence for all. We love to think, invent, and develop software, while thoroughly enjoying the process. We wear jeans to work and believe the process should be fun. We believe our people are our most important asset, and we support that belief with extraordinary benefits, casual work spaces, and open-door management.

Position Description:

In this role, you will work directly with other engineers, analysts, testers, and product owners to build, enhance, and maintain enterprise-class web platforms and services.  You will work across the application stack, building sophisticated client-side interactions, strong middle-tier infrastructure, and efficient data access in a distributed environment.  We will look to you for input and direction on code design as well as assisting on subprojects to drive them through completion.  

We are primarily a Microsoft shop, but at the heart of it all, we are about using technology to solve real problems.  We use the best tools available each and every day to solve our client’s challenges and are not married to any one technology.  Whether that is caching with Redis, big data management with MongoDB, or iOS development, the problem drives our choice of tools, not the other way around.

We employ XP (extreme programming) methodologies in our Innovation Labs where Java, big data tools, and open source technologies are prevalent.  Our largest platforms are primarily, although certainly not exclusively, on the Microsoft stack, consisting largely of ASP.NET MVC, Web API, C#, SQL Server, jQuery, knockout, AngularJS, etc.  We also, have a few core applications built on Classic ASP, which we are renovating and modernizing.   We extensively use Team Foundation Server as our ALM platform, and we rely on agile methodologies for our development, testing, and deployment processes.  We are always looking for ways to push the envelope and find the best solution to the problem, regardless of technology.

If you have a true passion for writing maintainable, testable, SOLID, software, have strong analytical and troubleshooting skills, and are looking for an opportunity to work with amazing colleagues, then we would love to talk with you.  

Requirements:

  •  Bachelor's degree in computer science, MIS, or related discipline, or equivalent related experience
  • Deep understanding of SOLID principles of object oriented design
  • Experience building web applications, ideally on the Microsoft technology stack with C#, ASP.Net MVC, and Web API
  • Proficiency in unit testing and TDD
  • Experience designing and developing high performing, relational databases
  • Experience with automated build systems and continuous integration/deployment
  • Solid analytical and problem solving skills
  • Ability and desire to thrive in a fast paced, agile, team environment
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal

 Strongly desired:

  • REST / RESTful web service design and programming
  • Experience with front-end frameworks such as AngularJS or knockout
  • Familiarity with message queues or event bus technologies like RabbitMQ and NServiceBus
  • Experience with NoSQL platforms, such as Redis and MongoDB

Quip -- Diversity Scholarship

Posted April 11th, 2017

At Quip, we emphasize building a company that prioritizes work-life balance, inclusivity, and diversity. Part of it is culture, part of it is hiring, and part of it is community outreach. With this program, we hope to have an impact beyond our team, and do a small part to encourage students getting started in computer science, with these values in mind.

That’s how it all started, and it’s the main reason why we will continue to do it. But there’s another motivating factor for the Quip team too — the impact it has on us, in the Quip office. For 2016’s scholarship, more than half our engineering team was involved in reading applications, meeting the applicants, and answering questions. Even our co-founders, Bret and Kevin, met with candidates to answer questions and talk about engineering. So many incredible, deserving students applied, and our only regret was not being able to make an impact for every single one of them.

How it works

The Quip team will choose 10 recipients — 5 winners and 5 runners-up — to visit our office in San Francisco for a full day of learning, mentorship, and meeting the team (all expenses paid). At the end, each scholarship winner will receive $5,000 and each runner-up will receive $1,000 toward their education.

We're looking for applicants who:

Are part of a group that has been historically underrepresented in STEM (including but not limited to students who are: Women; Black, LatinX, American Indian, LGBTQ+, first-generation, and/or people with disabilities)

Have demonstrated interest or declaration of studying computer science or a related field.

Are currently enrolled as an undergraduate or masters student in the U.S. or Canada, graduating in 2018 or later.

If this sounds like you, please apply!

Applications are due on Sunday, April 16 at 11:59pm PDT.
