Software Engineer

Updated on Oct 12, 2021 9:31:34 AM

Access is looking for top-notch software engineers who are passionate about developing software for the JVM. We are primarily a Java/Spring shop, but we do maintain Scala/Akka Streams applications.

The Software Engineer is involved in the design, architecture and development of REST API micro-services, web applications, and other software solutions used by millions of customers.

All of our applications are hosted by Amazon Web Services. Our build server is Jenkins. Our continuous delivery pipeline is powered by CodePipeline/CodeDeploy. We communicate via Slack and our issue tracker is JIRA.

Access Development is the best-kept software secret in the Wasatch Front. We're big believers in the OKR approach to getting things done. A software project begins with an idea, which can come from anyone in the company. Our Product team vets the concept by building mockups to test actual users, interviewing customers, and evaluating risks. The result is a well thought out product that stands a fighting chance of success before we write a single line of code.

We have the best work/live balance of any software company.

This position is based in our Salt Lake City office next to the beautiful Jordan River trail system. We are looking for a Temporary Software Engineer with a possibility of continued employment.
