About the team:
Our application infrastructure runs on AWS, and we have been improving our build and deployment mechanisms towards full CI/CD. At the same time, we’ve been swapping out proprietary solutions for AWS services where possible. We are early adopters of serverless (see https://github.com/LambdaSharp), and are always pushing ourselves to adopt new developments in technology.
Because all our tests are automated and our customers demand a high-performance and defect free application platform, we set the bar high. If you are confident you’re ready for an upgrade, and you’re willing and able to continue to push yourself and keep growing into a world-class engineer, then apply to join our team.

Broadcasting to you live from the heart of America’s Finest City (San Diego), our goal is to help our customers help their customers with effortless self-service experiences. It’s what keeps us up at night and gets us out of bed in the morning. It all starts with good software (okay, really good software). But it’s our people, too. It takes a talented and motivated team to make the MindTouch magic happen, dedicated pros who work hard and have fun doing it. And that’s where you come in. At MindTouch, you’ll grow personally and professionally alongside a diverse and motivated group, all while helping support a vision that you can be proud of.
