Job Description


*Exclusive role to Signify Technology**

Principle Engineer - AWS Serverless Architecture

Direct Hire - Remote (Now and Post COVID)

$225,000 - $250,000 per year + Equity

Signify Technology has partnered with a global consumer products company who have asked us to begin a retained search for a number of critical hires to support their global e-commerce and in-store retail operations.

This role will be working on the Services Team responsible for supporting all brands and subsidiaries worldwide. You will be working directly with our client's Principle Architect to facilitate the client's migration from a primarily Scala codebase over to a Serverless AWS Microservice Architecture.

This project is completely greenfield, the successful candidate will be the first hire and will own the entire process from requirements gathering, architecture and design, POCs through to delivery and implementation. Although this is an individual contributor role, as the primary expert for all things AWS Serverless within the team, candidates must be comfortable with and thrive on mentoring.

This position will be a permanent, direct hire role and the candidate will be able to work remotely from any of the following states - New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Virginia, North Carolina, Texas, Minnesota, Tennessee, Arkansas, Maryland, Illinois, Pennsylvania (Philly Only), Florida (Restrictions due to our client's current benefits and medical package for employees.)


  • True expert with backend systems including microservice architecture, serverless and AWS (Lambda, Gateway and DynamoDB essential).
  • Strong preference for candidates who have worked using Typescript within AWS Lambda however candidates with extensive Lambda experience in other languages (Scala, Java, Python etc) and experience using Typescript in other capacities
  • Proven ability to say "no" and articulate your ideas and point of view during the planning and design balanced by your commitment to delivering the solution once a decision is made, even if your direction isn't the one selected.

Interviews being scheduled from today and as this is an exclusive and retained search with a client who we have made numerous recent placements with - expect a quick turn around,

This position is a Direct Hire Permanent Role and will not be open to C2C Candidates. Our client is not able to provide sponsorship so applicants must be authorized to work within the US without requiring sponsorship now and in the future.

Job Type: Full-time

Pay: $225,000.00 - $250,000.00 per year
