What You'll Do

Part architect, part developer; you will design and implement cloud native microservices to complement web and mobile platforms. Cloud engineering at TechSlice is a critical role that requires creative problem solving. Many of our projects include novel processing techniques that don’t fit the mold of other data platforms. This requires working through these challenges with our team and alongside our client entrepreneurs. Our clients are subject matter experts in their field, bringing their novel concepts and patented technologies into the market. TechSlice is the software accelerator making this possible.

You will participate in the entire product life cycle, including requirements analysis, architecture design, code (and infrastructure-as-code) implementation, functional and performance testing, deployment, and support. You will bring your deep technical and software expertise in cloud native approaches to a team that delivers strong work focused on saving and improving lives.
