At Hitachi Vantara (Permanent), in Lisbon, Portugal
Expires at : 2021-10-25
Hitachi Vantara combines technology, intellectual property, and industry knowledge to deliver data-managing solutions that help enterprises improve their customer's experiences, develop new revenue streams, and lower the costs of business.
What we love about the beautiful piece of text above is that it has so many words and it still fails spectacularly at giving you the slightest clue of what we do.
Here's our take :
Hitachi Vantara builds products and platforms that power solutions in Big Data, IoT, and more generically Data Management, Analysis, and Visualization space.
Some quick examples :
We helped the state of Andhra Pradesh become a Smart State, improving the lives of the citizens of one of the most populated states in India
We helped the German Federal Police analyze their existing data to improve public safety
We helped the Loma Linda University Health Care create better analysis tools for their patients, improving patient care
This position will work as a member of the Software Engineering team to develop and maintain parts of an Enterprise software suite, which includes internal libraries and end-user target customer products.
By joining us, you'll work as part of a lean, agile organization and you'll be able to leverage your tech skills to build awesome User Interfaces for our product lines.
Who would've thought we'd want that from a frontend developer?).
Work in a multi-national environment with close ties to our other engineering locations in the USA, Europe, and Asia (mainly Japan).
Author developer documentation and participate in the development of end-user documentation (We actually expect you to document the stuff you code.
I know another shocker).
Mentor and advise junior team members.
Communicate effectively with technical and non-technical members of the project team (You'll have to talk to people and people will have to understand what you say pretty low bar, we're sure you've got it!).
Simultaneously handle multiple tasks and projects.
Your profile : Reliable, self-motivated, and focused on high-quality delivery of work products.
Skilled in navigating the dynamics of working as part of a team.
Excellent written and verbal communication skills in a team environment.
Personal drive to be the best at their job.
We're converging to React as our main framework so if you don't know Backbone that is probably fine).
A strong geek side, like for Open source projects (We managed to get the geek requirement in. That's mandatory. You should know why Christmas Halloween and find it funny even after you heard it 25 times.
and not afraid of trying new techniques.
Ability to quickly understand technical and business requirements and be able to translate them into technical implementation (Because that's what a developer does and that's why we pay you).
Bachelor's degree or equivalent in Computer Science or related field (This would be nice because it means someone has taught you (or at least tried to) some SW Engineering concepts which *might* be useful).
Oral and written English is a must (We work a lot with the other engineering groups in the organization, so being able to speak, write and understand English is pretty important.
And for the record, just because you can order beers in English while you're on vacation doesn't mean you can engage in a technical conversation.
Sometimes the technical conversation is followed by beers, but that's a different situation).
Nice to have
Know how to test it is a big plus since our teams are self-responsible for delivering what they built with quality. Also, concepts like state management, internationalization, routing, or application bundling should not shock you.
Understanding of agile or other iterative software development methodologies (We use agile, mainly SCRUM, sometimes Kanban when that is a better solution.
Knowing the process will help).
Other languages knowledge is also useful (As you know or should know, knowing several languages and paradigms leads to better problem-solving).
Benefits & Perks
Health plan (extendable to spouses / children)
Mobile phone and communication plan
Gym reimbursement (We had to ask for this one since we have a tradition of people bringing in cakes to celebrate pretty much everything.
We’re the fittest, most handsome engineering team around. Trust us!)
Informal and relaxed work environment
Lots of growth opportunities
Pension Fund (If you ever get to retire, then the company will pay you something for as long as you live)
Life Insurance (Because sometimes the code wins, but at least your family will get good money)
