As a Senior Software Engineer working on our data backend, you will have the opportunity to build scalable low-code APIs to communicate with external data sources including relational & NoSQL databases as well as Elasticsearch. You will maintain & enhance support for many major relational databases in addition to adding support for new relational & NoSQL databases. Your goal is to enable customers to get the most out of their data - allowing them to easily update, fetch & visualize their data.

Appian is a low-code application platform for building powerful, enterprise-grade web & mobile apps with flexible, visual models instead of complex custom code. Appian Records provide a business-level data abstraction & a common query framework for unifying data sourced from disparate external systems. With your data in a central location, you can easily adjust your data model, define how users view your data, & integrate enterprise processes so users can take informed action when viewing the data.

To be successful in this role, you need:

  • Degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or related field
  • Working knowledge of different persistence systems (relational and/or NoSQL databases, Elasticsearch), distributed systems, & cloud infrastructure
  • Experienced in designing & implementing performant, highly available & mission critical distributed systems
  • Advance knowledge of data structures & algorithms 
  • Leverage relevant software development experience to radiate best practices & faster development.
  • Manage availability, latency, scalability & efficiency of the product by engineering reliability into software & systems.
  • Mentor junior software engineers by sharing best-practices & providing guidance on how to become more proficient.
  • Share advanced/expert knowledge with others in the department, both on & off team; maintain a reputation as a key resource in those areas.
  • Lead technological changes to keep the platform modern.
  • Effectively communicate technical designs verbally, visually and/or in writing for small to medium sized technical audiences.
  • Ideally 5+ years of experience in Java

Appian is headquartered in the McLean, Virginia area, & we are supportive of both Remote & Hybrid work environments.

 Some of the tools & resources we will equip you with include: 

  • An on-boarding program that will provide hands-on experience with our platform, & the processes & technologies we use in the Engineering department.
  • Our team works primarily with K, Java, Git; while also having the autonomy to use other technologies as needed to accomplish our goals more effectively.
  • Personal Indie Time (dedicated time to build whatever you want with whomever you want) & annual hackathons that provide opportunities for growth & leadership, which are activities that inspire others & get creative juices flowing.
