As our Sr Software Architect you will be at the center of building the platform that enables us to redefine the Commercial Real Estate industry.

  • Multiply the efforts of 200+ developers by setting architectural and development standards
  • Work with a coordinated team of technology professionals
  • Provide mentorship and coaching to junior employees
  • Other tasks as assigned

 

What someone will need to be successful in this role:

  • 10+ years’ technology experience in software development
  • 3+ years’ technology experience in software architecture
  • 3+ years’ technology experience in drawing up architecture diagrams and design models
  • Hands on coding skills required
  • Proven track record of implementing well thought out architectural patterns
  • Cross-platform development experience required

  • Proficient using version control (git) or different build, packaging & release management tools
  • Passionate about developing quality products that exceed users' expectations
  • Experience following Agile principles- including backlog development, planning, and tracking
  • Honesty, integrity, transparency, even when it is hard
  • Spirit of collaboration- we don't work in isolation, and our work must serve the wider organization
  • Willing to mentor team members, and willing to learn from the team
  • Ability to maintain confidentiality, adhere to Berkadia's policies and exhibit proficiency and understanding of Berkadia's Values

 

Bonus experience if you have:

  • Experience with automation/testing tools
  • Familiarity with Event Sourcing à la Greg Young or The Eventide Project, as opposed to merely event-based
  • PostgreSQL and Amazon Aurora experience
  • Experience with an enterprise data catalog or data dictionary

 

 Employee Benefits

  • 18 PTO days + 2 floating holidays & 10 paid holidays per year
  • Generous tuition reimbursement towards a Masters or Bachelors degree

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
