Forward Networks is revolutionizing the way large networks are managed. Forward's advanced software delivers a "digital twin" of the network, enabling network operators to verify intent, predict network behavior, avoid outages, and simplify network management. Our platform can be implemented on premises, in the cloud, and in hybrid environments.
The results? More reliable networks, reduced outages, and reduced business risk.

Designing the data model for new product features
Proposing and implementing REST APIs to support the Forward Networks web application and to publish to customers
Constructively reviewing product designs, technical design documents, and code changes
At least five years of full lifecycle software development experience

Familiarity with the principles of functional programming
Good communication skills
Nice to have:
Experience with the Spring Web MVC framework or Spring Boot
