Overview

You’ll join a unique team that’s working inside of Intuit’s Horizon Innovation Program (HIP). HIP is an internal startup incubator for scaling massive new business opportunities. Think of it as taking the advantages of a startup (autonomy, speed, new markets) and melding them with the advantages of a seasoned organization (built-in infrastructure, security, legal) to make an

outsized impact. Sounds like the best of both worlds? We think so, too.

We’re hiring a Senior Software Engineer to join our team and keep our infrastructure secure, resilient, and performant. As part of our team, you’ll scale our Tax Form REST APIs to handle millions of filings for this

coming tax season. You’ll contribute to architecting the tools to support our distributed services. You’ll engineer our services to make them resilient and productive. Here are some recent examples of work we’ve done (gives a taste for what your day-to-day might look like):

* Created DynamoDB indexes and tables to handle millions of rows
* Built webhooks infrastructure with resiliency, security, and throttling in mind
* Implemented message queues (SQS/ActiveMQ) for notifications across services
* Worked with security engineers to ensure data and services meet Intuit’s high

standards
* Managed new deployments with Kubernetes
