About the role:
As a Lead Software Engineer or Lead Software Engineer in Test, you’ll be designing and implementing technical solutions to business problems. You’ll collaborate with other engineers to build the best systems for the problem at hand while mentoring junior developers.

In addition, you will work with Product Management, Analytics, and Operations to deliver business value.  

Our most successful Lead Engineers are able to tackle a variety of tasks from designing microservices, operational issues, production debugging, risk mitigation and management, and the ability to pair with others outside of your immediate team in order to accomplish any task.

We're excited about you if you have:

  • 5+ years of experience in a full stack development role
  • Proficiency in one or more object-oriented programming languages.
  • The ability to solve problems in more than one language, and know exactly why one of them is better
  • Expertise with building software features, enterprise architecture, and API integration to facilitate first in class software.
  • Project management skills, specifically the ability to oversee projects end-to-end, estimate work, and break up problems into deliverable parts.
  • Experience developing and maintaining automated tests and frameworks using open source tools and technologies and proven ability to scale those to multiple teams within engineering.
  • Experience managing test infrastructure and strategy.
  • Deployed multiple web applications from a full-stack perspective.
  • Experience collaborating with product managers to plan and scope products iteratively. 
  • A Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent experience

Data Engineer II

What projects are you most excited about?

My job requires me to think about my work from many different angles, and often make decisions when there is no obvious 'right' answer. I really enjoy the opportunity of tackling new challenges and mastering different decision-making frameworks.

Monica

Sr Manager, Product Management

How does the company support your career growth?

Enova supported my career/growth with training when I started. In baseline, the training program for new software engineers, we were given the time to learn before joining a team. It was great to have dedicated time just focused on learning and getting acclimated to Enova before jumping into project work.

Elena

Software Engineer II

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Enova is willing to take a chance on you. When I started at Enova I had very little formal experience, and since then I have had 3 very different roles in the company and have done things I wouldn't have imagined were possible for me!
