What you’ll be doing...

The MapQuest Developer Services team is looking for mid to senior level engineers who thrive in high-energy, fast-paced environments, are unafraid to dive into any system or language, and love to design creative solutions to thorny problems. You must also be a team player, and a powerhouse in getting stuff done quickly and professionally.

The team focuses on several major initiatives which include but are not limited to:

  • building and improving new mapping libraries
  • developing a microservice architecture for managing customers
  • creating dashboards for displaying customer trends, API transaction usage, and more

While every day is different, your responsibilities include:

  1. Executing on Brilliant Ideas - The team is always looking to be ahead of the customer. We are always working on our own projects too, dreamed up inside the team, to improve the product whether it’s on a day-to-day basis or on dedicated Hack Days.
  1. Technical Debt Reduction - The team has a sense of pride and ownership in what we do. To maintain this, we always seek to undo old hacks or shortcuts, improve the systems we have, and implement better ways of doing things without requiring that the business ask us to do so.
  1. Problem Solving - Thousands of developers and businesses use our services in new and interesting ways each day. They constantly challenge us with new use cases for our own products, as well as new combinations we never considered.
  1. System Health - We have large production systems that have to keep running. We’re constantly working to improve monitoring, up-time, performance, and scalability.
