Are you excited to build interfaces that control the physical world around you? Do you love the idea of crafting experiences used by millions of customers all over the world? Are you a tireless customer advocate?

If the above holds true for you, then we would love to talk to you! Alarm.com is looking for a user-centric Senior Software Engineer to join our Home Automation Customer Experience team, focusing on smart home web applications. We craft customer experiences that make interacting with Internet of Things (IoT) smart home devices a breeze!

You will lead significant projects across our product line, seeing development through from architectural design to prototyping and development. One of the many challenges you will face is taking nuanced technological requirements and working alongside Product Managers, UX Designers, Quality Engineers, and other Software Engineers to transform them into extensible, clean code for user-friendly designs. Our customers expect top-notch reliability, speed, and ease of use, and it is up to our team to deliver exceptional home automation experiences.

Your work will provide you the opportunity to showcase creative problem solving, passion for learning, and motivation for improvement. You must be able to communicate effectively and blend multiple business needs in your work. Our platform supports several business units, so there are always multiple perspectives to consider. We also work at scale – we have millions of customers and millions of devices sending us data all the time.

Very few small companies innovate and develop across such a broad range of technologies as Alarm.com. This position is ideal for the candidate who seeks a friendly company culture where one can work closely with smart and highly productive people. Getting to work with cutting edge software and hardware to develop outstanding consumer products is the icing on the cake.

WHAT CAN YOU DO FOR ALARM.COM?

  • Develop full stack software, with an emphasis on front-end web development, working primarily with Ember and C#.
  • Engage in the research, evaluation, and application of new technologies and methodologies to solve challenging problems.
  • Take part in the entire project life cycle, from requirements development to deployment.
  • Work hard and be flexible. We have quick development cycles, evolving requirements, and lots of cross-team collaboration.
  • Exercise good judgment. Know when to work quickly and when to build a robust solution. Handle corner cases in a sensible way. Thoughtfully consider the trade-offs between UI perfection and technical complexity.
  • Bring your ideas and expertise! We want our engineers to collaborate on product development, not blindly build to a spec. Ensure that proposed UIs are feasible and consider localization, accessibility, and cross-browser compatibility.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

  • Bachelor’s in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, related field, or equivalent work experience.
  • 5+ years of professional software development experience.
  • 2+ years of experience with JavaScript/JavaScript web frameworks (e.g. Ember).
  • Proficient in CSS and HTML.
  • Proficient in object-oriented languages (e.g. C#).
  • Experience with JavaScript build tools (e.g. Grunt) and testing frameworks (e.g. Mirage).
  • Experience with package managers (e.g. npm).
  • Familiarity with TypeScript.
  • Familiarity with Web API design.
  • Familiarity with JSON serialization.
  • Familiarity with networking concepts, principles, and technologies (e.g. WebSockets).

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?

  • Collaborate with outstanding people: We hire only the best. Our standards are high and our employees enjoy working alongside other high achievers.
  • Make an immediate impact: You can expect to be given real responsibility for bringing new technologies to the marketplace. You will be empowered to perform as soon as you join the team!
  • Work with real stuff: You will write code that interacts with the physical world. You’ll be able to see your work in action with the numerous IoT devices we work with every day.
  • Gain well rounded experience: Alarm.com offers a diverse and dynamic environment where you will get the chance to work directly with executives and develop expertise across multiple areas of the business.
  • Be Empowered: We don’t want to micro-manage you. We barely want to tell you what to do. We want you to own stuff and bring your experience to make those products best in class.
  • Work with the latest technologies: You’ll gain exposure to a broad spectrum of IoT and SaaS technology. Our tech stack includes .NET, SQL Server, Ember.js, Node.js, Kafka, as well as native iOS and Android applications.
  • Focus on fun: Alarm.com places high value on our team culture. We even have a committee dedicated to hosting a stand-out holiday party, happy hours, and other fun corporate events.
