Senior Software Engineer

Boston, MA

Job Description


meQuilibrium impacts the potential and performance of employees through the power of resilience. Our company culture offers a positive, team-based, fast-paced environment that’s grounded in the very values it teaches. We believe in supporting creative, entrepreneurial spirits —and we’re looking for people like you.

As a Senior Backend Engineer, you will be responsible for the development of our core product and its supporting microservices. These systems are heavily API focused so a comprehensive understanding of RESTful API design and development is essential for success. Engineers are assigned to pods to work on projects, so there is an opportunity to work on many different areas of our platform, or choose to specialize. A common denominator across all projects: we believe in comprehensive documentation and excellent communication to facilitate the quick on-boarding of any engineer to an unfamiliar project or service.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • The development and maintenance of our core platform, internal tools, and services that support them.
  • Development of customer-facing product features, from requirements gathering, technical design, to final implementation.
  • The willingness to own the products you build and help drive them forward through technical recommendations, ideas and innovation.
  • Maintaining and improving our comprehensive test suites to ensure our software is as reliable as possible.
  • Identifying performance and security issues through the monitoring and analysis of various log sources, and providing recommendations on how to resolve them.
  • Mentoring peers, reviewing technical designs, performing code review, and setting a high standard of technical excellence for others to follow.


  • 5+ years experience in software engineering, including experience managing production systems.
  • PHP experience with MVC framework such as Laravel or Symfony required.
  • Experience designing and developing high-availability, scalable RESTful APIs for both customer and front end application consumption.
  • Clear understanding of the principles of Object Oriented programming.
  • Demonstrated success working on software engineering problems that span multiple products.
  • Demonstrated ability to develop enterprise software solutions with a solid reliance on end-to-end testing.
  • Experience working with large datasets, developing performant queries to provide data and reports for API consumption.
  • Experience working within the AWS ecosystem and the use of Docker.
  • Ability to work with and develop CI/CD pipelines (we use Jenkins).
  • Bonus: JavaScript and TypeScript experience or a willingness to learn how to develop with them, to support Front End peers.
  • #LI-Remote

Our headquarters are based in Boston.  There is the flexibility for this role to be remote; hybrid or even onsite when safe return based on personal preference sometime in early 2022.  There will be times when travel to the Boston office is necessary for team meetings or training.  


meQuilibrium is an Equal Opportunity Employer. We respect and seek to empower each individual and support the diverse cultures, backgrounds, perspectives, skills and experiences within our workforce. We encourage all to apply.
