Job Title: Sr. Software Engineer
Department: Engineering
Reports To: Engineering Manager


Global Analytic s Holdings is an analytic-driven e-commerce company intensely focused on serving the global under-banked consumer. Our mission is to provide the most innovative and trustworthy products and services to this segment of society that is traditionally lack options financially. We leverage world-class analytic, software engineering, eCommerce know-how and lending operations to build and deliver the most compelling mobile and on-line credit solutions for the under-banked. Global Analytic operates in both the UK and US markets, with head-quarters in San Diego and offices in Philadelphia, London, Chennai and Delhi.


Sr. Software Engineers who want to ratchet up the degree of challenge and excitement in their work - and incorporate some Wow! factor into their day - will find what they're looking for at Global Analytic. We want Software Engineers whose intelligence, reliability, judgment, skill, and leadership will turn them into tomorrow's CTOs and VP's of Engineering.

As an Sr. Software Engineer at GA, your mission will be to work in teams in defining, designing, and implementing software systems in a variety of technologies, with a focus on scalable web-based services and top rate mobile user experiences. Working as a team, your main responsibility will be to define, design, build, test, and deploy production software systems in an elegant, practical, efficient, and otherwise technically excellent manner. We currently use Django/python, Magento/PHP, MySQL, PostgreSQL, HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript, C++, Java, and objective C (for iOS). However unlike many companies that focus on proficiency in one language or in a specific technology, we look for Sr. Software Engineers who have solid programming skills experience (regardless of language or technology) and who are excellent at picking up new things quickly.

We believe allSr. Software Engineers should be a solid contributor to the entire project life cycle. You will be expected to refine product definitions, create estimates, document designs, write code, and test following our established development processes. Our perfect candidate is likely to be on the two year plan, which means that as a rising star, you should look forward to growing out of this role within the next two years. Kudos to you if you someday become the CTO or VP of Engineering somewhere else; we'd like to have you as one of our Software Engineers today.
