If you love the thrill of playing a key role in defining a product offering, of seeing your systems in action on real hardware in real-world situations, and in piecing together the puzzle as opposed to being a small component of it – this is the role for you.

We are working with a client whose mission revolves around supporting the maintaining of democracies, and they are looking for Forward Deployed Engineer to join their team.

About the role:

As a Forward Deployed Engineer, you will have a deep understanding of the technical aspects of the product and of how software operates in real-world scenarios (think complex systems with limited hardware and unreliable connections). To succeed in this role, it’s essential to grasp the difficulties that arise beyond the abstractions.
Due to the varied nature of the role, your responsibilities may vary day to day. From addressing limitations in the capabilities being developed to enhancing performance in various product codebases; from shaping the tools and hardware used by backend engineers to finding solutions to practical constraints while keeping core software design in mind, no two days will be the same.

The most exciting challenges in this opportunity will be maintaining a broad range of knowledge, both technical (having a wide range of solutions to draw from) and social (knowing who is accountable, knowledgeable, or working on a particular aspect). This directly translates to the ample career growth opportunities stemming from this role, as you’ll be able to specialize in areas that are of particular interest to you.

About you:

If you have background in computer science (or  related field), good knowledge of scripting languages such (i.e. BASH/Python), as well as experience in software engineering using (C++/Java/ Rust) and got excited reading the opening line of this ad, please apply directly, or email  a copy of your CV to nicole@durlstonpartners.com to discuss this opportunity or any of those listed on our website.
