Descrierea jobului


Since 2017 Tacit Knowledge is part of Pitney Bowes, a global technology company that provides commerce solutions in the areas of shipping, mailing, data, and e-commerce.

Tacit Knowledge is a software solutions consultancy, specializing in E-commerce, with roots in Silicon Valley. With offices in North America and Europe, we’re a community of like-minded people who craft sustainable software solutions and care about the success of our teammates and clients. Working together, we make technology an enabler for global brands rather than a constraint.

Our business is built on the foundation of attracting, growing and retaining a talented and motivated team. We encourage our employees to speak up, use their initiative and take responsibility.  

Problem solvers at heart, we love complex challenges and we’ve never encountered a problem for which we couldn’t find a solution. We leverage our collective experience to deliver optimal results across a broad spectrum of business and technology challenges.

About Software Engineering team:

Our development team is at the core of our company, being the essence of who we are. It’s by the virtue of every single engineer’s effort that we are capable to ensure the success of the applications and systems we build. Being part of our development team is both challenging and rewarding – it’s quite an effort to envision the architecture of a future to-be-built system, and at the same time it’s a thrilling experience to see a system going live. To accomplish all that our engineers take part in diverse project activities:

Understand customer’s needs and provide guidance during project’s discovery phase

Bring ideas to the table that shape system’s architecture

Work closely with DevOps team to ensure that infrastructure meets all the necessary requirements and can sustain application’s needs

Engage into intriguing discussions with Business Analysts and Quality Assurance folks on the subject of how we can ensure that our solution perfectly meets customer’s necessities

Identify required tooling and frameworks that would make a perfect technological symbiosis

Perform highly detailed system analysis to determine weak points of the system and collectively come up with a specifically targeted solution

Share your expertise and learn from the colleagues through pair programming sessions, estimations, peer code reviews, and lots of interesting discussions on technical topics throughout a day


At Tacit Knowledge you will:

Have a chance to embrace a truly Agile environment with its bells and whistles – Standups, Estimations, Retrospectives etc

Be part of a like-minded team that is result & technology driven

Find yourself engaged into challenging technical discussions that are meant to solve real world problems

Take part in architectural decisions and see those take shape in the form of top notch quality code

Apply Pair Programming practice with your teammates to build an elegant solution to a complex problem

Have a chance to work side by side with DevOps team to understand and build Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery pipelines

Work closely with Quality Engineers to ensure your solution complies to the quality standards

Take part in Performance Optimization exercises – simulate high load using tools like JMeter, perform system analysis, apply tuning to the system, and draw conclusions.

Play a friendly match of ping pong whenever you fix a broken build 😉
