Job Description

ALLOY’s engineering team provides software development and technical expertise to solve practical, real-world problems and build high-end, world-class customer experiences. We maintain existing products, architect new ones, estimate effort and provide informed opinions around what’s possible, reasonable and feasible. We strive to incorporate more DevOps practices into our work every day and to continually leverage the latest cloud computing services. Our engineers are fearless, aggressive makers and problem solvers. We love to combine talents to overcome the obstacles that strike fear in the hearts of most shops. We learn something new every day and never shy away from conversations, music recommendations, or new ideas.

The position is located at our headquarters, in Birmingham, Alabama and will require a daily, onsite presence to be most effective. However, at this time we are operating in a remote capacity due to Coronavirus/COVID-19 health guidelines.
