orm at C2FO (Leawood, KS)

Full Time

Platform teams own the core services that power C2FO's main product. We're transforming the platform to be event-driven. Come help us do it! You'll learn how to use Kafka and other evented systems on a team where you aren't punished for making mistakes.

There are plenty of great opportunities to learn and grow at C2FO. We have an annual conference budget for every engineer, O'Reilly learning platform memberships, educational stipends, a mentor program, and a standard career progression for both engineers and engineering managers.

The health of the team is important. There are frequent opportunities to build relationships with your teammates: retreats, show & share, hack weeks, and our own Platform teams' monthly Mandatory Fun Time (it's not actually mandatory).
