YOU ARE...
Passionate about technology and see the world a little differently than your peers. Everywhere you look, there's possibility. Opportunity. Boundaries to push and challenges to solve. You believe software engineering changes how people live.

At Client, we believe that, too. We're one of the world's first tech companies, and still going strong. Like us, you know the online and mobile worlds better than any other—and see patterns that no one else sees. Our software engineers write code that can survive under the pressure of hundreds of thousands of requests per minute.

We are looking for talented Lead Cloud Software Engineers to join our expanding platform as a service team. Our platform as a service is responsible for providing the foundation for Client cloud-based products, and includes a variety of features and services similar to those found on Google Cloud Platform and Amazon AWS.

We work with some of the smartest, nicest people you'll meet. People who work here say the problems they work on are enormously challenging, and that the team culture is the most supportive they have seen.

Curious? Read on. We're looking for software engineering talent like you.
