The Opportunity

Are you able to work autonomously with little direction? Are you a team player willing to go the extra mile? Do you have the desire to innovate? If your answer to these questions is “yes”, then we want to hear from you! Every day, SkyHive's startup environment will present new challenges, opportunities to grow, and a place to build something truly unique. 

We are looking for a back-end developer with experience working with .NET Core and C#. As a back-end developer, you are familiar with interfacing with APIs, with the database (in our case, MongoDB), and with the frontend. You will be responsible for expanding and maintaining an existing API, as well as for developing a new one. You will collaborate with our Machine Learning specialists to define interfaces between our code and ML services. You are expected to have a basic understanding of how our Angular2+ frontend will utilize the data that our APIs return. You are expected to have a basic understanding of synchronous and asynchronous operations. An ability to communicate and collaborate with both project management and other technical experts is expected as well.

Our stack is Angular/Typescript – C# (.NET Core) – MongoDB, though typically you will only be responsible for working on C# classes and endpoints on the backend.


The Role

•	Strong understanding of C# and the .NET Core
•	Able to interface with 3d party APIs and create endpoints in own APIs
•	Able to interface with the database (MongoDB)
•	Knowledge of ticketing systems and version control
•	Collaborating with project management and establishing estimates for dev work
•	Applying Agile best practices in your work

Qualifications (Must haves)

•	C# and .NET Core
