We are in the process of selecting candidates to fill open positions in the combined company following CenturyLink’s acquisition of Level 3 Communications. All qualified candidates who express interest by submitting an application to an open posting will be considered. We welcome, and encourage, all application submissions while we continue our integration process. But based on business needs, preference may be given to internal applicants from CenturyLink and Level 3. As with all roles in the combined company, filling these roles is contingent upon the merger close.
Who we are:
CenturyLink Cloud is the focal point for all cloud-related development inside the larger CenturyLink Corporation. We consciously maintain our small company/startup feel, while taking advantage of the resources available from such a large company. As such, we have a very strongly focused dev/ops culture, highly skilled agile workforce, with development as our core activity. We build the cloud, we build the applications that run on it, and we make it run. Every day. All the time. It’s what we do.
We have an opening for an experienced Senior Lead Software Engineer to expand our team of engineers who are developing one of CenturyLink’s cloud portals. This person should have a strong ability to apply solid Agile principles to the software development lifecycle and to champion those principles to his/her peers.
Who we hire:
Just like everyone else, we want to hire unbelievably bright developers, who are a joy to work with, love to work with others, solve problems, listen well, and lead as appropriate. Oh, yeah, they have to love to learn new things, too. On top of that, our ideal candidate also should have a passion for cloud computing and for creating applications and services that make developers’ lives easier while helping them create their enterprise-ready applications.
Limiting yourself to just one area of the technology stack would be unthinkable for this kind of developer, so we hope that you are comfortable doing everything from creating beautiful, friendly UIs, to crafting logical and easy to use APIs, all the way to writing distributed computing algorithms between applications running on entirely different clouds.
Since our teams operate in an extremely Agile culture, using a combination of XP and Kanban practices and processes, you’d be encouraged to collaborate closely, deliver small pieces of working software frequently, work in pairs, write your code test first, and think about things like cycle time and WIP limits. All of this adds up to an exciting, challenging, and always interesting place to work, where hard problems are found and solved every day.
