At Northwestern Mutual, we are strong, innovative and growing. We invest in our people. We care and make a positive difference. 

What's the role?

We’re looking for an experienced full stack engineer to help design and deliver an enterprise Notification platform to our Clients and Financial Representatives.  In this role, you have the potential to bring immediate value to our clients by building systems that communicate via Push to Mobile, SMS, Email, Web and Chat.  You will be immersed in the vast breadth of modern tools and technologies to get the job done, such as AWS Cloud infrastructure and platform services, data visualizations, NodeJS micro-services, Front-end web development, and a robust CI/CD pipeline.  As a senior engineer, you will work in an agile and innovative environment, solving complex problems and collaborating with architects and designers to deliver the platform.


Bring Your Best! What this role needs:

  • Ability to analyze, design, develop, and deploy web apps and micro services hosted within AWS Cloud Infrastructure.
  • Strong JavaScript experience building backend NodeJS micro-services and responsive React web applications.

  • Self-motivated and driven.  A team player that effectively works well with other engineers, product owners, and non-technical roles.
  • 5+ years of development experience.

What you’ll get to do:

  • Build day-to-day like a start-up - incrementally and iteratively - but with the security and resources of an enterprise budget.
  • Release to production early and often - you won’t be working on a product for a year before it sees the light of day; we believe in MVPs.
  • Work with a talented, mission-driven, fun-loving team who values your input and your individuality.
  • Using a modern tech stack, deliver a high value enterprise notification platform - think Sendgrid + Twilio + OneSignal.

  • Strong front-end tool belt (such as, React/Redux, ES6, Babel, Webpack, Saas)
  • Advocate of test driven development, with experience using unit testing frameworks such as Jest

  • Knowledge of engineering best practices; including analyzing, designing, developing, deploying and supporting software solutions and infrastructure.
