Position Summary

Deloitte is seeking an experienced Engineering Lead to help drive rapid growth of a big data and machine learning product startup embedded inside Deloitte. The team is agile and adaptive, responding to technology change quickly. We’re a close team of highly effective technologists and good communication skills with an attention for detail are key. If you love to solve problems in creative ways, we’d like to talk to you.

As our Engineering Lead, you will lead software architecture and integration design, helping to plan, size, develop, and maintain exciting new features for the platform. Our team faces a variety of unique and interesting technical challenges, and you will help tackle the most difficult of those. You will demonstrate to the team what good software engineering looks like, from designing APIs to testing to continuous deployment and documentation.

You will not only lead our feature development, but also the engineering team through positive examples and professional growth. This includes setting standards and demonstrating best practices for code review and quality assurance. You will also represent the product outside of the team by reviewing, advising, and assisting with difficult client implementations. As you grow with the team and the company, you will help spread these good practices to the wider developer community and help grow the team.

This involves coding, testing, documenting, and helping to ensure successful deployment. Reviewing pull requests from other engineers are commonplace, as are pair programming and other similar duties. Our product and technical leaders collaborate frequently with engineers and rely on them to provide insightful feedback on the process, architecture, implementation, and quality of the product. Finally, our team troubleshoots issues in a timely manner which is critical to ensuring the stability of the platform and our client implementations.

Caution against fraudulent job offers!

We have been informed of instances where jobseekers are led to believe of fictitious job opportunities with Deloitte US (“Deloitte”). In one or more such cases, false promises of actual or potential selection, or initiation or completion of the recruitment formalities appear to have been or are being made. Some jobseekers appear to have been asked to pay money to specified bank accounts of individuals or entities as a condition of their selection for a ‘job’ with Deloitte. These individuals or entities are in no way connected with Deloitte and do not represent or otherwise act on behalf of Deloitte.

We would like to clarify that:

  • At Deloitte, ethics and integrity are fundamental and not negotiable.
  • We are against corruption and neither offer bribes nor accept them, nor induce or permit any other party to make or receive bribes on our behalf.
  • We have not authorized any party or person to collect any money from jobseekers in any form whatsoever for promises of getting jobs in Deloitte.
  • We consider candidates on merit and that we provide an equal opportunity to eligible applicants.
  • No one other than designated Deloitte personnel (e.g., a Deloitte recruiter or Deloitte hiring partner) is permitted to extend any job offer from Deloitte.

Anyone who at any time has made or makes any payment to any party in exchange for promises of job or selection for a job with Deloitte or any matter related to this (including those for ‘registration’, ‘verification’ or ‘security deposit’) or otherwise engages with any such person who has made or makes fraudulent promises or offers, does so (or has done so) entirely at their own risk. Deloitte takes no responsibility or liability for any such unauthorized or fraudulent actions or engagements. We encourage jobseekers to exercise caution.
