Job Description

Wingspan Technology is an innovative software company headquartered in Blue Bell, PA. The Wingspan engineering team is responsible for architecture, implementation, and maintenance of the company’s software products that target highly regulated industries, primarily life sciences.

Join our cutting-edge software development organization expanding all of its teams and creating new ones for both application and platform development.  Contribute to document management applications used by some of the largest regulated companies in the world.

Curious about how and where “highly regulated” meets “cutting-edge?” High-level details are available in this talk by the Wingspan CTO. Most importantly, our engineering practice does a great job of shielding software engineers from the perils and overhead common to the environment, and no skills specific to regulatory markets are required

Development Focus

Employees in this role lead the development of web-based applications using the Wingspan Document Management platform that uses React.js on the client and Scala-based RESTful services on the server. We use many other tools and libraries as well, many of which are listed below in the skills section.

Wingspan creates its HTML5 applications for all platforms, with mobile targets being tablets more than phones. Opportunities exist for developers to move across the stack within a product, or move into similar functional areas in other products on the platform, as needs and interest warrant.

Skills

Given the velocity of the technology field and the changing needs of the industries Wingspan serves, Wingspan interviews for general knowledge and ability to learn more than specific, existing knowledge. Knowledge of some of the technologies we use is a plus, but knowledge in similar technologies is often a worthy substitute.

That being said, here are some of the key technologies used by Wingspan to build our document management platform and applications.

  • Server: REST, Scala, SQL, Java
  • Client: JavaScript, React, HTML5, Less/CSS, Kendo UI, webpack
  • Database & Search: PostgreSQL, Solr
  • Build Automation: sbt, webpack, Bamboo
  • Tools & Infrastructure: JIRA, Crucible+Fisheye, git, nexus

Compensation

Wingspan offers competitive compensation packages including:

  • Premium health care plan
  • 401(k) with company match
  • 10 Paid Holidays, 2 Floating holidays
  • Vacation, 2 personal days, and unlimited sick days
  • Disability, Life insurance, and other benefits
