Qualio’s SAAS platform takes the pain out of compliance and helps life science organizations accelerate their time to market. Our engineering team is growing quickly as more and more customers adopt our product. We are seeking a senior technical leader to bring expertise and experience to our team.

What is the opportunity?

We are hiring a Principal Software Engineer in Ireland to join our distributed software development team. We’re looking for someone who has technical thought leadership and wants to play a pivotal role in Qualio’s future. This opportunity will suit someone who is based in Ireland but is comfortable working with geographically distributed colleagues.

What will I be doing?

As an accomplished software leader, you will play a key role in determining Qualio’s future technical direction.

  • Up to speed on core technologies and the Qualio software development life-cycle.
  • Familiar with Qualio’s features, architecture, and infrastructure and areas for growth
  • Understand the key strategy of the company and what value we are delivering to customers and begin to translate ambiguous business problems into actionable technical proposals.
  • Delivering through others - supporting the software development team with architecture, technology, and infrastructure decisions.

  • You enjoy taking the lead on projects and owning them from inception to delivery.

  • Past experience in mentoring others, accelerating their technical career development and critically reviewing their work.
  • Play a key role in identifying areas where we need to hire in new talent and actively participate in attracting and retaining talent.
