We are seeking a Software Engineer - Research and Discovery for our Lexington, MA office.

Job Summary:

We’re looking for a Software Engineer to join our Research and Discovery team, which is a part of our Engineering group.  This innovation-focused team is responsible for early evaluation of potential technologies and their application to all our solutions, with a focus on our leading healthcare identity and access management platform.

  • Document, share and update findings, based on input from other technical resources

  • Write code that ranges from early proof-of-concept to the stage just prior to handoff to core Engineering delivery teams

  • Develop full-stack cloud and on-premises application functionality within a dynamic agile scrum environment

  • Remain aware of leading-edge technology developments that may be applicable to our space. Attend relevant conferences, vendor meetings, and customer events


  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related discipline

  • 2-3+ years of software development experience

  • Excellent written and verbal communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills with the ability to effectively interact with both internal teams and external customers and partners
