The candidate should be heavily motivated by both the product and technology stack. This is a unique opportunity to design, build, and operate distributed systems at scale.

Inside the Nexthink Engineering department, the team you will be joining is called Phoenix – you will work on Act, a powerful component that combines custom data retrieval and remediation capabilities to deliver dramatic results in the area of compliance and incident management.
