Hi, we’re Nexthink. We’re not just the leader in the digital employee experience category, we invented the category. Our solutions combine real-time analytics, automation and employee feedback across all endpoints to help IT teams delight people at work. Our cloud-native platform pinpoints issues and solutions, automates response, and helps companies continuously improve their employees’ experience, making them more productive, efficient, and happy at work. We have millions of endpoints deployed, we’ve surpassed $100M in ARR, and we’ve recently secured $180M in Series D financing for a company valuation of $1.1B, but we’re just getting started. 

Job Description

The Data Platform plays a critical role in Nexthink’s cloud-native multi-tenant products. It ingests, aggregates, and processes events collected from millions of endpoints every second, and stores and serves these enriched data to all Nexthink services.

Join a small team of diverse and experienced engineers that is responsible for helping drive, develop, and evolve the overall architecture of the endpoint and platform foundations, and which has ownership of the common frameworks and tooling used by the Data Platform.

Collaborate with the endpoint and platform teams to establish best practices for service and protocol design, and work together with Product Managers, Security and Cloud Operations teams in building a world-class cloud platform with modern technologies and principles.

We’re not all there yet, but we have already started the journey, and if this sounds challenging and interesting to you, we’d love to have you with us!

As a Platform Software Engineer, you will:

  • Define and grow the overall architecture of the data platform and its pipelines, in collaboration with the other platform Tech Leads and Architects
  • Co-ordinate the design of features that span platform and adjacent teams (endpoint to back-end), and the interfaces between these cross-team components
  • Research, develop and support platform-level shared components, frameworks, and features
  • Establish and help teams adopt best practices for delivering cloud-native services
  • Work closely with Endpoint teams on component and protocol architecture and design
  • Work with an agile, iterative and incremental mindset 
  • Drive complex projects with minimal oversight 


  • 5+ years of experience in software development, ideally on a platform team
  • Strong experience with scalable software architecture: microservices, APIs (e.g.: REST, GraphQL, gRPC), container deployment (e.g.: Docker, Kubernetes, Istio) and messaging architectures (e.g. Kafka)
  • Passion for and experience in building resilient, secure, and scalable services
  • Experience with public cloud providers (e.g. AWS), especially with multi-tenant architectures
  • Solid knowledge of core Java features
  • Good knowledge of C++/Python (other programming languages are a plus)
  • Experience with operating systems programming is a plus (Windows, macOS, Linux)
  • Experience with relational (Postgres) or NoSQL data stores
  • Familiarity with Jenkins, Git, Gradle, and with configuration management systems like Terraform/Ansible
  • Excellent communication and teamwork skills
  • Professional-level English, spoken and written
