Your product team

You will work closely with product, design, and our customers on the Kuali Financials product. Customers use our Financials product to efficiently and effectively manage the complex accounting needs of higher education.


Who are you?

We’re looking for curious, enthusiastic, empathetic engineers to solve problems, execute on ideas, advocate for the customer, and contribute to a team culture built on trust and mutual respect. As a site reliability engineer here, you’ll have a significant impact on what we do and how we do it. You will enable our customers to have a delightful experience using our software through active management of the system and its infrastructure as well as direct contributions to product development.

We build and support systems using both Java, React and Go. We believe that great developers can always learn new tools. Above any specific tech stack, we’re looking for versatile developers — those who know when to think big and when to act small, and who are comfortable in both greenfield and refactoring projects.

We believe the best products are created by teams who represent a broad range of ideas and perspectives. We value employees with diverse backgrounds and experiences.

  • One or more of these technologies: MySql, Python, Java, Go, React
  • Incremental refactoring efforts
  • The Higher Education community

  • Top-of-the-line equipment of your choice to get your job done
  • A truly exceptional benefits package including full premium coverage for employee and dependent medical and dental care
