ABout Team

The Workflow Platform team at Parametric:

  • The primary focus is on developing a highly resilient and scalable Business Process Orchestration Platform on the AWS cloud. This platform provides a unified system for defining, implementing, monitoring, controlling, and optimizing all business processes within the firm.
  • Utilizing NoSQL databases, Spring Boot, Java, Python, React, and AWS native applications such as S3, AWS Lambda, AWS ECS/EKS for Docker container orchestration, ElastiCache, DynamoDB, etc.
  • The main goal is to create a platform centered around self-service, enabling non-engineers and citizen developers to engage in the entire lifecycle of building and managing workflows. This is achieved with the same level of SDLC control that a typical engineer would follow, but it remains mostly transparent to the users.


The Senior Software Engineer will be responsible for the design and development of the firm's strategic Business Process Orchestration, also known as the Workflow Platform. This role requires a solid engineering foundation, a product development mindset, solution architect's mindset, and an approach to building general-purpose and self-service platforms. It also necessitates extensive interaction and communication, coordinating and leading a federated community of citizen developers across the firm for its adoption.
