Senior Java Engineer

Comcast - Philadelphia, PA

Comcast’s Technology, Product & Experience organization works at the intersection of media and technology. Our innovative teams are continually developing and delivering products that transform the customer experience. From creating apps like TVGo to new features such as the Talking Guide on the X1 platform, we work every day to make a positive impact through innovation in the pursuit of building amazing products that are enjoyable, easy to use and accessible across all platforms. The team also develops and supports our evolving network architecture, including next-generation consumer systems and technologies, infrastructure and engineering, network integration and management tools, and technical standards. We offer a flexible working environment to balance the need to work independently wherever you choose, with days that require collaboration at one of our offices. Our roles primarily reside inside or around one of our Tech Hubs (Philadelphia and surrounding suburbs, Denver, Austin, Silicon Valley, Washington DC/N. Virginia). Some roles can work virtual full-time if they are not near a Tech Hub, but that is dependent upon the needs of the position and amount of collaboration required.


Job Summary

Comcast’s Connected Living organization is seeking a Senior Software Engineer to join our Internet Safety platform team. Our group manages a middleware for the family settings and digital security features of the Xfinity app. The team operates in an agile fashion and maintains its own infrastructure, deployment, and operations.

Job Description

As a senior engineer on the team, you will collaborate with designers, testers, product managers, and other developers across the organization. While the primary responsibilities are focused on the enhancement of existing Xfinity features and building new services, you will also have opportunities to contribute to all aspects of the product lifecycle. The ideal candidate can articulate what they have learned from past engineering experiences, whether it was operating a web service at scale or solving a problem for an audience of one.

How we work:

  • We value usable and working solutions now over a perfect solution later.
  • We believe in researching established solutions and applying best practices.
  • We value diversity of opinion over group consensus.
  • We actively seek out and embrace honest feedback.
  • We value building it right over building it fast.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • At least 5 years experience building software applications using Java and/or JavaScript. Our team develops services in Java (with Spring Boot) and in TypeScript (run on Node.js).
  • Excellent collaboration and communication skills. Examples include effectively leading team discussions to reach a decision, identifying and documenting product requirements accurately, and appropriately informing stakeholders of relevant information.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills that can be applied in a variety of contexts, from triaging bug reports to designing solutions for new feature requirements.
  • Experience with RESTful web services, micro-services, and/or event-driven platforms.
  • Experience designing services for scalability, performance, and reliability.
  • Familiarity with Amazon Web Services. Our team mainly uses Lambda, ECS Fargate, CloudWatch, SNS/SQS, and DynamoDB and occasionally interacts with other AWS products.
  • Experience with continuous integration and continuous development processes.
  • Familiarity with Agile development methodologies and software engineering practices.
  • Working knowledge of tools and applications like Git, GitHub, JIRA, and Slack.

This role is the perfect fit for someone who has:

  • A passion for code quality and following best practices.
  • A habit of seeing the big picture while completing work on a single component.
  • The desire to work on a collaborative team where every opinion is valued.

Connected Living Engineers are passionate about teamwork, developing our skills, and creating awesome experiences for customers. We are fortunate to do what we love, every day. Join us!

Employees at all levels are expected to:

  • Understand our Operating Principles; make them the guidelines for how you do your job.

  • Own the customer experience - think and act in ways that put our customers first, give them seamless digital options at every touchpoint, and make them promoters of our products and services.

  • Know your stuff - be enthusiastic learners, users and advocates of our game-changing technology, products and services, especially our digital tools and experiences.

  • Win as a team - make big things happen by working together and being open to new ideas.

  • Be an active part of the Net Promoter System - a way of working that brings more employee and customer feedback into the company - by joining huddles, making call backs and helping us elevate opportunities to do better for our customers.

  • Drive results and growth.

  • Respect and promote inclusion & diversity.

  • Do what's right for each other, our customers, investors and our communities.
