We inspire, challenge and respect every one of our over 100,000 employees. We also provide them with unparalleled growth and development opportunities. We can’t wait for you to discover this for yourself as a Senior Principal Software Engineer on our Dell Boomi team.

Dell Boomi is expanding our team with our newest location in Cambridge, MA.

Our methodology is about continuous improvement, in both development and innovation, and our culture is empowering. Our 500+ employees worldwide subscribe to a culture of collaboration. We make a point to bring empathy to each and every project, and are guided by a purposeful mission—to transform how the world integrates solutions.  

At Dell Boomi, we transform how the world performs application integrations, and we are opinionated about how software should be built. We work hard to deliver powerful, intuitive capabilities so customers can drastically accelerate their time to value. Our engineers work in an agile environment on small teams, but feel empowered to collaborate with the entire organization.
We believe in working at a sustainable pace – you’ll typically code hard for 8 hours each day, but then you’re off work to relax, recharge, and refocus. Twice a year we switch gears and get working on Project Greenlight.  A week-long Hack-a-Thon where Boomi engineers work on innovative projects of their own design with awards ranging from “Most Innovative” to “Most Likely to be Released to Production”.  If you can imagine it, then you can build it.

The Principal Software Engineer love shipping features, but know that well factored code is what lets you keep shipping features in the long run and you get antsy writing code without tests, or perhaps you’re a large-scale system operator interested in leveling-up your coding skills.  You refuse to take short-cuts and are vocal when you see a better way to solve a problem. Either way, you judge your success by the success of your team; you are interested in learning about integration platform as a service (iPaas) and you are excited to work collaboratively on cutting edge technology.  In the end, you understand that it’s not about delivering code, but about delivering solutions.
