Our Firm



Lead Software Engineer


Cvent | Technology | Dallas, TX

Do you like building great products that are feature rich and essential to users' day to day lives?

Do you think nothing is worth doing if it can’t be done at scale?

Do you want to use cutting-edge technologies on products that are used by tens of thousands of people every day?

Do you want to work for a company that is 20% bigger than its largest competitors yet still continues to grow and innovate consistently?

If you answered yes to all the above, then you belong at Cvent!

We are looking for Lead Software Engineers to join our growing Business Transient Cloud product line. We are currently engaged in a major initiative to build our next generation software platform with horizontally scalable Java microservices, AWS, Couchbase, and S3.  As a Lead Software Engineer, you'll play a critical role in the success of the Business Transient Cloud by helping us build a system capable of handling registration for the world’s largest conferences.

We build our services in Dropwizard (Java), deploy them to AWS (ECS specifically), store their data in Couchbase and S3, and use RabbitMQ when we want to go asynchronous. CI jobs (built in Jenkins) push merged pull requests straight to our test region, no manual deployment required.

You'll get the best of both worlds at Cvent – working with cutting edge technologies, but on real products used every day by a wide user base, not just prototypes.

What You Need for this Position:

For this particular role, we’re looking for individuals that can produce complex, high-quality software and work in a team environment. 

Aside from that, the prerequisites for joining our development team are simple. We care more about your attitude and aptitude than the specific tools and technologies you have used in the past. You need to have a strong passion for software development and must take pride in the code you produce. You should also have great analytical skills and ability to handle complex, modular software development in a collaborative team-based environment.  


  • 7+ years of software engineering experience preferably with Java
  • 1+ year in leading an Agile Sprint team
  • Experience designing and developing RESTful APIs at scale
  • Solid javascript background, ideally with angular.js or react.js
  • NoSQL experience with ElasticSearch or CouchDB would be ideal, but not required
  • Experience in migrating a large legacy code base to a more modern tech stack would make a candidate stand out 
  • "Big Picture" Mentality with an appeciation for the small details
  • Aspirations to become a Principal Engineer or Architect over the next two to three years

Cvent offers a fun, collegial work environment tailored to sharpening your technical skills and growing as a software professional. While we have evolved from startup to mid-sized company, our Technology Team has preserved an entrepreneurial and merit-driven culture where meaningful initiative and contribution are recognized and rewarded.
