Server Developer (Java)
at ForeFlight

ForeFlight is looking for a software developer to join our Server/API team in Houston. This position is for a technically well-rounded individual with experience in Java server-side web and enterprise app development that will have responsibilities for developing server-side features and APIs to support our mobile apps. Experience with weather products and APIs (aviation or otherwise), aggregation of data / mashups, and aviation in general are a big plus.


Technically, this person must have experience with Java programming, including use of one or more frameworks, search, and web services (RESTful, binary, and/or XML based). This person believes building applications in the cloud is cake. This person is naturally curious, exploring new technologies in order to stay current, but balances the use of new and old to ensure that execution is priority.


Professionally, this person is driven to execute, deliver, and complete projects independently, seeking advice and direction from team members when needed, and plowing ahead to completion when the path forward is clear.  Junior candidates and recent CS grads are encouraged to apply.


This position is based in our Houston, TX office. A pilot-coder, or individual looking to pursue his or her private pilot license, is a plus. Benefits include medical insurance, 401K with matching, and flight training reimbursement. Relocation reimbursement will be provided if moving to Houston.
