We're bringing modern technology to enterprise robotic process automation (RPA), software that allows folks to automate virtually any rule-based set of actions on computers. We've seen automation products take plenty of forms over the last decade, but for RPA in particular, the past year has been like none other. Budget cuts and labor shortages are leaving many businesses sorely understaffed, and, for many, automation has categorically shifted from an option to a necessity.
Prefix is an incredibly young company, but is quickly finding deep roots in various government organizations and emerging technology companies.
Advance a robust, high-concurrency automation orchestration platform. Basic understanding of RPA engineering workflows and deep experience developing highly scalable back-ends in Java required, any familiarity with Electron and Node.js preferred.
We seek to be the last automation solution for our customers and place an incredibly heavy priority on user experience and platform scalability. Some of our more fascinating challenges include:
- Orchestrating automations with both browser and desktop actions
- Tracing errors in automations to specific, plausible points of failure, and producing errors non-experts can interpret
- Building extensibility into the platform (customers should be able to modify/customize their automation editors internally)
- Intelligently monitoring desktops to automatically identify opportunities for automation within a business
Due to the expansive nature of our work, we make use of a wide variety of programming languages. Evidenced expertise in electron application development, front-end development in Vue.js, browser test automation in Node.js, desktop automation, or scalable back-end development in Java is strongly preferred. Involvement with (or at minimum cursory knowledge of) RPA or process management also a huge plus.
