Job Description

Wingspan Technology is an innovative software company headquartered in Blue Bell, PA. The Wingspan engineering team is responsible for architecture, implementation, and maintenance of the company’s software products that target highly regulated industries, primarily life sciences.

Join our cutting-edge software development organization expanding all of its teams and creating new ones for both application and platform development. Contribute to document management applications used by some of the largest regulated companies in the world.

Curious about how and where “highly regulated” meets “cutting-edge?” High-level details are available in this talk by the Wingspan CTO. Most importantly, our engineering practice does a great job of shielding software engineers from the perils and overhead common to the environment, and no skills specific to regulatory markets are required.

Development Focus

Candidates for this role will evaluate, develop, and improve Wingspan’s usage of search technologies through the entire technology stack, across all applications. Wingspan’s indexing and search technologies incorporate document content, document metadata, security rules and other elements at large scale.

In addition to direct software engineering responsibilities, this role will also:

  • Assist in architecture of a robust NOSQL search solution for a high volume document management system.
  • Work with operations and support teams to improve monitoring, stability, and resource utilization
  • Assist business analysts in developing requirements
  • Tune search quality

Wingspan creates its HTML5 applications for all platforms, with mobile targets being tablets more than phones. Opportunities exist for developers to move across the stack within a product, or move into similar functional areas in other products on the platform, as needs and interest warrant.

Experience Requirement

This position requires 5+ years of experience as a software engineer with specific expertise in search technologies (preferably Solr and/or ElasticSearch).


Given the velocity of the technology field and the changing needs of the industries Wingspan serves, Wingspan interviews for general knowledge and ability to learn more than specific, existing knowledge. Knowledge of some of the technologies we use is a plus, but knowledge in similar technologies is often a worthy substitute.

That being said, here are some of the key technologies used by Wingspan to build our document management platform and applications.

  • Server: Scala, SQL, Java
  • Database & Search: SQL (PostGres, MySQL), ElasticSearch and/or Solr
  • Tools & Infrastructure: CentOS, Tomcat, Splunk


Wingspan offers competitive compensation packages including:

  • Premium health care plan
  • 401(k) with company match
  • 10 Paid Holidays, 2 Floating holidays
  • Vacation, 2 personal days, and unlimited sick days
  • Disability, Life insurance, and other benefits
