**Company Information: **
Agiloft is profitable, debt-free and growing rapidly. The breakthrough we made is that the software can be configured to meet the needs of clients that range from Chevron and NEC to tiny startups, writing a line of code. Everything is done through a wizard-based customization interface using a standard browser.
Rather like the Mac OS, it has taken a lot of sophisticated code to make things easy for the user.
You will join the team responsible for developing enhancements to the core functionality and integrating with other systems.
