This is an opportunity to build enterprise software that solves the most time-consuming, manually intensive problem in data science: enriching, curating, and preparing data.

This job might be a good fit for you if you have:

  • Experience managing a team of 5-10 engineers
  • Strong experience in Java
  • Strong computer science fundamentals
  • Experience with test-driven development and an approach to software engineering that values design work and review before coding, along with careful testing
  • Background in building, maintaining, and shipping sophisticated enterprise software systems through multiple release cycles, especially through upgrades and changes to APIs and data formats
  • Excellent problem-solving skills
  • Experience with Javascript, RDBMS, REST and related technologies
  • A willingness to dive in and figure out what needs to be done along with a collaborative working style.
  • Experience in an agile environment and a rapidly expanding product market
