Job Description
We are seeking an outstanding engineering tech lead interested in building products that solve customer problems, ranging from back-end data processing and machine learning, to front end presentation and dashboarding. 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. Working with very strong colleagues, you will lead a team and help design and implement creative solutions to problems in microservice applications, data pipelining, distributed computing, large-scale computing, interactive-response-time processing, and system architecture.

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

Additional Information
This position is available in Cambridge. Tamr does sponsor employees requiring a visa.

An Insider's view of Tamr

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe at Tamr is, well, to take a line from Billy Eliot, it is like "electricity." Our open-office concept is dynamic, creative, friendly, and contagious, and everyone contributes fully and genuinely to the mission!

Emma

People Operations Associate

What does your typical day look like?

My typical day starts with setting the key items I am going to focus on/balls I am going to move ahead during the day. I tend to spend most of my days in meetings - collaborating, checking in with my team and building processes/work to support our growth. I end my day tending to email and other tasks that require less brain power.

Head of Growth

How does the company support your career growth?

Tamrs make introductions all the time, and it is normal and expected for people to be out of the office to meet with colleagues and connections in other companies. Both for recruiting and help with understanding how people in other companies have addressed technological and organizational challenges that come up.

What makes someone successful on your team?

The key to being successful is communicating. In the sales engineering team, we of course need to communicate quickly and often with customers. Just as important is being able to communicate with others in the team and in the company. Asking questions, getting feedback, and responding to others are all critical to being an effective team member.
