  • Deep understanding of big data challenges and ecosystems
  • Working understanding of container technologies such as Docker
  • Familiarity with agile development methodologies

  • Experience in test automation and ensuring data quality across multiple datasets used for analytical purposes
  • Comfortable working as both part of a high-performing, diverse team and as an independent performer

Derek

Talent Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I begin the day with some team meetings. In the middle of the day, I spend as much time as I can at my desk coding and discussing technical stuff (that’s the technical term) with colleagues or video chat meetings. Later in the day, I might present at or attend architectural meetings to more broadly discuss concepts related to the work I’m doing.

Jimmy

Sr. Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I enjoy a lot of things including that I am always learning, there are so many intelligent people here from different backgrounds that are fascinating to me. There is a deep sense of collaboration across different functional areas. I work with engineers, product, and behavioral science connect the dots to which brings Cogito to life.

By driving growth for Cogito – In marketing we are doing that in a number of different ways. We make the Cogito brand recognizable and synonymous with technology. We publicly celebrate the success of our customers, and generate demand through campaigns and programs. Additionally, we enable sales with tools and content that drive interest.

Steve

VP of Marketing

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Collaborative, in the sense that it is an open space, you can stand up and talk to the person in front of you, you can look to your lef or right and talk to your team members. When you are working on projects you have to at least work with one or two people from another department and so you just get another perspective on things.
