Job Description

Cambridge Semantics is seeking a highly skilled Java or Scala Engineer to join our engineering team as a technical lead. The successful candidate will be a seasoned Java and/or Scala professional with 5+ years of experience. As a leader, you'll help plan and define major new initiatives and work with a team of talented engineers to help bring them to reality. Familiarity with Apache Spark or another distribution framework is a strong plus, as this role will help build out our solutions for large-scale processing of data in distributed environments. This is an opportunity to join a world class team pioneering Web 3.0 semantic technologies.

 

Requirements:

  • Experience leading an engineering team, even if only in an informal capacity. You must be able to bring ideas to reality, managing hurdles along the way.
  • A passion for organizing software development projects from inception to launch, including making architectural decisions, considering effects on existing solutions, working with other developers, and keeping an eye on all the details.
  • This is still a hands on role — you'll be actively involved in developing software components and products for our enterprise platform using Java and Scala technologies.
  • Some experience with Hadoop, Apache Spark, MapReduce, or other distributed computing environments a strong plus.
  • Proven track record of writing high-quality, testable, maintainable, and well-documented code
  • Responsible for the detailed design documentation, development, unit testing, and maintenance of internally developed applications.
  • Object-oriented analysis and design skills.
  • Semantic Web technologies (RDF, OWL, SPARQL) not a prerequisite, but an advantage.
  • Self-disciplined with strong attention to detail.
  • Excellent written and oral communications.
  • Energetic and self-starting.

We cherish our fast-paced, startup environment that rewards pro-activeness and idea-sharing, and values flexibility and balance between work and home life. Our headquarters is located in a vibrant WeWork space in beautiful downtown Boston next to the Boston Common and is surrounded by endless lunch options and several different subway entrances.

An Insider's view of Cambridge Semantics

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We love sharing, helping, and lifting others. We are collaborative and passionate, so you can always find us in break-out rooms. We're busy, but we make time to eat lunch together or play ping pong to unwind. CSI is dynamic - from the challenging data problems we solve & our continuous stream of ideas, to the outings we bond at - its never dull!

Cindy

Customer Success Manager

What does your typical day look like?

It always starts with status calls from the offshore team. Then a round of tea. Some days its quiet focusing on the things in my queue, other days its brainstorming sessions to discuss the current tasks in the project. Of course there are breaks, such as when we have Birthday/Anniversary sweets. Each day is a learning experience and helps me grow.

Madhura

Senior Quality Assurance Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

There are amazing opportunities at Cambridge Semantics for growth and advancement. I feel like my potential is being recognized and my manager pushes me outside of my comfort zone.

Jessamin

VP of Field Operations

What makes someone successful on your team?

A successful CSI employee understands that their work has immediate business impact. High performing team members quickly develop personal accountability for the success of the product and customer.
