About the role

Engineers at Alloy contribute across the stack. On the frontend, you will work with a modern web stack, built with Typescript and React; on the backend, you will work in Java 8 and Python 3. There are no deep layers of management at Alloy; we're looking for self-starters who are able to prioritize effectively, and there is plenty of opportunity to grow quickly beyond an initial role.

Our customers rely on Alloy for tasks ranging from day-to-day decision making to strategic product portfolio planning. To make this possible, we work on modelling the supply chain, improving our forecasting algorithms, and building tools that facilitate planning, to mention a few examples. If this sounds exciting, you might be the engineer we’re looking for.

    • You enjoy understanding customer business needs and translating them into specifications or code.
    • You’re excited about using a wide set of technologies, ultimately focused on finding the right tool for the job.
    • You care deeply about best practices for code quality, automation, and testing.
    • You value open and respectful communication. We have three development offices in different time zones, all working on the same platform.
    • You have a genuine desire to help other engineers via mentorship, pairing, and code reviews.
    • You have experience in or are excited about learning one or more of the following: TypeScript, Java 8+, Postgres, Python 3, React, Redux, CSS3, Google Cloud Platform, Docker.

As a plus, you:

    • You have technical leadership experience, and are still hands-on.
    • You have experience in recruiting and interviewing engineering candidates.
    • You have domain expertise in building analytics or supply chain software.
    • You have experience with UX design.
