Javascript Engineer

Engineering
Full-time

As a platform that helps companies all over the world extract knowledge from their data, AtScale's browser-based application must enable customers to manage their engines, define data structures, monitor query activity, understand their underlying data, configure users, roles and permissions, and deploy definition updates to be leveraged by hundreds or even thousands of data consumers. AtScale's Javascript Engineers work on all the business logic and systems for all of that. As a Javascript Engineer, you will build and expand the interfaces, logic and features of our browser-based application for managing the AtScale engine.

Javascript plays a pivotal role in AtScale, and in that role you'll be making decisions that impact how people fundamentally use AtScale. You'll work with our other Javascript Engineers and our UI/UX team to create delightful interfaces that enable our users and expand the capabilities of our system. You'll also work with our engine team to expose new engine functionality to users.

We're looking for people with a strong background in Javascript. You've built Javascript applications, you've worked extensively with Node, and you're interested in thinking creatively to solve problems which have not been solved before.

Our ideal candidate...

    • ...has written entire applications in Javascript, likely using Node
    • ...is very skilled in their knowledge of Javascript and doesn't have to only rely on libraries or frameworks
    • ...is excited about using ES6, ES7, and has the desire to continually evolve their knowledge of the language
    • ...loves solving new problems that don't have "off the shelf" solutions
    • ...has at least 3 years experience deploying Javascript to a commercial production environment

What's it like to work at AtScale?

AtScale is helping the world access its data. The Big Data Revolution allowed businesses to store a near-infinite amount of data, but accessing that data was slow and painful. Existing tools meant to visualize data weren't prepared to work with these new technologies. AtScale aims to make it fast and easy to access all your data.

AtScale is fundamentally an engineering company. AtScale solves unanswered questions every day, and therefore hires people from a multitude of technical backgrounds who can think creatively and handle some of the most challenging problems facing the modern big data landscape. From accessing billions or even trillions of rows of data in mere seconds, to working with a wide array of frequently changing big data technologies, to working with some of the most active and exciting branches of technology development in the industry, AtScale engineers are used to solving problems which simply have not been solved before.

We shape AtScale to be the kind of company we've always wanted to work at - a company of warm, inclusive and inquisitive people who treat their colleagues with respect and equality. Engineers are given tremendous autonomy and authority over their work. We value throughput over predictability. Our engineers freely work alongside other teams, including sales and support when the need arises. Our engineers have the opportunity to work directly with our customers, which we believe equips them with the best possible understanding of our customer's needs.

In both our product and our culture, we aim to create a more open, connected and knowledgable world.
