As a Senior Backend Engineer You Will Be:

    • Wrapping ML modules in reusable application components, which can be integrated in different configurations depending on the specific customer’s needs.
    • Leveraging your systems knowledge to deliver fast and scalable software, starting from the design of the system through development and extension.
    • Designing easy-to-use programmer interfaces and tools that will be leveraged by other developers, including APIs for our clients' developers.
    • Creatively solving problems even when the initial answer is unclear.
    • Helping improve our code quality by writing unit tests and performing thorough code reviews.

Desired Experience:

    • Degree in Computer Science or related engineering field, or equivalent practical experience.
    • Minimum 3 years of experience solving backend software engineering problems.
    • Experience in building web-scale and/or enterprise-grade systems in different environments.
    • Strong ability to reason about data structures, complexity, and possible engineering approaches to a problem.
    • Experience with Python / Django is preferred, but experience with any mainstream language and framework is required.

    • You will learn the product and will make your first significant, user-impacting contributions to one of our products.

    • Within your first quarter and beyond:
    • You will be an integral part of the team and a driven, focused self-starter who can navigate a certain amount of ambiguity, and who is not afraid to take a sizable chunk of functionality, analyze it, break it down, implement it and then assume ownership and responsibility over it.
    • You will be taking an active role in discussions about possible solutions, different approaches, API designs and more.
