Full time
Jellyfish is a Boston-area tech startup that is working with large software companies to build a platform that helps them transform how they measure their development efforts and improve strategic decision-making.

As an engineer at Jellyfish focusing on research and development, you will work with other engineers and data scientists to build innovative new products that leverage the unique data we are collecting about how software teams collaborate. You will have the opportunity to create systems and services that can turn raw data into rich insights and can make recommendations that impact how our customers understand their development teams and the software they build.

Most importantly, you will be part of a highly talented team working in a fun, challenging, and collaborative environment, building a company lead by experienced entrepreneurs and backed by top-tier investment partners.

Bonus points if:
