San Francisco
Engineering
Full-time

Node is working on a very technically challenging vision to reorganize the information on the web around context that is meaningful for people and companies, as Tim Berners Lee hoped for as the next big paradigm of the web. We have an opening for a senior level engineer who is entrepreneurial and passionate about leveraging big data and search technologies (e.g Hadoop, Elastic Search, Spark, Natural Language Processing, Web Crawling) to build out a unique product that will transform how businesses are able to analyze relationships in their network to uncover new opportunities.

We're looking for fast learners who can get their hands dirty, quickly; who know when to duct tape and when to have 100% test coverage (think like a hacker, ship like a pro); who don't mind being wrong occasionally; and who are intrigued by the overall space we're in. You'd be foundational member of our growing engineering team and have a significant opportunity to influence our culture and growth, as well as immense impact on the product itself.

RESPONSIBILITIES:
Execute full life cycle software development in a team setting
Help build and scale our internal and external Python APIs
Investigate and debug performance and reliability issues across the stack
Integrate software components into a fully functional software system
REQUIREMENTS:
B.S. or equivalent in Computer Science or another technical field
At least 4 years of software engineering experience 
At least 2 years of experience in the field of distributed systems
Excellent knowledge of relational databases (i.e. MySQL, Postgres)
Exceptional coding skills in Java, Scala, Python or other languages
ADDITIONAL DESIRED SKILLS:
Experience with information retrieval a huge plus
Experience working in the Amazon Web Services ecosystem
Non-relational data stores experience (i.e. Cassandra, Redis)


Node has raised $7.5M to date and is working with enterprise customers on the market with 100% customer retention, average deal size in the six figures with annual and two year contracts. We have big companies that have approached us and we're in a position to 5x our customers in the next 18 months.

The Node data intelligence layer powers proactive and personalized recommendations, helping the B2B world understand the people and companies that matter most for their business. We’re a team of former Googler, Facebook, and Microsoft data engineers and PHDs backed by Mark Cuban, New Enterprise Associates (NEA), Avalon Ventures and Canaan Partners.
