Senior Engineer, Platform

Washington, DC /
Engineering – Platform /
Stardog, the leading Enterprise Knowledge Graph platform, turns data into knowledge to power more effective digital transformations. Industry leaders including Bayer, Bosch, eBay, NASA, and Raytheon use Stardog to create a flexible data layer that can support countless applications. One of Fast Company's prestigious Most Innovative Companies, Stardog is a fast-growing venture-backed company headquartered in Arlington, VA with a globally distributed team.

As a Senior Engineer on the Platform team you will be working in the heart of Stardog. In addition to working across the variety of components that make up the platform, from the database server to the query engine, you will take ownership of part of the system and help guide the future of the codebase.

We expect you to have 7 or more years of prior programming experience, ideally in Java as most of Stardog is written using the Java language; C++ is a nice bonus. 

While we would love to see a Computer Science, Software Engineering or related degree, we simply want good engineers who will work hard to solve interesting problems. Solid knowledge of data structures, algorithms and software design and a dedication to the craft is all that's really required.

You will be a part of a distributed team, so prior experience working with a remote team is a huge plus.

And if you've had previous experience with graph-based technologies, in particular, the semantic technology stack, that's fantastic! If not, we'll welcome you to the world of graph, and the future of enterprise data management.
Our culture is based on engineering excellence, mutual respect, collegiality in all things, rigor in design, research, implementation, and testing. We care deeply about work-life balance and productivity in the short and long run. In sum, if you remove the unnecessary, the distracting, and the tedious, what you're left with is a healthy 40 hour week full of wins.
