Reporting to the CTO, who believes in failing fast but fixing it faster, our Senior Software Engineer will build out the distributed training infrastructure on how we train AI machine learning models and architect solutions that are not limited by the number of computers or memory as the data scales up. We need a passionate coder who has used Spark, Hadoop, and Apache Bean; a Developer with distributed systems engineering experience who has successfully built systems that have scaled horizontally. This is a chance to build proofs-of-concept, evaluate technologies, and present recommendations to the leadership.

  • Collaborate with other teams such as the Machine Learning Engineers to find innovative solutions to challenges such as making the switch to distributed compute clusters.
  • Create CI/CD Pipelines and deploy our latest features.
  • Write Architecture, Design, and API Documentation.
  • Solve problems that baffle others such as how to create a service capable of capturing large volumes of streaming data while providing low-latency retrieval that can be deployed both in the cloud and at the edge.

Who you are

You are a Senior Software Engineer with design and architecture skills; a lifelong learner, who is open to new concepts. You have the hands-on knowledge to evaluate the need for new features and functionality; the initiative to take a leadership role to design and deploy those features; and the collaborative approach to mentor the team.

You are looking for new technical challenges and you want to leverage cloud technology to solve unique problems. You are fascinated by the chance to build systems capable of processing large data sets and work with real time streaming data and to change the face of the industrial sector.

Our new Senior Software Engineer has:

  • The education. You have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science; ideally, you have a Masters degree.
  • The experience. You have 5 years hands on development expertise and come with a set of broad and deep tools including Python, design, and architecture. You have practical experience scaling products and you are comfortable using open source distributed technologies such as Spark, Hadoop, and Beam.
  • The communications skills. You know how to listen and how to be heard. You know when to take the lead and mentor junior members. You know how to share best practices and initiate code reviews that result in high-quality, clean, and scalable code.
  • The innovation. You are a problem-solver who can balance urgency with long-term payoff. You are on a continuous search for new tools and improvements.
