Software Engineer (Backend)

Software Engineer (Backend)

We are making tools to measure and increase a company's rate of innovation. One implementation of this idea will collect signals about a company's scale of innovation from public data sources such as the US Patent and Trademark Office. Another will take information from internal data sources, tying things like DevOps efficiency metrics to product usage, product performance, and business success. We have built early versions of these dashboards and are iterating on them before we make them more broadly accessible. The unifying theme of these solutions is to answer the question, "What is a given company's pace of innovation?"

As an early employee and part of our startup's core team, you will have a huge impact in shaping the tech stack, engineering practices, company culture, and hiring. We place a high value on a learner's mindset and the willingness to look at problems from a fresh perspective.

What you'll do:
  • Architect and build scalable backend services and data pipelines
  • Concept, test, and deploy independently - while being accountable for functionality, responsiveness, security and the quality of the code base
  • Write clean, efficient, well-tested, and documented code
  • Build and contribute to a high-performance engineering culture

What we're looking for:
  • 3 - 5 years working full-time as a backend engineer in Python (preferred) or Golang
  • Proven track record of launching effective solutions from ideation to production
  • Knowledge of modern software architecture, distributed systems, relational databases, and common data structures
  • Proficiency in managing infrastructure and deployment on a cloud services platform, such as AWS or GCP
  • Experience building REST APIs from scratch and developing robust, scalable integrations with third party data sources
  • Extensive experience with CI/CD tools, such as GitLab, Github, Circle CI, Jenkins or similar
  • Ability to deep dive into technical challenges and get in the weeds on solutions
  • Generalist skill set - you are open to working on many different software projects simultaneously

Our Tech Stack:
  • Frontend: React and TypeScript. We design in Figma and are using a Material UI component library.
  • Backend: Python3 (Flask framework) and Postgres, both hosted on AWS. Our backend communicates to the frontend using a REST API.

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your dependents
  • Market competitive salary and stock opportunities
  • Work anywhere! Remote friendly work environment
  • Unlimited paid time off
  • Professional development opportunities, mentorship, and L&D resources

Hiring Process:
  • Application reviewed by our hiring team
  • Screening call with our talent acquisition team
  • Interview with the hiring manager
  • A short take home exercise
  • Final interviews with our leadership team
  • Offer!
