The Role:

We are looking for a Software Engineer with 3+ years of experience to join our growing team. As a full-stack developer, you are comfortable owning your features end-to-end. We value feedback highly and use qualitative (talking to users) and quantitative (metrics, A/B testing) data to determine what's most important, and then work quickly to ship those features on bi-weekly sprints. We’re a small team with a get-things-done attitude, so you’ll have lots of autonomy to create impact while tackling complex technical challenges. There will be an opportunity to grow into technical leadership roles as the company grows.

Our Tech:

  • We use an SOA architecture powered by many micro-services, including the bot platform, the NLP engine and the pricing/recommendation engines
  • Real-time bot platform using Node.js, Express, SocketIO and React / Redux
  • Recommendation and pricing engine using Python, Flask, Numpy, Scikit, Postgres and Redis

Your Experience:

  • You have at least 3 years of full-stack software development work experience, preferably with exposure to a dynamic, startup environment
  • You learn quickly, regardless of the languages and technologies used
  • You have experience taking ownership and shipping entire features end-to-end
  • You love solving complex problems with logical, well-reasoned solutions

The Perks:

  • Build something that matters, and contribute to building a product used by millions of users worldwide
  • Benefit from best-in-class salaries, equity stock options, a comprehensive benefits package with flexible Health Spending Account, and more
  • We work flexible schedules to allow for optimal work-life balance. As you start to grow your family, we have a generous Parental Leave Policy to support you as well!
  • In addition to collaborating with top global talent on lots of interesting projects, you'll also have fun working in a diverse, inclusive environment with constant support from both peers and leaders
