The Role


We’re looking for a Software Engineer for our Cloud team. This role will help to design, build, and deploy web-facing applications that manage parallel Python (Dask) deployments in a cloud setting. You will work on the “full stack” of our applications: UI design, low-level networking, and everything in between.


This role will help shape our product roadmap with our founding team, and make decisions that change the direction of a young company.


Ideally you will have:

  • Experience designing and building production web applications using Python-based frameworks, preferably Django 2.0 or greater.
  • Experience deploying distributed applications on commercial cloud services.
  • Familiarity with software engineering best practices – including unit tests, code review, version control, production monitoring, etc.
  • Collaborative spirit and commitment to communicating well with colleagues in a remote environment as well as in-person.
  • Experience with modern web technologies: Javascript (ES6), CSS3, HTML5.
  • A preference for writing mature and maintainable software in Python.
  • Tolerance for writing immature, hacky, one-off software in Python.
  • We can teach you everything else (or learn about it together)!
  • Nice to have: Exposure to the Python data-science stack – Pandas, Numpy, Scikit-learn – and / or enterprise analytics tools like Spark, Flink, etc.

  • Please keep in mind that we are describing the background we imagine would best fit the role. Even if you don’t meet all of the requirements, yet you are confident that you are up for the task, we absolutely want to get to know you!


    Maybe this sounds great, but you’re not sure that you have enough experience. We encourage you to apply anyway. We’re happy to consider junior and senior candidates!
