We’re looking for engineers with broad and deep skill sets and experiences to help move us forward. We want self-starters who will bring distinctive expertise but who are excited to step outside their comfort zone and learn new skills. If you’re eager to pick up new languages, paradigms, and technologies, we want to talk.
Our engineers are expected to wear a number of hats and have the opportunity to touch all parts of the stack. As an engineer, you will work to improve our optimization algorithms, write Spark code, participate in architectural decisions for new components, or improve performance in collaboration with DevOps. In the same week, you could work on user- facing interfaces and reports with frontend developers, write code to import, process and QC terabytes of new data, and work with analysts and statisticians to ensure the validity of our processes.

Experience with at least one web framework (e.g. Ruby/Rails, Python/Django) and solid understanding of the MVC design pattern.
Experience writing unit and functional tests.
Comfort with version control systems (e.g. Git, SVN).

Master’s in Computer Science or a related field.
Basic understanding of statistics and experience with statistical packages such as R, Matlab, SPSS, etc.
