You’ll be working with devs from data science, data engineering, backend, web and UX backgrounds to build Anna, an automated data scientist who is already beginning to transform how businesses use data. You’ll also be a huge advocate for Scala or Javascript best practices, mentoring the team and helping to get the most out of our stack. If Anna were a person you’d be her doctor, personal trainer, and nutritionist.

  • With strong programming skills in Javascript and/or Scala.
  • Who delights in building great interfaces for users in the front end and/or for developers in the back end.

  • Being involved in software and service architecture

About you:

You’re passionate, up to date on new technologies, and have really strong computer science and engineering fundamentals. You know when to obsess over details and when it’s time to ship. You love working in a team and helping others to grow with you. You’re someone who is laid-back and adaptable but wants to have an impact on the product you’re working on.

To be successful in this role you’ll also need to demonstrate the following:
