We are a tight knit but rapidly growing team where you can have immediate meaningful impact.

The data science community is diverse in skill set, what they are trying to accomplish, and their preferences for tools and workflows. We’re looking for someone that can help us pull together our toolset in a way that smoothly serves the needs of users, starting with those who are doing basic exploratory data analysis, through those building sophisticated interactive data applications. Building beautiful, highly performant UI that serves a diverse range of users and use cases isn’t easy. You will be energized by this challenge and recognize that there are lots of fun and interesting technical problems to solve.

Technologies you will work with:

We work with a modern technology stack that includes Go, JavaScript, TypeScript, React, and NextJS, and of course we love Python. We use Kubernetes to orchestrate our infrastructure products, and we deliver those products and solutions across all major cloud providers, both at the consumer level, and to the most demanding enterprise customers. We make ongoing significant contributions to the open source community. Our open source libraries and frameworks are downloaded all across the globe by tens of millions of users every month.

  • 7+ years experience in professional software development, ideally some of which you’ve spent in dynamic early stage companies
  • Experience owning technically challenging and demanding cross-functional projects, and bringing those projects from concept to completion
  • Experience across the entire stack, from backend to frontend (we know you will probably have a preference, and we definitely want to hear it)
  • Ability to make technical decisions quickly, while collaborating with key stakeholders
  • Ability to self direct and work effectively in a fully remote work environment
