About the Role

Our products include Python libraries for building exceptional interactive web applications and data visualizations, low-code development tools and IDEs to aid the software development process, data connectivity features to aid the data science and data pipeline process, and an application deployment platform to easily bring applications into production in enterprise environments.

We aim to radically simplify the software development process, rethinking the way web applications are developed and deployed. Our customers are extraordinary data scientists in large companies with stringent data access and enterprise IT requirements. Typically, building enterprise-grade internal tooling would take our customers months to years. With Dash Enterprise, data scientists can build and deploy apps in hours to days.

Duties & Responsibilities:

Ideation - Develop new ideas for product features in the near and long term

Pitch Development - Develop ideas into well-defined product specifications (“pitches”) that can be delivered to an engineering team

Possibly a stupid question, but does that mean you want someone who lives in Canada, but accept that it may not be in Montreal?
I’m interested but live in the UK (and have no plan to move outside of Europe…)

Hello Wabiloo - Yes, as of now we are looking to hire somebody who lives in Canada, and can be located anywhere in Canada. Does not have to be in Montreal. We did open our UK office this year. Can you send me your resume to srini@plot.ly I can share your resume and check with the hiring manager if they are open to hiring in UK for this role.
