Requirements:

  • You have experience developing and delivering compelling web based front end applications that are intuitive to end users, yet can scale.
  • You have shown people management and leadership skills, and a consistent record of mentoring and coaching team members.
  • You have experience or a strong interest in using machine learning techniques to improve outcomes of a given software system.

What We Offer You:

  • A constant stream of new things for you to learn. We're always expanding into new areas, bringing in open source projects and giving back, and exploring new technologies.
  • A set of exceptionally talented and dedicated peers, all the way from engineering and QA to product management and customer support.
  • A stable, reciprocal and encouraging work environment.
