Description

So, you want to be a Sr. Software Engineer here at TaskUs? Great, we’re looking for someone just like you; self-motivated and creative problem solvers, ready to build ridiculously cool applications and services on a global scale.  From API development to intuitive end-user web applications, you will have every opportunity to find your groove in the stack as we build out the production software and tools used by our teammates to deliver TaskUs clients with world-class machine learning data services. 

Imagine yourself going to work with one thing on your mind: I can’t wait to work with my team to deliver this new feature that will create true business value. You’ll be a key member of the team tasked with realizing our product roadmap by building out our suite of scalable, cloud-based applications and services.  Our ecosystem consists of custom in-house technology and best-of-breed partner solutions, which you will have an active role in selecting and extending. Your achievements will be measured not on lines of code output but rather on the delivery of meaningful features and the overall stability of the platform.

Bottom-line, you love developing production software with a small and agile team. Working as part of a team is critical to your happiness at work. Your team respects your excellent technical skills and looks to you to lead by example. Accountability is key, and you work hard to make sure you are clear in your commitments to your peers and other leaders within the company.

While developing great software is what you built your career on, you are passionate about making the world a better place. It’s important that your work benefits society.

  • Write production-ready code that can be easily maintained and unit tested.
  • Show patience, humility, and confidence when mentoring your colleagues.

  • Understanding of Machine Learning techniques and its underlying algorithms.
  • Experience with payment systems (both receipt and providing payment) and anti-fraud systems.
  • Experience working with third parties on data and system security.
  • Ability to work on the GMT+9 (JAPAN) time-zone hours initially with a possible partial return to office in Tokyo likely in 2022.
