We’d love to see:


  • BS in technology or engineering field, or equivalent experience
  • 4+ years software development experience programming in Java
  • Experience developing at the "data layer" (we're not too concerned with specific tech, since we integrate with and use it all - just that you have a level of experience building software that works with databases. We can teach the specifics and the right person will be open to learn!)
  • Ability to use innovative analytical approaches to proactively solve a broad range of problems across technologies.
  • Ability to translate business requirements into a technical design that can be understood and implemented by a cross functional team
  • Experience working in a continuous deployment organization with multiple deployments each week is a plus

  • Experience creating and maintaining technical documentation
  • Contribute to internal knowledge of best practices in emerging technology


Big pluses include:


  • Experience in Web Services Design, Testing, and Implementation
  • Semantic Web (RDF/SPARQL) experience
  • Experience with graph databases
  • Experience with Elasticsearch
  • Experience writing language parsers (we use a Scala combinator parser, but any parser experience is a bonus)
  • Experience developing in the AWS ecosystem


Perks and benefits:


  • The usual suspects: market compensation with a generous bonus structure, health/dental/vision insurance
  • Not so usual suspects: education credits, charitable donation matching to the organization of your choice, and event ticket giveaways
  • Catered lunch 4x per week, all the snacks, coffee, Yerba Mate, and beer you can handle
  • Regularly scheduled team events including game nights, rock climbing, and cocktail competitions
  • A flexible work environment with an understanding that employees are people with lives outside of the office
  • A tight-knit team of startup veterans with integrity, passion, and curiosity for days


If you have the exceptional combination of skills and qualities that we are looking for, then we’re excited to meet you!
