We present those analytics through a sophisticated, dynamic user interface which enables our clients to find answers to their most important questions.
The role you'll play:
As a Software Engineer at CB Insights you will be part of a cross-disciplinary, self-motivated team with clear ownership and passion to form the future. Our crew uses state-of-the-art technologies and writes quality code that ships often.
Our data software engineers build scalable data pipelines and big data processing systems that runs on AWS cloud We focus on modularity and reuse where it makes sense, while ensuring that there are no constraints to delivering world-class software continuously.
Much of our software team has been with us for several years, despite a white-hot tech market with options galore. We attribute this to our collaborative, “teach and learn” culture where the role evolves with your interests.
About the team:
This team is one of the primary data engineering and core systems engineering teams at CBI. This means we get to work on a variety of interesting projects including scaling up our data processing pipelines and building out our microservices as well as improving internal developer tooling. We work autonomously, and own many of the core components that power the CBI platform and so our work has a big impact for our clients and for our long term vision as a company. Our team is highly collaborative (we work closely with our data science team) and values planning, design sessions, and feedback through code reviews.
It is also a great team to learn from others and grow in your career, as well as a chance to enact any ideas you may bring to the table. We have frequent team lunches and happy hours and we’re a very open and friendly group.
