About Correlation One

Correlation One helps organizations develop the workforce data literacy and fluency to drive inhouse data transformations and make the most of their technology investments. Companies need data talent to power growth, but there are many blockers to talent development. These obstacles range from structural inequities that have held certain groups back to a dearth of affordable, high-quality, career readiness training.

To meet those needs, we deliver innovative custom training solutions designed to upskill or reskill workforces. Our award-winning stateside data training programs — including Data Science for All (DS4A) — have expanded to support governments in South America and the Middle East who are investing in data literacy today to fill job opportunities in tomorrow's data economy.

Our programs are offered 100% free to learners, thanks to partnerships with some of the world’s most distinguished brands (Amazon, Johnson & Johnson, and SoftBank), corporations that recognize the urgent need to access, develop, and train talent to power data-driven businesses responsibly, ethically, and at scale.

What we're looking for

We’re searching for software engineers who are excited to create software in a collaborative, decentralized environment. Building software requires cooperation, so we want people with strong communication skills who are excited about making high-quality products.

We value traits like empathy, autonomy, and willingness to learn. Having hard tech skills is great, but no matter how good of an engineer you are, getting along with the team is crucial.

Since we're still a small company, you'll likely get to work on a variety of things. Although we do have discrete products and teams (as well as "frontend" and "backend" engineers) if you see something you want to fix or improve, just make a PR. For similar reasons, you may need to be able to deal with ambiguity and figure things out with minimal guidance.

Why you should work at C1

We care a lot about our own culture, and how it develops and evolves over time. Culture is the how of the company - how work gets done, how team members coordinate and communicate, and how decisions get made. We believe putting deliberate effort into shaping the culture makes a huge difference in how a company operates.

Here are some of the things we love about our culture:

- Communication: We have a strong emphasis on written communication. Since we're remote and somewhat asynchronous, we rely a lot on clear and effective writing to get ideas across.
- Consensus: We propose and discuss ideas out in the open. Anyone can contribute to any discussion, regardless of their title or experience. Building consensus is key to shipping high quality software.
- Contributions: There are many ways to contribute here. If you want to write a ton of code, that's awesome. If you want to work on documentation, processes, or strategy, you can do that too. We believe a 10x engineer is somebody who makes other engineers ten times as productive through technical leverage.
- Remote: We're fully remote and distributed across the globe, but we have an office in NYC you can use if you live in the area.

Tech stack

We use React on the frontend, with a mixture of react-query in some products and react context in others. We're currently evaluating standardizing across products with a global state management library.

Python serves our backend, some products are built with Flask and sqlalchemy and some are Django with Django Rest Framework. Postgres is our database.

Our software is hosted on Google Cloud Platform, running Docker & Kubernetes.

Other tech processes

Our code review process aligns with our emphasis on written communication. Each pull request must get two approvals, and anyone on the engineering team can review your code. We are actively trying to level each other up: the worst thing you can say on a pull request is "looks good to me" without giving any further feedback.

We care a lot about code quality - we have a style guide, and believe in testing & writing good commit messages. Our Continuous Integration is strict and rejects pull requests that don't meet our contributing guidelines.
