Who we are
Our company has its roots in the Python data science community. Our leaders have had significant involvement in the creation and maintenance of NumPy, SciPy, Jupyter, Spyder, Dask, Conda, Numba, Anaconda and PyData NumFOCUS. Our mission is to connect companies to open-source communities to create sustainable solutions that benefit the whole ecosystem.
We accomplish this mission by providing various services ranging from open-source software development to training and consulting. We believe in a culture of do-ers, learners, and collaborators. We are looking for people who are motivated, humble, curious, and respectful of others.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and highly-motivated software engineer with an interest and experience in numerical and high-performance computing to join the Quansight team.
What you’ll do
Have you noticed Python’s explosion in data science and machine learning and tools like PyTorch, NumPy, Numba and Dask? Would you like to help support this community and build out the future of the open source Python computing ecosystem?
In this position, you’ll get to:
- Work with modern numerical computing and deep learning technology
- Contribute to open-source projects like PyTorch and NumPy
- Use C++, CUDA, Python and C
- Develop new features, performance enhancements and help maintain code with millions of users
- Interact with clients from both industry and academia
- Collaborate with, learn from, and mentor team members
- Be a part of the Python community
Prior experience with particular packages like PyTorch or NumPy is nice to have but certainly not required. If you have expertise in languages like C++, Python and CUDA and can find your way around large code bases, we expect you can learn about any new library or project quickly. We also highly value good communication skills. Knowledge of deep learning is of benefit. We aim to help you grow within Quansight and within the Python open source community.
Why You Should Join
You’ll become an essential part of a small, collaborative, fully distributed engineering team. We strive to provide a working environment that gives you room to learn and grow.
Quansight draws from experience in many large open source communities over the years. Because these communities operate remotely and strive to be as inclusive and participatory as possible, they must also strive to be more transparent and systematic in communicating, sharing information, and working. We are building a culture at Quansight that follows these principles and builds upon them.
We offer flexibility in work times and locations, and vacation time is not just encouraged but celebrated and enforced.
We offer competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, vision, dental, 401K, a comprehensive sick policy, and flexible paid time off for full-time salary based employees.
Where applicable, if you are located outside of the United States, we will work with you to get similar benefits according to your geographical context.
Where We Can Hire
Our engineering team is entirely remote. We are headquartered in Austin, Texas, and the majority of our team is U.S. based. We also have a significant presence in Europe, South America, and Asia. We will consider applicants anywhere (overlap with U.S. and Europe time zones is preferred).
Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Belonging
Quansight understands that valuing diverse creative practices and forms of knowledge are crucial to and enrich the company’s core mission. We encourage applications from everyone, including members of all equity-seeking communities, such as (but certainly not limited to) women, racialised and Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, persons of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions.We are an equal opportunity employer - all qualified applicants will receive equal consideration for recruitment, interviews, employment, training, compensation, promotion, and related activities.
