As a Senior Software Engineer at Striveworks, you’ll be challenged—and trusted—on day one to be a core contributor to the projects and direction of the company. We are looking for talented software engineers to help us develop data storage and streaming features, tooling, and automation for our next generation MLOps platform.
You’re right for this challenge if you value and possess technical expertise and you push the boundaries of your own capabilities. You will be responsible for rapidly prototyping and delivering proofs of concept for customers. You are outcome-driven, not requirements-driven. You'll be hands-on-keyboard, working alongside a team of data scientists to integrate their work into functional products, examples include applied computer vision, model recommenders, vocoders, and more.
The Right Fit
Purehearted geniuses. How do you know you’re a purehearted genius? Easy: you persevere relentlessly to achieve your goals. You know the team has the same goals as you, and you make and accept decisions for the team with humility. Your say/do ratio is 1. Your “acceptable” is what others call “excellence.” You know that there is no smartest person in the room. Fit all those? We’re already on the same page. Here’s what else we’re looking for:
- Expertise in database design and architecture: relational, document, embedding, graph
- Strong SQL skills
- Proficiency with Golang and Python
- Comfortable with Docker and Kubernetes
- 5+ years relevant experience
- Driven, self-directed personality
- Strong sense of mission and commitment to making a difference
- Eligible to work in the U.S. (e.g. permanent resident, U.S. citizen)
The Wish List
- Experience building databases or object stores
- Distributed data architectures and frameworks such as Hadoop, Hive, Spark, Presto, etc; experience with PB-scale data warehouses a plus
- Experience with public cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure ) and/or private cloud (OpenStack)
- Knowledge of batch and stream processing systems (Flyte, Airflow, Flink)
