The Role

As a Staff 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.

Chariot is used by customers to develop, deploy, and maintain production ML models. We’re looking for exemplary engineers with a product mindset, who can write quality code in Go and Python, and ultimately want to be core contributors to the direction of the company. You’re right for this challenge if you value and possess technical expertise and you push the boundaries of your own capabilities. You are outcome-driven, not requirements-driven. We’re looking for people who are excited about our core development themes:

  • Everything as Code 
  • Cloud-neutral development 
  • Novel workflow orchestration 
  • Hexagonal, event-driven, microservice architecture 
  • Optimizing, deploying, and refining AI models and algorithms 

The anticipated base pay range for this position is $210,000–$270,000/year. Striveworks’ total compensation package includes a competitive base salary, annual performance-based equity grants, and a lucrative yearly cash bonus.

This position offers a fully remote work environment, or you can work hybrid/onsite at our office in northwest Austin, TX.

The Right Fit

We spend a lot of time during our hiring process talking about shared values. 

Why? We passionately believe that fostering an environment where people can self-actualize and pursue greatness is the best way to achieve our individual and collective goals. 

What does this mean for you? We want to provide you with the conditions to thrive in an environment where you can achieve your goals, where you know the team shares your goals, and where you make and accept decisions for the team with humility. At Striveworks, we want your say/do ratio to be 1 and to know that being part of a top-tier team means that there is no smartest person in the room. If that makes sense, we’re already on the same page.

Here’s what else we’re looking for:

  • 8+ years relevant experience
  • Excellence in Go or Python
  • Knowledge of DevOps tooling: CI/CD tools, Git, Docker, Kubernetes
  • Comfort with cloud architecture: commercial cloud, OpenStack
  • Experience in the design and development of performant, scalable services
  • Familiarity with database design and architecture: relational and non-relational
  • Excellent project planning and communication skills
  • Driven, self-directed personality
  • Strong sense of mission and commitment to making a difference
  • Eligible to work in the US without sponsorship (e.g. Permanent Resident, U.S. Citizen)
  • Bachelor’s degree in CS or related field

The Wish List

We’re very interested in developers who possess the above qualifications, and we heavily appreciate and consider the addition of:

  • Understanding of synchronous/asynchronous programming, concurrency
  • Comfort with deep learning library (Tensorflow, Pytorch) integration
  • Experience designing RESTful or GraphQL APIs
  • Understanding of JavaScript frameworks such as React, Vue, or Angular
  • Understanding of networked and distributed computing (gRPC)
  • Knowledge of messaging systems, e.g. NATS, Kafka, RabbitMQ, or similar
  • Experience with workflow automation

The Benefits

  • Top-of-market salary and total compensation
  • Generous equity plan
  • Health/vision/dental insurance
  • Flexible PTO
  • Parental leave

Striveworks: Better Models, Faster

The world has looked to data analytics to bridge the gap between floods of data and the struggle to use that data effectively to make timely, impactful decisions. Today, most organizations are awash in analytics that “aren’t quite right”—models that were developed too generally or too slowly to be effective in dynamic, fast-paced environments. Striveworks is simplifying MLOps with a powerful and extensible platform that instantiates the data analytic process as code. 

Striveworks is trusted by leading Fortune 500 firms as well as leaders in the public sector as a primary solution for managing model development, monitoring, and governance—and for ensuring those models solve the real challenges their organizations face.

Striveworks’ Chariot platform enables users to turn their own production data into models and turn models into production systems. Chariot uniquely supports data lineage; as you train, test, deploy, and use models, our lineage system enables you to track not only the “upstream” provenance of model and data sources but also the “downstream” usage of the resultant model inferences. Combining this with a principled experience for data and model development, Chariot gives our customers in highly regulated industries an unmatched governance solution on top of a performant MLOps platform.
