      Our mission is to help people find work that matters. We believe that the world is better when people understand the opportunities available to them. Our human-assisted AI platform delivers great results to our customers (customer quote: "I'd have a panic attack if you guys stopped existing").

      Because of this, we raised $3.5M from OpenAI researchers and Lightspeed Venture Partners at one of the highest ever valuations coming out of YC. Our team has previously sold companies, published machine learning research, has Dropbox's former Chief of Staff, and hails from MIT, Google, Airbnb, McKinsey, etc.

      Help us create a world where all 7 billion people work at jobs that they love, do things that they’re great at, and work for companies that are solving meaningful problems.


      Responsibilities

        • Own projects from conception and design through testing and deployment.
        • Collaborate with product, design, and users to understand the requirements and determine what we should build.
        • Minimize the complexity of the software that you create and maintain.
        • Continually improve your own software engineering skills (whether via side projects, classes, or whatever else works for you)

      Sample projects

        • Create tools and interfaces for customers to integrate our service more tightly with their own recruiting workflow (whether that's in their browser, their inbox, or via our own interface that let's them quickly find and add candidates to their process).
        • Ensure that candidates have a great experience at each customer -- integrating into the application tracking system to ensure that no candidates are dropped, flagging high priority candidates for the customer that need action right now, and allowing customers to see metrics about their recruiting funnel so they can improve the experience themselves.
        • Give customers visibility into, and control over, the entire product and recruiting process -- it currently operates mostly as a black box, and exposing the options already present in the system will make customers feel more in control and even happier about the product experience.

      Requirements

        • 3+ years of back end software engineering experience.
        • Strong software engineering skills.
        • Understand both the value of shipping quickly and of software craftsmanship, and have the judgment to know when to apply each.

      Narrative is building the first global data marketplace. It has often been said that data is the new currency. Unfortunately, maximizing the value of data is often easier said than done. On one side, transacting via individual point to point integrations carries a lot of overhead in both business development and technical integration efforts. On the other, going through big aggregators introduces opacity in the pricing and provenance of the data. At Narrative, we help our customers get value from their data by building a central auction platform to reduce the friction and tooling to increase the transparency in this process.

      We are a small, early stage team looking for great developers who want to jump in and take major systems and user-facing features from design to launch. Here’s where we are now:

      We are operating in Amazon Web Services. Our services are mainly deployed on EC2 provisioned with Terraform.

      We also heavily use other technology on AWS such as DynamoDB, S3, and RDS.

      Our backend includes a data ingestion web service with supporting Kinesis consumers, along with a growing array of Spark projects. It’s written mostly in Scala, with a smattering of Python for lambda functions.

      We sit somewhere in the middle of the “Scala as a worse Haskell” and “Scala as a better Java” spectrum. We love functional programming and we do make use of libraries like cats, but at the same time we heavily favor core language features and have no intention of rewriting everything using Free Monads.

      Our web app UI is written in Typescript with Angular2 and a supporting API running on Node, and is deployed and monitored using much the same supporting tech as the backend.

      Other services we use include: GitHub, CircleCI, DataDog.

      Here are some examples of projects that we would like some help with:

      Interactive tools to help buyers discover the data they need to accomplish their business objectives.

      Interactive tools to help sellers maximize the yield from the data that they are selling.

      Data analytics pipelines to drive the interactive report UIs. For example: reports for yield forecasting and deal pre-qualification.

      The ideal candidate should:

      Have experience building modern web applications using Javascript, HTML, and CSS.

      Be able to debug various aspects of web application code, such as cross-browser Javascript quirks.

      Thoroughly understand the HTTP lifecycle and how the browser interacts with web APIs.

      Enjoy building fast, user-friendly UIs.

      Not be afraid of contributing to the entire stack when the need arises, given that frontend doesn’t simply mean HTML/CSS. For instance, a feature might require

      some metrics to be computed from a Spark Report

      creating a MySQL migration script

      tweaking S3 permissions and terraform scripts for deployment

      We are not looking for a 100% fit on all the technology buzzwords, but we are looking for someone with strong technical skills who is eager to pick up new technologies as necessary.

      We are building the team with a remote-first mindset, and as a result every team member is expected to have an ability to synthesize business requirements, distill the domain, contribute to high-level design documents, efficiently communicate asynchronously, and more generally work autonomously toward a shared vision.

      Continuously investing in quality (code quality, tests, pull request reviews, refactoring…) is part of our strategy to sustainably maximize the business value we deliver.

      Improving the latency and resource usage of our transaction processes.

      Qualifications

      Have experience in a typed functional language such as Scala or F#, or significant experience in their non-functional equivalents (Java, C#) with an interest in Scala.

      Have experience working with non-trivial quantities of data. As of this writing, our ingestion pipelines are handling something on the order of 500GB .snappy.parquet files per day. Prior work with Spark would be ideal, but experience with similar MapReduce-based technologies would also be helpful.

      Have experience operating in a cloud environment like Amazon Web Services, Google Compute Engine, or similar.

      Be able to work across all aspects of back end systems, from application code to SQL to systems administration.

      Not be afraid of contributing to the entire stack (from the UI to Devops) when the need arises.

      About Narrative

      These days, data is everywhere and has immense benefits for businesses. Companies that have data can sell it to companies that need it to improve their business; a win-win situation. However, current data discovery and distribution inefficiencies slow this win-win situation down to a grinding halt.

      Narrative simplifies the data landscape by automating the hard-to-navigate world of data acquisition and distribution into two, easy-to-use software platforms.

      Narrative's Acquire platform gives businesses access to massive amounts of raw data across many suppliers. With full transparency, companies know exactly what they’re getting and which suppliers it came from.

      Narrative's Distribute platform standardizes and deduplicates data, giving companies instant demand for their data and new, turn-key revenue streams.

      On top of that, everything is automated, centrally managed with actionable analytics and aligns with GDPR compliance.

      In a world where raw data is fueling businesses, Narrative is the platform that powers the data economy.

      We’re looking for talented developers who want to be part of a young company in an exciting time of growth, and to help make EmailOctopus the preferred email platform for millions of users worldwide.

      About EmailOctopus

      Set up by two brothers in London in 2014, we’re a bootstrapped (and profitable!) startup with big ambitions to disrupt the email marketing industry. To date, our customers have sent over 3.5 billion emails and saved in excess of $100,000. Over the next few years, we’re looking to improve our platform, expand our feature set and significantly grow our customer base.

      We’re a friendly, personal team and we pride ourselves on delivering outstanding service to our users just as much as we do in building an amazing product. We’re a fully remote business, with the team spread across London, Manchester and Vancouver.

      The role

      As a developer at EmailOctopus, you’ll be helping maintain our existing platform as well as supporting our biggest project yet: switching from AWS-supported platform to a fully independent email service provider. Your skills will help us ensure that our platform is robust, tested and set up to succeed at scale, so we can keep reliably delivering billions of emails on behalf of our users.

      Your skills and experience

      We’re looking for developers who are quick to adapt to new technologies. You will have some or all of the skills below, but an appetite to learn is most valuable.


      * Strong experience in PHP and its web frameworks, such as Symfony/Laravel

      * Familiar with AWS and sysadmin

      * Experience in Redis/MySQL/BigQuery

      * Experience with Python

      * Comfortable with version control

      * Interested in developing highly scalable and robust web applications

      * Passionate about writing clean and maintainable code

      * Workable frontend/UX skills


      Benefits

    • Precision and correctness are two of your core values. Thanks in part to your formal CS education, you have an excellent understanding of algorithm performance and can make good decisions regarding tradeoffs. You know the fundamentals of how computers and networks operate and have programmed in a low level language such a C or Go. Your Node.js experience builds on top of these fundamentals and you have a complete understanding of the Node event loop. 

      You have experience building complex systems and keeping them humming. You find great satisfaction in solving challenges that only appear at scale. It helps that you're an expert at troubleshooting problems using a vast amount of logs generated across multiple services. Once you've identified a performance bottleneck, you know how to correct it.


      Whilst you spend most of your time writing software, setting up infrastructure from time to time is no big deal and you're comfortable working with Linux, Docker and GCP/AWS. 

      Does this sound like you? If it does, join us and change the way modern web apps are built! You’ll be directly responsible for shaping the architecture behind our unique infrastructure. This is not just a standard webapp but a complex, highly elastic, multi-cloud browser rendering service consisting of mostly stateless and some stateful services.
