Want to build a product that uses data to see and make sense of the future?

If you are a passionate technologist who wants to make an impact working on a product that clients love, we’d want to talk with you.

At CB Insights, we build products that help clients make sense of the future and drive their businesses forward, using data. Our system retrieves large amounts of structured and unstructured data, uses scientific methods to extract knowledge and insights from the data and presents the data through a sophisticated dynamic user interface which enables the user to find answers to their most important questions.

As an Engineering Manager at CB Insights you will lead a high performing team to solve challenging technical problems and coach engineers to meet their full potential.  

Our Engineering Managers’ main responsibility is to build and foster a cross-disciplinary team to form the future of our platform, using state-of-the-art technologies regularly shipping high quality code to production. The ideal candidate not only has technical chops to dive into code, but also has proven ability to provide technical leadership for projects while inspiring a team of software engineers. 

You will help us build and manage a remote-first team, and you can work from anywhere in the USA (Except Washington, Ohio, South Carolina or DC). 

This is a technical and managerial role working across the stack, enabling the team to build beautiful user interfaces, robust services and scalable data processing jobs, while partnering closely with the product and design team and managing stakeholders.  We focus on modularity and reuse where it makes sense while ensuring that there are no constraints to delivering world-class software continuously following a smooth development process.

Much of our software team has been with us for several years, despite a white hot tech market with options galore. We attribute this to our collaborative teach and learn culture where the role evolves with your interests.

  • A growing problem in scientific research is the poor reproducibility of the reported scientific claims. scite, a Brooklyn-based startup backed by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and leading venture capitalists, is working to solve this problem by developing a platform that evaluates the veracity of scientific claims through citation analysis. By ingesting millions of scientific articles, extracting the citation context, and then applying our deep learning model we are able to identify citations as supporting, contradicting, or simply mentioning.

    DESCRIPTION

    Citymapper engineers come from diverse backgrounds: startups, big tech companies, and even those that have never worked anywhere before. Some come with letters after their name like “PhD” or from backgrounds in things like astrophysics; some come with no formal engineering education or from backgrounds in veterinarian compliance.

    In our small team, we represent more than a dozen countries and languages. What unites us in an intense desire to create the best products, data and tools to help people move around complex cities. We breathe, eat, sleep, and dream mobility and cities from the algorithms to the data to the tools that make the data. Check out our blog at engineering.citymapper.com.

    We need great engineers who are up to the challenge of making cities usable. There are features to ship, hard problems to solve, and scaling challenges to meet. The fruit is hanging low for smart, motivated people.

    In addition to the app we solve interesting problems with - Citymapper Pass, a new subscription pass for London integrated with the app experience.

    We have roles in the following areas:

    • Backend & internal APIs

    • Routing systems and algorithms

    • Integrating with credit card processors

    • Full-stack web engineers

    • Site reliability / Operations

    • Security

    • (Transit or User's) Data pipelines

    Experienced engineers should feel free to apply here as well and indicate any interest in more senior or managerial roles. We find having a single general stack easier to manage internally than having multiple funnels.

    REQUIREMENTS

    Citymapper engineers drive things forward and get things done. Our engineers build features today that users will use tomorrow. You must be ready to firefight against scaling challenges in real time. You must not waiver in the face of highly complex mishmashes of data that need untangling.

    Citymapper engineers work across multiple stacks and handle many projects simultaneously. We deliver features and system-wide improvements on a daily basis. To be successful here, you must be able to write scalable, performant code and be on-deck to deploy and monitor your creations. You will help build the train, lay the tracks, and be the conductor.

    Our primary languages are Python, Go, and C++. You'll be expected to dive into new code and make sense of what you find. You'll be expected to adopt best practices and uphold a high standard of quality to keep us afloat.

    BENEFITS

    • Competitive pay

    • Meaningful equity / stock options

    • Working in a not-too-big, strong and diverse engineering team

    • Influence the product that you and your friends use every day

    • Various startup perks like food and travel.

  • Parse.ly (US, Canada, Mexico or Argentina)
    1 month ago

    We are seeking a senior developer who loves programming and shipping production software, but who also has keen design instincts and an ability to simplify, simplify, simplify -- until the data speaks for itself.

    Our frontend team owns the core experience of Parse.ly’s customer-facing SaaS products -- most importantly, its real-time analytics dashboard.

    Parse.ly is a fully distributed team, which means 100% of our engineers, designers, and product managers (including our founder & CTO) work out of home offices. Most of the frontend team is located in US/Eastern and US/Central timezones. We'll also give preference to those timezones, because even though we operate on a distributed/async model, we like to have timezone overlap for f2f (video) collaboration and pairing. We prefer to hire US-based candidates, but we'll consider Canada, Mexico, and Argentina for this role.

    So, you might wonder, how do I get an interview with Parse.ly?

    To prove design instincts to us, we ask that you point toward some work you have done in the past that showcases your frontend, UX, or data viz design tastes. For example:

    • A web portfolio of data visualization sketches, e.g. on bl.ocks.org, codepen.io, or similar.

    • Github, or similar, code repos for JavaScript code, along with a README that describes or showcases how it looks when run.

    • Dribbble, or similar, screen crops of your designed interfaces.

    • Screenshots of past products you have worked on and how they looked in a shipped state, with some explanation of what parts you worked on, and how it was built. Using something like Dropbox is fine.

    • Or, if none of the above are available, feel free to get creative! Perhaps include a recorded live demo (you could try loom.com to record it); share a link to a recorded presentation at a conference or meetup; or, even share raw notes captured from your notebook. Indeed, photos of your design sketchbooks are very much welcome!

    Your Perspective on JavaScript

    JavaScript has gone through a lot of iteration in the last several years. Parse.ly has existed across three JavaScript maturity waves: (1) simple rich web apps built with Python/Django and a touch of jQuery & D3.js; (2) full AngularJS 1.x SPAs powered by a Django REST API, during the peak of Angular 1's popularity; (3) componetized React applications powered by REST APIs & GraphQL, more recently. We even had a brief stint with Vue.

    Given this evolution, Parse.ly frontend engineers develop a mastery over JavaScript and web technologies, pick the best tool for the job, and don't fuss about the particular framework du jour. You'll be working on a modern JavaScript codebase -- parts of which might leverage AngularJS, D3.js, React, or other libraries. Since you're a senior JavaScript engineer, a mix of frameworks doesn't bother you in the slightest, as you realize it's the nature of the beast for a set of successful and production web applications developed 2013-2019. And, since you're a senior software engineer, cracking open the middle tier -- which is written with established & stable technologies like Python 3, Django, and Postgres -- doesn't bother you either.

    What You’ll Do:

    • Write JavaScript code using the best practices.

    • Come up with novel interface implementations and data visualizations.

    • Write code in Python that power our Django-based HTTP API.

    • Creatively sketch and design new product features.

    • Analyze customer usage data to improve shipped features.

    An Ideal Applicant Will Have:

    • 5+ years experience in technology.

    • A preference for self-sufficient productivity.

    • A highly organized and disciplined approach to self-improvement.

    • Senior level of proficiency with modern JavaScript.

    • Comfort with git, the command line, and Python.
