Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Dev


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.

We are looking for a senior full-stack developer interested in making a positive impact on a large societal problem. Our team is nearly fully remote so we are looking for individuals that are self-motivated and eager to take on a leading role at a growing startup. Specifically, we are seeking people with experience in any/all of the following:

  • JavaScript (ES6)

  • React/Redux

  • Python

  • Postgres

  • Elasticsearch

  • Docker/Docker Swarm

  • Mongo

  • Keras/TensorFlow

  • On being a Team Happiness Engineer at balena

    At balena, we spend a lot of time working to ensure that our team is cared for. As our team grows, we want to make sure that this is the case, which means working on interesting and rewarding challenges!

    One of our priorities in terms of team happiness is to optimise team scheduling. We’re a remote-first company distributed across many continents, and as a result, scheduling meetings and ensuring we always have engineers available to support our users is a difficult challenge.

    We believe it’s important to ensure that every member of the team is able to choose their working hours and maintain a healthy work-life balance, which means taking these parameters into account when scheduling.

    As you may have read on our blog, we achieve this through the use of advanced constraint programming algorithms. This turns a task which would be tedious and inefficient to do by hand into a rewarding mathematical challenge which simultaneously results in a better and more flexible outcome for our team.

    Algorithmic scheduling is of course just one example of pain reduction for the team. We have more ideas on how tools like constraint solvers can be applied to boost team happiness and success, for example the optimisation of team activities and professional development.

    We are looking for a full stack “team happiness” engineer to join us in this venture by innovating and implementing engineering solutions to reduce discomfort and friction across our team. We can’t wait to see what you can come up with!

    Requirements

    • Extremely good problem-solving abilities. You know how to split a complex problem into incremental pieces.
    • The software engineering skills to implement these solutions programmatically.
    • The ability to execute and complete software projects.
    • Good understanding of software engineering practices and how to apply them (e.g. version control, tests, descriptive commit messages).
    • Self-motivation to find the best possible outcome from a myriad of options.
    • Desire to make yourself and others more effective; you’d be bothered by an inefficient process.
    • Excellent written communication skills, and fluency in English.
    • The ability to work remotely, with a remote team around the world.
    • The candour to question the status quo.

    Nice to have:

    • Experience with Linux, TypeScript, JavaScript frameworks, Python, HTML/CSS and databases
    • Experience with Google Sheets, Google Apps Script, and managing projects on the Google Cloud Platform.
    • A good understanding of git and GitHub.
    • An interest in mathematical modelling, optimisation and constraint solvers.
    • A sample of your work (URL or attached sample).
    • Experience in a full stack developer role.
    • Having worked remotely before.

    About working at balena

    We come from 15+ countries, and we embrace a remote culture with flexible hours. To us, this means being highly productive while still maintaining a healthy work-life balance. You need to be able to work remotely, and have a dependable internet access available so you can join video calls.

    We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We value knowledge and initiative more than educational and personal backgrounds, age, or location. We maintain a work environment in which team members are treated with respect at all times and in which thoughts and ideas can be shared openly.

    We communicate proposals, discuss with others in the team and accept feedback if it makes the result better. We value the ability to learn, which is more important to us than knowledge of specific technologies. We know that learning fast means being outside our comfort zone, which is OK — we'd rather learn than let our assumptions get in our way.

    Benefits

    • Work with an extremely talented, diverse team
    • Equipment of your choice
    • Remote-friendly
    • Flexible working hours
    • Generous vacation policy
    • Annual company gathering in an international location
    • We send you hardware for side projects!

The right candidate will join our small team of highly talented designers, engineers, and our product lead to help us build a real-time analytics system that will enable our users to take the right action at the right time.

    We test early, often, and follow engineering best practices like continuous integration and domain-driven design. Our ideal candidate loves building and growing products from a very early stage, and is excited to see the impact of her/his work on immediate user experience, not to mention get the opportunity to work on interesting algorithms and big data!

    Responsibilities

    • Participate in all aspects of the software development lifecycle, from design and implementation of new features through testing and response to customer feedback.

    • Contribute ideas for new features and identify areas for improvement proactively.

    • Communicate and collaborate effectively on a small team.
