Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: North or South America

Category: Software Dev


 At Bevy Labs we have deep experience building community from the ground up. We are building the best products to help companies manage and scale their user groups and event communities all over the world. We are a distributed company and strive to be as diverse as the people using our products.

Bevy Labs Engineering

On the engineering team you are at the heart of the action, contributing to products that are actively used by world-class communities to create connections and experiences for their people.

We care about solving challenging problems to build products that make a real difference in the lives of our customers and their users. We also care about the craft of software engineering and how we can always become better at what we do, individually as well as collectively.

This means continuous integration, lots of automated test coverage, thorough reviews, good thinking and lots of experiments to discover new ways of improvement.

We are still small and nimble, but we are excited to grow.

This position

All members of the engineering team are expected to participate broadly in development activities, including design discussions and code reviews. This position has a primary focus on analytics. Our goal in this area is to build effective solutions to enable our clients to answer important questions about their communities.

You

You will fit in well with us, if you:

  • Reside in North or South America. Yes, we are a distributed company, but since we are still small, we like to minimize the time zone spread within the team.

  • Are an excellent communicator. In our small team, English is the official language. You need to be able to articulate complex ideas efficiently and effectively. When people do not share an office, it is essential to pay extra attention to communication.

  • Have a solid technical background. You should have at least five years of professional software development experience and be able to point to a track record of caring about software engineering practices and increasingly challenging problems solved.

  • Feel at home with Python/pandas, JavaScript/React.js and the shell command line.

  • Can point to a track record of interesting data science/analytics projects that you can discuss, some of which ideally available in open source repositories for discussion.

  • Like to learn and strive to do so often. As a company we improve to the extent that our team does. It starts with each individual. Humility and an open mind help a lot.

  • Ideally know what it is like to work in distributed development teams, or better yet, thrive in them. It probably means you already know you don’t need a structured office environment with a manager who checks in on you once a day. Likewise, you know that you will do best from your home office.

  • Can teach us about things like distributed web application architectures, implementing large payment systems, secure coding practices, implementing security controls in software architectures or localizing web applications for non-American audiences.

We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and the communities we serve.

Principals only please.
