Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Development


Seeq makes data analytics software for a big market that’s often overlooked by tech companies: industrial process data. Think pharmaceutical manufacturers, wind farms, and energy companies with tons of equipment and sensors. Our software engineers tackle hard problems in streaming calculation, storage and distributed computing, and we create elegant HTML5 data visualizations with smooth interactivity.


Our company is 100% remote and proud of it. We use a variety of collaboration tools, like Zoom and Slack, which makes us feel like we’re in the same building together. We have a stacked team of kind-hearted, talented engineers that love to collaborate, teach each other new tricks, and build products that far exceed our customers’ expectations.


The core of our product is a full-featured calculation engine that can perform complex math and execute machine learning algorithms on streaming time series data.


SKILLS & REQUIREMENTS

As a Software Support Engineer (SSE) you’ll join our growing team to help our customers install our software (or, in the case of our cloud offering, deploy to our cloud-hosted environment), connect to their datasources, integrate their identity/authentication infrastructure, and upgrade to new versions. You will interact with customers directly (usually over Zoom webconferencing) to troubleshoot technical issues with our software. You will be a member of the product development team, and will have a strong voice in shaping development effort to improve customer satisfaction and mitigate common pain points.

You have many (or even all!) of the following qualities:

  • You are motivated by solving customer problems. You tenaciously dig in to find the real root cause.

  • You are extremely responsive and communicative and are excited to help customers even during off-hours.

  • You like both Linux and Windows. (90% of our customers use Windows Server.)

  • You are constantly finding ways to perfect your craft, be a better teammate, and come up with cool stuff. You may or may not be Batman and/or Catwoman.

  • You are disciplined with a high attention to detail.

  • You are patient and empathetic when you're helping customers with problems.

  • You learn things quickly. You’re usually the one suggesting new ideas and raising the bar for the whole team. You listen really well, and you know how to make your ideas be heard without turning people off.

  • You are fluent in networking technologies such as TCP/IP, HTTP(S), and Ethernet, and you’re not afraid to dive into a deep investigation with tools like Wireshark, tcpdump, TCPView, Process Explorer and the rest of the Sysinternals Windows power tools.

  • You have a Bachelor's or Associate Degree in Computer Science, Information Technology / Information Systems or related field.

  • You are up for traveling periodically to work with customers on-site or to attend our meetups to hang out with your colleagues and get some face-to-face time.

  • You know how to balance life & work, and you don’t want a job that forces you to choose between them.

  • You want to work with a bunch of really smart people that love working together. And you want to work for a startup with good investors and a bright future.

    • Learn, evolve and improve an existing application/system architecture.

    • Review code from other engineers and provide feedback.

    • Help secure the environment.

    • Develop Shorthand app server-side and API functionality to help improve the customer experience. 

    • Contribute to the technical direction of the Shorthand tool.

    Yesterday

    Frontastic is looking for a PHP Backend Developer (f/*/m) as full-time or part-time employee or freelancer. We're a remote-first company currently operating in the Europe/Berlin timezone.

    Your responsibility will be building and maintaining Frontastic's API Integrations. Frontastic is unique in connecting multiple headless systems to a single frontend and making this interaction configurable by Frontend Managers. We maintain abstractions for the most important domain concepts and will continuously integrate more headless backends. These integrations must be resilient, maintainable, observable and extensible and are integrated in our backend for frontend ACatwalk). You can introspect existing implementations here: https://github.com/FrontasticGmbH/common.

    This isn't a junior position, which doesn't mean you must have worked in this role before. In any case, you're aware of your technical ambassador talent and are able to excite people.

    What You'll Do

    • Maintain and improve existing API integrations

    • Maintain, extend and improve API abstraction test framework

    • You have existing experience with building API integrations in PHP and understand that backwards compatibility and consistency is essential when building software that a large number of customers will base their projects on.

    • You're motivated to work from your home office or a co-working space and able to structure your workday accordingly. That’s what makes you special:

    • Deep knowledge of handling external APIs over various protocols (REST(ful), GraphQL, …)

    • Awareness of issues which occur in high load production setups when software is based on the data of external APIs

    • An understanding of the requirements of working in software development (quality assurance, testing, monitoring)

    • You have a completed education and at least 3 to 5 years of professional experience as a Backend Developer or in a comparable field

    • You reside and work in Europe

    • You have good writing and communication skills in English

    What We Offer

    Our team strives to improve themselves following these guidelines:

    • We offer a friendly learning environment and try hard not to blame anyone for not knowing something and actively encourage mentoring of our peers.

    • We use practices like pair programming, test-driven development when it makes sense and continuously refactor our code to constantly share knowledge and keep the amount of technical debt low.

    • The same goes for us as a company, we continuously refactor our rules and guidelines. Overall, we have a very transparent, helpful, warm, familiar employee culture.

    • We're a remote-first company with regular meetings in-person. We use tools like email, Hangouts and Slack to stay in touch during our daily work.

    We're an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We don't discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
