    When someone installs Density in a location, they get access to real time, accurate people count. The experience is magical to a customer, but the process involved in accomplishing it is complex. Density has counted 13 million humans, and that number is growing exponentially. We are seeking a talented backend engineer to help architect a suite of web-based products to transform that data into insight.

    The software systems that support Density are foundational: our customer facing APIs and applications, the systems that manage and orchestrate our fleet of devices, and the internal tools that keep our organization running smoothly. We put a high value on the infrastructure that supports our systems, and love approaching problems through research, prototyping, and experimentation. We are not afraid to embrace new technologies, but are mindful in what we choose.  

    As an organization, we understand the importance of design, focusing on fundamental problems, and decentralizing decision making. As an engineering team, we design, build, and test with simplicity and scalability in mind. As individuals, we take ownership in our work and decisions. We’re looking for someone with a deep understanding of the web who shares these ideals.

    This position reports to Density's Director of Software Engineering.

    What you'll work on

    • Lead backend development on internal and customer facing projects, utilizing Python and Django
    • Build APIs and data delivery mechanisms for applications such as web dashboards, alerting & health systems, mobile applications, and third party integrations
    • Monitor, understand inefficiencies, and improve the data pipeline
    • React to customer needs and feedback through tight-looped, iterative development
    • Contribute to open source initiatives
    • Document and teach best practices across our stack

    What we're looking for

    • 5+ years industry experience building and scaling web applications and APIs
    • Deep experience with Python and Django
    • Experience building data-centric applications, including analytics pipelines, report generation systems, and alerting & health systems
    • An understanding and appreciation for application performance monitoring and profiling tools
    • A desire to define, document, and teach web engineering standards
    • Strong writing skills, with experience crafting clear and concise documentation
    • A motivation for constant learning

    Icing on the cake

    • Experience with statistical analysis and trend data modeling
    • Experience with building applications using ES6, React, and Redux
    • A deep appreciation for design
    • A strange obsession with counting people (or what you can do with the resultant data)

    While we have offices in Syracuse (NY), San Francisco, and NYC, we embrace and have built a culture around remote work.
