Luminoso is a growing team looking to add a back-end developer to help us attack the problems of natural language processing on a large scale. As we work with ever increasing amounts of data, we particularly need someone with the expertise to design the right ways to handle all that data, reliably and with high availability. Not only do we need to store and search the data, we also need to feed it efficiently through our awesome text analysis pipeline, in batches or in ongoing streams.
For this job, we require the courage to solve new problems with distributed NoSQL systems, the serenity to use PostgreSQL when it’s the right tool for the job, and the wisdom to know the difference.
· Write, test, and refactor Python code for improved natural language processing;
· Design databases and other storage systems that interact with the code, in a way that is resilient and fast;
· Participate in code review and (modified) scrum meetings;
· Collaborate with the Operations and Development teams to tackle the high scalability challenges that come with rapid growth.
We require experience with:
· Software development on Linux
Experience with the following is a bonus:
· NumPy and SciPy
· Python 3
We particularly seek individuals with sharp and tenacious troubleshooting capability. Strong communication skills and willingness to take initiative are also desired.
