Opportunity: Full-Stack Developer
Build a platform for every materials researcher in the world
Citrine Informatics is looking for an experienced engineer to help us build out our platform for materials scientists to search for scientific data, run machine learning models on their data, and share knowledge with the research community.
Our stack currently includes a Rails application backed by ElasticSearch and a PostgreSQL database, a sprinkling of Java web services, and some Python machine learning models with AngularJS front-ends. As we build more solutions for customers, other technologies are a certainty: We’re committed to using the right tools for the job. We can’t expect you to be fluent in every technology, but an eagerness to learn quickly is a must.
Being the second engineer at Citrine means you will have an enormous impact on the culture of both the entire company and the engineering organization. Someone in this role needs to be very flexible - you must be able to work well in a team / pair, but also be independent enough to drive solutions to completion on your own.
Successful Full-Stack Developer candidates must:
- Have 4+ years professional experience, including at least one production-deployed web technology role
- Have a computer science degree from a four-year university OR equivalent experience
- Have excellent written and verbal communication skills
- Be extremely comfortable using Linux
