BrandsEye hunts for data about brands and companies, and helps them understand what is being said, and why, by converting data to actionable insights using machine learning and human insight.
The challenge for our development team is to write software that analyzes and stores real-time streams of data (millions of Tweets, Facebook posts, blog and news posts, print media etc.) and extracts information from them. We have many back-end services communicating with each other and front-end applications to make all this happen.
We're an Endeavor company, with global clients, and we're growing fast. We pride ourselves on getting from a business idea or a solution to a problem to a quality working system in production quickly with as little overhead as possible. "Move fast and break things" with less of the "break things" part. We are a small team and need everything to run reliably so we can continue to get things done.
The following skills will be essential for success:
You'd need to be on the pulse of the ever-changing world of JS (and able to pick the winners!), be comfortable with Linux command line and a bit of bash, be experienced in delivering projects from idea to production, and be willing and able to mentor and nurture a self-directed, talented and highly curious team of developers.
A background in Java, Spring etc. is advantageous but not essential.
