Role Description

We are looking for strong developers to join our small but growing team. As one of the earliest engineering hires, you’ll take on a lead role with vast ownership across one of our stacks. We are tackling challenging and important problems, and need engineers who can operate well in ambiguity and come to a great solution.

As an engineering team, we believe strongly that empathy improves our solutions. Seeing people use the product is a priority and the way we get to the right answer. Engineers will have the opportunity to work closely with our team onsite to understand the variety of use-cases that Peregrine serves. We value strong ownership on our team, while also being highly collaborative and always seeking input and feedback.

As part of being a backend engineer, you’ll use a variety of programming languages and technologies to scale our platform to handle terabytes of data being ingested across a variety of data sources. You will work on a wide range of complex challenges, including building a sophisticated sharing model, processing streams of data from multiple sources, efficiently notifying users on data matching specified criteria, and optimize queries to serve search results quickly. Our stack is constantly evolving but based on the foundations of Python, Django, Celery, Airflow, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, Neo4J, AWS, Terraform, and Ansible.
