SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER - PYTHON
Initial product focus: Analytics, our natural language understanding application that enables business decision-makers to understand and act on the voice of the customer.
Luminoso is seeking an engineer to join the team that develops our Analytics product. Our software has some powerful natural language processing and machine learning science at its core, and we're currently focusing on building out a richer feature set that will make this science more easily accessible to our users. Projects you might work on include making our API cleaner and more consistent, supporting the development of rich data visualization tools for our UI, and improving our infrastructure for managing users and permissions.
This is primarily a server-side Python development position, but willingness to help out with some front-end work as needed is a big plus.
