POSITION OVERVIEW

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 building rich data visualization tools for our UI and improving our tools for managing users and permissions.

This is primarily a client-side UI development position, but willingness to help out with some back-end Python work as needed is a big plus.

  • Effectively implement designs in HTML and CSS

  • Potentially also contribute to our Python 3 back-end codebase

  • Work with business stakeholders to identify and refine new features

  • Incrementally improve the architecture of the Analytics application through refactoring and design discussions withthe team

  • Help everyone on the team improve continuously through code review, retrospectives, pair programming, and mentoring

KEY CHARACTERISTICS

  • You get excited about going into gnarly old code to make it easier to work with

  • You're a self-directed learner and enjoy finding your way around new tools and environments

  • You enjoy collaborating, communicating and sharing your knowledge with others

  • Any experience with test driven development, refactoring, and extreme programming (XP) will really set you apart!

TECHNOLOGIES WE USE

We don’t expect you to have experience with all of these, but you should be ready to start work in an environment where they’re actively in use.

  • JavaScript

  • React

  • Python 3

  • Flask
