Senior Software Engineer (Java / Backend)

| Austin

Do you enjoy working with smart people to solve fascinating problems involving complex data platforms and recommendation systems in a modern, reactive Java stack? Do you take pride in coming up with elegant, readable, and maintainable code? Do you enjoy understanding an entire business, and how your contribution makes customers happier?

If you do, come help us bring people closer to the content that matters to them most! 

To do so, we collect and analyze billions of events per month. We leverage AWS, Kafka, Elasticsearch, Docker, Datadog, and other technologies in order to build a reliable and scalable platform, and we need someone with strong Java, data, and systems skills to help us expand and maintain the platform.

Ultimately, we are looking for curious and adaptable people who deliver results and think critically. It would also help if you have a good sense of humor and happen to be a champion ping pong player.

We are a small, venture funded startup that solves a critical problem for prominent brands that leverage content marketing. We offer flexible work arrangements and excellent benefits. We are located in Austin, TX.
