What we do:
TrendKite is transforming the way the world views earned media - and we’re making life better for PR professionals in the process. Our platform harnesses big data and analytics to easily measure the impact news coverage has on a brand’s reputation, website traffic, and business goals. As a venture backed, high traction startup, we’re disrupting a huge existing market while helping companies like Nike, Google, Delta, SXSW and hundreds more turn PR coverage into real business impact.
Our Culture:
The TrendKite team is smart, passionate, and loves the hands-on hard work it takes to build a great company. As a company, we work hard, play hard, and do everything we can to make our customers wildly successful. We're a motivated group with a passion for start-ups and the wild but rewarding ride they entail. Enjoy doing stuff outside of the office? Us too! We celebrate our successes outside of work and take care of our people with solid benefits. 

What you’ll do at TrendKite:

  • Work in a collaborative, fast-paced environment with a team of smart, passionate developers

We’d also love you to have:

  • Solid experience with AWS cloud infrastructure
  • Prior experience with stream processing (AWS Kinesis, Storm, Samza, Spark Streaming, etc.)
  • Solid understanding of distributed systems (CAP vs PACELC, Paxos, Raft, etc.)
  • Thoughtful, data-driven opinions on service-oriented solutions and building scalable web services
  • Experience with search technologies like ElasticSearch, AWS CloudSearch, or Solr
  • Familiarity with Agile development methodologies (Kanban preferred)

  • Competitive pay- work hard and we'll take care of you
  • Medical, Dental & Vision for you and your family- we help you out with the cost!
  • Company paid life insurance - just in case
  • Stock Options- we're all owners in the company
  • Enjoy our vacation policy – there is no policy, balance matters
  • Bites and Bytes Fridays - enjoy catered lunch while learning about our company and our industry 
  • Stay fueled up with snacks, gourmet coffee, fancy beer (two on tap along with cold brew coffee and kombucha) and a stocked fridge and pantry for a quality meal
  • Free Parking- worth its weight in gold in downtown Austin
  • Celebrate wins with us- we've rented out a theatre for Star Wars, a party boat on Lake Austin, a custom-cocktail bar over the holidays and plenty more
