Job Description

Bedrock Analytics is looking for an exceptional back end engineer to help us further develop a platform for story-driven analytics. On the back-end, you have worked with Play or Spring Boot framework to build microservices. On the front-end, you’ve worked with libraries and frameworks like Backbone, and you are familiar with newer frameworks like React and Angular. You have a track record of delivering web applications that people enjoy using, and that support enhancements over time.

If you worked on machine learning and statistical modeling in the past and you enjoyed it, there will be many interesting challenges here.

You like working in an Agile best-practices environment. You understand the importance of testable, modular, efficient code. You work with testing frameworks to ensure that your code works reliably and across different clients.

A couple of the fun problems we’re working on:

Guided Story Creation

  • You enjoy your work. We work hard, but we care a lot about team spirit and collaboration. We also try not to take ourselves too seriously.

Qualifications

  • 3+ years of professional web development experience
  • BA/BS degree in Computer Science preferred.
  • Firm understanding of best practices for object-oriented and modularized software with a particular emphasis on Java
  • Strong understanding of web technologies: Play Boot or Spring Boot or, AWS (S3, RDS, etc.), Jenkins and associated technologies/tools.
