Job Description

Kinetica seeks a Senior Software Engineer with Python & Distributed Systems experience. As a member of the ML Product Engineering Team, you'llbuild out the product in Python & integrate all other parts (Kubernetes, Docker, & our GPU-powered DB, etc) using Python bindings to build & deliver an overall product (a REST API.) This is a Product Engineering role, so we are building a generic solution that works across many industries, many use-cases, many clients, many data varieties, many data volumes, & many data velocities (rather than building for a specific use case or a specific client -- this offers a huge opportunity to make a mark on a fast-growing industry.)

Job Responsibilities

  • Integrate a variety of components into an overall smooth-functioning product
  • Ability to bring things to a close -- not just exploring but getting things to the finish line.
  • Research products & keep abreast of marketplace offerings & possibilities
  • Work with commercial & open-source packages to find stacks to achieve required product features
  • Work with a close-knit team to design & develop a release-quality commercial product
  • Work with our broader engineering group to ensure products fit into the company's product lineup
  • Work iteratively to hone proofs-of-concept for new product features & steadily merge development into the overall product
  • Keep attuned to the marketplace & spot opportunities to expand functionality in response to new technical capabilities as they arise
  • Keep attuned to customer use & actively work to improve product experience to meet usage, both current & future usage the customer may not even realize they need

  • Technical Degree in Computer Science, Operations Research, Statistics, Math, Physics, or equivalent
  • 5+ years of Python development experience
  • Proficiency working in Linux development environments
  • Experience in structured work environments with automated-testing & quality processes
  • Experience developing REST APIs
  • Familiarity with SQL & databases
  • Familiarity with containerized Python applications (Docker specifically)
  • Desire to work with large datasets
  • Exposure to one machine learning open-source package (sklearn, TensorFlow, Caffe2, Torch, etc.)
  • Strong communication skills, written & verbal, used in a fast-moving environment

Bonus Qualifications:

  • Familiarity with Container Orchestration (Kubernetes specifically)
  • Strong communication skills as demonstrated by personal projects, technical blog postings, volunteer activities, etc.
  • Interest in Machine Learning & Data Science
  • Experience working with highly complex technical ecosystems (resource managers, containers, automated testing -- e.g., Mesos, Kubernetes, Docker)
  • Familiarity with popular python libraries (NumPy)
  • Understanding of the data science ecosystem -- commercial & open source
  • Participation in hackathons; wins at hackathons or Kaggle leaderboards are even more impressive
  • Experience working with computational systems (e.g., NumPy, Pandas, Spark, etc.)

Applicants are encouraged to share online project/code portfolios & any demonstrations of community participation (e.g., public Github profiles, public StackOverflow profiles, public Kaggle profiles, technical blog postings, etc.)
