This is an exciting time for Hyperscience’s product, business, and people!
You will have the opportunity to influence and deliver on a bold vision for transforming the way organizations model and execute their business processes, and there will be many opportunities for growth along the way.

Key responsibilities:

  • Collaborate cross-functionally with Product Managers, Designers, and other engineers, including Machine Learning, Front-End/Full Stack, DevOps, and QA
  • Leverage your knowledge to design, build, and deliver scalable and resilient software

  • Creatively solve functional challenges with the Product team even when the initial answer is not fully defined
  • Creatively solve technical challenges in the face of competing tradeoffs
  • Design easy-to-use interfaces that will be leveraged by other developers, including APIs for 3rd-party developers
  • Ensure product quality and code quality by writing automated tests and performing thorough code reviews and design reviews

  • You will get to know our ML domain, codebase, and practical applications.

  • Within your first quarter and beyond:
  • You will be an integral part of the team and a driven, focused self-starter who can navigate a certain amount of ambiguity, and who is not afraid to take a sizable chunk of functionality, analyze it, break it down, implement it and then assume ownership and responsibility over it.
