Backend Engineer Generalist

| Chicago

InfoScout is looking for a self-starting engineer with a deep desire to learn and develop upon our receipt transcription and consumer application technology stacks. InfoScout currently receives over 300k receipt images per day from our top rated mobile apps, running them through a process that includes computer vision, OCR, machine learning, crowd sourcing, big data ETL, and finally down into our data warehouse. This is an opportunity to jump in and get exposed to all of those technologies while making a meaningful impact on our technology and company.

To help accomplish this goal, you will have the environment to execute on your vision, the tools you need to rapidly iterate through your ideas and a dedicated team to help make you and your work better. In addition to writing quality software, we're looking for individuals who also enjoy the other aspects of building a new company: designing features, making good product decisions, programming at all levels of the stack, and the wearing of many hats.

Insider's spotlight

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work-life balance is a non-issue at InfoScout. I have autonomy to make sure my work falls under a schedule that is appropriate for my life when I need it. Each week, encourage people to be honest with their workload to their team, so we can adjust resources. If we see that someone is drowning in work, we learn why and develop ways to fix the issue.

Shawn

Senior Analyst

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

InfoScout is a highly collaborative company, but many workers are based remotely. Zoom videoconferencing is used on a daily basis to bring together team members in various locations. The company also emphasizes in-person collaboration, and holds several collocated meetings throughout the year.

Brian

Director of Strategic Programs

How does the company support your career growth?

My manager has been very supportive of having career discussions with me during our weekly 1:1's. We have clear and open communication around career growth and set goals that benefit myself, team, and company. This helps to address growth opportunities and next steps in my career.

Nikka

Senior Product Manager

Every quarter, we host a company wide "hack day" for 48 hours. The idea is to take a concept, embrace the lean startup notion that done is better than perfect, and hack your way towards a prototype. While this started as an engineer focused event, sales or services hacks are a popular way to test out new sales approaches and services deliverables.

Jon

CTO

InfoScout truly brings people together even though we have a dispersed team. I’ve learned how to collaborate with my teammates across the country. We share updates through newsletters, events and random jokes to make us laugh! From video meetings to Slack, InfoScout raises the bar on how to stay connected to your teammates no matter where you are.
