A Senior Python Engineer to work on the Intelligence Studio team to continue scaling this
application to meet internal and external demand. 
We use cutting edge technology and industry-leading data science to tackle some of the
hardest problems in marketing science. We’re automating our models with artificial
intelligence and machine learning to produce the same quality insights as a traditional
white-glove consulting engagement at unparalleled speed and scale.
So what specifically is Intelligence Studio, you ask, and why is it so cool? Intelligence
Studio is a horizontally scalable, cross-cloud technology-agnostic platform built with trusted
open source components like Kubernetes, Spark, Airflow, MLflow, and TensorFlow. It
allows data scientists to focus on doing data science by taking care of essential concerns
like data access, logging, configuration, resource negotiation, dependency management,
orchestration, and testing. 
This self-service, data science platform solution connects in with partners in a shared
ecosystem, scales by usage, and has the building blocks to help our data scientists and
clients move from creation to deployment of a data science project, at scale.
Interested in what your project will be? Read on!
Recently, we implemented a multi-user cloud-based integrated development environment
with code completion and debugging built-in. And now we’re focused on building a fine-
grained entitlements and access control system for big data.
This position is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced engineer to work with creative
engineers and cutting-edge technologies, so we need hands-on technologists who are
strong in software engineering fundamentals, Big Data, and DevOps.  And did we mention
the cold brew on tap? You’ll also get all the free coffee (hot or cold) you can want, all day
long.
WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:
 Building software and integrations in a cloud-based Microservices environment for Big
Data applications
 Actively participate in team code reviews and enforce quality standards
 Work within a cross-functional team to author clear and purposeful epics/stories
 Promote and enforce best practices in development and operations
 Identify opportunities and weaknesses in the platform architecture

WE ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WITH:
 Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related technical field, or equivalent
industry experience
 5-7+ years of software development experience, preferably in an agile development
environment
 Strong experience in Python development

It would be great if you also have experience with Scala, Flask, Big Data or cloud
technologies, but this isn’t required. We also use cloud software design, containerized
Microservices & distributed caching, but you can learn this if you aren’t familiar with it.
