Job Description

Our mission: To interpret the Earth’s most threatening data.

– Senior Python Developer –

About us:

We tell our customers when bad weather is going to disrupt, delay, or damage their business. Our product provides high-level intelligence and low-level analysis on weather risk for supply chain managers, business continuity professionals, commodity traders, and oil/gas operators. Here’s President Obama looking at our map: http://news.yahoo.com/photos/u-president-barack-obama-looks-…

We’re looking for a couple of developers to join our team. Tools we work with include Python, Celery, Redis, MySQL, Postgres, Backbone, nginx, AWS

About you:

* Able to rapidly gain (and enjoy gaining) new expertise in a previously-foreign, non-technical domain (e.g. weather, earthquakes, wildfires, solar flares)

* Derive joy from seeing huge leaps forward in the customer experience

* Mastery in a non-technical discipline (i.e. you are not only a great developer, but also a master at jazz music, mountain climbing, chess, skiing … something that has taught you how to think beyond a keyboard).

* Ability to collaboratively apply the design principles of Stormpulse to new projects

* Not satisfied with a compromise — always pursue the possibility that two seemingly contradictory goals can be simultaneously achieved through great feats of design / engineering

* Derives pleasure from the final aesthetic


- B.S. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, or college degree with related technical experience required. (“Hackers with Humanities degrees are awesome” says CEO Matt) – Strong experience with one or more of Python, Ruby or similar object oriented dynamic language required. Additional experience with Javascript, HAXE, HTML, or CSS is highly desirable. – Experience with GIS (PostGIS, ESRI, Mapbox) is preferred – Linux experience with knowledge of Linux internals and Distributed Systems preferred. – Self-motivated and driven to continuously improve personal and professional skills combined with openness to constructive feedback. – Strong communication and documentation skills.
