For a fast paced, large scale data acquisition project, we’re looking for an experienced technology leader, who will take full ownership of the system, including feature set, architecture, operational monitoring, and cost optimization.

The project is already operational (generating large quantities of data), but still in an incubation phase. As team leader, you will gradually increase the scope and scale of data collection while making the system more robust and flexible.

  • Have a daily standup with your team to review status, new production issues, update priorities
  • Write engineering tickets
  • Write JS data acquisition code in a test-driven methodology (we expect you to contribute directly to the codebase)
  • Coach your team members, review their work


  • At least 3 years of experience working on back-end systems
  • Deep knowledge of JavaScript and Node.js
  • At least 1 year experience inworking on a production system
  • At least 1 year of experience in a role that includes designing major components of a system

  • Familiarity with driving product and engineering aspects of a technical product
