About Us:

YipitData is the leading market research firm for the disruptive economy and recently raised $475M from The Carlyle Group at a valuation of over $1B.

We analyze billions of data points every day to provide accurate, detailed insights on ridesharing, e-commerce marketplaces, payments and more. Our on-demand insights team uses proprietary technology to identify, license, clean and analyze the data many of the world's largest investment funds and corporations depend on.

We are one of Inc's Best Workplaces - a fast-growing technology company with offices located in NYC (where we are based in), Hong Kong, and Shanghai, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and The Carlyle Group with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and transparency.

About the Engineering Department:

We want to be the best in the world at using data to answer questions, and we're committed to building scalable systems for ingesting, analyzing, and creating value from data.

We are proud to run a small and efficient engineering department (under 40 people).

We invest heavily in standardization, building development tools, and peer-to-peer training to maximize our engineers' impact and let them focus on what is most important to their teams. We offer the flexibility to switch teams based on your career aspirations, a career ladder with growth opportunities, good work/life balance, and we have a very high employee retention rate - our average tenure (for engineers who have been with our organization for over a year) is 5+ years!

About The Role:

We're looking for a full-stack engineer to join our Portal team. This team is building a platform to deliver a world-class interface to our research, data, and other client experiences, in order to inform decisions at the world's largest investors and corporations. The team's suite of solutions provides innovative way for our clients to engage with our product and integrate our data into their workflows. This role will work directly on the portal, as well as related systems necessary to power it.

This is a remote-friendly opportunity that can sit in NYC, where our headquarters is located, or anywhere in the US (we expect Eastern work hours).

As a Software Engineer II you will:

  • Work together with a tech lead and product manager to build and release solutions
  • Maintain a code quality that sets an example for others
  • Architect solutions that will scale as the company continues to grow
  • Provide technical direction to less experienced members
  • Maintain documentation, be available for advice, and help drive the adoption of technology and good practices

As long as you've worked with a modern web framework, we're positive that you will learn our technology stack:

  • Django on the backend
  • React.js on the frontend
  • Amazon Web Services (CloudFormation, ECS, RDS, ElastiCache, SQS, S3, and many more)
  • PostgreSQL and Redis
  • Data analysis with Spark, Delta, and Airflow (Databricks)
  • Continuous integration and deployment with GitHub and CircleCI

You Are Likely To Succeed If:

  • You have 2+ years of experience as a full-stack web developer or front-end web developer
  • Experience with React.js
  • Nice to have experience with Python, TypeScript, SQL, AWS
  • You have strong verbal and written communication skills
  • You can develop new features and bugs fixes with minimal oversight
  • You are curious and learn quickly
  • You are interested in creating software to improve client experiences and outcomes
  • You enjoy working collaboratively in and supporting a small team

What We Offer:

  • Our compensation package includes equity and a highly competitive salary.
  • We care about your personal life. We offer flexible work hours, open vacation policy, a generous 401K match, parental leave, team events, wellness budget, learning reimbursement, and more.
  • Your growth at YipitData is determined by the impact that you are making, not by tenure, unnecessary facetime, or office politics. Everyone at YipitData is empowered to learn, self-improve, and master their skills in an environment focused on ownership, respect, and trust.
  • To learn more about our culture and values, check out our Glassdoor page.
  • For the Software Engineer II role, our salary range is $130K-160K (the final salary will be within that band and depend on your relevant experience).
