You have 5+ years of building and improving search systems (ElasticSearch, Solr), and competency in our tech stack (Python). You also understand web service architecture well enough to diagnose performance bottlenecks and propose a variety of remedies. Not only do you bring a passion for data science, but you're intensely curious and humble in the face of new information. You naturally seek out creative ways of measuring success, and meet contradictions in the data with the excitement of someone who knows they’re about to learn something new, not the resignation of someone who’s worried about being wrong.
You know how to find a shared language between product managers, data scientists, and software developers. You balance your engineering expertise with a product mindset, always digging for the underlying user and system needs, rather than simply settling for surface-level “requirements.” Your passion for complex technical problems is matched by your excitement to lead a team through large, multi-faceted technical projects. You can seamlessly distinguish and delegate responsibilities, set success criteria for projects, and coach teammates with a high level of organizational awareness to ensure each team member is growing and developing professionally.
