At AlphaSights, we search through more than 500 million professionals working in the world today to find the small handful of experts qualified to answer our clients needs. They use these insights to drive amazing progress within their organizations. Our mission is to provide access to dispersed, hidden, and underutilized knowledge.

We’ve made terrific progress working in this new space, but there is still an incredible amount of work to do. We’ve only just scratched the surface on how we can apply technology to this problem.

AlphaSights' Engineers build features across our ecosystem of products and services, both internal and client facing. As a Fullstack engineer you will remove pain-points, optimize workflows, and enhance the intelligence and capabilities of our systems. You'll work closely with a variety of people in the business to arrive at the best solution, immediately see the impact of your work, and get feedback directly from users.  You should feel comfortable making changes on the front end, as well as implementing the supporting backend logic.

We're looking for people who are interested in building software systems to an incredibly high standard, comfortable working across multiple languages, and learn quickly when new technologies are introduced.

We care more about your engineering skill versus your deep knowledge of a particular language or framework.

You will:

  • Build and technically own large areas of our product and service ecosystem
  • Improve the performance of our applications
  • Improve developer tooling and processes
  • Work in small, nimble teams
  • Understand our business context deeply and leverage your engineering knowledge to propose creative solutions to problems

You might be a fit if you:

Don't worry if your experience or background doesn't match all of these areas, we believe a broad spectrum of experience provides a great perspective on solving problems in new and innovative ways and we’d love to hear from you.

  • Have at least 3 years of professional development experience
  • Are an expert in at least two programming languages.  Kotlin, Javascript (React), or Java experience would be a plus.
  • Enjoy mentoring other team members, including code reviews and tech talks
  • Can balance deep work with cross-team collaboration
  • Constantly learn from and mentor other engineers
  • See yourself as an entrepreneur as well as an engineer
  • Are interested in working in a team applying data science to solve challenging business problems
  • Previous remote working experience is a plus

You might work on:

  • Building and scaling the platform that manages our ever-increasing crowdsourced workforce.
  • Propose and deliver a new product initiative to production
  • Democratize data within the organization
  • Optimizing and scaling our overall platform architecture
  • Build tools to schedule multi-party communication with heavy constraints
  • Help pick and define our tools

Who you would work with:

  • You would join a dynamic, multinational, and diverse team who enjoy solving interesting problems in a collaborative environment
  • We have self-taught engineers as well as graduates from top Computer Science and Engineering schools
  • Your co-workers will include motivated recent graduates as well as experienced industry leaders from companies such as Google and Amazon

An Insider's view of AlphaSights

What are some social events your company does?

The Software Engineering team celebrates our successes with monthly team events, such as team dinners, "Beat the Bomb", Sofar Sounds concerts, drinks, etc. We also have an annual team-wide international off-site to bond with our colleagues across the globe. Last year we all met in Lisbon for a long weekend of fun activities.

Manor Lev-Tov

Director of Data Science

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

The majority of our users are internal, so we enjoy working closely with many different teams to understand their needs and ideas. We have direct access to feedback and insights that drive our success and encourage us to get creative and try new things.

Leanne Lyons

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Our team loves learning from each other whether it’s through paired programming, going to/giving tech talks, or sharing the latest tech on Slack. We facilitate our engineers growth by providing a conference and learning budget, active mentoring, and enabling our devs to spend 10% of their time on sandbox days pursuing passion projects.

Kevin Lester

Vice President of Software Engineering

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Innovation often means allowing for failure, so we maintain a culture of openness to ideas, no matter how far-fetched. Our team reserves a "Sandbox Day" every iteration, giving time to experiment with new technology and implement new features. Engineering is a mix of discipline and creativity, and Sandbox Days bring out the best of both.

Heath Hohwald

Chief Technology Officer

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The agency that people have to make their own mark on the company stands out to me. At AlphaSights, you define what you want to work on and what you think will be impactful at an earlier stage in your career. This autonomy fosters an energetic environment where people feel safe to create and try new things.

Tricia Maia

Director of Product
