What our Software Engineers do

  • Functional-reactive applications
  • Domain-specific languages and compilers
  • Parsing laws from heterogeneous sources
  • Collaborating with our Knowledge Engineering team to research and design new product lines

What we’re looking for

  • A high degree of curiosity with the ability to ask thoughtful questions and solve challenging problems
  • The capacity to envision a variety of solutions and to clearly articulate them and explain the trade-offs
  • The ability to use functional programming to design simple and elegant solutions
  • A collaborative mind-set that enjoys working with others and knowledge sharing to achieve the best results
  • An eagerness to give and receive feedback in an open team atmosphere to better the overall result
  • Practical experience with a functional language such as Clojure, Scheme, Common LISP or Haskell

Any of the following would be an added benefit

  • Experience using a RDBMS such as Postgres
  • Experience Building React applications and RESTful APIs
  • Experience with proof assistants
