What will you be working on?
At Hivemind we're building a cloud-hosted SaaS platform that enables clients to solve complicated data problems using a combination of computational methods and distributed human intelligence. We see this "man and machine" approach as the key to providing a flexible, tractable and powerful solution to a range of data collection and management problems found in all data-driven organisations.
In particular we specialise in producing valuable, accurate and structured data sets from messy, heterogeneous or unstructured sources and in embedding human knowledge and intuition into systematic data processes. In other words, we're working on how to make human understanding, machine readable.
We’re a friendly and communicative team, dedicated to high standards and a lightweight development process. We’re looking for motivated engineers to join us at a time of exciting expansion and development for the product and for the company at large.
Roles and responsibilities of an engineer at Hivemind
Your role will be to work alongside our exceptional data science and engineering teams to improve and evolve the user interfaces of our SaaS platform. Our platform was originally built as an internal tool within a quantitative investment management company, and you will take a leading role as we continue the process of redesigning it to be more user-friendly and appropriate for a broader, less technical client base.
The role involves taking ownership of the development of new features, demonstrating them to peers and relevant teams across the company, accepting feedback, and iterating as necessary.
You will join a team of engineers who share ideas, responsibility, and credit for delivering a great platform to our clients. You will be an early hire into a team and company which is expanding rapidly and you’ll play an important part in shaping that growth.
We are looking to work with an engineer who is passionate about what they do and ready to tackle challenges in collaboration with the team and clients. They should demonstrate the ability to maintain high code standards and to think innovatively, both when solving technical problems and in shaping the vision for the platform.
A great candidate will have:
Passion for UX and design
Experience of front-end web development in a SaaS business environment or equivalent
Great communication skills with both technical and non-technical team
