Job description

Summary

causaLens are the pioneers of Causal AI — a giant leap in machine intelligence.

We build Causal AI-powered products that are trusted by leading organizations across a wide range of industries. Our Causal AI Platform empowers all types of users to make superior decisions through intuitive user interfaces and apis that adapt to their level of technical expertise. We are creating a world in which humans can trust machines with the greatest challenges in the economy, society, and healthcare.


We are looking for motivated and high-achieving Fullstack Software Engineers, based in London, to join our Product team in building a platform to optimise every business on the planet. We are a mission-driven, interdisciplinary team with an inclusive culture building technology that improves our world. This is a full-time placement with significant opportunities for growth in a rapidly expanding team.


Roles and Responsibilities

As a Senior Full Stack Engineer, you will be involved with the product at all stages of development, from initial conception of a feature all the way to being deployed to our customers. You should have strong technical and communication skills and should want to take ownership of what you are building. Senior hires will be expected to push forwards their own ideas as well as be comfortable mentoring and coaching junior members of the team.


What You’ll Be Working On

You will be expected to work across our application stack and be willing to learn any areas which you do not already have experience with. Our primary languages are Python for backend and machine learning code and Typescript + React for our frontends.

Our platform is cloud agnostic and is deployed using docker. Familiarity with cloud services and setting up docker is desirable. Outside this, some of the other technologies we work with include: Postgres, TimescaleDB, Redis, Ansible, FastAPI, Pydantic, Apache Arrow, RecoilJS and D3.

Job requirements

  • Candidates would ideally have 2 years professional experience
  • Development experience in at least one scripting language - preferably Python or Javascript

  • Experience with React or similar frameworks (VueJS, AngularJS)

  • Understanding of the full stack is preferable (REST backends and SPA frontends)

  • Strong Knowledge of the software development lifecycle (code review, version control, tooling, testing, etc.)

  • Ideally you should be able to work in London or be able to commute. Candidates outside of London who are interested in relocating will be considered.


Nice to Haves

  • Interest in DevOps and cloud infrastructure

  • Interest in scientific data visualization is a plus and any experience with visualisation libs, such as d3, would be very valuable.

  • Interest in machine learning (prior experience is a plus)

  • Interest in data pipelines and processing large (>100GB) datasets


The Company

Current machine learning approaches have severe limitations when applied to real world business problems and fail to unlock the true potential of AI for the enterprise. causaLens is pioneering Causal AI, a new category of intelligent machines that understand cause and effect - a major step towards true artificial intelligence. Our enterprise platform goes beyond predictions and provides causal insights and suggested actions that directly improve business outcomes for leading businesses in asset management, banking, insurance, logistics, retail, utilities, energy, telecommunications and many others.
