Senior Software Engineer

At 12traits we believe the path to a better future lies in unlocking the true potential of humankind. We do this through harmonizing human behavior data with psychological trait sets, leveraging a multitude of scientifically valid data perspectives that allow us to understand human beings more deeply and sustainably than ever before: ushering in a new era of personalized experiences, starting in gaming, optimized for human potential and health.

Elevating the human experience is at the core of everything we do. That core is realized through our human-touching machine learning algorithms, our unparalleled understanding of a user within any given environment, and our ability to personalize experiences in real time through integrations with various platforms and tools. 

As a software engineer, you’ll work closely with data science, frontend, as well as UX design and research to create large-scale real-time data ingestion systems and triggering actions and personalized adaptations to actualize the potential derived from combining some of the richest behavioral data sets available with cognitive data. You'll not only get to push your own boundaries, but the boundaries of artificial intelligence.


WHAT YOU WILL OWN AND DRIVE
  • Build APIs and different integrations to ingest vast amounts of unstructured behavioral as well as contextual data to fuel our machine learning algorithm (exemplary data sources: Unity, Unreal,  PlayFab, Google Adwords, Twitter, Reddit)
  • Build a highly scalable system that allows for real-time data processing
  • Build a development roadmap for ensuing product generations
  • Incorporate the latest findings from machine learning and psychological research into a working system
 

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING TO THE TABLE
  • 4+ years of practical backend development or data engineering experience
  • Proven track record of leveraging modern infrastructure and tools (e.g. Kubernetes, Docker, AWS) and large-scale data processing technologies (e.g. SQL, Hadoop, Spark)
  • Exceptional command of Go and/or Python
  • Strong background in building APIs, integrating with BI and data-processing systems
  • Demonstrated DevOps experience
  • A solid understanding of data analysis / data science
  • A portfolio of activities / a side project that showcases your intellectual curiosity


WHAT MAKES YOU STAND OUT
  • Demonstrated ability to build, lead, and scale engineering teams as well as product development in a fast-paced, startup environment
  • Solid experience with Java, C++, or C# considered a plus
  • Familiarity with (mobile) gaming frameworks such as Unity, Unreal Engine, Marmalade SDK, GameMaker Studio, SpriteKit, CryEngine
  • Familiarity with and interest in psychometric data
 

HOW WE WILL SUPPORT YOU
  • The opportunity to shape a ground-breaking and important idea from the early days 
  • A high level of ambition combined with a clear vision
  • Highly motivated and experienced team with the relevant domain expertise and networks
  • A competitive compensation package with a significant equity share
  • Support for training and personal development
  • The opportunity to work in an international team in the US and Europe
