What is it like in engineering at Genus AI

First and foremost we want to be proud of our team, the work we do together, to learn from one another and set an example and be driving force in AI application in positive ways.

We follow Gall's Law when we build systems - start simple and gradually improve. We build systems that are not algorithmically pure, but easy to change, adapt and improve. We are fans of "Choose Boring First" approach and try to be smart about the technologies we pick.

We are optimizing our engineering towards sustainable speed. We encourage the release of small iterative changes, that are fast to review and verify. This gives us a significant speed in trying out various ideas and getting feedback fast.

We review everything that goes into production, both to improve the quality of our code and to share knowledge. We use a subtly different review workflow that contributes a lot to our productivity and speed.

We automate things when it makes the most sense.

In all of the above, we strive to be keep a high-security standard. We use a set of tools to automate compliance checks. We do regular software upgrades, review our software dependencies and regularly organise pen-testing. We enforce good basic cybersecurity hygiene wherever possible and expect every team member to support this.

Languages, Frameworks and Tools you will encounter at Genus AI

Most of our codebase is written in Python (3.6+). A basic understanding and ability to follow PHP and/or Java code would be a plus. We understand that languages can be learnt, therefore we are more interested in your engineering ability.

Our infrastructure is built on top of AWS and we use CloudFormation for Infrastructure-as-a-Code, and Ansible with custom plugins for automation.

We use Phabricator for most of our engineering and product workflows.

We use Django 2 with MariaDB as our platform backend.

We use Jinja2 templates and vanilla JavaScript for the simple front-end side. We are in the process of transitioning this to a modern JavaScript based web application.

We use Jupyterlab with Python, Scikit-learn, Tensorflow and for data science workloads. As we plan on doing more R&D there is an opportunity for validating any other cutting edge ML tools and frameworks.
