Team Lead - Platform

LeapYear's secure machine learning platform is deployed with some of the largest enterprises in the world across finance, healthcare, and technology.

Our technology ensures differential privacy, a widely recognized standard of data privacy which enables all data - including sensitive information - to be utilized for analytics, while providing mathematically proven privacy protection.

Working with Haskell and Spark, LeapYear's platform team builds the services and systems that allow our product to integrate with complex enterprise environments and operate effectively on our customer's most sensitive data.

We are looking for platform engineers that have a track record of developing enterprise-ready features for technical end users, including logging, auditing, authentication, access controls, rigorous security, flexible deployment, integrations, and support for diverse data sources.

As team lead, you will be a player-coach that writes code every day and drives critical architecture decisions. You'll also support your team with prioritization, planning, retrospectives, and mentoring, and work closely with executives from product management, solutions architecture, and operations.
