We are looking for intermediate to senior developers to help build our semantic recommender system. We’re a well-funded startup based in London, and are looking to grow our dev team in Cape Town. We work remotely, and will provide office space for meetings and those who prefer to have a dedicated work environment.
We use Python as our general-purpose language, Clojure for the core domain, RDF and SPARQL for semantic components, Elasticsearch for indexing, and are working on machine learning algorithms with the help of world-leading academics and an in-house data scientist. We’re combining these technologies (on an event-based append-only data pipeline) into a SaaS platform that understands not only what content is about, but also how humans learn and explore ideas. And we’d love your help.
You would be responsible for building and maintaining well-tested, virtualised production services and event handlers in Clojure and Python. You’d work with educationalists, data scientists and experts in machine learning and semantic technology to build API services that provide content analysis, recommendation, search and exploration for educational content providers, non-fiction publishers and a variety of Edtech platforms.
Contract : Permanent/Full time
Location : Cape Town, South Africa (Remote work possible)
