We started Deepnote to solve the most difficult data science problems. But in order to do that, we don't just need better algorithms, bigger datasets, and more computing power. We need powerful tools that help us to reason, experiment, and collaborate. These tools do not exist yet. We need to invent them first.
Who are we looking for?
Even though thousands of people are already using Deepnote at universities, research centers and top tech companies, we are still at the beginning of what's possible.
As a small team, we're looking for people who are ready to take ownership of big projects. We are looking for people who don't get lost when solving problems they've never encountered before. We are looking for people who never stop learning.
Full Stack Engineers
We're looking for brilliant Full Stack Engineers who want to work on the most difficult software engineering problems. Your responsibilities will range from gathering user feedback to writing beautiful and performant code. You'll become an expert in the data science tooling and we'll trust you to make the call which technologies we use and which features we implement.
It's great if you have experience building things in TypeScript and React. We use Node and Kubernetes on the backend, Postgres and Redis as our data stores, and Figma to design prototypes. We are looking for engineers who aim for the highest standards by thinking about features beyond the code.
You'll be joining as one of the first Infrastructure Engineers in the company. Your responsibilities will range from developing services that handle workflows of thousands of users. You'll be scaling our K8s cluster and encountering challenges that haven't been solved before. You'll often find yourself working with the latest cutting-edge features of Docker and K8s and you'll have your say in the choice of technologies we use and the features we implement.
We like to keep our infrastructure elegant and simple, but there are many hard problems that make us experiment with lots of stuff. It's great if you have experience building things with TypeScript, Node, Kubernetes, Postgres, and Redis but it's fundamental that you have a good understanding of distributed systems and systems architecture and can make good decisions between requirements and complexity.
Head of Community / Data Science Advocate
At Deepnote, we believe that community-led companies are the future. As our Head of Community, you will be responsible for developing a coherent community strategy that bridges our product, team and users and establishes the presence of Deepnote in the broader data science community. You will set the tone of our company voice. Here are some of the things you will be working on:
- Community management - Building and nurturing relationships with Deepnote users and data science communities beyond our user base, creating a safe and inclusive space for them to learn and engage. This includes both managing our online community space (hosted on Circle), and connecting with our users in person (e.g., organizing meetups and company events, attending industry conferences).
- Growth & marketing - Designing and developing events and content that engages our users and attracts new audiences (e.g., Twitch streams, reading groups, community updates, article showcases, social media posts), in close collaboration with our Growth manager.
- Education & content development - Contributing to the content strategy, working closely with our Data science content creators to build compelling content that helps our users succeed using Deepnote, whether they are beginners, students, hobbyists or data science professionals.
- Community space improvements - You will own the online community space as a product, and take it to the next level by creating and automating badges, linking the Deepnote product with community space, etc. Basically making users feel at home and improving their experience across the product and the community platform.
We expect our future Head of Community to have excellent communication skills, experience with working with data (in Python) and an interest in content creation and marketing. Experience with building communities at scale is helpful, but not required. This position is suitable for a person with data science skills passionate about community-building, or the other way around - an experienced developer advocate / community manager looking to grow their data science skills.
What is it like to work at Deepnote?
We believe in our mission and we know there's no better place for us to execute on it. Your impact will be visible from day one. You'll work with people who are smart and motivated, but also kind. We expect the same from you.
As a startup, we heavily optimize for the execution speed and learning. You don't need an approval to make a decision.
We are remote-friendly, with largest hubs in the beautiful cities of Prague and San Francisco, strategically located near delicious ice cream shops.
