Web Application Engineer

at Panjiva in Cambridge, MA   —   Jul 23, 2014   |  
Overview
Panjiva is a venture-backed start-up that is seeking to transform global trade. Over the last four years, we have built the premier intelligence service for sourcing teams. Today, we maintain a searchable database of a million suppliers across 190 countries & virtually every supplier that serves the U.S. market. In the last two years, sourcing teams at over 1,500 companies (including over 25 Fortune 500 companies) have begun using Panjiva to find new suppliers. Over a million people use Panjiva’s free site every month. We are positioned to play a key role in connecting buyers and suppliers around the world, but we need your help to seize the moment.

We’re a small team of mostly MIT computer science grads who like hacking on business models and products as much as machine learning algorithms and browser-bending javascript. We’re a bunch of generalists who work on the entire stack; a given day’s checkins may include performance tweaks to our backend data processing pipeline, an updated multivariate landing page test, a parsing expression grammar for a new data source, upgrades to our deployment infrastructure to make better use of our CDN, or new parallelizing queries to make Panjiva search faster. Most of us have started companies before (one who co-founded a venture-backed company that was sold to VMware; another was a co-founder of a YCombinator company), love programming (one of our engineers has a lambda calculus tattoo), and enjoy discussing all aspects of the business and how our work impacts the global economy. Our development environment is highly collaborative, and we all teach as much as we learn. We launch new code many times a day, and have a lot of fun doing it. We are committed to building a cutting-edge company that is a place where engineers love to work.

Responsibilities
We are seeking exceptional software engineers with a track record in building scalable, highly sophisticated web applications to play a leading role in Panjiva’s evolution.

Your work will be used by millions of people from every country in the world, and by some of the largest (and smallest) companies in the world. We need hands-on hackers—not managers—but our ideal candidates have the potential to grow into a strong leadership role over time.
