Who we are:
NewsWhip is the leading technology for identifying and tracking the stories that matter in the world each day. We track millions of signals produced every day from social networks that reveal the articles, events, and people driving discussion and engagement.
Our customers include media leaders, agencies, Fortune 500 companies, political consultants, and governments. Our financial backers include the world’s leading news agency, The Associated Press.
Who we’re looking for:
We’re looking for a talented engineer to help us build the defining technology for showing what stories and events matter each day, in every language and category of content.
Our application tech stack is built on top of Scala and Java. We use Elasticsearch, Cassandra, MySQL, Redis, and Kafka for storage. Our frontend makes use of Angular, D3 and Highcharts to present useful insights from complex datasets for our customers. Everything is deployed on AWS, and we make use of hosted services where applicable.
What you’ll do:
You will work in a team of product owners, UI/UX designers and backend developers to build products that our customers will love to use. As part of this team, you will be involved in all areas of product development lifecycle, from deciding what to build, given an understanding of customer needs, to pushing features into production.
The successful candidate will have experience in executing rapidly from concept to completion. They will have good communication skills and be ready to get to work in our fast-moving startup environment. An inherent curiosity for what we do and the technologies we use is imperative.
You’ll also collaborate in decisions on our platform direction, build an understanding of what we can do, and how we can push out the limits of what NewsWhip’s technology is capable of. You’ll have the opportunity to take ownership of full segments of the NewsWhip architecture.
Ideally, you’ll have the following:
- Experience using D3.js or similar
- Experience developing interactive, dynamic applications using AJAX and JSON
- Ability to create interactive visualisations / dashboards
- Experience creating responsive designs
- Obsessive about page load time, minimal code, UI performance
- Scala and Play framework
- Experience developing data heavy interfaces
We understand it can be difficult to tick all the boxes, so we’re keen on talking to people who are eager to learn and develop in these areas.
- Competitive salary
- Bonus for individual performance
- Great working environment in Dublin’s city centre
- An opportunity to help define an entire new industry category
- Excellent opportunity to grow in one of Dublin’s fastest growing home-grown companies
