What we’ll expect from you once you’re here
We are looking for a mid- to senior-level Software Engineer to assist in the research into and development of a new Digital Services product line. You will be one of the first key hires for this new product line, so you will need to have strong technical and entrepreneurial skills in your approach to solving problems. Ideally, you will have experience at start-ups and early-stage companies. Our optimal candidate exhibits personal humility and strives to enable the success of their team in our collaborative and fast-moving work environment.
Research Square engineers and researchers have the freedom to innovate and uncover breakthroughs—and, in turn, influence our product roadmap. On the Digital Services team, we expect engineers to come up with their own experiments by working closely and getting feedback from the Product team, Designers, and Data Scientists. We also rely on individual contributors to drive the technical roadmap around things like performance, security, and the design of new systems.
