Lead Back-end Engineer at Metopio

Location: Chicago and Temporarily Remote

Job Type: Full-Time

Description: Metopio’s mission is to expand data literacy and equity to encourage fact-based decisionmaking, especially for our core clientele of people without advanced technical skills. We do this through a suite of data visualization tools that are powered by a fast, accurate, and powerful analytics engine. You can help us build this engine! We are a rapidly growing analytics startup that makes it ridiculously easy to explore places around the country, discover insights, and plan meaningful actions. Our platform lets users ask a question like “How does Chattanooga, Tennessee stand out in terms of health outcomes?” and get a detailed response with infographics (“It ranks poorly in cardiovascular and respiratory health”). Users can then visualize the data in shareable maps, charts, and scatterplots. We believe that web platforms can provide analytics comparable to dedicated statistical software while being far easier to use. We are looking for an experienced Lead Engineer to work on all aspects of our infrastructure and back-end platform. You will be in a high-visibility position integral to Metopio’s success, reporting directly to the Product Lead and mentoring other engineers. You will be responsible for: • Scaling our database and hosting environment • Improving and building out security infrastructure • Maintaining and expanding our internal API • Integrating new analytics models and tools • Interfacing with front-end engineers to provide views and API endpoints they need • Overseeing other engineers working on the back-end • Participating in discussions about future directions for the platform • Any other responsibilities that arise as we grow this role with you This is a full-time job (40 hours/week) with semi-flexible hours. We provide competitive compensation with equity options and very high growth potential. We have an open, transparent culture that esteems diversity of background and mindset, and you will be a core part of the team. You will be working on a codebase that has grown organically over several years, so there will be a lengthy period of hands-on training. This position is 100% remote for the time being, but you must reside in the United States and ideally Chicago.
