Storj is looking for an experienced Senior R&D Engineer to enable our Strategy team to create rapid prototypes of customer solutions with our product and do advance research and development of new capabilities. The position will report to our Chief Strategy Officer. While we don’t expect to you already be an expert in every technology we list, we are looking for people who have a demonstrated ability to learn, grow, understand requirements, and get stuff done.
The ideal candidate will be someone who can be a leader and an integral part of a unique, small, team with a very promising technology startup. We have a strong commitment to strategic and creative excellence, with a mix of large strategic projects and daily tactical projects. We are looking for someone with flexible and adaptable skills and relevant experience who enjoys:
Rapid prototype solutions and services for POCs, demos and projects
Research and development in partnership with product engineering to create new platform service or solution offerings
Create solutions leveraging Storj capabilities to address customer and partner needs.
Collaborate with internal subject matter experts and technical architects to devise client solutions.
Evaluate customer use cases, determine problem domain and create design solution documents.
Determine technical risk and issues and suggest mitigation options.
- Confer with customer, prospects and partners to collect requirements.
Being a global team, we rely heavily on video conferencing and group chat software. Most internal company communication happens through Slack (mostly GIFs) and/or Google Hangouts (we have computers dedicated to Google Hangouts).
We host weekly lunch-and-learns where an engineer will present on or train other engineers on some interesting topic. We do quarterly innovation weeks where developers are encouraged to spend a week and build exciting new products of their own creation, independent from existing roadmaps. All of our code goes through code review before getting merged, which is a wonderful opportunity to help engineers learn things they might not know and improve their skills.
All employees are offered excellent benefits including healthcare, dental, vision, and equity.
The interview process will require that you demonstrate the ability to solve problems with programming via a paid off-site homework problem where we give you a representative problem and ask you to solve it.
We would love to have you join us!
