They use these insights to drive amazing progress within their organisations. Our mission is to provide access to dispersed, hidden, and underutilized knowledge.

We’ve made terrific progress working in this new space, but there is still an incredible amount to do. We’ve only just scratched the surface on how we can apply technology to this problem.

We’re looking for ambitious Front End, Back End, and Kotlin Engineers to join our team. AlphaSights' Engineers build features across our ecosystem of products, both internal and client facing. While our front end engineers are building pioneering web applications, on the edge of what is possible with today’s browsers, our back end engineers are removing pain points and optimising work flows.

You will:

  • Work closely with our Product Team to build features that have a significant business impact
  • Design elegant and intuitive UI components
  • Proactively identify and improve our front-end developer experience
  • Work in small, nimble teams
  • Understand our business context deeply and leverage your engineering knowledge to propose creative solutions to problems
  • Contribute to our open source projects

For a Front End role, you might be a fit if you:

  • Have 3+ years of industry experience
  • Solid understanding of JavaScript fundamentals
  • Understand the complexities of the DOM and CSS, especially how they interact
  • Interpret UI performance metrics and address issues accordingly
  • Know and understand the implications of the latest developments in ECMAScript
  • Navigate and write back end code where necessary
  • Interested in working in a team applying data science to solve challenging business problems

For a Back End role, you might be a fit if you:

  • Have 3+ years of industry experience
  • Are able to write code in a high-level programming language. We primarily work with Ruby but we also have some Python, Java, and Elixir in the stack
  • Can balance deep work with cross-team collaboration
  • Enjoy writing code in a variety of languages
  • See yourself as an entrepreneur as well as an engineer
  • Are interested in working in a team applying data science to solve challenging business problems

Who you would work with:

  • You would join a dynamic, multinational, and diverse team who enjoy solving interesting problems in a collaborative environment
  • We have self-taught engineers as well as graduates from top Computer Science and Engineering schools
  • Your co-workers will include motivated recent graduates as well as experienced industry leaders from companies such as Google and Amazon

Don't worry if your experience or background doesn't match all of these areas, we believe a broad spectrum of experience provides a great perspective on solving problems in new and innovative ways and we’d love to hear from you.
