We’re looking for a versatile backend and systems engineer to join us at Rasa.

About this role
This is a mix of software development, systems engineering, and devops. The core of your role is making sure our enterprise offering continues to meet our customers' high standards. You'll be looking for bottlenecks in the performance of our systems, and building scalable solutions for monitoring, fault tolerance, CI/CD, serving machine learning models. Our stack is scientific python, running in docker and orchestrated with kubernetes.

About you
You work well in a team and enjoy teaching and learning from others. You have a knack for writing clean code, and giving and receiving code reviews. You're comfortable being lean and running experiments quickly. You go and fix problems without waiting for someone to tell you to. You can effectively communicate what you’re working on, and why it matters, with non-technical team members.

Things You Might Do
Rasa is a startup, so you’ll have to be comfortable rolling up your sleeves and doing whatever needs doing. However, you can definitely expect to:

  • Design, build & test backend services
  • Implement solutions around deployment, error monitoring & uptime
  • Improve the scalability & performance of web applications & backend services
  • Build a better model parameter server for our deployed ML systems
  • Work on our open source projects

About Rasa

Rasa builds open source ML tools that enable developers to make conversational software that really works. By conversational software we mean voice control systems, VR, AR, IoT, virtual assistants, and yes, bots. Regexes and if/else statements only get you so far, and we’re building the tools for going beyond that using deep learning. Rasa is used by thousands of developers worldwide. Our customers include leading enterprises such as UBS, ERGO and Helvetia. We're based in Berlin, funded by Techstars and Salisbury Ventures.

Rasa is an equal opportunity employer. We are still a small team and are committed to growing in an inclusive manner. We want to augment our team with talented, compassionate people irrespective of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, physical or mental disability, or age.
