We are dscout. At our core, we are People Nerds. We empower our customers to meet the people who matter to them in the moments that matter most. Customer-obsessed companies and agencies like Lyft, Nike, IDEO, and REI use dscout to build better products and services because of people like you. We are building a smart and driven team in our Chicago HQ, and we would love for you to join us.
We’re looking for smart, creative, driven Software Engineers to build great software with us. You've worked for multiple years in product development as an engineer, creating and launching new technologies and products. You love to write code, striving to make it better with each commit. You're familiar with cloud-based, SaaS focused modern APIs and front-ends. You are hands-on and self-directed.
At our core, the dscout platform is an Elixir application and GraphQL API (converted from a Ruby/Rails application and REST API), backed by a PostgreSQL DB, and hosted in Heroku. 8 years and 30K commits later, we've maintained a tidy code base that is well documented and battle tested from hundreds of thousands of users. Also of note: we have just released dscout Live, our video interview tool using Twilio / WebRTC / Websockets.
Product experience professionals use dscout to build, field and analyze user research with our API driven React.js app with Apollo (GraphQL). Scouts (research participants) share in-context moments from our native mobile apps on iOS and Android.
If you are excited about the challenge of building an incredible Engineering team, we are excited to hear from you!
