Junior Software Engineer

About this position

Luminoso is seeking a Junior Software Engineer to join the team that develops our flagship Daylight product. Our software has some powerful natural language processing and machine learning science at its core, and we're currently focusing on building out a richer feature set that will make this science more easily accessible to our users. Projects you might work on include supporting the development of richer data visualization tools for our UI, adding more guided workflows in the UI to improve useability, making our API cleaner and more consistent, and improving our infrastructure to make our product more performant and scalable.

This is a full stack development position, so you should expect to be doing work on both our Python backend and our browser-based JavaScript (React) frontend.

For this role, we value an individual who:

● is a self-directed learner and enjoys finding your way around new tools and environments

● enjoys collaborating, communicating, and sharing your knowledge with others

● gets excited about going into gnarly old code to make it easier to work with

Any experience with test driven development, refactoring, pair programming, or mob programming will really set you apart!


● Write clean, well-tested Python code

● Write clean, well-tested JavaScript code

● Effectively implement designs in HTML and CSS

● Work with business stakeholders to identify and refine new features

● Incrementally improve the architecture of the Daylight application through refactoring and design discussions with the team

● Collaborate closely with other developers through pair programming, mob programming, and pull request review

● Help the entire team improve continuously through weekly sprint retrospectives


We require basic working knowledge of the following:

● JavaScript

● React

● Python 3

We don't require you to have experience with the rest of our tool stack, but other tools we use include:
