Passionate about sports and social media? Do you find yourself staring off into the night sky wondering if Pizza Hut would have sponsored Harford Whalers if it would have saved the franchise? Working at Blinkfire Analytics could be for you!

Our best candidates come to our interviews and show us examples of things they have built and walk through the details of how they built it. Can you do the same?

We're looking for the right person to make our source code grow and thrive in its best state possible. Here's your opportunity to make a stand in the entrepreneurship world with Blinkfire Analytics, Inc, working with state-of-the-art technologies to build a challenging product that deals with big data, computer vision, social networks and every major sport you know. Sounds like fun to you? You'll have to wear a lot of hats here, but here's a few of the things we'll expect:
You are passionate about software development with solid, high quality coding skills. You write scalable, maintainable, efficient and well documented code.
Skills for a full stack development from the database all the way to the browser.
A thorough understanding of software Design Patterns and Agile methodologies. It is completely natural for you to produce a development sprint from the planning meeting and sprint backlog to the retrospective.
You find your way to get things done always considering the trade-off between the technical debt and a goal-oriented approach.

It would be extremely helpful if you have:
Experience with NoSQL Databases, data piplelines, MapReduce, scaling large systems
Good knowledge of web standards, HTML5 and progressive enhancement.
Years of experience in MVC frameworks like Django, Rails, Symphony or similar.
You are comfortable using Git and collaborating with team members.
Angular, Vue.js, JQuery, Python
Expertise in Computer Vision, Pattern Matching Algorithms
Bachelors or Masters Degree in Computer Science or similar engineering degree
