About the Company

CognitionX is on a mission to democratise access to knowledge to empower everybody from start-ups to governments, and from individuals to enterprises.

We achieve this in two ways:

1.) CognitionX.com, our cloud-based knowledge-management platform, is unlocking hidden and untapped sources of knowledge in enterprises and communities around the world. By connecting people to the knowledge within their organisation they didn’t know existed, we aim to enable faster and better decisions, reduce costs, and maximise innovative potential.

2) CogX is our festival of technology, AI and business that takes place in London every June. With 20,000 visitors in 2019, CogX brings together industry, government and academia to meet and discuss the impact AI and emerging technology is having on business, the economy and society. We are committed to galvanising the tech community to address the UN Development Goals and move the conversation forward about ethical and responsible adoption of these news tools.

About the Role

- We are looking for backend engineers with strong experience building modern web apps using Python and Django.
- We use GitHub, code reviews, Heroku, and Amazon RDS so that we can rapidly iterate and stay focussed on what matters. We’ve worked hard to keep our processes and management structure as lightweight as possible.
- We are open to applicants ranging from junior with a lot of potential, to Seniors who are looking to apply their existing expertise to complex problems, and all levels in between. The package will be based on a combination of your experience, expertise and potential.

Experience and Qualifications

Essential knowledge & skills:
- Strong knowledge of Python and its ecosystem
- Track record of delivering Django web apps
- Experience designing and building RESTful APIs
- A good knowledge of git/github
- Continuous deployment/integration (e.g. CodeShip)

It would be really great if you also had an understanding of:
- Search technologies (e.g. Algolia, Elasticsearch)
- Operations/DevOps experience
- AWS (e.g. EC2, S3, Lambda)
- AI/ML techniques
- Frontend development, including Javascript, React, Redux

And if you've published or contributed to any open-source software, then tell us about it!
