At source{d} we are building the data platform that enables engineering leaders & teams to use source code as data for getting insights on their people, processes and technology—as well as feeding sophisticated Machine Learning on code algorithms which power the next generation of developer tooling, as assisted code review. We are an open-core company built around our Open Source projects. We have raised over eight million USD so far and as we develop our products and expand our business, we are currently looking to grow our team.

About the Role:

• As an Applications team engineer you will have a two-fold role: on one hand it's a Data Engineering, building production-level pipelines to collect and extract data from all the git repositories in the world. On the another hand it's applied Machine Learning, by productionizing Machine Learning research and delivering it as part of end-user applications.
• You will be expected to have strong backend coding skills in at least one programming language and very good algorithmic skills. Scala coding skills and knowledge about Apache Spark aren't required but will be highly appreciated.
• Building tools for day to day use by software engineers require good understanding of modern development processes and approaches: Unit/Integration testing, scrum, code reviews, CI/CD, Containers, etc.
• As you will be working closely with the Machine Learning team - strong communication skills and interest in Machine Learning, data process, and visualization are more than welcome.
• You will deal with models built using modern ML stacks written in Python and C++ such as Tensorflow, Tensorboard, CUDA, so familiarity with any of those tools is a plus.

Engineering at source{d}

Engineering consists of five different teams that represent the architecture of our product:

• Applications (Scala, Go, Python, and Frontend tools): Builds CLI/Web applications combining ML research with our stack.
• Machine Learning (C++ and Python): Performs R&D for Machine Learning on Source Code.
• Data Retrieval (Scala and Go): Builds the technology that finds, fetches, stores and analyzes over +60M Git repositories.
• Language Analysis (Go and another +15): Focused on Babelfish, the universal code parsing server.
• Infrastructure (Go and Python): Manages a cluster of on-prem bare metal servers with Kubernetes and CoreOS, and GCP for user facing applications.

We care about Open Source. Everything we develop is available for anyone to read, modify, and contribute (under Apache 2.0 or GPL3 license). Some examples of our projects are:

• bblfsh/bblfshd: Babelfish server, turning code into Universal Abstract Syntax Trees (UASTs).
• src-d/community edition: a library for running scalable data retrieval pipelines that process any number of Git repositories for source code analysis.
• src-d/go-git: a highly extensible Git implementation in pure Go.
• src-d/hercules: Git repositories analysis framework with batteries, built on top of go-git and UASTs.
