Job Description

Rise Science is looking to hire a Backend Developer who will be responsible to own all parts of the backend stack powering our product.
We're building a sleep coaching service with a focus on elite athletics teams. Currently working with pro and college sports teams.

Our stack is a combination of python with heavy-lifting statistical methods, with front-ends in iOS and AngularJS.

Our product depends on real-time collection of noisy biometric data, so we have an emphasis in developing internal tooling to help with monitoring and cleaning important data.

We have a variety of projects to work on, and likely all of them will be data heavy so some experience with basic statistics is important.

An ideal candidate would be familiar, and opinionated about some of these:
- Web app architectures, we use Django
- DevOps in Heroku, AWS with Ansible and fabric
- Postgres, Redis, S3 for storage, caching, queues
- Pragmatic QA processes to maintain product velocity without dropping the ball on quality
- Monitoring and alerting with Graphite and ELK
- Architecting data pipelines both for production and data science analysis

What We're Building

Rise tells you what to do to improve your sleep tonight based on science. We tie your improvement to the things you care most about.

We pioneered this approach with professional and collegiate teams across the NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS, NCAAF. Today companies from the Fortune 500 to Basecamp partner with Rise to unlock measurable improvements in the outcomes that matter including revenue, productivity, and retention.

We started Rise because we’re in the midst of an insufficient sleep epidemic (CDC, 2014) that is getting worse since we started tracking in 1985. The current epidemic is leading to higher mortality rates (Cappuccio, 2010) and we’re performing worse in nearly all aspects of life (RAND, 2016).

Today, most of us think of sleep as a luxury. Rise is creating a world where healthy sleep is standard. To achieve that vision we're building technology that allows everyone to engage in a lifelong practice of healthy sleep.
