We're a team of scientists, technologists, and disaster experts on a mission to help protect the world from flood risk and save lives.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Company

Cloud to Street is the world’s leading remote flood mapping platform. We use global satellites and remote sensing AI to monitor flood risk and detect worldwide floods in real-time. Seeded by Google, we have been used by governments across almost 20 countries for disaster relief efforts. Partnering with top insurers, we are now launching the first commercial parametric flood insurance product to better protect climate-vulnerable communities.

Role

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to lead frontend and backend web development on our flood analytics dashboard. As part of a small engineering team, you will provide key input on technical design decisions and participate in a diversity of engineering tasks.

Who You Are

  • 3+ years of experience as a software engineer working in a team environment
  • Bachelor's in computer science or equivalent experience
  • Experience in full-stack web development in e.g., React/Flask or similar
  • Experience managing and deploying cloud infrastructure in e.g., GCP or AWS
  • Excellent in Python and JavaScript, comfortable in many programming languages
  • Strong opinions on software design choices with awareness of tradeoffs, and an eagerness to use engineering to reduce the impact of catastrophic flooding

Responsibilities

  • Design and develop features for our web-based flood analytics dashboard (FastAPI/Angular) to support crisis managers around the world in disaster preparedness and response
  • Provide key input in technical discussions and code reviews for engineers across the company
  • Depending on your interest, you may also develop and maintain the cloud infrastructure to support our products

To Apply

Accepting applications until April 16, 2021.

Send resume hiring@cloudtostreet.info with Senior Software Engineer in the subject line. Applications will be open until April 16th, with the goal of hiring the right candidate as soon as possible.

Cloud to Street is devoted to building an inclusive and diverse company. Black, Indigenous, and people of color; women, queer people, and all gender identities, and individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

Being a relatively small team, we give everyone project ownership to be able to lead and grow themselves with the support from expertise of the rest of the team while directly contributing to the company products and services.

By organizing around projects rather than a strictly hierarchical workplace, it allows everyone to work with people in many different parts of the company (science, engineering, business, customer support) to be able to learn from the various expertise, as well as directly contribute to the work culture of the company.

Our structure, therefore, also ensures that everyone’s voice is heard when making decisions at various levels. We set personal goals in addition to company goals, and combined with the fast-paced learning environment ensures that individuals grow their skills in the direction they want, and allows for rapid promotion and mobility within the company that does not happen at many, particularly large, companies.

Cloud to Street is also a mission-driven company, striving to serve those who are most vulnerable to disasters with the least ability to recover, which is the main factor in decision making at the company.

Underrepresented folks in tech should consider us if they want to build state-of-the-art technology that serves vulnerable people around the world, collaborate with a group of exceptionally talented individuals, help define the culture at a rapidly growing startup, and learn hard and soft skills at a rapid pace that will accelerate your career trajectory.
