Come join us.

 

Empirical is a well funded, early-stage MIT startup located in Kendall Square, Cambridge. We offer a competitive benefits package including salary, equity, parental leave, and matching 401k with low-cost index funds. We welcome candidates from diverse and non-traditional backgrounds.

Our team learns together and from each other as we develop cutting-edge AI technology to serve customers across a wide range of domains. We value collaboration, cooperation, and communication, as well as work/life balance.

We need people with a passion for data science and learning new things. Help us make Empirical accessible to everyone who wants to learn truth from data.

Openings

 

Front End Engineer

Our Front End Engineers do some combination of the following:

  • Create beautiful and usable interfaces for understanding the implications of data
  • Build general-purpose interactive data visualization, including standard and new types of plots, using AI assistance to help people find the right visualizations
  • Focus on interaction and collaboration, encouraging users to annotate, improve, share, and discuss their data, models, and visualizations

Our technology stack is JavaScript (TypeScript, Vue, Vega) on the front end, Python for serving/integration, and C++ for numerical computing. We’re seeking experienced software engineers with a passion for learning and mathematics. Our engineers must be motivated to learn new things about both software and our customers’ domains, as our work is necessarily multidisciplinary.
 
Our ideal candidate has experience in some of the following:

  • User interface design (browser and interactive command-line/REPL)
  • Mathematics (applied statistics, probability, integral calculus, and Bayesian analysis)
  • Systems engineering
  • Numeric programming
