The Role

Pachyderm is looking for a Python & JupyterHub developer to join our team that is building a data science platform.

You'll be working closely with our design & product team to implement new features. Your main task will be integrating Pachyderm with JupyterHub. You will also be part of the team working on several exciting integrations with other tools and platforms. As an early member of the team, you will have a ton of ownership and impact on the product direction. You'll be required to collaborate closely with other engineers and product leaders.

While your primary focus will be building the product, you’ll also have direct exposure to users and enterprise customers. At Pachyderm, open-source user and customer feedback is a major driver of our product roadmap and we believe that everyone within the company should experience that first-hand.

The long and short of it is, if you're looking to make a big impact on a small team that works on open source software and delivers an enterprise-grade product, then this role is for you. You can check out our product on GitHub.
