MarketMuse is a decision support system for online marketers. Using machine learning (semantic content analysis), we analyze a website and identify topical gaps in their content.
Our infrastructure is written mostly in Scala (Play Framework), with some Java components. We're looking for someone in Scala to make feature updates to our web crawler, authentication, data model and other server-side components.
We also use Solr for search indexing. The perfect candidate will have Solr experience as well as some SolrCloud DevOps experience (AWS).
This developer will work directly with our Co-founder/Product Manager, who is a developer and built much of the platform. However, the position is intended as mostly a self-directed position, where the Developer works semi-independently at start and, with time, largely independently.
We're looking for someone to start working with us part-time (20 hours/week), with potential to move to full-time (40 hours/week).
Strong preference for a Developer who can work 8am-5pm in US Eastern Time, or at least 70% overlapping this timeframe.
