The Back End Software Engineer Role

AlphaSights' Back End Engineers build features across our ecosystem of products and services, both internal and client facing. As a back end engineer, you will remove pain-points, optimise workflows, and enhance the intelligence and capabilities of our systems. You'll work closely with a variety of people in the business to arrive at the best solution, immediately see the impact of your work, and get feedback directly from users.

We're looking for people who are interested in building software systems to an incredibly high standard, comfortable working across multiple languages, and learn quickly when new technologies are introduced. We care more about your engineering skill versus your deep knowledge of a particular language or framework.

You will:

  • Diagnose complex issues across various levels of the stack
  • Improve the performance of our applications
  • Improve developer tooling and processes
  • Work in small, nimble teams
  • Understand our business context deeply and leverage your engineering knowledge to propose creative solutions to problems
  • Contribute to our open source projects


What We Look For
  • Have 4+ years of industry experience
  • Are able to write code in a high-level programming language. We primarily work with Ruby but we also have some Python, Java, and Elixir in the stack
  • Can balance deep work with cross-team collaboration
  • Enjoy writing code in a variety of languages
  • See yourself as an entrepreneur as well as an engineer


What You Can Expect
  • You would join a dynamic, multinational, and diverse team who enjoy solving interesting problems in a collaborative environment
  • We have self-taught engineers as well as graduates from top Computer Science and Engineering schools
  • Your co-workers will include motivated recent graduates as well as experienced industry leaders from companies such as Google and Amazon

Don't worry if your experience or background doesn't match all of these areas, we believe a broad spectrum of experience provides a great perspective on solving problems in new and innovative ways and we'd love to hear from you.
