Roles and Responsibilities

We are looking for exceptional and ambitious individuals to develop our Causal AI platform for time series.

You will be expected to refine and implement our development standards & best practices. Experience with collaboration tools and general programming tools is desirable. On the frontend, we use React (with hooks), Typescript and styled components to build the majority of the application. We’re always open to trying new things if there is a good reason though.
