Join the Algoly-Team!

Algoly is an algorithm builder, allowing anyone to build powerful data driven apps and control large & complex external data sets. We don't require any knowledge of coding or data processing from our customers!

Our goal is to minimize the needed technical knowledge to build and release algorithms, to centralize a diverse set of data set to make it available to our customers, and to allow data owners (especially small scientific teams) to monetize their data at scale. And because easy to use user experiences require a scalable and world class backend, we are looking for our next team members to help us overcome those technical challenges.

We are a funded startup (pre-Series A) acting in a high risk/high potential environment.

Available Jobs:


Freelance Senior Software Developer

Do you like building new technology from scratch? We set out to build an entire new way how our customers can design and create algorithms. Whilst we strive to make the user experience as simple as possible, the underlying technology stack has many new technological challenges and requires creating fundamentally new systems.

We are looking for a self driven and creative freelance senior software developer to work together on those challenges. Ideally you can solve complex and interesting problems and excel within a small but effective distributed team.

Given that this is an early-stage initiative, you also will play an active role in translating business and functional requirements into concrete deliverables. You should be comfortable with a degree of ambiguity that’s higher than most projects and relish the idea of solving problems that, frankly, haven’t been solved at scale before.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Take high level concepts and be able to discuss product requirements with our product manager.
  • Find creative ways to execute those requirements into programmatic and scalable solutions.
  • Execute stories from our backlog with a critical mindset if that's the right thing to do.
  • Be proactive to communicate blockers and ideas to the team on how to build a better technology stack and product.

Needed Qualifications:

  • 5+ years experience as a software developer
  • Fluency in one or more of: Ruby on Rails (Rails 5 / Ruby 2.5+), SQL (Postgres or MySQL), HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript (ES6), AWS (S3, Lambda, API Gateway, RDS, DynamoDB), Heroku, ETL
  • Experience with a functional programming language (Golang, Elixir, Clojure, Python, etc)
  • Experience with creating dynamic scripting languages
  • Experience within a PR review process using GitHub, working in an Agile workflow, working remotely with a distributed team, working with large data sets.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with a track record of working effectively with product managers and other functions.
