Job Description

COVID-19 has created a new social, political and economic world order – one that is increasingly driven by cultural narratives and online discourse. NWO’s bleeding-edge technology enables clients to surface the fears, motivations and demand drivers underlying various trends, providing them with unprecedented access to the why behind a narrative. NWO’s platform is already in use by Fortune 500 brands to empower strategic business decisions.

Job Description

Following an impressive seed-funding-round in 2020, we are scaling fast and searching for a talented backend engineer to join the team spearheading migration from a monolith to a service oriented architecture (e.g. microservices). You’ll spend your time rethinking the backend architecture of our NLP & trend forecasting engine, and abstracting out specific components (qua services) in the interest of making the product more robust, performant, and scalable. You will have the opportunity to do this ground up – including design, implementation, and maintenance.
