Chenope is a bootstrap, or self-funded start-up, that creates high value and novel analytics targeted at organizations. Chenope was founded by experienced founders who had previously achieved some success bootstrapping a startup, and already boasts a partnership with a multi-billion dollar company and a sweeping patent that was granted in its entirety. We are a cross-Atlantic startup; most of our team is in Edinburgh, or in the San Francisco area. We're still fairly early stage, which means that each person has a lot of responsibility and a lot of room to grow; though salaries are still low, equity grants are very generous. If you want to join a startup with technology that is good enough that customers are willing to pay for it, work on interesting problems, and learn what it takes to build a real business, we could be a great place for you. There are not many like us.
We are currently looking for both front-end and back-end developers. We will consider both full-time and part-time applications. All applicants must have the right to work in the UK, EU, or US - no exceptions unfortunately.
Back-end developer - Algorithms: Must have strong background in IR, NLP, or a similar discipline, or a strong math and algorithms background. You must be able to implement the tools as well as develop the underlying algorithms for this work, including the construction and manipulation of large graphs and hypergraphs. We strongly prefer someone with a history of having worked on high-value IR, SNA, or data mining problems and who has the proven capability to do original work. Excellent knowledge of Java preferred. Any kind of degree or background okay - our interest is solely in your capacity to do the work.
Prior startup experience preferred, but is not required. To apply, please send your resume with at least a brief cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
