We're looking for backend engineers to accelerate our product development.

We have to solve various difficult engineering/UX problems:

Scale our computation engine: Our calculation engine performs the calculations behind Causal models — the challenge is to show the user instant results when possible and run complex operations (Monte-Carlo simulation, API calls).

Our spreadsheet-esque frontend interface: This interface comes with a slew of UI/UX challenges to support complex functionality without being complicated, and needs to be incredibly performant. Causal needs a low floor and a high ceiling — it should be simple enough for anyone to get started with, but powerful enough for really complex use-cases.

Our dashboarding and data visualisation capabilities: We have to allow users to create beautiful charts and tables to communicate with numbers.

I would love to chat if you are up for the challenge!

About Causal

We're building a new way to think and work with numbers. Causal is a tool for performing calculations, visualising data, and communicating with numbers. We take the good parts of spreadsheets and combine them with the good parts of programming, to make number-crunching fast, collaborative, and accessible to everyone. We are well-funded by some great VCs (Accel, Coatue, Passion Capital) and angel investors (Naval Ravikant, Scott Belsky, and many more) across the US and Europe.

We are a globally distributed team working remotely with members of our team on both sides of the Atlantic. We do have a presence in London and NYC.
