What We Do at Deepfield
Our customers are internet-focused companies that are fully immersed in the 21st century: our solutions have found their place in the largest networks of today - from service providers (cable and multiple system operators, telecommunications service providers, and cloud providers) to webscale companies and large digital enterprises. There's no shortage of data in these environments; the challenge is in turning all that data into meaningful and actionable information that can be used to drive improved network performance and customer experience, create better strategic business decisions and automate networks and network operations.

The biggest players in the industry are turning to Deepfield for all these answers. It isn't enough for our products to be intuitive, engaging, and beautifully engineered and designed - they also need to be reliable and scalable.
This is where we need you.

Job Position Description:
You'll work on a small team to help define and, most importantly, build the backend to a business intelligence application that allows the user to navigate, analyze, and explore massive data in ways that anticipate the questions that need to be answered.

Our ideal candidate is an experienced software engineer with a proven track record delivering production-quality software over at least the last five years.

  • Day-to-day Linux, Git, all from the shell
  • Contributes to a collaborative, dynamic, and diverse team
  • Thrives in a fast-paced, quickly evolving, tech start-up environment

Perks:
  • The excitement of having immediate impact across a global customer base and some of the most important internet companies
  • A group of people that actually enjoys hanging out together! We have frequent company events such as demos, tech talks, outingsoh, and did we mention food?
  • The opportunity to apply state-of-the-art technologies to solve interesting and challenging problems
  • Innovative teammates with diverse interests and hobbies
  • A relaxed, flexible, and fun environment located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor stocked with plenty of snacks and sunlight
  • Opportunity to learn about other cutting-edge technologies and engage in collaboration with diverse set of colleagues all over the world
