Location: Washington

Job Description:

We all know every decision should be driven by data. But what about the data you don't know? For years, the status quo in data aggregation has lacked visibility, moved slowly, and cost too much---leaving organizations to make critical decisions, day after day, without the whole picture. Premise changes that. Across 138 countries and counting, our technology connects communities of global smartphone users to source actionable data in real-time, cost-effectively and with the visibility the world's most innovative companies, governments and development organizations need. With Premise, organizations win. And communities win, too. People can earn more from their opinions and discoveries. They can influence their cities for the better. And, unlike other data sourcing methods out there, they can do it all with full transparency that the data they're gathering is going to an organization that values it---and values them. Position SummaryWe are seeking a highly skilled and experienced Senior Software Engineer to join our dynamic team. As a key member of our development team, you will be responsible for creating all server-side APIs, designing and implementing robust business logic, developing data models, and managing data storage for our microservices-based architecture running in a cloud environment.
