Backend Developer


How many times have you ever really put the cpu cores in your fancy laptop to work? Come work at Nutonian and learn how to turn your laptop into a toaster in the service of science.

We are looking for engineers to join our backend team. You will develop, enhance, operate and scale the algorithms, logic and distributed infrastructure for Nutonian's flagship product, Eureqa. This is a chance to work with and learn about multi-threaded parallel programming, big data processing, machine learning, and distributed computation to achieve the previously impossible task of automatically distilling analytic models from raw data.

Nutonian is changing the way people interact with their data and automatically builds the most accurate and understandable predictive models. Backed by Atlas Ventures, we are well funded and in a unique position to capitalize on the convergence of trends in big data and machine learning.

Our core technology, built upon years of academic research, has been used by over 30,000 people, a testament to its power and potential commercial reach. Our team is still small - everyone has a large impact, knows the CEO personally, and will create and own the core technology components that make up our company's product. Like other high performance teams, while we work hard, we also play hard with regular company meals, dinners, and social outings. We are based in Davis Square, Somerville, MA.
