Sr Backend Software Engineer, Platform

Join our multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers and analysts building global sensor networks to deliver environmental insights.


Aclima's networks collect, process, and analyze real-time data flowing from thousands of environmental sensors, both stationary and on vehicles, enabling a level of environmental inquiry that has never been possible before. Working closely with partners, we help translate that data into actionable insights, empowering people to change the way we design and manage our buildings, communities, and cities. It is our mission to use this new body of knowledge to create a more resilient, healthy and thriving world.

You'll be joining a small but growing platform team inside a company of about 50 software engineers, scientists, electrical engineers, designers and analysts.

The Platform team builds, maintains and extends Aclima's core software platform including high-volume data processing pipelines, data storage, monitoring tools and APIs. Over 90% of our platform is written in Python, using SQLAlchemy and Flask extensively. We run most of our infrastructure in Docker containers on Kubernetes inside Google Cloud Platform.

Other technologies in use at Aclima include Google BigQuery, Cassandra, MariaDB, Nginx, NSQ and Redis.

This is an opportunity to be at the forefront of developing a truly impactful, important solution.
