|Hey, I’m Andri Didych, the Head of Data team at YouScan, |
and I’m looking for great product engineers to help us collect and structure more data from the Internet.
YouScan.io is a social media listening solution that gives businesses the ability to become better by listening to their customers.
YouScan was recognized as #1 solution in Visual Analytics in the world in Martech Challenge conducted by independent experts.
Our customers are Pepsico, Google, L’Oreal, Nestle and many other well-known brands.
We’re a Ukrainian product company with a strong internal culture.
Each year we double our social media coverage, so we’re always looking for a professional to join our team in the Kyiv office.
You may have heard the joke that data is the new oil, believe it or not, but we are fueling the entire company:)
You will be a part of the Data Squad, responsible for collecting, structuring, and storing huge amounts of data, ~400M new mentions in social media daily. That’s one of our four product squads, and it consists of 3 back-end engineers and 1 tech support at this moment.
You will expand data collection for major social platforms, make it faster and more cost-effective.
We also consider you to improve our crawlers, make them smarter, but still predictable. You’ll work on ranking & discovery mechanisms.
You will dive deep into various small and large social platforms to understand their mechanics and opportunities to get more value for our clients.
You will participate in architectural discussions, write clean code, and deploy it to production (we deploy many times a day).
We also expect you to support your code running in production — proper monitoring with metrics, logs, and alerts will be your friend.
We use C# as our main language, always relying on async IO and utilizing TPL DataFlow for complicated processing pipelines.
Microservices are hosted on Azure. We extensively use Azure Queues and Tables Services for communication and storage, and Redis when needed.
We’re mostly using .NET Core and Docker Swarm, write our Infrastructure as a code, run it with Terraform. We use Jenkins for build and deploy.
We love predictability: metrics on Prometeus + ELK for logs, alerts integration to Slack.
Oh, and Fiddler and TestDriven code runner are our daily tools as well.
We’re looking for a real teammate — you share your vision, communicate, bring in your own ideas.
The person with analytical skills, the ability to manage tons of details easily, and think fast.
You also listen and hear other points of view, can look with another person’s eyes.
You have a positive mindset, passion for software development, and get the job done.
From a technical perspective, we expect you to know how to process and store a lot of data, use async IO whenever possible, and write human-readable code.
— We will pay for your professional development — conferences, courses, books etc.
— You will be able to work remotely occasionally (before & after COVID)
— Unlimited vacation (yeah, really)
— Self-education Fridays
