Why Survata?

Survata is a San Francisco startup building the Brand Intelligence platform. We help clients like Clorox and Chipotle measure consumer sentiment at every touchpoint on the customer journey. Our technology allows clients to interview consumers based on specific online & offline actions. We leverage the scale of the web to drastically increase our consumer reach. Beyond simply providing the data, our platform enables clients to analyze and visualize their data to provide actionable insights.

We are backed by leading investors (Y Combinator, SoftTech, Bloomberg Beta, IDG Ventures, and PivotNorth) but are a small team where you can make a big impact. We like to move quickly, invest behind the curve, look at the data, and have “beer class” on Friday.


Senior Backend Software Engineer

We’re bringing market research into the modern world. We use techniques from distributed systems to categorical statistics to machine learning to data visualization to deliver valuable insights to our clients. Our data pipeline scales into the billions with a serverless architecture to allow our clients to do research based on online actions.

You’ll help set up our systems for the growth to come. No matter the project, you’ll jump in with both feet, architecting it just enough to deliver in the short term and set us up for the long term. You’ll focus on our distributed systems and data pipeline.

About you

  • You get excited about billions of events and terabytes of data.
  • You’ve built big systems that drive a business.
  • Distributed systems idempotence excites you.
  • You understand that your software runs on computers (but you architect things so you spend the minimum amount of time possible thinking about that).
  • You’ve used a lot of AWS services. You love some, are frustrated by others, and can’t wait to try the next one.
  • You either have experience with the likes of Spark, EMR, and Hadoop, or you’ve read a ton about them and are dying to get your hands dirty.
  • You thrive on the energy of operating in a fast-paced, ever-changing startup atmosphere.
