Lead Engineer/ Tech Lead for Daxx New Client


Daxx is looking for Lead Engineer/ Tech Lead to join and expand Daxx New Client team in Kyiv 

About the project:

At our company, we are developing a paradigm-shifting search agent mechanism, involving a whole new search experience driven by AI (ML/NLP). Our first application is in product search, essentially replacing the standard ‘filter’ component in marketplaces and e-commerce sites. The result is a virtual agent that helps you to discover the right products for you – by helping you explore choices, stimulating you to consider alternatives, automatically processing your (potentially conflicting) preferences, and engaging with you through multiple channels (web, mobile, messenger) using natural language.

The team includes AI/ML, back-end, front-end, and UX resources. Our tech stack is currently based on Python and React. The first development phases have been completed, and an MVP for a fully functional marketplace is in place. This enables us to test all the core concepts, before moving to the development of components and a service backbone that we can integrate and deliver to marketplace/e-commerce players. Together with one of the co-founders (20yrs of ML/NLP experience), you will form the core of the AI team to take us through these important next phases.

Tasks and responsibilities:

  • Working with the founders to set the direction and goals for development
  • Designing and reviewing scalable technical solutions, as well as driving architecture definitions
  • Developing E2E solutions (design, code, tests, documentation) along with the team
  • Mentoring and coaching of engineers

General requirements:

  • Minimum 5 years of full-time post-university development experience
  • A proven track record of building/leading a high-performing engineering team
  • Experience with recommendation engines, predictive modeling, and machine learning is a big plus

  • You are flexible and dynamic and comfortable with rapid prototyping, iteration and dealing with a level of uncertainty

Technical requirements:

  • Excellent coding abilities and experience with architectural patterns
  • Deep experience with programming and scripting languages such as Java, Python, Scala
  • Thorough knowledge of Object-Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) concepts
  • Strong experience of Web Services and API development using REST
  • Experience with developing solutions in large cloud computing infrastructures
  • Strong experience in integrating solutions to existing web-sites
  • Experience with relational databases (Oracle, MySQL) and NoSQL (Cassandra, MongoDB)
  • Familiarity with web UI technology such as React

Team environment:

  • Familiar with working in distributed/remote teams
  • Able to “think out of the box”, take on new ideas
  • Good command of English, and comfortable with regular voice/video calls to discuss the way forward
  • You enjoy working in a highly collaborative environment
