We're creating the whole backend in Go, and all our curating/utility tools.
We need people with a pioneering spirit to join our team and mission, and
that find thrill in working with tasks like: .
natural language processing
story analysis, comparison and weighting
all including advanced database usage (currently Postgresql). Longer term
more audio processing might be done in Go too.
Some web-front-end and/or iOS/Android experience could also be of use.
We're looking for someone with programming experience, but not necessarily
a lot of Go experience, as it is quite new.
Experience from other backend/database work would be natural.
We are a 4-person team in Berlin currently part of the hub:raum accelerator
program, also part of Startupbootcamp Berlin.
