We’re looking for a talented, senior-level software developer to join the team building the next major version of our interactive video application, Lumiere (https://lumiere.is). 


At Latitude, we explore ways to interact with and understand video content through unique audience interactions and AI. We service some of the largest media companies in the world to help them better connect their content, brands, and audiences.


Job Description

As a senior developer, you’ll join a distributed dev team to build solutions for a modern, forward-thinking tech stack.


Considerable professional experience with node.js and Elasticsearch is a must for this position. Deep familiarity with other elements of our backend stack (Google Cloud Platform, Firebase, Terraform) is a big plus. Any experience with Svelte / Sveltekit, which our team also works with, would be welcome but not the primary focus of the role.


At Latitude, we value curiosity, creative problem-solving, innovation, independence, and initiative. Are you able to build scaleable, performant services with a holistic view of the application needs and product direction? Do you write clean, solid code and welcome feedback from peers? Do you function well in an environment where you routinely encounter challenges you haven’t seen before? Those are the things we care most about.


Required Qualifications

● Minimum 5 years professional software development experience, with a focus on Node.js and TypeScript

● Expertise in Elasticsearch, including querying, aggregations, index and data management

● Experience with database design and management


Preferred Qualifications

● Experience with other NoSQL databases (Firestore)

● Deep knowledge of cloud platforms, preferably Google Cloud Platform

● Experience with Terraform / infrastructure-as-code

● Familiarity with other technologies relevant to our services, such as Svelte, Firebase, and Tailwind CSS


Bonus Points

● Python proficiency

● AI Systems Integration

● DevOps interest & familiarity


Personal Qualifications

● Excellent written and verbal communication

● Creativity, curiosity, and a willingness to experiment

● Strong prioritization skills and the ability to self-manage time

● Ability to work independently or collaboratively to find solutions (and the experience to know when each is needed)

● Passion for continued education and adapting to new technologies and industry trends

● Positive attitude for mentoring junior team members and participating in peer code reviews
