10 things to know about Sematext Engineering
Building several different products
We have built and are building several different products and there are more in the queue. This means more diversity, more new and interesting work is ahead.
300+ clients and projects around the globe
Although we are a product company, the consulting side of Sematext is a well-established practice – we have worked with hundreds of clients and projects around the planet. Every project is slightly different and keeps our work interesting.
Massive project scale
We are small and agile, but all our products and our client engagements are of truly massive scale.
We love open-source
We contribute to open-source (see sematext@github) and encourage open-source participation. Some of us are open-source veterans (not just users, but contributors).
We often give talks
We are regulars at conferences and like to give talks.
We love challenges!
Do you? Come join us! You’ll work with and learn from great engineers and be continually challenged to improve your skills. However, if you are afraid of learning, challenges, or want easy and simple work, then we are not your best choice.
Working with the best technologies
We work with a wide range of modern technologies: search (e.g. Lucene, Solr, Elasticsearch, Docker, Kubernetes), big data (e.g. Hadoop, HBase, Cassandra), linguistic (e.g. OpenNLP, Spacy), machine learning (e.g. Recommendation Engine).
We keep code clean!
There is no ugly, old legacy code and everything we do is done with large scale, high performance, and ease of management/operations in mind.
We’re fully distributed, spread over several continents. We gather at industry and all-hands events.
No VCs involved
There is nobody to tell us what to work on, what we can or cannot do.
What our engineers say
The best things I love about working in Sematext are open-minded and friendly team, working on the bleeding edge of new technologies and company’s direction towards building a team of experts, not just coders.”
I love challenges and learning new technologies. Solving big problems brings big satisfaction and Sematext is definitely a place that provides such environment.”
I always wanted to be a part of a company working on challenging and interesting projects involving Search and Big Data. So after I joined Sematext I finally have a chance to work with it everyday. Now I only have to worry about how not to became a workaholic :)”
I’ve always liked to explore different programming languages and cutting edge open source technologies. That was previously often taken as a distraction, with a facial expression of “here he goes again”. Since I’ve started working at Sematext I have finally found a group of people where my “obsession” is taken as a virtue. And that’s a great feeling!”
