When you choose Senzing, you join a highly energetic, diverse team that is singularly focused on bringing world-class entity resolution APIs to engineers and data scientists. We have a deep commitment to being dedicated, helpful, and trustworthy. Senzing also strives to maintain integrity and strong ethics in all we do while striving to make our work fun. Senzing is a small (20-30) distributed, fully-remote team. Along with a compelling work environment, we offer highly competitive salaries, world-class benefits, and company shares.
The Senzing team is growing and seeking an Open-Source Community Lead to join a small, high performance team tasked with reaching the following goals for the Senzing Community:
− Enable simplified, robust delivery of Senzing on cloud platforms (e.g., AWS, Azure, GCP, OpenShift, Kubernetes)
− Build reusable assets for partners and customers
The Senzing Community source code is publicly available; code written by the Senzing Community team needs to be exemplary. Senzing customers look at the Senzing Community code as examples of how to deploy into their custom environments. This means that code and documentation need to be educational as well as functional. As the Open-Source Community Lead, you’ll be an educator through your code and documentation.
