Seeq makes data analytics software for a big market that’s often overlooked by tech companies: industrial process data. Think pharmaceutical manufacturers, wind farms, and energy companies with tons of equipment and sensors. Our software engineers tackle hard problems in streaming calculation, storage, and distributed computing, leveraging the latest features in Java 11, Kotlin, and PostgreSQL.

Our company was founded 100% remote and we're proud of it. We were good at remote long before COVID and will continue to be remote when COVID is a memory. You can work anywhere in a compatible time zone (our core hours are 8am-12pm Pacific). We use a variety of collaboration tools, like Zoom, Slack, and our homegrown Qube Virtual Office, which make us feel like we're in the same building together. We use agile tenets to iterate on both our product and development processes. We have a wonderful team of kind-hearted, talented engineers that love to collaborate, teach each other new tricks, and build products that exceed our customers’ expectations.

Our technology stack is largely JVM languages (Java, Kotlin) with some C#/.NET. The core of our product is a full-featured calculation engine that can perform complex math and execute machine learning algorithms on streaming time series data.


As a Software Engineer focusing on Performance at Seeq, you will: 
  • Develop and improve tools to measure and analyze the performance of Seeq’s software. Collaborate to create product performance/scalability benchmarks. 
  • Identify and quantify product performance bottlenecks. Develop and implement software solutions to mitigate performance bottlenecks. 


You love to code, and you love great software design. A well-written API brings you joy.

You are constantly finding ways to perfect your craft, be a better teammate, and come up with cool stuff.

You’re disciplined with a high attention to detail. You evangelize unit testing, continuous integration, and elegant solutions. You are allergic to bugs and have to take care of them immediately.

You learn things quickly. You readily explore new technologies and approaches. You listen really well, and you know how to make your ideas be heard without turning people off.

You are comfortable working in a JVM language (Java, Kotlin, Scala, etc.) You want to work with the tech stack we listed above, and on cloud platforms like AWS/Azure/GCE. You may be an expert at one (or more!) of these.

You have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent relevant experience.

You are up for traveling occasionally to hang out with your colleagues and get some face-to-face time.

You know how to balance life & work, and you don’t want a job that forces you to choose between them.

You want to work with a bunch of really smart people that love working together. And you want to work for a startup with lots of happy customers, good investors and a bright future.

You’ve read this far and are determined to apply directly through and not through a third-party hiring site.

You will answer the following question in your application cover letter: “What makes Seeq a good fit for you?”
