Description
Observa is an exciting young AI company headquartered in Seattle. We built out a beautiful technology platform and are selling our services in earnest. This position is for a Software Engineering that wants to learn about fast-moving, cutting (even bleeding) edge tech and based upon that, write code that goes into production quickly.

We know what we need to do and want you to help us get there without us micromanaging or dictating your every move. We also understand that even in the world of startups, having a life is the point of life!

We use scripting languages because they are fast and easy. You'll know one or more of these, and so they are pretty much interchangeable. We also use compiled C because it's fast in a different sort of way!

Look us up on Geekwire before you apply so you understand what you might be getting into. We are fast-moving and work as a team to tackle the types of problems that large entities cannot.
We do AI as engineers, not as scientists or hobbyists.
This means that it's one tool in our company kit, and will be one in yours, you need to bring solid engineering skills and knowledge.
