Software Development Engineer Returnship

Work from Anywhere | Software | Full-time | Fully remote


The Path Forward Returnship at Seeq is a 16-week paid program for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off for caregiving. The program runs from January 10 - April 29, 2022. Returnships are open to those who have at least 5 years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for at least two years to focus on caring for a child or other dependent. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply. 

Seeq’s Returnship is based on our lengthy experience with internships and offers the opportunity to enhance your skills, update your resume with new experience, and make connections with others also transitioning back to the workforce. You'll join a team environment that prioritizes inclusion, teamwork, mutual respect and positive interactions. We have partnered with Path Forward, a nonprofit organization on a mission to empower people who’ve been focused on caregiving transition back to the paid workforce.

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, distributed computing, and user interface design. 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.

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 distant 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.


Job Description

If you work on the back-end, you’ll work with JVM languages (Java, Kotlin), databases (Postgres), cloud computing (AWS, Azure, Kubernetes, Docker), and microservices. If you work on the front-end, you’ll use TypeScript, React, and Bootstrap to build beautiful single-page applications. If you work on Data Lab, you’ll use Docker, Kubernetes, and Python to empower data scientists.

You’ll hunt down and squash bugs and put automated tests in place to prevent a new infestation.

Not only will you participate in teammates’ designs and code reviews, but you'll design and implement your own features along with their automated tests.

As an Agile team member, you’ll participate in daily stand ups, demos, and regular retrospectives and constantly be looking for ways to improve our process.

Each Returnship employee will have a mentor and will work with one of the following squads within the larger engineering team.

  • Calc Engine: Responsible for the calculation engine, a custom language for expressing analyses of time series data and its evaluation engine. Squad members are passionate about execution correctness, efficiency, math, and language design.

  • Extensibility: Responsible for authentication, connectors to outside datasources, export, SDKs, Seeq Data Lab, and Seeq Add-ons. These technologies enable user-specific workflows and custom visualizations.

  • Agility: Responsible for several parts of the frontend and the supporting backend technologies. Currently focused on full stack work enabling customer creation of customized dashboards, WYSIWYG reports, scorecards, tables, and associated data visualizations.

  • Scalability: Responsible for ensuring the 10,000th Seeq user has the same great experience as the 1st Seeq user. Focused on backend technologies including PostgreSQL, scalable microservices, and high-performance caching.

Skills & Requirements

You have 5 or more years of previous software experience, but have spent time away from your career for caregiving.

You're good at finding the best tool to solve a problem without getting caught up in whether it's the new hip thing. You hate bugs, are eager to squash them, and work to prevent them from infesting your code as you design and implement new features. A well-written API brings you joy.

You have a knowledge of the software development lifecycle and want to join a company that emphasizes agility and creativity.

You’re disciplined with a high attention to detail. You learn things quickly and prefer a work environment that embraces and capitalizes on change.

You listen really well, and you know how to make your ideas be heard without turning people off.

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

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