Software Quality Engineer Returnship

Remote/Virtual | Software | Full-time | Partially 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.
