User Interface

Scaligent is a stealth-mode startup based in Silicon Valley, looking to bring disruption to the $10B Business Intelligence market. We are building an innovative product for enterprises and cloud service providers. Our founding team is a unique mix of strong business and technical expertise. On the business side, we have experience of building rapidly-growing businesses like Nutanix from scratch and we have helped companies like Aster Data grow into a disruptive innovator (Aster was acquired by Teradata for $300M). On the technical side, our team has deep experience in distributed systems, machine learning and analytics at companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Yahoo. We are backed by top-tier VC firms and well-known angel investors.
For our UI engineering team, Scaligent is hiring JavaScript rock stars. Our user interface seeks to bring about the same level of revolutionary innovation as our back-end platform. Our goal is to change the way business users visualize and analyze large data sets, making the UI a critical differentiator for our product. The challenge is to build an interactive, data-driven interface that delivers high performance and is also intuitive and easy for business users.
We are seeking core members of the engineering team that are up to this challenge and share our passion for building revolutionary user interfaces. This is truly an opportunity to build something from scratch that will be the first of its kind in the analytics market.
