Proton.ai is revolutionizing wholesale distribution. Distributors sell nearly every physical good you come across. Key to the economy, they make up over 28% of GDP. But there’s a problem. Selling as a distributor is complicated. Distributors carry hundreds of thousands of complicated SKUs, making it impossible for distributors to know what their customers need. Proton cuts through this complexity with AI. We provide a cutting edge solution that modernizes distributors' sales efforts. In doing so, we fulfill our mission of helping distributors better serve their customers while guaranteeing that hardworking people can use technology, rather than being squeezed out by it.
Delivering a great product with proven value that’s loved by our customers requires a tremendous team effort. At Proton, critical to our mission of sustainable growth is an intensely focused endeavour to build happy, fulfilled teams who take pride in the long term impact of their work. If you want to join a team that is invested in creating technology that improves the working lives of its customers, we’d love to hear from you.
Our company is in hyper growth mode. We’ve grown >6X YoY. Needless to say, it’s an exciting time to join the Proton.ai team
At Proton, we're bringing cutting-edge machine learning to B2B distribution. By predicting what customers will buy, we're improving sales and efficiency, and driving growth. Of course, we have to do this in a smart, scalable way, and take steps not to overload the user with data. Our goal is to make things easier for our users to be effective with minimal effort on their part, not to create a new Excel.
As a Backend Engineer, you'll work within our Python/Go webapp to improve the workflows of distribution sales reps. You'll have access to our growing backend group across the company working across our different products. You'll also have access to actual users to workshop your features.
What you'll do:
Work with UX designers, product managers, and frontend engineers to help devise, design, build, and revise new features.
You'll achieve this through collaborating with your team to deliver a seamless, performant experience across the web and mobile device
Collaborate with data scientists to deliver thoughtful features powered by cutting-edge machine learning models.
Experience that may be helpful:
You will need some familiarity with big data and deploying scalable and tested code, but specific knowledge of Python or Go is not required.
(Our backend code is written mostly in Python with some Go deployed using a microservice architecture. Frontend components are written primarily in Vue.js)
This is a full-time, fully remote position. US Salary $90-93k, plus equity, health benefits (we pay 99%), 401k and a generous vacation policy.
We're a remote-first company and open to candidates anywhere in the world. While we try to accommodate employee's schedules, our business largely operates on East Coast hours.
As you may have noticed, our hiring process is a little different. At Proton.ai, we assess candidates using an unbiased and thoughtful process. We ask questions directly related to the work you will be doing. Resumes are optional. They are not the focus of our selection process.
