Apply science to culture using AI-driven analysis

Role overview

About Codec

Codec is a cultural intelligence platform. We apply science to culture using AI-driven analysis of thousands of millions of digital content engagements online to group mass audiences into communities, linked by shared leaders, interests, and identity. To help brands move away from mass reach, demographic and product based segmentation.

Our core beliefs are that brands of the future are community driven, culturally relevant and passion led. Post COVID, it’s never been so important for brands to be relevant and empathetic to grow. We help them do this by putting cultural intelligence at their heart.

Brands work with us to get insights into existing brand communities, to drive growth and discover how to unlock new, untapped communities as well as for business transformations and putting cultural insights at the centre of decisions.

Role

We’re looking for someone with strong Scala development skills to build and maintain our platform. Help provide technical leadership including code and architectural reviews and maintain coding standards across our stack.

You will work closely with our Data Science, Product and Client Services groups ensuring delivery of features that vary from implementing sophisticated back-end algorithms that make use of our big data sets and machine-learning to services and APIs to process our data and provide it to our front end.

We work in a very agile, small team in a test driven environment with no bureaucracy and lots of chances to make a big impact. Our tech stack is mostly Scala with RxJava, deployed into GCP using kubernetes with a react/node front end.

Key Responsibilities

  • Design and build APIs, services and systems across our platform
  • Respond to and resolve production platform issues
  • Perform code reviews and mentor junior engineers (not immediately!)
  • Help to improve engineering standards, tooling and processes.
  • Work with other teams to flesh out requirements
  • Enjoy yourself!

Skills and Experience Required

  • Experience developing API's and services in Scala
  • Understanding of modern CI/CD and testing practices
  • Have used SQL and/or relational databases
  • Have an understanding of functional and object oriented design
  • Ability to take a feature from a requirement to deployed to production
  • Curious and passionate about technology

Skills and Experience Nice To Haves

  • Kubernetes and kustomize experience
  • Knowledge of cloud services
  • Understanding of docker, linux, modern devops
  • Desire to mentor junior engineers
  • Big data experience
  • We’re committed to building a diverse group of talent with a broad range of backgrounds, skills and capabilities and will give full and fair consideration to all applicants. We hire for the person not for the role, looking for people who share our ambitions to be bold and innovate, making Codec.ai a global success story. 

Location

London is the capital of the United Kingdom, situated in the South East of the island. The world's largest financial centre, London is also often referred to the culture capital of the world. The city is well-known for its heritage, including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, and the historic settlement of Greenwich. London Underground is the oldest urban railway network in the world.

Technology workers in London earn 60pc more than the city average, with the figure even higher for foreign born workers, who earned 28pc more than their British counterparts in tech jobs. London can be considered as a center for professional relocation. Furthermore, there are over 100 of Europe's 500 largest companies' headquarters in London.

The city is famous for unpredictable weather. For instance, it could be cold, warm and rainy in one day and it’s often the topic of conversation across the city.

Did you know...

  • 2.5M people, one third of Londoners, are foreign born
  • 40% of Greater London is green space
  • 10-49

Codec is a cultural intelligence platform. We build community-driven brands: fusing AI with human imagination to tap in to pockets of culture that fuel growth. We apply science to culture using award-winning AI to make sense of thousands of millions of digital content engagements, grouping mass audiences into meaningful cultural communities, linked by shared leaders, interests, and identity. These insights can be plugged across the marketing workflow, to inform brand strategy, content creation, and media activation; connecting global teams and agencies to put cultural intelligence at the heart of brand-building. We work with leading brands within Unilever, Mars Wrigley, Diageo and more to unlock, track and grow their communities - giving them the cultural edge to create and activate emotionally-resonant content that supercharges growth. Our platform has been recognised as the Best Artificial Intelligence Product in Marketing’ (Cognition X) and one of the 50 most disruptive businesses in the UK (Real Business).
