Senior Frontend Engineer

Our Story

KnowledgeHound was one of the first SaaS platforms to solve major pain points for the market research and insights industry. Today we’re changing the game for how companies create, discover, and share insights from their customer research data. In this time, we’ve managed to disrupt the way people inside many of the world’s best companies, including Google, Twitter, Procter and Gamble, Whirlpool, Fandango, and more, put their research to work.

Our team in Chicago is a small but mighty powerhouse of great talent. You will report directly to the VP of Engineering and create innovative products with a team of highly talented software engineers. We are customer-obsessed and provide opportunities to interact with our customers or just be a fly on the wall and listen to their feedback. We celebrate innovation and our stack is continually evolving. For example we are transitioning our deployment model to Kubernetes to allow us to scale our services.

We are pushing the boundaries of where market research can go and have started layering in data science and machine learning. This role requires creativity, agility, active problem-solving skills, and a fun personality (life is too short to take ourselves too seriously). If you don't shy away from tough, but rewarding challenges, in a fast-paced environment then you will love it here.

As we’re sure you’d like to know, here’s a glance at our tech stack. Python and Django microservices with REST interfaces running in Kubernetes, AWS Lambdas, Elasticsearch and Postgres for indexing and storage, React on the frontend - all hosted in AWS which is managed via Terraform and Chef.

And last but not least, some of the benefits we provide:
