Job Description

We couldn’t create this award-winning work without seeking and hiring the best talent. What does it mean to be a Knowner? We are curious innovators, knowledge-hunters who are constantly challenging ourselves to do better and be better for our clients, for our team, and for our world at large. Our offices around the U.S. are open, and while most of our people work in a hybrid setting, we are a distributed workforce with a number of Knowners working remotely.


As a Senior Software Engineer at Known, you can expect to work on the backend across various projects. You’ll join small, highly focused teams where you’ll have the opportunity to significantly influence the direction of our products, team practices, and the company’s broader technical culture!

Because our work is often project-driven, we are always reevaluating and updating our tech stack, which means you’ll always be learning new skills and developing expertise in industry-leading technologies! On the backend, you'll work on distributed systems, API endpoints, event-driven microservices, asynchronous and parallel programming, pipelines, and reporting systems. You'll be responsible for designing these distributed systems and pipelines using a variety of architectural design patterns. You'll leverage industry-standard tools such as Flask, Tornado, SQLAlchemy, PostgreSQL, Redshift, RabbitMQ, Docker, Kubernetes, Vue, and more. Each project offers unique, exciting challenges!

You'll primarily use Python on the backend. Most of our infrastructure is cloud-based (AWS), and we use Docker and container orchestrators for deployment. We strive to implement practices like CI/CD, environment parity, and testing. Finally, we actively promote open-source projects internally; check out pytest-mock-resources, one of our in-house custom plugins!

  • Work closely with data scientists and product managers on a wide variety of products and projects that span the marketing and advertising industries across both television and digital
  • Play an active role in designing and building new, cutting-edge products

  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes is a plus
