At Peregrine, we build software to power critical decision-making for public safety and emergency response organizations. These organizations use our technology to protect lives, protect property, and deliver their best service to the public.

We are motivated to help institutions solve their hardest problems through better decision-making. We are passionate about creating cutting-edge, highly scalable data platforms that enable organizations to transform the way they interact with their data.

As a team of service-oriented entrepreneurs, we trust each other, help each other, and dive into challenges together. We each strive to be empathetic, curious, inclusive, brave, and exceptional in our execution.

The Backend Engineer Role
We are looking for strong developers to join our small but growing team. As one of the earliest engineering hires, you’ll take on a lead role with vast ownership across one of our stacks. We are tackling challenging and important problems, and need engineers who can operate well in ambiguity and come to a great solution.
As an engineering team, we believe strongly that empathy improves our solutions. Seeing people use the product is a priority and the way we get to the right answer. Engineers will have the opportunity to work closely with our team onsite to understand the variety of use-cases that Peregrine serves. We value strong ownership on our team, while also being highly collaborative and always seeking input and feedback.
As part of being a backend engineer, you’ll use a variety of programming languages and technologies to scale our platform to handle terabytes of data being ingested across a variety of data sources. You will work on a wide range of complex challenges, including building a sophisticated sharing model, processing streams of data from multiple sources, efficiently notifying users on data matching specified criteria, and optimizing queries to serve search results quickly.
Our stack is constantly evolving but based on the foundations of Python, Django, Celery, Airflow, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, Neo4J, AWS, Terraform, and Ansible.
