🏗️Senior Backend Engineer
Posted on Wednesday, March 1, 2023
Sensible connects software to the messy, unstructured data that businesses encounter every day. Our goal is to bring about a world where computers do the work that computers are best at (processing large volumes of data) so that humans can do what humans are best at (critical thinking and empathy).
The first piece of this problem that we're tackling is document parsing. Even as software is eating the world, so many business workflows still rely on two entities sending PDFs to each other. In a single afternoon with Sensible, developers can ship a production-ready API endpoint that turns documents into useful data. Today, we have happy customers across insurance, logistics, proptech, and financial services using Sensible to process thousands of different types of documents.
Sensible was founded in 2020 and is backed by some of the top investors in Silicon Valley.

As a senior backend engineer, you’ll work closely with our head of engineering and the rest of the engineering team to improve and expand our core document parsing engine and API layer.
Sensible is a remote-first company and this role is open to anyone located in North or South America. We provide competitive compensation and meaningful equity.
What you’ll do
Build new product features for Sensible’s parsing engine.
Maintain our extensive test coverage and thorough security practices.

You’re product-minded and customer-focused.
