What we are building

Mimica's mission is to accelerate the discovery and deployment of automation with AI. Our first product, Mapper, learns patterns from employee clicks and keystrokes, identifies key steps, decisions and exceptions in user data and generates “blueprints” for automation. Today, it supports RPA teams, that build software bots for repetitive computer tasks such as data entry, form completion and claim processing. Alongside creating process maps for automation, we've launched a companion tool, Miner, which helps enterprises identify and prioritize automation opportunities.

Our approach to engineering

  • We prioritize customer needs first
  • We work in small, project-based teams
  • We have flexibility in terms of the problems we work on
  • We own the full lifecycle of our projects
  • We avoid silos and encourage taking up tasks in new areas
  • We balance quality and velocity
  • We have a shared responsibility for our production code
  • We each set our own routine to maximize our productivity

Your mission

In this role, your mission will be to enhance and scale the backend systems powering the Mimica platform. This means designing and implementing a scalable architecture, developing and optimizing backend services and APIs, improving the performance and reliability of existing components, and taking operational responsibility for what you build. As a member of our early engineering team, you‘ll have the opportunity to shape our technical direction, processes and culture.

Part of your day-to-day

  • Contributing to architectural decisions and collaborating across teams to identify and implement product improvements.
  • Developing and optimizing a real-time backend service that enables multiple users to edit graph data and re-train AI models through their input.
  • Creating libraries and building APIs in our Node backend to interact with the various ML components of the system.
  • Diagnozing fault-tolerance and availability issues, as well as performance bottlenecks, and resolving them.
  • Refactoring our components and services and producing documentation for your implementations.
  • Providing feedback to peers through pair programming and code reviews and helping those around you to level up.
  • Participating in hiring and onboarding new team members; taking on end-to-end project management responsibilities as we grow.
