Sekai is an enterprise software company that builds developer tools for digital twins in the energy and manufacturing industry. We build a cloud-agnostic SDK solution called the SEKAI platform.

SEKAI also provides managed infrastructure to run SEKAI on behalf of customers. Our platform is a proprietary solution for large enterprises to deploy in their own datacenter, as well as custom infrastructure for private cloud deployments.

We work with different size companies ranging from small, mid-size to public-listed companies, and Fortune 500s.

About the role

Skills: Spark, Camel, Python, R, Pyspark, Zepplin, Java, Scala

Hi there!

We're looking for a Data Scientist to join the cloud engineering team at SEKAI. We build distributed, highly scalable data technology using semantic and game tech in an industrial SDK for creating highly interactive, collaborative multi-user systems for assets like factories, ships, power stations and cities.

We are simplifying the lives of developers and data scientists and providing an incredible technology that can be integrated into any enterprise IT environment as easily as possible. SEKAI is already powering many Apps, including PC, VR, Web and Mobile AR based tools.

We skew heavily towards candidates who have professional experience with big data, SaaS, Graphing/data visualization and API driven solutions - however if you don't have experience but feel up to the challenge, please do apply!

About You

You love building new things. You love tinkering with new technologies. You love helping developers be more productive. You love data visualization. You love automation. You love helping customers solve problems.

Your work could be on big data ETL pipelines, GraphQL API, data analysis on financial, IoT or ERP data and optimization or any areas in between.

We love tinkering with new bleeding edge technologies like Qri, Databricks, Graph DB and not so new but new to the big data world such as machine learning. We encourage you to do the same!

Things You Might Do

You'll have a primary focus on the cloud based data sets in zeppelin and spark, though we may need to improve and tweak the automated infrastructure from time to time. The SEKAI platform is built on modern technologies like Java, Go, C++, Scala, JavaScript, React, GraphQL, Kubernetes, Postgres and Neo4j.

SEKAI is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organisation. That said, here are some things you'll focus on:

  • Work on web based data driven tools.
  • Help scale a fast-growing and unique system.
  • Prototype new features and algorithms,
  • Monitor and improve data processing for SEKAI and our customers.
  • Refactor a algorithms in Python or Scala.
  • Working with GIS data and map based visualizations,
  • Developing applications based on GraphQL API.
  • Plan and build product features - directly impact how our customers can be more productive.
  • Improve our developer platform - directly impact the way developers integrate SEKAI into their IT environments.
  • Experiment: this is a startup so engineering innovations can change.

You’ll also have the opportunity to travel onsite to many parts of the world to help customers (corona permitting), attend conferences and meet new people. You also have the option of working from an office, co-working space, from a beach, or anywhere you like!

The Whole Package

Location: Anywhere on the planet with a reliable Internet connection!

If you want to work remote, that's great.


  • Competitive salary.
  • 20 days vacation.
  • Work with a loving team that treats everyone as family.
