Amperity, a marketing enterprise software startup founded by noted entrepreneurs Kabir Shahani and Derek Slager, is still in stealth mode — but even stealthy companies need someone writing the code.
Amperity is currently hiring for multiple positions, including a Site Reliability Engineer, following a $9 million funding round earlier this year. Amperity’s system works with large amounts of data in real time, and stitches this data together across multiple systems.
