Thinking Machines is a technology consultancy building AI & data problems to solve high impact problems for our client. Our vision is for the Philippines to become a global hub for data science. To do that, we create data cultures, one organization at a time.
We’re a company made up of intellectually curious, civic-minded, forever-learning individuals. We believe that great data science products are built with care for people, and that the best way to drive inclusive innovation is to start with a diverse team.
Our field of work is incredibly dynamic, so we want to work with people who are committed to growing with us. We want to hire people who can demonstrate an ability to learn, then provide them with personalized coaching, growth opportunities, and a great working environment to get them to world-class.
As an Enterprise Solutions Engineer, you will be working with our team to create the technical architecture of our biggest enterprise projects. Our enterprise clients deal with massive amounts of critical data that run with virtually zero downtime. As such, they have their own IT and technical teams that ensure everything works smoothly and securely at every level. Given our commitment to customer happiness, we have to make sure our technical decisions always meet their operational demands.
You will join our team in designing, hashing out, and implementing our infrastructure proposals with fellow engineers and tech managers from our clients. You need to be specifically attuned to the priorities and considerations of large corporations, making sure what we build for them is technically sound and can be fully integrated into their systems.
You need to have enough critical thinking and technical proficiency to help our team analyze trade-offs between different technical solutions, and effectively recommend the best way forward given the client’s unique needs and constraints. Client engineering teams will respect your suggestions more if you know the nuances of what you’re talking about!
We know that navigating large corporations is very complex. As a company that loves its clients, we are looking for customer-centric problem solver that will be committed to their success.
Since the data science space can get crazy, we are looking for someone who is up for any challenge and has the initiative to seek out ways to be useful. We move fast, and we expect you to keep up!
We’re looking for someone who meets the following profile:
Strong external communication skills - Your main job will be to communicate how Thinking Machines’ products and services integrate to the client's existing system. From pitching high-level plans to IT managers to attending technical war rooms with engineers, expect to be talking about our solutions at every level.
Enjoys solving engineering puzzles - Every client and every project will have its own engineering problems. Digging deep into which combination of available tools and platforms solves their specific issues should feel exciting for you!
Quick learning agility - You're not expected to know everything, but we expect you to fill in the gaps quickly. Research and ask questions! You'll be part of a very talented team, make sure to learn something new everyday!
Strong sense of initiative - There are many things to do from all sides! See something you can help with, but we haven't assigned you on? Do it.
A minimum of two years work experience in a software engineering role.
Proficiency in at least one programming language (preferably Python). Knowing more is a bonus. Knowing too many but all poorly will make our eyes roll.

Experience being a tech lead or architect of a large engineering project
Experience managing stakeholders of varying seniority
