At Gerulata Technologies, we are a young tech firm located in Bratislava, developing sophisticated analytical applications utilizing cutting-edge technologies and the latest advances in AI.

Our products support high-level decision-making within government institutions, including defense and intelligence sectors. We're a passionate small team, dedicated to supporting democratic institutions and combating disinformation and hostile propaganda.

We work together with different NGOs and research institutions to deliver high-value products on a global scale. Our clients include government institutions, military organizations, law enforcement agencies, and the intelligence community.

We foster an informal, agile and open culture, far from the constraints of a traditional corporate environment. In our team, everyone has a voice, and we prize independent thinking and creativity.

Who we are looking for?

We're seeking a Data Acquisition Engineer who shares our drive and commitment. In this role, you will tackle compelling challenges and make a meaningful difference. Your first task will involve data sourcing, which could be as simple as making an API call or as intricate as operating a swarm of dockerized mobile emulators. This role promises variety and demands creativity and analytical thinking.

Scalability is another challenge you will tackle. You'll move from manually monitoring a handful of groups to building an automated system that scales dynamically as new data sources are discovered. Our aim isn't just incremental growth; we seek a fundamental transformation in the scale of our operations. Currently, our coverage extends to Slovakia and a few neighboring states, but our ambition is to expand across all of Europe, America, and eventually achieve global coverage. Our products must be multi-lingual, multi-modal, and cross-border to achieve this goal.

What skills are we looking for?

Programming languages:

  • Solid working proficiency of Python, including object-orientated and asynchronous programming patterns.

  • SQL databases: the ability to write queries, understand the performance impact of different queries

  • Basic HTML, CSS & Javascript: the ability to read the code and understand the basic concepts. A lot of the data we work with comes in the form of unstructured HTML documents.

Technologies and frameworks:

  • Web scraping: experience with parsers such as BeautifulSoup, browser automation such as Selenium or scraping frameworks such as Scrapy.

Other relevant technologies in our stack (these are nice to have):

  • Docker + Kubernetes

  • Gitlab CI/CD

  • RabbitMQ

  • Redis

  • ElasticSearch

  • PostgreSQL

  • OpenCypher (graph query language)

On-Site Requirement

This role is critical to our mission and the successful operation of our products. As a result, we require the role to be initially on-site at our Bratislava office, given the size and complexity of our tech stack and infrastructure. Mastering our systems will be crucial to your success, and this process will be most effectively supported in an on-site environment. After the initial months, remote work options may be discussed.
