Here at Neo4j, we are the developers of the world’s leading graph database. We are looking for a software engineer to join our Neo4j Cypher Team.

Cypher is Neo4j’s graph query language and is a foundational piece of how developers interact with Neo4j. You will be part of a brilliant, energetic, and fun team of engineers that build and continuously evolve and improve the graph database! The Neo4j Cypher team develops and maintains a deep stack of code, from the high level declarative queries users write, through the query planner that converts these into highly optimized executable plans, to the runtimes that efficiently execute these plans on the kernel and underlying stores and indexes of the property graph model.

As a Neo4j Cypher software engineer you will not only work with improving and optimizing the planner and runtimes, but you will develop wide-stack features that improve the capabilities of the Cypher language and the Neo4j database, and touch all parts of the code : from the parser down to the store files and indexes.Ideally, you :

  • have 3+ years of experience developing production level software
  • like functional programming and are not intimidated by Scala, familiarity with JVM a plus
  • familiar with Agile development processes (TDD, kanban / scrum, pair programming)
  • Nice to have :

  • comfortable programming in Java
  • understand the principles of query planning
  • have a strong foundation in algorithm design and analysis
  • are interested in transferring academic research into production grade products
  • We don’t expect you to have experience across all these areas. We have a mix of different skills in our team. Many of our teams are spread over two or more locations so you should be comfortable working as part of a distributed team.

    Location : London UKOur vision : At Neo4j we have always strived to help the world make sense of data.
