Software Developer and Python Instructor (Bilingual Japanese/English)

Austin, TX - Digital Transformation Services Full-time
Founded in 2001, Enthought helped establish Python's scientific community and became an early leader in scientific digital transformation. Our team of “scientists who code” pairs in-depth science expertise with data strategy, modeling, simulation, AI and more to transform businesses that depend on science. We solve complex problems for some of the most innovative and respected organizations across the oil and gas, life sciences, chemical, and semiconductor industries. Enthought is a highly collaborative, low-hierarchy workplace. "Enthoughters" are passionate about life, intellectually curious, dedicated to doing quality work, friendly, and fun. Enthought is headquartered in Austin, Texas, with offices in Houston, Texas; Cambridge, United Kingdom; Zürich, Switzerland; and Tokyo, Japan.

Enthought is seeking a Japanese-speaking technical instructor with a passion for teaching and solid experience using Python for software development and scientific computing / data science applications.

Do you like programming, solving problems, and teaching others? Are you the person in your lab or on your team people come to with all their questions (and do you enjoy answering them)? Do you wish there was a well-paid job where teaching is a core responsibility, but where you also get to work in science & technology? Then this is your dream job!

You’ll work closely with the rest of our Digital Transformation Services team based out of our downtown Austin office (with possibility to relocate to our Tokyo office) to facilitate our clients’ development of transformative digital capabilities. Among many things, you’ll: deliver week-long training classes; facilitate extended multi-week immersive training workshops; work one-on-one with clients to help them develop tools to solve technical, scientific, and business problems; and build personal and professional relationships with clients through long-term collaboration. You’ll have exposure to many facets of our comprehensive consulting approach — one day you might be working side-by-side with an engineer on a gnarly technical problem while the next you may find yourself mapping out the high-level business case with senior leaders of the organization.

You’ll also travel in the US and Japan to develop scientific computing capabilities of scientists, engineers, analysts, and data scientists across a range of industries.
