You will work on a single-page web application written on top of a large stack of modern open source frameworks and libraries. Your work will touch a wide range of problems - from creating effective data visualizations to making the UI feel ultra responsive via asynchronous I/O techniques. On the backend, you will help architect and implement a REST API that can quickly and efficiently respond to highly parallelizable big data queries.

Our client is looking for engineers who enjoy working on the full stack of technologies used to create a data-centric product with a beautiful customer experience.

    • Broad understanding of the architecture, development, and operations of scalable, production-quality web applications
    • Demonstrated growth in responsibility through their career and a strong aptitude to take on new challenges with no "standard solution"
    • Innate ability to work with product and design teams to collaboratively develop beautiful and functional user experiences, especially in the presentation of data insights
    • A strong sense of ownership; you're not just responsible for a single issue, but for a suite of product features that we deliver to the customer
