A bit about us:

Our client is looking for a Frontend JavaScript Engineer to build impactful products supporting partners at organizations like NASA to further their goals around making Open Science more transparent, inclusive, accessible, and reproducible. This requires state-of-the-art tooling for scientists to produce and publish algorithm documentation and metadata for their data products. They are actively building a number of tools that allow science teams to collaborate more effectively on documentation for their data products, and ultimately make it easier for the broader public to use them.

As part of this team you will build open-science products and interfaces. Your primary contribution will be readable, maintainable code, but you should be comfortable communicating ideas about design and usability. You will help us continue to be our best by making framework and architectural recommendations, writing reusable components, and releasing open source libraries that improve the state of the art.

Why join us?

Collaborate — Working as a team makes us stronger than any individual developer. You write clear Github tickets and communicate effectively on Slack and in-person.
Learn — We constantly evolve our technology stack and techniques to deliver the best work to our partners. You don’t need to know any particular language or framework upfront but you need to demonstrate you’re able and excited to learn new ways to build.
Code — You write code focusing on both performance and maintainability. You write detailed documentation before and after writing code.
Respect — We are a diverse team spread across the globe. You value other’s perspective, voice, and ideas. You treat everyone with dignity and professionalism.
Care about the world and believe that we can do better — Social change is the foundation of everything we do. You are impatient about solving the world’s toughest challenges.
