  • Strong Javascript / Typescript skills and familiarity with modern Javascript frameworks such as React and Angular.
  • Experience working on complex frontend products targeting technical customers, with exposure to infrastructure systems and data visualization frameworks such as d3 or visjs. Our platform targets analytical customers working with complex datasets, and a background with similar types of products is important to understanding their needs.
  • An excellent sense for good experience and visual design. You’ll be working closely with the product and design team, and will be key to shaping our user experience.
  • A flexible, collaborative working style. We’re a small team working in a rapidly evolving space. We’re looking for people that will help build a positive, supportive environment.
