We are looking for a remarkable Senior Front-End Software Engineer to join us! We’ve built a team of not just the best engineers, but some really awesome humans as well. This team builds cloud software (platform + apps + ecosystem) to accelerate the flow of government data into the hands of citizens, developers, businesses and researchers. We look to improve our customers’ program outcomes through solutions that use their data to permit discovery, insight, and action.



This means a few things: 



We are open to candidates who are located just about anywhere in the U.S., not just Seattle. Our team will remain distributed after the pandemic ends.

Front-End Software Engineers here build experiences that the amazing workers within the public sector around the world rely upon to use the data they have in abundance to drive better decisions and serve their communities more effectively.


In this role you will:

        Build and ship high-quality customer-facing features every day.

        Play an active role in hiring and mentoring other engineers.

        Collaborate with business stakeholders to design and architect solutions to our business problems.


We want to hear from you if:

        You have significant HTML, CSS, and JavaScript experience - at least 4 years for our current need for team members with more experience. We are currently using React/ES2016 supported by Redux, jQuery, Lodash, Typescript and Ruby on Rails.

        You want to build customer-facing experiences that encourage transparency and drive better, more efficient governance.

        You care about scalable, robust, well-tested code and have experience with testing frameworks like Mocha, Chai, RSpec or similar tools.

        You want to work in company where everybody believes in a shared mission and has a strong sense of shared responsibility.

        You provide code reviews to your team members, especially any more junior engineers on the team.

        You are a strong communicator, both within and outside of engineering, with a willingness to both mentor and teach when appropriate.

We especially want to hear from you if:

        You have experience working with data visualization—using D3,, Vega, or similar.

        You are comfortable making technical decisions when there is no clear correct answer.

        You have a proven track record of shipping great products.

        You are innovative in both your ideas and solutions to problems.

        You are not afraid to hold yourself accountable and learn from mistakes.
