We want to meet talented front-end engineers and information design and presentation specialists to build out both user-facing visualizations of our platform insights and connections, but also our internal analytics tools and shared visualization components. Data is at core of what we do. We want to help people communicate better with words and numbers. What better way to achieve this goal than to first help people understand the issues and stories that matter to them. Beautiful intuitive visualizations can be enlightening. Internally, as a small team, quick insights into what our users are doing on the platform are essential to productivity and growth. You’ll play a critical role at Staance.

  • Strong sense of web UX, with experience building intuitive web interfaces that present data in compelling ways.
  • Solid front-end architecture and coding skills, and experience in building reusable components that fit together into scalable production applications.
