Description

Earthmover is an all-remote, early-stage startup whose mission is to empower our customers to use scientific data to address our planet’s most urgent challenges. We’re building a new data platform for multidimensional arrays with metadata based on open standards and open source software.

As Earthmover’s founding front-end / UX engineer, you will help shape the the core of Earthmover’s platform, building out our initial web UI and interfacing with the backend team through development of web APIs. If you are excited about building data tools that enable cutting-edge scientific and machine learning applications, this is the job for you.

In this role, you will:

  • Build our first customer-facing UI, from basic user profiles to browse and search of nested catalogs of scientific data,
  • Interact with users to continuously improve and optimize the user experience of our product, and
  • Own and maintain the front-end development tool chain,
  • Collaborate closely with the back-end devs to around the platform API layer and databases,
  • Collaborate with internal and external team members to develop and implement Earthmover’s design system as a collection of React components, themes, and other media,
  • Occasionally write Python or JS back-end code at the database or API level,
  • Wear many hats as our small startup learns and grows.

You must have:

  • 5+ years experience building software for the web and/or doing design work (could include a mix of full-stack, front-end engineering, web design, or similar),
  • Demonstrated success leading front-end development across multiple functional areas (design, api development, security),
  • Experience with React and Next.js,
  • A passion for our mission and a founders spirit, and
  • A portfolio of your work (e.g. open source code, websites, etc.).

Youʼll be an especially good fit if you have:

  • Experience operating independently in a high-growth startup environment,
  • Comfort in an all-remote workplace,
  • Experience using and developing web API frameworks (e.g. Flask, FastAPI, Express),
  • Experience developing enterprise-style SaaS features (user accounts, billing, authentication, etc.),
  • Experience using or building design systems,
  • Experience using design tools like Figma, Sketch, or InDesign, and

You should include in your application:

  • A link to your portfolio (GitHub, LinkedIn, personal website, etc.),
  • Your CV or a link to your LinkedIn profile, and
  • A paragraph on why you are excited about Earthmover and this role.
