We are 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. We 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.
Development Seed is a unique and rewarding place to do this work. Over the past two decades, we have honed our approach of stewarding projects from opportunity to successful, impactful products. Our partners are working on interesting and important problems. Our technical teams are built of curious, empathetic people with high intrinsic motivation and a growth mindset. We open source a lot of our work, invest heavily in R&D that drives the field, and regularly reinvent the nature of our work.
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.
