Our entrepreneurial spirit and uncompromising ethics guide everything we do. It’s all in the name of helping investors.

Responsibilities:
•    Collaborate with peers to create and implement beautiful, interactive data visualizations 
•    Build flexible solutions using modern, front-end software engineering best practices
•    Communicate conceptual ideas to a variety of audiences effectively
•    Design, develop, test, improve, deploy, and maintain software
•    Mentor and train other team members on system design techniques and coding standards


Preferred qualifications:
•    BS degree in computer science or similar technical field of study, or equivalent practical experience
•    Full stack software development experience using JavaScript and Node.js
•    Experience with frameworks (D3, Vue, React, Vuex, Redux)
•    Experience with CI/CD tools (Jenkins, Docker)
•    Familiarity with tools and languages for data analysis and visualization (Python, R, Excel, Tableau)
•    Excellent interpersonal skills and ability to build solid working relationships
•    Ability to speak and write English fluently
