Job Summary: 

Are you a coder who wants to bring scientific data to the web in beautiful, interactive ways? Our team connects open environmental data with people making sustainable environmental decisions.

We work with the best open source tools and are continually improving our products as we learn and grow. We’re looking for team players who are passionate about what they do. You should like to tinker, but love finishing projects even more. You are strongest working with server side tools (php, Ubuntu, NGINX), but we are a small team so there is room to help out with the range of technology we use, which includes Postgres/PostGIS, python, Leaflet, D3, QGIS, R, Mapnik and Tilemill. You will be able to provide input on how things are made.

Skills we’re looking for:

  • Back-end web development
  • Server Admin
  • Interest or experience in mapping, data viz or statistics is a plus
  • A commitment to continual improvement, and willingness to share and explore new ideas with other team members.

We have a new office close to town with free parking, and easy access by bus or bike (we are right on Lochside Trail). Great coffee and industry leading benefits are some of the perks. You can work in the OS of your choice.
