DataMade is a small company where everyone is a programmer. As a Developer at DataMade, you’ll get to work with a variety of clients and build across all parts of our stack. On any given day, you might:
At DataMade, we have a pattern of trade apprenticeship. That means everyone is being trained to take on the role of their manager. It’s a model that emphasizes learning, growth, and increasing scope of responsibilities. In your first year, you’ll learn a lot about programming through increasingly difficult implementation tasks on client projects. The Lead Developers will provide you support, while keeping you consistently challenged. As you grow your skills, your scope of responsibility will increase from implementing work as a Developer, to managing work as a Lead Developer, to helping decide what work the company should pursue as a Partner.
Time outside of working hours is your own. While you’ll stay busy weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., you will not be expected to be available evenings or weekends.
We’re interested in working with people from a wide range of backgrounds. We’re excited to hear about your formal credentials, of course, but this role requires no prior professional programming or consulting experience. If you’ve worked a front desk, but you’ve never spoken to a government employee, we still want to hear from you.
Starting salary: $69,000 / year
