Do you want to build mission-driven technology? Do you want to engineer fresh ideas about civic tech? Do you want to create meaningful tools and websites?
DataMade is a data and web consultancy for civil society. We support our partners in working toward democracy, justice, and equity. We’re looking for a full-time developer to start in December 2019.
We’re a small and nimble company with a wide variety of projects, from web apps to data tools to data visualization and storytelling.
Take a look! Here are some examples of what we do:
Curious about the code? DataMade embraces a philosophy of open-source software. Check us out on GitHub.
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:
The primary role of the Developer is to work on client projects under the management of a Lead Developer or Partner.
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.
This list isn’t cumulative. If you’ve worked a front desk, but you’ve never shelled into a server, we still want to hear from you!
Notice that we don’t require “X years of experience in Y capacity.” 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 they’re not a requirement by any means.
Starting salary: $64,000
Is there a benefit that’s important to you that we’ve missed? Let us know and we’d be glad to consider it.
Members of populations that are underrepresented or marginalized in the tech, data or news industries are encouraged to apply! We strive to build a team with a diverse set of perspectives.
