Join a team developing the next-generation of tools for data-driven scientific discovery. Stencila aims to lower the barriers to reproducible research and enable collaboration between researchers with different levels of technical expertise. We're looking for a full-time software engineer to lead development of novel user interfaces for data exploration, visualization and analysis.\n\n* [Stencila](https://stenci.la) is building a toolbox of modular, interoperable software components for researchers ranging from Stencila [Dockter](https://github.com/stencila/dockter) (a command line tool that makes it easier to create Docker images) to Stencila [Hub](https://hub.stenci.la) (a web app that integrates our tools with third party services like Github and Dropbox) - and plenty of others in between!\n* We're passionate about making data-driven discovery more accessible to more people and closing the gaps in collaboration between coders and non-coders.\n* We’re obsessed with building tools that make simple thing easy and complex things possible.\n* With funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation we are building a core team to take Stencila from a prototype to production.\n* We are a small diverse, 100% remote, 100% open-source team linked to a broad open source and open science community.\n\n# Responsibilities\n * Be part of the team designing and implementing an open, extensible architecture for user interfaces for data-driven discovery.\n* Work with our product designer to design, build, test, and deploy user interfaces for data analysis and visualization.\n* Be involved in user testing to understand usability problems that users are having. Then fix those problems.\n* Engage with the open-source developer community to encourage contributions. Improve documentation, merge pull requests, respond to issues. \n\n# Requirements\n#### About you\n\n* You are passionate about understanding how our users think, what their problems are, and building engaging user experiences that solve those problems.\n* You are an engineer with a sense of aesthetics: you have strong technical skills and can build a beautiful interface.\n* You are keen to join in-person user workshops, value user feedback, and act upon it.\n* Are committed to open-source and know from experience what it takes to grow a community around open-source software.\n* Have a strong bias towards getting it done; you choose completion over perfection. You get a buzz out of getting things shipped.\n* Take initiative, ownership and responsibility; you don’t need to wait for permission, don’t mind admitting you were wrong, and fix things when you are.\n* Want to work as part of a diverse team with complementary skills; you give support and take advice.\n* Comfortable working across time zones as part of a small, remote, geographically distributed team. You review asynchronous feedback, and get to work independently. \n* You are comfortable regularly communicating on wins, progress, and roadblocks.\n\n#### Your Skills & Experience\n\n* Experienced at building, testing, and deploying user interfaces in Javascript.\n* Familiar with frontend frameworks like React, Vue and Polymer and state management approaches such as Redux, Mobx, and GraphQL.\n* At home with modern front-end languages e.g. ES2016, Typescript, and build tools e.g. Webpack, Rollup, NPM\n* Experienced in test driven development and testing frameworks e.g. Jest, Puppeteer.\n* Experienced at building from mockups using modern CSS approaches and frameworks e.g Bulma, Tailwind, Semantic UI\n* It’s a nice-to-have if you have a research or science background working with data.\n* Proficient in the English language, both written and verbal\n\n#### Compensation\n\nUS $100,000
