Front end react developer

Hiring: Front End Javascript Developer with React experience

Hi! I'm Dave Stevens, Co-founder & CEO of Chartlytics. We're looking for a very passionate front-end  javascript developer to help us build the most powerful behavior measurement platform for accelerating learning outcomes across all of human learning the world has ever seen! Phew...  

Accelerating learning outcomes

We are focused on helping those with special needs realize their potential by providing their care givers with a “GPS for learning”. With my business partner, Dr. Rick Kubina (Professor of Special Education at Penn State) we are transforming how teachers, analysts, coaches, and trainers understand the effects of their instruction on individuals so they can make more timely decisions to produce accelerated outcomes.

Watch this, it’s real, we have hundreds of these stories that we’re getting ready to tell.

We are helping service providers change lives through data science, and we need passionate developers that really want to change the world.

Remote FTW!

We all work remotely. We use slack, github, zoom, to communicate with each other regularly. We're fun, candid and focused on building good software and good solutions. We're bootstrapping the company so there are no VC's or angels to change our business model and force us down paths we'd rather not go. This has it's pros and cons but we're at least in control of our own destiny. If you're looking for free lunches, a built in spa and gym, and a bus to pick you up because you have nowhere to park your car - we're not for you. :)

Visualize all the things

We are in business to make it easier for educators to use data to make quick, reliable and concrete decisions. How do you do that? Data-viz! We use D3.js extensively in our app, and while we’ve built a lot, there is so much more we can do. Have you read Edward Tufte? If you have, you are one of us.
