JavaScript Job Details

Factal is looking for a developer experienced in Django and Javascript to join our Seattle-based technology team (remote US candidates welcome). Factal is a quickly-growing news and technology startup that provides real-time coverage and data to help protect people from harm and help those in need. We think of breaking news in a fundamentally new way, applying journalists and technologists together to solve new information problems in an increasingly volatile world.

The ability to code Javascript and Python/Django at least an intermediate level is pretty important. We have a web application (a blend of features akin to working on Twitter, Facebook, Maps, and News apps), as well as administrative interfaces that need good design thinking and smart execution. Your role would be developing interactive interfaces for our users, as well as internal tools for our team of editors.

The ideal candidate:

  • Has developed a complex web application/interface using combination of Javascript, Django, Python, and PostgreSQL
  • Has experience dealing with geographic data such as shapefiles, spatial queries, and mapping SDKs
  • Doesn't need complex instructions/specs/workflows to get things done
  • Has experience working on high-use, large-scale applications
  • Prefers to work for a small company, one with a mission, and wants to contribute

Factal pays competitively, and we offer equal employment opportunities to all candidates. Factal does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, retaliation, parental status, military service or other non-merit factor.
