Responsibilities

We are seeking an awesome front-end developer intern with the desire and skills needed to build sophisticated interfaces that optimize the user experience. We’re looking for someone who is passionate about design and eager to be in a place where their work has a real impact. This is a diverse role—you’ll be working on the user-facing product, back end administrative interfaces, and on marketing-related activities to help turn our significant traffic base into increased engagement and revenue.

About Our Engineers

We’re a small team of mostly MIT computer science grads who like hacking on business models and products as much as machine learning algorithms and browser-bending javascript. We’re a bunch of generalists who work on the entire stack; a given day’s checkins may include performance tweaks to our backend data processing pipeline, an updated multivariate landing page test, a parsing expression grammar for a new data source, upgrades to our deployment infrastructure to make better use of our CDN, or new parallelizing queries to make Panjiva search faster. Most of us have started companies before (one who co-founded a venture-backed company that was sold to VMware; another was a co-founder of a YCombinator company), love programming (one of our engineers has a lambda calculus tattoo), and enjoy discussing all aspects of the business and how our work impacts the global economy. Our development environment is highly collaborative, and we all teach as much as we learn. We launch new code many times a day, and have a lot of fun doing it. We are committed to building a cutting-edge company that is a place where engineers love to work.
