  • Pitch, a new company from the makers of Wunderlist, is looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join our team in Berlin or remote. The demand for communicating visual insights and data stories has never been higher. However, designing and engineering accessible and effective visualizations or data applications is not trivial and requires expertise that spans data science, web engineering, and design. Our newly formed Data visualization team is a highly cross-functional team with an ambitious vision to own the intersection of these three areas. In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to define how Pitch users consume and interact with their data, elevate their experience when importing data from third party sources, and design visualizations so users can communicate their data to their audience.

    Who we are looking for

    • You have experience with HTML, CSS, Javascript and common web development technologies.
    • You have experience working with graphics on the web using SVG, Canvas, WebGL, and other related technologies.
    • You have experience with cutting-edge Javascript libraries and frameworks such as React and D3 are preferred. Experience with ClojureScript is a plus, but not required.
    • You are knowledgeable and passionate about data visualization, and can comfortably design or critique visual representations of data or data interfaces.
    • You have solid UI or UX skills, with experience building web and/or mobile interfaces for displaying information. You effectively consider users with varying technical proficiency and data literacy levels.
    • You have knowledge of query languages, APIs, data pipelines, and how to work with them in practice.
    • You are motivated and able to work independently, with experience developing an idea into a polished product.
    • You have appreciation of good design and proven design sense, preferably with a portfolio of work you are excited to share.

    What you'll do

    • You will improve Pitch's new chart and graph tools and work with designers to help improve the graph-making experience for users.
    • You will help create data integration experiences for Pitch's users, helping them present their external data in an engaging way.
    • You will join a growing team of experienced developers building a cross-platform application, backend services and open platform.
    • You will collaborate with your peers to define architecture, quality standards, and best practices.
    • You will work closely with our designers, teaming up in small cross-functional teams to bring features from idea to prototype to final implementation.
    • You will work on frontend and possibly backend projects to build simple, high-quality, maintainable, and well-tested solutions.
    • You will implement our decisions in Clojure(Script).
