Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Software Development


Thorn is a non-profit focused on building technology to defend children from sexual abuse. Working at Thorn gives you the opportunity to apply your skills, expertise, and passions to directly impact the lives of vulnerable and abused children. Our staff solves dynamic, quickly evolving problems with our network of partners from tech companies, NGOs, and law enforcement agencies. If you are able to bring clarity to complexity and lightness to heavy problems, you could be a great fit for our team. 

Last year, we took the stage at TED and shared our audacious goal of eliminating child sexual abuse material from the internet. 

About the Role:

Law enforcement doesn’t have enough time to navigate the online commercial sex market to find children and identify their traffickers. Spotlight takes this massive amount of data and turns it into an asset for law enforcement. The objective of Spotlight is to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of domestic sex trafficking investigations and increase the number of children who are identified and connected with help resources. Learn more about Spotlight.

What You'll Do:

  • Collaborate with other engineers on your team to build complex client application features built on top of hundreds of terabytes of data.

  • Work closely with the product manager and engineers to define product requirements, and collaborate to devise optimal engineering solutions.

  • Create technical specifications, prototypes, and presentations to communicate your ideas.

  • Play a critical role in day-to-day coding, code reviews, and troubleshooting production issues.

  • Drive technical innovation by researching and incorporating new technologies and tools into our core system.

Skills We're Seeking:

  • You have a commitment to putting the children we serve at the center of everything you do.

  • You have proficient software development knowledge with experience building, growing, maintaining a variety of products, and a love for creating elegant applications using modern technologies.

  • You have experience prototyping, implementing, testing, and deploying code to production.

  • You can work with shifting requirements and collaborate with internal stakeholders.

  • You have empathy and can be a strong advocate for our users while balancing the vision and constraints of engineering realities.

  • You communicate clearly, efficiently, and thoughtfully. We’re a highly-distributed team, so written communication is crucial, from Slack to pull requests to code reviews.

Technologies We Use:

You should have non-trivial experience with React and SQL, but we’re excited about teaching folks that have the desire and ability to learn the rest. 

  • React / TypeScript

  • Node / Express

  • MemSQL (MySQL-compatible relational database)

  • Docker / Kubernetes

  • AWS

Thorn is a strong and flexible team because of the diverse backgrounds of our staff. This includes professional background, subject matter expertise, culture, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression, language, hobbies, etc. We strongly encourage women, minorities, and people from underrepresented backgrounds to apply. Your skills are needed here.
