Analytics Media Group is hiring a

Frontend Engineer

We're looking for engineers with broad and deep skill sets and experiences to help move us forward. We want self-starters who will bring distinctive expertise but who are excited to step outside their comfort zone and learn new skills. If you’re eager to pick up new languages, paradigms, and technologies, we want to talk.

As a frontend developer at AMG, you’ll be expected to wear a number of hats. You will be responsible for writing both clean, DRY, and performant Rails code as well as designing an outstanding user interface and experience. Working alongside business users, analysts, and backend developers, you will need to have a deep understanding of the terabytes of data available and use tools like D3.js to come up with innovative ways to present them to end-users in ways that are both beautiful - and useful.

ABOUT AMG

We are a tech and media analytics startup that grew out of the 2012 Obama Campaign where we used individual-level data to change the way the campaign spent their $500M media budget. Though we were outspent, our ability to target our audience in a sophisticated way meant our dollars were better spent than the opposition.

We're bringing this methodology (and scrappiness!) to a broad array of clients who range from Fortune 500 consumer companies to political candidates and interest groups. And we have made waves - check out the New York Times Magazine profile of our approach:

  • Master's in Computer Science, Information Science, or a related field
  • Expert frontend skills and user interface design knowledge
  • Familiarity with a Javascript framework (e.g. Backbone, Ember, Angular)
  • Experience using D3 or other frontend data visualization libraries
  • Experience working with large amounts of structured and unstructured data
  • Familiarity with a statistical package such as R, Matlab, or SPSS
  • Work from Home Friday
  • A kitchen stocked with sodas, snacks, yogurt and other goodies
  • A pretty great view of the Empire State building from our office
  • A tight knit start up community who likes to eat! We celebrate everyone’s birthdays, have frequent team lunches, and do events in and out of the office
  • AMG is an active participant in conferences
