We are looking for curiously brilliant individuals to join our team as we reinvent data analytics. Get data-driven and see yourself at Looker.

The engineering team at Looker is a tight-knit group of high-performers. We value simplicity in both our code and our user interfaces. We don’t believe in large teams; we opt for small, diverse groups that move fast, communicate clearly and achieve more.  We try to choose the right tool for the job, not one tool to solve all problems. We make a huge impact on product direction, we experiment, and we iterate rapidly.

  • Solve complex web engineering problems
  • Balance and prioritize software quality attributes (performance, maintainability, security, etc..)
  • Be a nuanced communicator and foster a collegial atmosphere while giving and receiving feedback
  • Be a tireless advocate for the end user

  • 2+ years specializing in areas of front end engineering
