Part or full time position (80% – 100%) starting March 2017

Application Deadline: Friday, 17 Feb 2017

Who We Are

We are a Zürich-based design studio with a focus on data-driven digital products. We create tools and experiences that assist, connect, and delight people, always putting the human at the center of attention. We provide our services to a broad range of national and international clients in journalism, healthcare, education, financial services, and government. We work in cross-functional teams, combining our skills in design and engineering. Our work comes to life on the web, on mobile devices, and in interactive installations.

Who We're Looking For

We are looking for a motivated, smart and dedicated Interaction Engineer to join our team full or part time. You will build user interfaces and data visualizations in our team of engineers and designers, in close collaboration with our clients. You know the ins and outs of all major web technologies. You care deeply about bringing a design to life and understand the importance of the implementation to the user experience. You are independent in researching solutions and solving problems. While your focus is clearly on the front-end of a web application, you’re willing to tackle back-end tasks as well, like setting up and maintaining a Node.js web server, database, and the occasional CMS.

Requirements

  • Your JavaScript is well-architected following a functional programming approach
  • You write high-quality, cross-browser responsive CSS

  • Building open source tools for designers and developers

What We Offer

We offer generous employee benefits including five weeks of vacation, a half-fare card for public transportation, sponsored attendance of two conferences per year, and we cover all expenses for snacks, drinks, and lunch on workdays.

We encourage and support you to participate in our ongoing quest to improve how we work. With regular workshops, technical reviews, and self-initiated projects we help each other to become better as a team.

You will be working at our beautiful studio in Zürich equipped with all the tools you need. You experience a passionate, friendly and respectful environment where people matter the most.
