As the Data Team’s first frontend engineer, you will be responsible for building visualizations in d3.js or another visualization library that present data to users throughout the organization in an appealing and easy-to-understand manner. You will follow design guidelines put in place by the Design Team to maintain the look and feel of the Teachable brand.

You will report to the Data Platform Manager and will implement visualizations and dashboards at the direction of the Lead Data Analyst.
