Love building well-designed UI tools and frameworks that empower engineers? We want to hear from you!

If you are a coding fanatic and passionate about programming, we want you to help us make a huge impact. Our clients love our product and are thirsty for more! 

At CB Insights we build products that help clients make sense of the future and drive their businesses forward using data. Our system retrieves large amounts of structured and unstructured data and uses scientific methods to extract knowledge and insights from that data. We present those analytics through a sophisticated, dynamic user interface which enables our clients to find answers to their most important questions. Our clients love our product and are thirsty for more!

Our UI Platform team works with product owners, designers, and across all feature teams to manage a design system and lead front end technical initiatives. As a UI Platform Engineer, you will be part of this cross-functional team focused on the next generation of tools and platforms our engineers use to build a world class user interface. Our crew uses state-of-the-art technologies and writes quality code that ships often.

We work with JavaScript, React/Redux, Webpack, Express, Node, and other technologies to build coherent user interfaces that make deep insights comprehensible to our users. We focus on modularity and reuse where it makes sense, while ensuring that there are no constraints to delivering world-class software continuously.

This is a great opportunity to join a growing team and shape the future of our next web platform.

Much of our software team has been with us for several years, despite a white-hot tech market with options galore. We attribute this to our collaborative, “teach and learn” culture where the role evolves with your interests.
