Come work with us

Frontend Engineer


Chartbeat is a real-time analytics service designed for real-time action used by everyone from The Wall Street Journal to Al Jazeera. We're democratizing data by putting it in the hands of people who need it to make decisions and take action - right now. Just before our 4th birthday we moved into our own sprawling office in Union Square, Manhattan. We are packing it full of incredible talent. Thanks to years of hard work and amazing funding by some of the top investors in the world (Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Index Ventures, and Betaworks) we're growing, and growing quickly.

Our Team

We're an eclectic team of circumnavigating polar explorers, coffee connoisseur data scientists, pint-sized Kansan product queens, triathlon-fit hackers and freakishly strong designers. We have opinions. We're expected to share them - right and wrong. And that's how we build amazing things together every single day.

We're a startup, and we all have a stake in the business. So we work hard, and we trust you to work the hours it takes to give us the best of you. We don't track vacation because you can either make a decision on that with the good of the company in mind or you probably aren't right for us anyway.


You dig technology done right.

As our newest frontend engineer, you'll be joining the ranks of our ads team and working on everything that makes Chartbeat awesome. Where to begin, where to begin...

We're extending our current ad engagement services, but there's also brand new stuff to build this year that we have yet to raise the curtain on. On top of helping make those things come to life, you'll also be creating widgets, sidebars, browser extensions, and mobile apps - pretty much everything we can brainstorm into production that will change the way our clients think about and use advertising data.

You're in love with the startup world and want to make your mark in it.

You understand that our top focus is to change the metrics of the advertising space and that includes focusing on quality content engagement, not zombie armies of clicks and impressions. You also get that it's not just about creating a great product experience, it's about re-imaging value in advertising.

We're a startup, so we're a small and flexible team with pretty fluid role definitions. You know that things move fast and change frequently around here, but you thrive in the type of environment where everybody jumps in to solve a challenge. Your impact on our frontend features and new products will be huge. Are you ready for that level of responsibility?

Your day-to-day

  • Development of the frontend logic and UI
  • Participating in designing and implementing new features
  • Integrating ad server platforms because you know how the ecosystem works
  • Evolving the architecture of the frontend
  • Integrating with, and possibly extending, backend APIs

Your Know-How

  • A love for building frontend features
  • Unparalleled expertise working with JS/HTML5/CSS in previous roles
  • Hands-on experience with ad servers (Doubleclick, OAS, OpenX, etc.)
  • Fluent in LESS, CSS transitions and Canvas
  • Background in implementing major UI's/UI components
  • Super huge ++ for Angular, Google Closure Toolkit, Python, Django
