We solve the world's hardest problems with open data and open technology.
Development Seed is a unique and rewarding place to do this work. Over the past two decades, we have honed our approach of stewarding projects from opportunity to successful, impactful products. Our partners are working on interesting and important problems. Our technical teams are built of curious, empathetic people with high intrinsic motivation and a growth mindset. We open source a lot of our work, invest heavily in R&D that drives the field, and regularly reinvent the nature of our work.
As part of this team you will build open-science products and interfaces. Your primary contribution will be readable, maintainable code, but you should be comfortable communicating ideas about design and usability. You will help us continue to be our best by making framework and architectural recommendations, writing reusable components, and releasing open source libraries that improve the state of the art.
As a Development Seed team member, you
Not sure you tick all the boxes? We encourage you to apply. We have a culture of learning, and if this job description sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you.
Development Seed embraces diversity and equal opportunity in a serious way. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
The interview process consists of one-on-one interviews that may go in depth into technical topics and your project experience, but that won't test on arbitrary technical concepts. We also do a small paid project at the end of the process as a way to better get to know each other.
We actively examine how we work, what issues team members are facing, and how to best support and encourage the growth, confidence, and safety of everyone on the team. We use recurring 1:1s, mentorship, and learning plans to encourage personal and professional growth. Team members are encouraged to learn new skills, lead projects, and are given the space and autonomy to make decisions about their work. We're remote friendly, because wonderful teammates can come from anywhere. We're always improving how we communicate across time and distance, and do our best to respect the working hours of everyone in our wide-ranging set of time zones where team members live.
