Why Join Us?

Winner of Strata 2014 Startup Showcase and featured by TechCrunch, VentureBeat, Gigaom, and others, we're an early stage start-up looking for passionate and talented people to help us change the way people think about data. We are heavily influenced by user-centric product design and see ourselves at the intersection of design and data. As part of a small but super-efficient engineering team, you’ll gain invaluable experience being part of the core engineering team that makes a big difference to the company's bottom line. Our goal is to enable anyone to combine data from various SaaS services (Salesforce, Pardot, Stripe, Eventbrite, etc) and use smart visualizations to understand and gain insight from the data that matters most to them, and we want your help!


Who Are You?

You’re an experienced front end web developer who loves challenges and is motivated to constantly learn. You are passionate about design yet appreciate that for design to be useful, it must serve a need. You can easily discuss the tradeoffs of various client-side Javascript frameworks, you look forward to running your code through performance analyzers to see where you can improve it, and you take just as much time to structure your LESS files as you do your Javascript.  Most of all, you have been looking for an opportunity to join a hot early stage data visualization startup and be part of a small core engineering team that is making a big difference in the company's bottom line.

About DataHero

We love to push the boundaries of design and technology and have fun doing it. We have fantastic office space in San Francisco's SoMa district with plenty of snacks and drinks on hand (including a dedicated, hard-working beer fridge).  When we’re not brainstorming new ways to make our users look like heroes, we're conquering the climbing wall, enjoying monthly team activities, or engaging in spirited conversations at our Friday Beer o'clock outings (though the topics frequently drift towards bacon or sports).

Founded by Big Data veteran Chris Neumann and consumer experience expert Jeff Zabel, DataHero is designed to enable users of any ability to quickly and easily understand the data that matters most to them. DataHero allows users to combine data from multiple SaaS sources, use smart visualizations and automatic analysis to gain insights, and collaborate with team members by sharing charts and dashboards, all through the convenience of a browser.
