Job Requirements YOU

You are the intersection of technology and design.

At Chartbeat we donít compromise form for function, and neither do you. User interaction, visual design, and clean code are equally important in great web apps and equally what you do best.

You work by visualizing a product and executing on it from start to finish - being involved every step of the way, and making decisions with the feedback of clients and your teammates. Youíll be meeting clients, working directly with product managers and your incredibly talented Engineering and Design teams.

Designing Engineers or Engineering Designers. Potayto, potahto.

Itís incredibly important to think about what youíre building while youíre building it. Youíre not just pulling together a mockup or building a spec, youíre building a working prototype, watching how people use it and adapting and iterating on it as you go.

Rapid prototyping, customer feedback, and responsive, intuitive design are your favorite things. Every challenge is one youíre willing to accept, and you wonít settle for half an answer, an OK solution.

You canít contain your creativity, customer empathy, and design sensibility anyway, so donít even try. Know youíre in good company.

About Our Company US

Chartbeat is a real-time analytics service designed for real-time action used by everyone from The Wall Street Journal to Al Jazeera. Weíre democratizing data by putting it in the hands of people who need it to make decisions and take action - right now. Our Meatpacking District, Manhattan Office is looking pretty damn good at three years old. Weíre full of incredible talent, funded by some of the top investors in the world (Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Index Ventures and Betaworks), and weíre growing. Fast.


Weíre an eclectic team of circumnavigating polar explorers, nunchuk-wielding data scientists, pint-sized Kansan product queens, Danish hackers and freakishly strong designers. We have opinions. Weíre expected to share them - right and wrong. And thatís how we build amazing things together every single day.

Weíre a startup, and we all have a stake in the business. So we work hard, but we trust you to work the hours that it takes to give us the best of you - 9am or 9pm. We donít track vacation because you can either make a decision on that with the good of the company in mind or you probably arenít right for us anyway.
