Description

AI4Govt is a rising technology startup focusing on social impact by empowering government employees with the latest technology. Founded in 2019, AI4Govt has already earned awards and contracts from local municipalities to some of the largest federal agencies in the United States.  We are a group of civic-minded technologists with a passion for user-centric approaches to government software. 

This is an incredible opportunity to work and learn from a unique team with over two decades of FAANG engineering and product management experience as well as advanced degrees from top-tier institutions. Two of the co-founders, Ni and Peter, both received M.B.A.s at Harvard Business School and possess relevant government experience. Ni worked alongside the former U.S. Deputy CTO Nick Sinai on the U.S. Treasury’s usaspending.gov API. Peter managed cyber-network operations overseas as a First Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. The technical co-founder, Henry, was a tech lead with more than ten years of experience at Apple and eBay.

Come join AI4GOVT in making a difference in the world at the intersection of technology and government.   Be part of a team that is empowering government agencies, from local municipalities to the largest federal agencies, through the latest advances in machine learning technology to understand massive data sets in the most ambitious, user-centric designs.  

As a front-end React.js developer, you will be responsible for creating the next-generation platform that automates analysis on massive, disparate data sets.  Your primary focus will be developing user interface components and implementing them following well-known React.js workflows (such as Flux or Redux). You will ensure that the interface components and the overall application are robust, intuitive, and easy to maintain. You will work cross-functionally with engineering, product, and sales teams on various layers of the infrastructure and product. Therefore, a commitment to collaborative problem-solving, sophisticated design and attention to detail is a must.  The tentative project timeline is mid-November to late-January.
