We are looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join Quansight Labs and our mission of supporting the PyData open-source ecosystem. As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will lead our internal web-related projects and contribute to the community-driven open-source projects supported by Quansight Labs. We are seeking great engineers who are passionate about web development, open source, accessibility and who possess a collaborative and community-first mindset.
Quansight Labs has its roots in the Python data science community. Our founders have had significant involvement in the creation and maintenance of NumPy, SciPy, Jupyter, Spyder, Dask, Conda, Numba, and other projects and PyData NumFOCUS, and Anaconda. Our not-for-profit mission at Quansight Labs is to provide a core development team for the PyData ecosystem and sustain community-driven open-source software. We do this with support from our sibling services organisation, Quansight, by applying for grants and working with companies who pay for our innovative Community Work Orders. Labs members primarily work directly on open-source projects but may spend up to 50% of their time working on open-source related consulting projects.
We are building a company of people who care deeply about open-source projects and communities and their long-term sustainability. Our team is geographically distributed, and working in the open is the norm. We believe in a culture of do-ers, learners, and collaborators. We are looking for people who are motivated, humble, curious, and respectful of others.
