Back River Search Group

Visualization Engineer

Back River Search - San Francisco, CA

Our client’s Interactive team puts user experience first. Our aim is to leave customers feeling more inspired, engaged and productive. The Visualization Engineer balances design and development to bring innovative concepts to life.

At heart, this role combines design sensibilities and technical know-how to develop both novel product features and interactive visualizations for external audiences. You'll work with teams to define and deliver interfaces that combine exploratory data analysis with explanatory insights. An eye for detail is critical as you iterate on complex interactions, animations and visualizations. Experience with performance optimization and responsive design will ensure data-driven, visual components that work fluidly across a variety of contexts.  

Several additional responsibilities move beyond UX engineering. You will build a deep understanding of our internal data models by querying and transforming analysis results. You will participate in the creation and support of data visualization standards and best practices across the company. You will explore emerging technologies and recommend their adoption.

Our customers include analysts at some of the world’s largest corporations, financial institutions, and government agencies.

What you have

  • 3+ years’ experience building responsive user interfaces and data visualizations using application frameworks (e.g. Vue, React) and graphics libraries (e.g D3.js, Three.js, Processing).
  • A portfolio of past projects that demonstrate this experience
  • A deep understanding of JS, CSS, HTML, SVG, Canvas and WebGL.Experience with data transformation and analysis (SQL, Python etc)
  • Experience building good, collaborative relationships across cross-functional teams.
  • An affinity for novel interactive approaches to narrative sequencing
