Must have skills:
Archipelo is building an intelligent code discovery platform that provides the best tools for developers to discover code in any form—and benefit through insights, recognition, and greater productivity. They are transforming code search to improve the practice of modern programming—using a graph-based approach drawing on data from the entire open source ecosystem. They're on a mission to build the world's best code discovery engine. Archipelo is well-funded by top investors in Silicon Valley, including the first investors of Google, Twitter, Zoom, LinkedIn, and Uber. Their team has backgrounds from NASA, LinkedIn, Facebook, Amazon, AWS, Cisco and MIT, Harvard, Stanford, and Berkeley.
Right now, they are seeking a Frontend Developer to lead technology development on the frontier of code discovery and developer productivity. A successful applicant is an expert in web application development—a wizard in the browser with deep knowledge of the presentation layer. You will help their team design, test and rapidly iterate on multiple products and services stemming from their core technology. You will write APIs, browser extensions, microsites, IDE integrations, bots and webhooks across services. You will help Archipelo visualize its rich dataset drawn from a diverse array of sources. You are the last one to hold the baton of design as they cross the finish line to deploy.
