Building a more environmentally intelligent society at government, industry, and community levels
UI / Front End Developer
Aclima’s mission is to provide governments, businesses, and communities with a new class of environmental intelligence to reduce air pollution and climate-changing emissions.
Aclima was founded to deliver on its mission of protecting people and the planet by putting air pollution on the map, through an entirely new approach to environmental quantification and analysis. Since 2008, Aclima has invested in extensive R&D to pioneer the science of hyperlocal air quality measurement and analysis. In parallel, we’ve been building the capabilities required to engage and support local communities, and deliver products that meet the unique needs of policymakers and businesses.
The company has developed and validated its science and technology through international deployments, partnerships with leading scientific institutions, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and deep collaboration with both the public and private sectors. Aclima holds some of the earliest patents in this space, for networked, wearable and mobile air quality sensing and associated methodologies.
Aclima was recognized as a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, was named one of the prestigious Global Cleantech 100 companies, and our CEO Davida Herzl has been named one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative People in Business. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, CA. For more information, visit www.aclima.io.
Our aim is to help people understand and act upon environmental data. We are looking for a passionate UI / Front End Developer to create elegant online tools that simplify problems, automate tasks, and expand environmental intelligence. You’ll be taking your love for creative design combined with logical problem solving to develop fluid and natural web experiences.
Today, our data interfaces live on the web; tomorrow they may be on phones, walls, in virtual reality, or as part of AI assistants. We are always envisioning and experimenting.
We work in a focused, purpose-driven atmosphere which encourages rapid iteration, crazy ideas, and collaborative empathy. Aclima is unique in its breadth of multi-disciplinary work; expect to collaborate with climate scientists, electrical engineers, lab technicians, data scientists, product managers, and more on a regular basis.
Because of our open-ended problem space, we emphasize flexibility, core knowledge, and openness to learn. We believe great interfaces need to be wherever our insights are.
